Adult Ministries

Adult Sunday School

We enter new life in Christ just as we are, saved by grace, and by the very presence of the living God now dwelling within us, we begin to change into his image. While only God causes the growth, we are called to work with the Spirit in this lifelong process of transformation. In the
fall Sunday Bible Study we will explore the Spirit’s transformation work and our discipleship. Using Ephesians 4-5, we will gently and courageously look at our “old self” compared to our “new self” in light of our ultimate goal of walking and talking like Jesus. Each week we will look at the spectrum of a negative vs positive habit and a Biblical character revealing it. Come open to the ongoing work of the Spirit who is transforming us into Jesus’ image with ever-increasing glory!

Thursday Fellowship

All are warmly invited to a weekly fellowship around good food and the Good Book! We gather each Thursday evening to enjoy a potluck, followed by a Bible study. Feel free to enjoy one or both parts of the evening fellowship. While there is a suggestion of potluck choices between a main dish, a side dish or a dessert mentioned in the weekly e-newsletter, it is simply that, a suggestion! Come and join others in the Midway Family!

Bible Study Details: We are currently on an inspirational journey through the Psalms, reflecting on these beautiful songs of praise, thanksgiving, and lament. Participants are invited to rediscover, or see for the first time, why you can put your hope in Jesus, the Shepherd, Savior and King! If you have any questions, you may email Gerald MacDicken @
