Methodist Identity: Our Story - This is the first course in a two-part series on Methodism. The fall term will include the Wesleyan revival in England and the growth of Methodism in the United States and around the world. We will also talk about the rise of Methodism in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. The course will include vignettes from leading Methodist scholars. This course is designed for the new Methodist as well as the lifetime Methodist. This 12-week study will give us the history to understand how we became the church we are today. The spring term will piggyback onto this study and address the beliefs of the United Methodist Church. Pastor Doug, facilitator in room G11
Messy People: Life lessons from imperfect Biblical heroes. A study for our Young Women’s Group, God can turn your messy life into a masterpiece! - Every life gets messy at times. Whether it’s a messy house or a messy situation, God can restore and use you. In this study of some messy biblical people, you will learn that God uses broken people, restores broken hearts, and helps us deal with the hard moments of life. Each session focuses on a different character. Kate Esely, facilitator in room 104
David: Seeking a Heart Like His- by Beth Moore guides us through this compelling study of David. We will explore how David’s life proves that God will never give up on us. In this examination of the man after God’s own heart, David will delight and disappoint you. You’ll want to be just like him at times and nothing like him at others. If you’ve ever experienced doubts, temptations, losses, family problems, or personal inconsistencies, this is the study for you!” We will use the new video sessions and the updated member book. Come join us! Sue Abarr, facilitator in room 112

LIFT– Life in Fragile Times will be confidential conversations, support and information for life in fragile times. We will share, support, and encourage each other as we deal with life. Alan Southards and Ginger Gardner, facilitators in room 114.
