We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.
At KUMC, we believe in the ministry of Christian education and formation. We believe that this ministry is the foundation for lifelong learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith. Through intentional learning and Christian formation, we become the people God calls us to be, and we develop gifts and strengths for encouraging and leading others to the same strong faith. KUMC offers Sunday School classes for all ages, led by nuturing and committed volunteers. These classes meet each Sunday from 9:45 a.m. until 10:40 a.m. Become part of our journey to a deeper, more personal connection today!

Youth in grades 6-12 meet together each week to learn more about a variety of Biblical topics. We use studies which strives to help youth develop their Christian identity and live the Christian faith in the context of our contemporary culture. Each week our youth explore relevant information about current issues that have immediate impact on their lives, apply the scripture to these issues, and carry-out stimulating discussions and self-examination as they consider serious topics, make value judgments, and apply Biblical principles to real-world situations.
Fun, interactive classes are offered for all ages - preschool through grade 5. Using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach to Bible study, we introduce children to the great stories of the Bible and basic biblical principles. Our children's Sunday School uses Grow, Proclaim, Serve, Cokesbury's seasonal curriculum, which helps children learn the Bible through movement, songs, art activities, and more! Monthly Bible stories and Bible verses are shared using a learning center approach with colorful visuals that enhance stories and delight the children.
