LIFE Groups (Living in Faith Everyday)

Are you looking for the best way to get connected with others at UBC?  Well, we have good news – the spring cycle of our LIFE Groups (“Living in Faith Everyday” Groups) will be starting soon!  LIFE Groups are weekly sermon-based small groups that can meet any time during the week either in homes, at church, or at any other location that is convenient for a particular group.  The purpose of the groups is to provide a comfortable environment, where we can spend time in fellowship with a group of friends, studying God’s Word, and talking about how Christ has been at work in our lives.

Each Sunday during this five-week spring cycle, April 30th – May 28th, church members will be given study guides on Sunday mornings that will be based on that Sunday’s sermon, so that LIFE Group participants can then study and discuss in much more depth the topic that has been introduced with the sermon. 

We’ll have different groups meeting on different days, at different times, all over the Baltimore area, so there will surely be a group just waiting for you! 

If you have questions, please contact Rev. Harrington at tom@ubcbaltimore.org or Rev. Katie Callaway at katie@ubcbaltimore.org.

Sunday Bible Studies for Adults

Thinking about getting more involved in Bible Study?  There are plenty of opportunities to study, pray, and fellowship with others. All Sunday Bible Studies meet at 9:30 a.m.  

Adult 1: This group is an intergenerational class that is engaged in an unending study of every book, chapter, and verse in the Bible.  The class is lecture style in format, but the strength of the class is the dialogue regarding what the texts say, what the texts mean and how the texts can be applied to life.  The class is studying the Nehemiah and Esther and meets in the Parlor by the Davis Chapel. This study is led by Bryan Beverly.

Adult 2: This group will meet to discuss the book of James.  We will be using NT Wright’s For Everyone Bible Study Guides as the basis of our discussions which will take place in the class room off of the Joy McCormick Center.  This study is led by Georgia Smith.

Adult 3: This group will follow the Revised Common Lectionary texts and discuss how they relate to global current events. This study will take place in the Lloyd Conference Room and is led by Isaac and Ruth-Anne Mwase.

Wednesday Night Bible Study

We also have an adult devotional and prayer time from September-May on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the McCormick Center downstairs.  The new study will begin on January 11th.

Come join us as Rev. Harrington walks us through the a study on the book of Revelation.  With its apocalyptic genre, this book contains many strange symbols and images.  However, it is also one of the most hopeful books of the Bible, describing how God will always care for His people, even during the most traumatic of times.  If your schedule permits, please join us for our Wednesday night meals which offer a wonderful time of fellowship together.  The meals take place right before this study at 6:00 p.m. in Heaver Hall.
