Sunday School Classes

Deepen your faith in between worship services by attending one of our 4 Adult Sunday School classes.

Tran-Seeker Adult Class
The TranSeeker Adult Sunday School class provides an opportunity for study, including books of the Bible, study books by various authors, and Biblical video series, depending on the desires of the members of the class, led by Jim Holmes. All ages are welcome!

Tri-M Adult Class
Tri-M represents Mr., Mrs. and Miss – no adult too young or too old.  The class is primarily a Bible Study, though they also serve as a prayer group for their members concerns. 

Living the Questions
Want to explore the difficult questions of our faith?  Join the “Living the Questions” class to examine the character of our God, the content of our faith, the purpose of our prayer, and the function of our church. No homework commitment, just enjoy the fascinating, thoughtful discussions! 

Bible-based study for men and women, geared towards Generation X and the post-Baby Boomer crowd.  We encounter Scripture, intent to meet a relevant and personal God, desiring to learn, and expecting to be changed.  This study happens in the context of caring fellowship, friendship, fun and support, with no individual expectations of a certain level of biblical scholarship to participate, but with an attitude of openness for discussion and desire to apply a living faith in a meaningful way.  Come prepared to explore the full spectrum of emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of your personal faith, standing firmly in the light of Scripture and the person of Jesus Christ.

Bible Studies

At Monticello UMC we believe in growing as Christians by studying the Word of God.  We offer a number of opportunities for Bible Study.

 Wednesday Women’s Bible Study – All women are welcome.  We usually do in depth studies which require daily readings.  We also have 30 min. of prayer time included. We meet all year, including summer.

Short Term Studies – We realize you have a busy, ever-changing schedule, and often cannot commit to a group that meets every week.  So, we like to offer short-term, periodic studies that focus on a specific book of the Bible, or a popular modern book.

Check our calendar or view our newsletter to receive dates for these studies.

United Methodist Women

The UMW is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ;to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.  The UMW meet every second Thursday of the month at 2:00 p.m.



Get involved with helping others locally in the community through volunteer opportunities:

Midwest Distribution Center- Travel to Springfield for the day to assist in various projects. This group goes on the third Tuesday of each month and leaves at 8:00 am from the church parking lot. If you wish to go just call the church office ahead of time so they have an idea of the number of cars they will need and bring a sack lunch for the day.
