Adult Sunday School


BUMC is looking forward to resuming our Sunday School programs for all ages. Adults have three options to choose from on Sunday mornings (see below for more info). Please note that while Beyond and Faith-Filled Parenting follow the same schedule as our children’s and youth classes, the PTR class gets a slightly earlier start (9:45 am).


Faith-Filled Parenting

Join facilitators Dennis Williams, Sue Owen, Lance Leverenz & Rev. HiRho for the opportunity to gather with other parents as we navigate the sometimes challenging task of raising children from a faith-filled perspective. This class is conversation-based and a great opportunity to connect with other parents in our faith community. We’ll be starting out the fall by getting to know each other a bit and also by sharing our back to school experiences as we continue to navigate the pandemic. 10:00 - 10: 45 a.m. in Room 207 and online.  Email Beth Reilly, for more information or the zoom link.




The Beyond Sunday School class looks to take us beyond what we know, beyond Sunday morning worship, and beyond the church building.  We’ll begin the year by looking at the UMC Social Creed and then discuss a different aspect of Social Justice each week along with the scriptures that guide our Methodist understanding of these issues. Join us for some thoughtful discussion that will hopefully lead you to consider how you might live differently beyond the walls of BUMC.  10:00 - 10:45 a.m. in Room 205, For more information, or the Zoom link, please contact Rev. Scott at 



Ready to stretch your mind? The long-running and ever thought- provoking PTR class will be back in action with Don Ross this fall looking at the most famous of the American Pragmatists, William James. We will begin with a discussion of the history of American Pragmatism. Then we will explore how James uses that viewpoint in his many writings on the philosophy of religion. Come stretch your mind with us!  9:45-10:40 a.m.  in Room 209 and online. For more information or the Zoom link, email
