Adult Ministries

Adult Ministries addresses the needs of adults and explores opportunities for growing as Christian disciples. We help our congregation and community meet their Godly potential through individual growth and fellowship. Methodist Temple's Adult Council helps plan and coordinate any type of adult education within the church. 

Sunday School

All adult Sunday School classes meet during Sunday School hour from 9:45-10:45 a.m. in the second floor Adult Learning Center. Classrooms are accessible by elevator, which is located in the southeast corner of the building, across from the Fellowship Hall. All classes welcome new members of any age and life experience. We encourage you to visit several classes in order to find the best group to fit your needs. 

Open Circle (Room 202) - This class consists of members ages 35 to 90 years old. They focus on Bible study and faith-based topical studies, often watching a short segment on DVD followed by discussion. Members are committed to intercessory prayer and communicate prayer needs through a weekly newsletter. For more information about Open Circle, contact Jerry Close.

Sojourn (Room 204) - Young families, singles, and couples attend this class and enjoy free, open-minded discussion on book studies and issues that encourage members to put their faith into action. They enjoy gathering for fellowship and family activities. Contact Pastor Andy Payton for more information about Sojourn.

Seekers (Room 205) - Middle-aged and older meet during this class to study the Bible & faith- based studies with plenty of opportunity for discussion.  Contact Bob Hall for information about Seekers. 

Perspectives (Room 207) - This group of 40-70 year olds study books of the Bible and timely topics. Jack Deppe leads this class. 

Kononia (Room 206) - This class of middle-aged adults & retirees focuses on Bible Study & discussion. Linda Hay is the instructor of this class.

Open Community 

Open Community is free and available for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and our world, and share some good food. Once a month, beginning in August 2018, Methodist Temple will offer Open Community 2.0. Each Open Community night begins with a casual meal for all ages. Then a speaker, or panel of speakers, will discuss a topic from one of three categories: Current Events, Faith Questions, or Family Living.
The goal of Open Community 2.0 is not to change everyone's mind or convert people to one way of believing. Instead, we strive to create a safe space in the Evansville community to learn, laugh, and connect. Childcare is available to ensure that anyone can participate, though children are also more than welcome to join us for the discussion.


Retreats take place throughout the year for men, women, couples and young adults. See our events calendar for upcoming retreats.
