The Aldersgate Class is the longest existing class at First United Methodist Church, McAllen. Organized in 1952 as a young people’s class, it continues today for older adults. Men and women, who are interested in study of the Bible and Bible related topics, come together and learn how it relates to how we live in this day and time. They use the Adult Study Series with several class members rotating the teaching responsibilities. Several times a year class members gather after Church for lunch or at a member’s home for fun and fellowship. Visitors and new members are always welcome. The class meets from 9:45 - 10:45 am in person in the Keystone Room.
The Friendship Sunday School Class is made up of individuals who share a common desire to broaden their understanding of the scriptures and to incorporate into their lives the teachings of Christ. The Sunday morning lessons are taught by members of the class and occasionally invited guests. The study curriculum includes Bible studies, theology based study books and videos, Advent and Lenten studies, and other topics of interest. Also, the class has a strong commitment to providing help to people in need. During the year, the class enjoys social times together. The class members are eager to welcome all people into the class. The class meets from 9:45 - 10:45 am in Social Room East. They are meeting in person at this time, in addition to offering it through Zoom.
The Unity Class is made up of men & women interested in learning about the books of the Bible using the Scripture Press “Disciples’ Bible Study” series which alternates between Old and New Testament books.
The Class meetings are informal, led by Sam Olivarez with lots of ensuing discussion based on the information suggested in the quarterly student books provided and/or alternately sent via an e-newsletter (consisting of the study chapter, referenced bible verses and/or chapters, and a brief study guide) sent a few days before the Sunday’s study. “Ask Yourself” questions offer a personal way to reflect on practical applications of the Bible verses to everyday issues.
Several times a year, class members gather (Christmas or when the mood strikes) for an in-room brunch. Sometimes, contributions are made to special causes, like helping hurricane Harvey families with supplies, clothes, toys, etc. During the winter months, many Winter Texans join our class. The class meets from 9:45 - 10:30 am in person in Room 210, upstairs in the south building.
The Trinity Class is a unique, diverse, caring and fun group of class members who are committed to growing their faith in order to become better disciples of Jesus Christ. This class consists of members ranging from young couples with newborn children to seasoned members. Active and outgoing winter Texan members join them in October. Members of the Trinity Class are diverse in all categories. Members pride themselves in presenting their viewpoint often resulting in somewhat lively discussions concerning biblical issues in our current times. However, at all times the Trinity Class is a bible study class using the Adult Bible Studies curriculum. The Adult Bible Studies curriculum presents new curriculum quarterly. The class meets from 9:45 - 10:45 am in person in 211, upstairs in the south building.
