Adult Christian Education is an integral part of the Strawbridge experience. We offer classes for all ages, with a variety of meeting times throughout the week. Various classes pursue Bible study, study books by popular authors, cover topics on social concerns, or discuss family life issues.

Men of strawbridge

Our newly-formed Men of Strawbridge ministry provides an opportunity for the men of Strawbridge UMC to get to know each other better while building relationships to grow deeper in their faith and fully experience the power of Christ. This is a group for all men at any stage of life.

They will meet once a month for a meal and/or to participate in a mission opportunity. They will also have events throughout the year with their families.

Their next get-together will be on the evening of Wednesday, July 10 with a B.Y.O.D. (Bring Your Own Dinner) beginning at 5:30 pm. After dinner, they plan on getting a little dirty and a lot sweaty cleaning out the planter boxes by pulling weeds and tilling the soil. Hard-working kiddos are welcome to join in!

Please contact Adam Pieknik for additional information.
