Connecting Points 

At Urbana UMC we value growing. We grow together in community with God. One of the ways we do this is through our Connecting Points which include a variety of bible studies, book studies, small groups and care groups. There is one to fit everyone’s schedule!


The Wesley Challenge – 21 days to a more authentic faith

4 weeks, begins Tuesday, January 25th @ 6:30pm, via zoom

Spend 4 weeks working through 21 questions that will engage your physical, spiritual and emotional lives and your relationship with God and others.  This challenge will inspire you to a new kind of commitment – one that is more authentic, vulnerable and souls shaping resulting in a renewed passion to discover deeper levels of commitment to God and others.  Week one will give you a basic foundation of who John Wesley was and why he founded the Methodist Church.

Getting to Know God’s Voice 
5 weeks, begins Wednesday, January 26th @ 6:30pm via zoom
Does God’s voice feel far away or even silent?
Are you familiar with the Trinity but unsure who the Holy Spirit is or how He works?
Join us on a 31 day interactive journey to greater intimacy with God.  It’s filled with information and practices that will help you be mentored and guided by the Holy Spirit, listen to God speak to you in various ways, overcome obstacles to hearing His voice, and align what you are hearing with the truth of God’s Word.
You may not hear a choir of angels or have a chat with a burning bush like Moses did, but you can learn to recognize and respond to God’s voice in your everyday life.  And when you do, your days will be filled with amazing new possibilities and purpose.  You were made for this!
Teacher – Terri McClain, $14 participant book. Sign up by texting VOICE to 937-563-4593, signing up on the form below or emailing Terri at
