Bible Study

“Our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee” wrote St. Augustine.

These words remind us of our need to connect with God and to enter into healthy relationships with others.  Education is very important at PAUMC because it is through education that we grow spiritually and mature as Christians.   To that end, we offer a variety of classes and special events for your spiritual development.
