education opportunities

Hinsdale UMC normally offers adult education groups that meet on Sundays and weekly Bible study that meets on Wednesday afternoon.


From September through May, HUMC offers Adult Sunday School after the worship service at 11 am. Topics range from liturgical themes and important characters in the Bible to topics of social relevance. See below for the new Fall Adult Study.

Lenten Study for Adults


Jesus came to lift up the lowly. Throughout his ministry to his final days on the road to the cross, we find stories of his relationships with ordinary, flawed, and unexpected people. He met, dined, and traveled with people who were not perfect. Many of them were struggling, some were outsiders or even outlaws. Whoever they were, from those he healed to the outlaws with him at his crucifixion, Jesus brought the good news of God’s kingdom to those who most needed to hear it.

Join us in the Conference Room at 11am for our adult Lenten study of Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws. Pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke’s stories we find Jesus’ care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus’ concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today.

The book is available for $19.99 hardback / $9.99 Kindle through Amazon, or $11.49 through Cokesbury.
