education opportunities

Hinsdale UMC normally offers adult education groups that meet on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., September through May, and weekly Bible study that meets on Wednesday afternoon. Current and future offerings will be posted throughout the year, so please check back often for updates and announcements! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person classes have been suspended. Below are listed Zoom and virtual classes. Everyone is welcome! 


There is a place for children of all ages while their parents participate in adult education classes. The Nursery is available to infants through age three, and children and youth meet for Sunday School and Confirmation Class. The Youth Room (complete with ping pong table, miniature basketball hoop, and foosball table) is open to all high school students.

Sunday, January 24 and Sunday, January 31

Bill Somers will lead the sessions on Sunday, January 24 and Sunday, January 31. Have you ever wondered what took place following the practice of slavery in the U.S.? Many of our history books in high school and college said very little. You have a chance now to hear stories of what took place, right up to the present.


Using Isabel Wilkerson two sensational books, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, Bill will share some of her well researched stories and ask for your feedback. Isabel is the first woman of African-American heritage to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in journalism. Contact Vicki Greene for the Zoom link information. 

Midweek Check-In and Devotions

Please come join us for forty good minutes of sharing Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.! Each session will include a time for conversation on previous Sunday’s sermon, as well as upcoming Sunday’s text. Were you inspired? Challenged? Intrigued? Do you have questions? Comments? Just come and share with us! All are welcome!
