Spiritual formation (grow)

We are called to GROW in our knowledge and love of God, becoming alive to the presence of Christ in our midst so that we may become faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples (Deuteronomy 6; Matthew 22.37). Click on the links to learn more about the different ways you can grow with the Benson Memorial UMC family. All Sunday School classes meet at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings.


Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom


Join us every Wednesday night as we ask the question, Why?

Why was Jesus baptized?

Why does God give choice?

Why does God rescue his people? (Over and over again? What’s the point?)

Why did God’s people practice animal sacrifice?

Why does God give his people so many rules?

And so many more!

UMYF (Youth Group) begins again on Sunday, September 19, at

4:00 p.m.


Join us on Zoom as we begin a study on spiritual beings in the Bible. We’ll talk about things like angels, cherubim, Satan, demons, and the Divine Council. We’ll watch a short video, have a discussion, and then play one of Bob’s entertaining games!


All middle schoolers and high schoolers are welcome! Invite your friends! Contact Cortney Babajtis for the Zoom link and schedule.


Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. on Zoom


With the UMC General Conference approaching next year, having been postponed from 2020, and discomfort lingering from national and world events of late, tensions may be running high and divides more pronounced. In an effort to promote unity and understanding, Benson Memorial UMC is sponsoring a Love Our Neighbors Discussion Group. Books we will be discussing are How the Body of Christ Talks, by C. Christopher Smith; The Peacemaking Church: 8 Biblical Keys to Resolve Conflict and Preserve Unity, by Curtis Hefflefinger; Church/School/Community: Forging Partnerships to Change the World, by Lia M. McIntosh; and I’m Black. I’m Christian. I’m Methodist., by Lillian C. Smith, Erin Beasley. We will begin on Zoom but will meet in person when all are comfortable with that option.


This group is open, welcoming, and encouraging to all—no matter their point of view. Please join us as we journey ahead together.
