Adult Bible Studies

bible studies and small groups

A variety of Bible studies and book studies are offered for adults throughout the year to help participants increase in knowledge of the scriptures and spiritual practices and grow in their relationship with God. All are invited to participate in the ministries and studies of FUMC McAllen. Childcare is provided during all church programs and events. For more information regarding Bible and book studies, call the church office at 956-686-3784.

Many Christians struggle with some of the most foundational practices of Christianity. Everything from prayer and worship, to reading the scriptures and stewardship, can be obstacles for countless Christians, even if they have been active Christians for years or decades.

At First UMC McAllen, our goal is to help our community Love God, Share Jesus, and Grow Faith, and BASIC provides a way to do just that. BASIC, a study we have been using for a couple of years, and written by our Associate Pastor, Robert Perales, helps Christians better understand and learn to actively engage in these Christian practices. If you have any interest in learning more, we hope you will join us! For any questions, please contact Pastor Robert at .



Dr. Kevin Watson has written a fresh new guide to the theory and practice of the Wesley class meeting, an essential element of truly Wesleyan spirituality. This book is for clergy and congregations who are looking for ways to develop deeper discipleship.


The Young Adult group meets every Thursday evening, beginning September 6, at the home of Pastor Robert and Tanya Perales, 401 West Vine, McAllen.


Every Tuesday at 12:00 noon, resuming on January 15, women are invited to gather in Room 202 for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Cynthia Murray leads this group as they share and encourage each other in their daily walk with Christ. Bring your lunch and enjoy this time with friends.


All men are invited to gather for Bible study and fellowship led by Roland Pecina. The group will uses the S.O.A.P. method of studying scripture, focusing in January 2019 on Francis Chan's Gospel of Mark.
S. - Scripture – What does the scripture say? Which verse is
meaningful for you?
O. - Observation – What is interesting about this passage? What
did you learn?
A. - Application - How does this apply to your life? How will you
let it change you?
P. - Prayer - Talk to God about what He's teaching you. Ask Him
how He wants you to change. Present your requests to God.


All are invited to gather every Monday evening in January to connect to God’s Word through different Bible journaling techniques. One technique will be the focus each Monday. No prior knowledge or artistic talent is required! Bring your Bible and any art supplies you would like to use. There will be plenty of supplies available to share. Bring a friend!
