Methodism Classes -- Fall 2019

posted on August 19

Once again the Catawba Valley District is offering classes on Methodism for clergy and laity who serve in leadership positions in your church.

These courses were so popular and so well-received this past winter that we have collaborated again with Dr. Jonathan LeMaster-Smith to offer them for those who weren't able to attend.

There are three 2-day classes offered this fall:

  • United Methodist History -- September 13 (9am - 5pm) - September 14 (9 am - 3 pm)  
  • United Methodist Doctrine -- October 11 (9am - 5pm) - October 12 (9 am - 3 pm) 
  • United Methodist Polity -- November 15 (9am - 5pm) - November 16 (9 am - 3 pm)

Each class consists of 2 days of instruction, held on a Friday - Saturday. The cost for each 2-day class will be $35, which covers the cost of refreshments and lunches.  There are also books that are required, which you will need to purchase before class and bring with you. The books are available at and/or 

Classes will be held at First UMC Newton (300 N. Main Ave., Newton, NC).

** Certificates will be issued, which can then be used for CEU credit or for Catawba Valley District Advanced Lay Servant course credit.
