Education Hour Launches on November 29

Education Hour Launches on November 29

First United Methodist Church of Allen is excited to announce the debut of our new “Education Hour.”

On Sunday, November 29, our Sunday school classes and other small groups will return to in-person meetings. We’ve renamed our Sunday morning time for Bible training and fellowship the “Education Hour,” and classes will meet from 9:45am to 10:45am in classrooms and meeting rooms throughout the church.

We’ve strategically scheduled this time for children, youth, and adults to fall in between our two new sanctuary services: The Table at 8:40am and the Traditional Worship Service at 11:00am.

In addition to this new schedule, we are pleased to offer two Advent studies, which kick off the first week of Advent. Bah! Humbug! Christmas is Coming with Rev Brian McPherson begins on Sunday, November 29, at 9:45am in the Fellowship Hall. On Monday, November 30, we offer Light of the World with Rev Mary Beth Hardesty-Crouch, a study that will meet virtually via Zoom at 12:00pm.

If you are interested in attending Rev McPherson’s class, please pre-register at the links provided so that we can allow for adequate physical distancing in the classroom. We also require pre-registration for Rev Hardesty-Crouch’s class so that we can email you the Zoom link before class time.

While many groups will be returning to meeting in the church facility during the Education Hour, others will continue to meet online (or virtually) on Sundays or at other times during the week. The table available on our website lists the meeting times and locations for all of Sunday school classes.

For more information about these virtual classes, please contact your class leader or Susan Hale for meeting times.
