Book Club

Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 11:30am. This group meets in members homes close to Church campus or on campus. Place is determined among members each month so be sure to check the online Calendar or the Monthly Evangel. Bring your own sack lunch to eat during the conversation.

Books are chosen by the group and cover a wide range of interests. You do not need to read all the books, instead chose the one(s) you want to read and then attend that monthly meeting. This is a great way to meet people from the church who enjoy reading and discussing what they thought of the book.

Mission Statement: To bring men to Christ and a lifelong discipleship journey.

We accomplish this mission through Bible study, discipleship groups, evangelism training, leadership development, accountability groups, mentoring, retreats, mission trips and special events.

We do the thing that God intended to help grow men in faith, other men. To be able to collectively share in their struggles, their walk, and grow in their faith. In addition, we biblically train and equip men to be spiritual leaders in their homes, in the church, and in their places of business.

The Gilbert Men’s Ministry develops men in Christian living to make an eternal impact for this generation and those to come. In today’s culture, it’s increasingly important for men to honor God with their hearts and lives.

This Women’s Bible Study has been part of the First United Methodist Church of Gilbert for a long time, come and check us out!!  We love to have new members be part of our exciting and rewarding bible study.  It is never too late to come and join our group.  This group of ladies represent all age levels and all different levels of bible knowledge, a great inter generational bible study.

We meet every Tuesday Morning at 9:00 am in room 142.  The bible study ends at 11:00 am.
