Adult Ministries


As “life-long learners”, we all need to continue to stretch our wisdom and challenge our thinking.  We hope that you will find something interesting to pursue.  If you have suggestions for future classes, please talk to either pastor. 


Sundays at 9:00 a.m.,

“Numbers in the Bible”  Daryl Spors, Facilitator.

Room 106.
This is an insightful presentation about the accuracy of scriptural numerics and the perfection of the Son of God in numerical ways. The reader will find profit as well as inspiration from this intriguing study.

Sundays at 10:30a.m.

“St. Augustine’s Confessions” Don Dyke, Facilitator.

Room 106.

In a succession of stories that are as powerful as any in world literature, Augustine seeks to understand the same issues in his life that many people try to understand in theirs, arriving at profound conclusions that offer stunning insight into our psychology and morality and challenge us to become wiser and better people. Even though the Confessions is more than 1,500 years old, it still speaks to us and has the capacity to change our lives.

Mondays, 9:30—11:00am

“The Shack” Linda Whitelock, Facilitator


A grieving father receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him to meet in the Oregon wilderness where his daughter has been abducted and murdered. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, “The Shack” wrestles with the timeless question, “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?”

Senior Ministries

Senior Ministries at Cargill UMC provide opportunities for seniors to gather in supportive and social settings.  Retired Pastor Stu Allen is on staff to attend to seniors’ needs, although many activities are suggested and organized by senior program attendees.

Senior Meals provides a delicious, well-balanced meal for those 50 and above in Janesville.  It’s also a valued time for socializing and supporting one another.  Meals are provided on the first and third Thursdays of each month at noon.  Reservations are required to ensure that we plan and prepare adequately—please call the church office (608-752-0548).

Small Group Studies

Many members participate in small group studies that are not a part of the structured class offerings.  Our pastors would be happy to connect you with a group or study material if you’d like to start a group of your own.  The opportunities are endless.
