Coming September 13!

disciples-path

 

New Church-Wide Study and Sermon Series Beginning September 13th:

This program guides individuals to take the next step in discipleship and become dynamic, engaged followers of Jesus Christ.The study combines a Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God’s love and grace with the time-tested practices of spiritual discipline expressed in the membership vows to uphold the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

Participants will develop spiritual practices, discover their unique gifts, and become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in their own lives, the lives of others, and the world.

If you are not a part of a small group and would like to be, please add your name and email on the Connection Card in the bulletin.

Women’s Tuesday Morning Bible Study

Adam Hamilton, The Journey

The Women’s Tuesday Morning Bible Study/Small Group at 9:30 am in room 218.

We are using Adam Hamilton’s book The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem to enrich our look at the birth of Jesus Christ. Using historical information, archaeological data, and a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth, the most amazing moment in history will become more real and heart-felt as you walk along this road.

We will meet each Tuesday through December 18th.

Please join us!
