Opportunities for Study @FUMC Brenham    


Sunday School Classes and locations

     Adult Education - Classes meet at 9:45 or 10:00am

If you would like more information on any of these classes you can contact Jennifer Patrick at
Epiphany Class
The Epiphany class meets throughout the year in the Fellowship House across the street. The class begins at 10:00 a.m. This class is open to adults of all ages and will involve both lecture and discussion. Topics have included: a series on the Sermon on the Mount, The Old Testament, Methodism, etc. 
Wesley Class
The Wesley Sunday School Class has been serving members continually at FUMC for more than 50 years. It is made up of adults who study the Adult Bible Studies from The New International Uniform Series. The class begins at 9:45 A.M. with announcements of up coming events and prayer concerns followed by prayer.  The class meets in Room 126. The group enjoys singing hymns and observing birthdays and anniversaries. Teachers have assigned Sundays to teach the lessons so one teacher does not have to teach every Sunday. Class projects are giving memorial money gifts when a member dies and supporting some other needs in the community. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
Fellowship Class
The Fellowship Class meets in the Fellowship Room, located in the office area of the Education Building and opens its doors to persons of all ages – single or married. Issues for presentation and discussion are usually short term in duration and represent a variety of theological and biblical perspectives to help persons bring meaning to daily living. Leadership is provided by class members or clergy and lively discussion is encouraged. Studies have included: “Difficult Passages in the Bible”, “Putting Faith into Action”, etc. This class meets for dinner out on the third Friday (usually) of each month at a place the group chooses. Come fellowship with us!
Faithbuilders Class
The Faithbuilders Class is, as our name implies, a fellowship of believers who are consistently seeking to build our faith in God and in His Son, to build our faith in others and in ourselves. We seek to grow in our faith in all of these areas by studying the Word, learning from others of great faith, and learning from each other.  Learning can be fun!  We believe, as Jesus indicated so many times, in fellowshipping together.  This great fellowship has taught us much about loving others and caring for others, in our class, in our church and in our community.  We laugh a lot, we care a lot, we learn a lot - come join us!
Youth and Children
Please visit the Children's Page for information on Sunday School for this age group.

Wednesday Night Study Groups


Disciple Bible Study

Beginning on Wednesday, September 27 we will offer Disciple Bible Study which will be led by Pastor T.J. Gabelman.  The Disciple Bible Study Program provides an effective and exciting opportunity for participants to grow in their understanding of the Bible and the meaning and value of Scripture for their daily lives in a collective setting of like-minded individuals. 

The Disciple Bible Study is a 34 week class that goes through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. We will meet from 6:45-8:45 pm each Wednesday night which includes a video segment as well as time to reflect and discuss what was studied during the week. There are also weekly daily study assignments. The cost for Disciple Bible Study is $65 a person (there are scholarship opportunities available, please don’t let money be an issue for not being a part).

Through DISCIPLE, persons are strengthened in their faith and guided into service and ministry. The program focuses on the disciple as learner, believer, follower, proclaimer, and servant while providing the fellowship of a small group for study, prayer, preparation, support, and servanthood.

There will be a display set up in the parlor and activity center starting this Sunday, September 3rd after each service where you can view the material, ask questions and sign up. You can also contact Pastor T.J. for more information. Space is limited to only 12-15 people.
