The Bible teaches that followers of Christ experience spiritual growth in the context of community. God did not make us to learn in isolation; we need each other if we are to become spiritually mature. In Growth Groups we are able to take the next step in growing deeper relationships with God and others. Join a Growth Group so that you can discover for yourself what it means to be Learning in Community. Sign up in the Narthex, or on a Connection Card.

A Year with The Bible
Daily study of The Bible using the NSRV Daily Study Bible. Starting with Genesis and moving straight through to Revelation. Each Sunday, the sermon will be drawn from that week’s readings. If you don’t wish to join a class discussion you can still read along at home.
Here is the schedule for the
year. Cost of Bible $10.00 through the church office. Also available on Kindle.
Leader: Rev. Steve Plunkett
Time: 11:30AM Sundays or 11:00AM Thursdays
For those who cannot attend classes, but would like to participate in online discussion, we have created a Facebook group – “Deep Divers: Daily Bible Explorations”.
We may imagine longingly what it would have been like to live in “Bible times” when people heard God’s voice as clearly as that of a person in the next room. But in reality, even a hero of the faith like Samuel—the leader who anointed Israel’s first two kings—did not always recognize God’s Spirit calling to him. Like us, he struggled to discern God’s purposes and will for his life. Listening closely to his story can help us understand how to stay engaged with God in our own spiritual journey.

24 HOURS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
Walk with Jesus on his final day. Sit beside him at the Last Supper. Pray with him in Gethsemane. Follow Him to the Cross. Experience the Resurrection.
24 Hours that Changed the World guides us step-by-step through the heartbreaking, inspiring journey from the Last Supper to the Cross to the Empty Tomb. Filmed on location in the Holy Land (and based on a book by best-selling author and Methodist Pastor Adam Hamilton), this gripping, video study allows you to experience and understand Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection in a way you never have before. Steve Davis will facilitate this 7-week study beginning Sunday, March 5 at 8:45 am in the Hospitality Room. All are invited! Please sign-up in the Narthex or by calling the church office.
