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.

During this pandemic, we have not been able to hold our regular Sunday School classes, bible studies, small group gatherings, or Wednesday evening meal and classes. Some of our groups are now meeting regularly online via Zoom video calls. We also have launched a new streaming Bible study service through Amplify Media, which you may read about here. Please watch this space for more information about studies and classes as they are made available. In the meantime, we invite you to participate in the following:


R.E.A.L. Women's Bible Study

Social Justice Book Study Group

The Benson Memorial Social Justice Book Study will begin a new discussion on Wednesday, April 21, of The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet by Michael Mann.
