Upcoming Worship Service
Previous Worship Service
Lent is a time for reflecting on your faith and your life! What better time than Lent for taking a Bible study that will begin right after Ash Wednesday for six weeks. This is a great opportunity for learning, reflecting and getting to know others. We are offering two Bible study options and potentially a third if there is enough interest. We will be using Adam Hamilton’s book, The Walk. It focuses on five practices for a Christian life - Worship and Prayer, Listening, Serving, Giving, Sharing. Each session will include a video by Adam Hamilton, renowned speaker, author and pastor of the UM Church of the Resurrection.
Online Class - Meeting on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:30 pm. We will help you learn how to use Zoom if you are a first-timer. Great for our friends who are still up north or those just not ready to attend in-person activities yet. Facilitated by Vanessa Fletcher and Thelma Johnson.
In-Person Thursday Morning Class: Meeting on Thursday mornings in Barton Hall at 10:30 am (socially distanced with masks on) facilitated by Vanessa Fletcher. Starting February 25th. Room for 4 more participants.
In-Person Wednesday Morning Class (FULL!) - Meeting on Wednesday mornings in Barton Hall, 10:30-11:30 am (socially distanced with masks on) facilitated by Wendy McKee.
