Adult Education opportunities

Welcome to Adult Education and Discipleship at Clarkesville First UMC! We do our best to offer some sort of class or group study at all times throughout the year, often hosting more than one at a time.


Currently, masks are required for any gatherings on the church campus, so please be prepared when you arrive.

Wednesday Night Study

On Dec. 2nd and 9th, Toby Grady will lead an adult class at 6:30pm in Legacy Hall entitled, "Advent Reflections." 


This will be a time to examine the Advent Season, reflect, and be encouraged & inspired in these weeks leading up to Christmas.  


No advance sign-up is needed.

Grief Share

GriefShare Support & Fellowship meets every Wednesday evening at 6:30pm in Legacy Hall. You may join in at any time!  If you have experienced the death of a loved one, this group offers supportive fellowship with guidance to help you through the grief journey.  Each session stands alone and you may attend at any time. It is offered several times a year and open to the community as well.

If you are interested in attending, please sign-up in advance to reserve a book and a seat. 


You may join at any time throughout the study if you would like!
