Classes at St. Matthew's

John Wesley, the father of Methodism, was an Anglican priest in the 1700’s.  He and his brother Charles Wesley joined a group of students from Oxford University to form a Holy Club.  This group met for the purpose of study and the pursuit of a devout Christian life.  His Holy Club would later develop into a larger group of Christians gathering together called Societies with many small groups that were named Classes.  These Classes would be led by a leader from within the Society and consist of about 10 - 12 people.  These groups met to hold each other accountable, study scripture, and grow into a life of holiness. Many churches today have developed small groups for their congregation.  Here at St. Matthew’s UMC we have many “Adult Classes” you can join.  For more information reach out to Brian Johnston, Associate Pastor at
