OUMC's Adult Sunday School is an interdenominational group which seeks to build community and find spiritual nourishment in the contemplative practice of Lectio Divina. Afterward members may have coffee, stay for worship, or attend their own church.

7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.8 To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of powerful deeds, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses."
