Miscellaneous Questions

What adult Sunday school or small group online curriculum resources can you suggest?


Per Discipleship Ministries: “The United Methodist Church has a process for approving curriculum for use with Sunday school classes and small groups. Material is identified for each age level. That material is recommended by the Curriculum Resources Committee and approved by the board members of the Discipleship Ministries.

Visit Cokesbury for curriculum to use with children, youth or adults that has been approved for use in United Methodist churches. You may follow the link or go to Curriculum > UMC Endorsed via Cokesbury’s navigation bar. On each page where a resource is described, there will appear a line indicating it is “UMC Endorsed.’”
