Current Sunday School Study -  FATHOM

Fathom is a Bible study for teens whose lessons are a blend of narrative and traditional theological approaches to understanding the Bible story. Each lesson will focus on one passage that will launch into the larger context of God's story being studied,and how that story is meant to be theirs. Fathom creates space and tension for teens to wrestle with how to interpret, ask questions, and experience the Bible.

ARMY (United in Mission: Action Reach-Out Ministry by Youth) began in 1979 with a youth mission trip to Athens, Texas, where youth groups from several Houston churches gathered to provide home repair assistance to people in need.

Our mission is accomplished every summer when thousands of youth and adult volunteers sacrifice a week of their vacation to join God’s ARMY. Using a local Methodist church as a base where they gather to have their meals, sleep in classrooms, and worship in the Sanctuary. Participants spend each day of the week providing free home repairs for low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners in the surrounding area.
