LOGOS Spiritual Growth Classes

9:15 a.m. Sundays

LOGOS means many things. It means the rational ordering of the cosmos and the logic of human thought. It means "thoughtful discourse" like the conversations we have about important, difficult, and life-giving matters. It means "word," as in "In the beginning was the Word," whom Christians find embodied in Jesus. In the spirit of all of these meanings, we invite you to join us for LOGOS as we explore a range of topics related to our faith, our world, and our lives together. Each month features a new topic. Come for one session or come for them all. 

Come learn, ask, and grow! Bring a friend! All LOGOS classes meet at 9:15 on Sunday mornings in the Library. Childcare available.

Be You, Be Loved, Belong classes

Be You, Be Loved, Belong is a three-hour course with Rev. Diane that connects you with University UMC through shared stories, giftedness, and calling. Completing this course provides the entry point for membership, adult baptism, or baptism for your child at University United Methodist Church.  

During the class, we'll share our stories, explore how the baptismal covenant affects our daily lives, and discover how God has gifted us to serve. Each participant will be paired with a sponsor from the congregation (tell Rev. Diane if you have someone in mind). To sign up for the next class, email Rev. Diane.

Dinners for Eight

Get to know your church family a little better through our seasonal “Dinners for Eight!” We kick off each September and February with new groups of eight who share a monthly potluck meal together. Members take turns choosing a location, such as a member's home, a park, or at the church. Singles, couples, and families with children are welcome. 

This is a great way to build friendship and connect on a deeper level with the people in the pew next to you. Pairings are made at random, so let John Mohr know if you would like to be included! (You can also let him know if you’ve participated previously but no longer wish to continue.) Bon appetit!

Book Club

Each month, the Book Club selects a new book to read and discuss on the first Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. Information about meeting locations/ host contact info is posted on Headlines and in the Bulletin. 

Lunch Bunch

This long-time group of older adults meets for lunch and laughter at The Brookdale in Creve Coeur every fourth Thursday at 11:30 a.m. All are welcome. To RSVP for any month, email Art Bulger at least a day before the lunch.
