Classes are designed to enable personal reflection and group sharing. We seek to create a community in which participants critically reflect on the topic at hand, but also pray, share, make self-discovery, and struggle towards integrating their learning into building prayerful lives of service, mercy, and advocacy.

In this Lenten “season of recovery” for our physical, communal, mental, intellectual, and environmental health, our Sunday worship experiences will explore the healing narratives of Jesus that tell of divine solidarity with human suffering. We are reminded that we can begin a journey toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken. 


During the six week Lenten season, we also are offering a number of small group experiences for you to enter into as part of your personal Lenten discipline. Please consider attending one or more of the following spiritual formation opportunities.

Park Slope United Methodist Church welcomes children preK-8th Grade for an intergenerational engaging Sunday school experience. Families do not need to be church members to participate in this free ministry (so we encourage you to invite a friend!). The Fall program will focus on the Beatitudes, Jesus' sermon about building up communities of love and justice. Sessions are multi-sensory and led by gifted, trained, and background checked teachers. 


We are not currently holding in-person worship.  Nursery Care is suspended at this time.

Nursery care is available during worship for all children newborn to 3 years of age. Childcare is provided by two paid caregivers with occasional parent volunteers. The Nursery opens fifteen minutes prior to the beginning of worship for drop-off. Parents are also welcome to bring their children to the nursery at any time during the service. Parents are asked to pick up children immediately after the service.
