Gary United Methodist Church in Wheaton will offer "Launch: A Class on Spiritual Habits for Parents and Young Adults," starting Sunday, Oct. 9.

Whether you've been attending church since you were a kid or you're brand new, you probably have some ideas already about what it takes to grow spiritually. The problem is, we all struggle sometimes to figure out how to continue growing -- and how to do it in a way that works for us now. If we're not careful, we can end up with a relationship with God that worked when we were kids or new to our faith but is no longer transforming or challenging us like it could be.

 

On one Sunday a month, participants will see how they can "launch" (or relaunch) their spiritual growth by evaluating (or re-evaluating) these spiritual habits of spending time with God, spending time with others in healthy community, using their gifts to serve and sharing stories of faith. It will be at 10 a.m. Oct. 9, Nov. 13, Jan. 15 and Feb. 12.

Gary United Methodist Church, 224 N. Main Street, Wheaton, offers 9 and 11 a.m. Sunday worship services in the sanctuary. The 9 a.m. service is complete with Kids' Church and nursery care, plus livestreaming and recorded worship at garychurch.org. The 11 a.m. Service of Word & Sacrament is an intimate and informal service. At 10 a.m., you can enjoy a coffee hour called "Special Blend" and Sunday school for all ages.

With deep roots in the community since 1853, Gary Church has vibrant music, kids, youth and adult ministries, plus opportunities for local, national and global missions. For more information, go to garychurch.org or contact the church office at office@garychurch.org.
