In addition to Sunday school, there are a number of other opportunities for Christian education for adults. These include:
Various Adult Studies – held on Sunday evenings during the school year, led by the pastor or by members of the congregation.
Young at Heart (Senior Citizens)
Young at Heart meets the second Wednesday of every month in the Social Hall at 11:45 a.m. for a covered dish luncheon followed by a program with subjects geared toward senior citizens or varied types of entertainment. Meetings are normally adjourned by 1:00 p.m. There are also occasional one day trips to the mountains, museums, outlet malls, etc.
United Methodist Women
Memorial United Methodist Women are a community of women whose purpose is to know God better. We develop a creative, supportive fellowship through three circles which meet once a month.
Afternoon Circle: Second Monday – 2:30 p.m.
Lydia Fellowship Circle: Second Tuesday – 10:30 a.m.
Magnolia Circle: Third Thursday – 6:30 p.m.
Four times a year our circles combine for joint meetings and missions fundraisers. A Call to Prayer and Self-Denial is held in the winter, a luncheon takes place in the spring, a covered dish meeting is held in the fall, and a Christmas Coffee is held in December at which our officers are installed.
Our United Methodist Women support four Methodist Homes in South Carolina as well as local missions. Our circles take care of shut-ins by sending cards, visiting, and providing gifts on various occasions. We are part of a global ministry of one million women who commit close to $20 million to missions each year.
Members of the circles and the other women of the church prepare meals for the bereaved.
Family Ministries offers opportunities for fellowship and Intentional Faith Development. Offerings vary from year to year but typically include:
Supper at Six on the second Wednesday of every month from September through May
Church Cookout in summer
Ice Cream Social in late summer
