Breaking the Code


January 14- February 25

10AMLibrary/Conf. Rm


The Book of Revelation contains passages of great beauty and comfort, as well as passages that strike the casual reader as bizarre, bewildering, and sometimes frightening. How are readers today to discern God’s message in this peculiar part of the Bible?

Breaking the Code provides a trustworthy guide to the rich symbolism of this important biblical book. Noted biblical scholar Bruce M. Metzger presents the fruits of solid scholarship in a non-academic style. This revised edition includes updates based on current biblical research, as well as additional teaching from author and respected New Testament scholar David deSilva.

Join Minister of Adult Discipleship, Chris Thornsberry, as we journey together in understanding this most talked about book of the Bible.  Start your year off with a great Bible study!  Cost of book is $10.  Books can be purchase through the church or on Amazon.


Youth Scholarships 2020

Deadline April 14

 return to church office

Carmel United Methodist Church established a scholarship fund in 1987. The purpose of the fund is to assist deserving church members who are pursuing advanced education at accredited colleges or universities in the next school year. Scholarship Application Forms are available in the Church Office and the CUMC website. Completed applications must be returned to the Church Office on or before Tuesday, April 14, 2020.


The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize students for their active church involvement and their display of leadership, community, and volunteer service. Although class ranking or GPA is not the primary requirement for the award, Carmel United Methodist Church believes that working to achieve a quality education is not just a job of an educational institution, but is the primary occupation of every student.
