Bible Studies

Whether you are new to reading the Bible or someone who has grown up with it, we offer a place where the riches of the world’s greatest book can be more deeply explored. We also offer various other classes which will help you grow in other ways as well.

“Plug in” each fall, spring and summer to a variety of Bible studies and courses at Custer Road UMC. Regardless of where you are in your spiritual walk, there is something here for you. Take this journey with us as we learn, grow and fellowship together. Within Adult Ministry at Custer Road, it is our goal to create and foster environments that provide you with an opportunity to Discover, Build and Expand your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Studies for Men

    • This class is held on Thursdays from 8:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.  Beginning on March 8, 2018.  This class costs $25, is held in room B5 and will be led by Jeremy Holman.   Register HERE.   We’ve all had dreams of being an expert parent or at least of raising polite, confident, and compassionate children.  Then we had children.  Wonderful plans quickly devolved into chaotic problem-solving, or finding “quick fixes” for our parenting troubles. Surviving each day is much easier than taking the time and energy to consider how your current parenting actions are impacting your child’s future.  Unfortunately, quick and easy isn’t the same as good and effective. Doug and Cathy Fields have put together a workbook and video that provides you with 10 actions that will help you move from a Quick-Fix Parent to an Intentional Parent.  These 10 actions are doable! You can get started implementing these ideas into your parenting and you will see immediate results in your child—no matter their age.  Do you want to see the five C’s in your children?
      • display confidence
      • develop character
      • have strong convictions
      • express compassion
      • become competent young adults

If so, this is the class to help you achieve those results. This WORKBOOK (with videos) is a combination book & study guide. Read, reflect, write, practice and change. You and your child will be glad you did
