Discussion Title: “#BeUMC”

The United Methodist Church has a rich history of ministry and mission that spans the world. That history continues through the countless ways The connectional United Methodist Church is made up of followers of Christ who seek to serve the last, the lost, and the least.  In this discussion, we will use readings from Scripture and our United Methodist tradition and go a little deeper, focusing on reviewing the passages in context. Come and refresh your understanding of the basics of the Methodist Faith and share your experiences and thoughts about Christianity and Methodism today. The hope is that these reflections will help us dig deeper into familiar passages and discover ideas that we may have never encountered before.

Monday Morning Bible Study

 

Monday Mornings, 10:00 – 11:30 am

September 12 – December 19

Led by Mike McKee in the Parlor (Note new location!)

What is eternal life? Why do we want it? And how do we know if we have it?  Best-selling author John Ortberg dispels the myth that eternal life is something way out in outer space that we can only hope to experience after we die – and that being saved is merely about meeting the minimal entrance requirements for getting into heaven.

Instead, could it be that the moment we trust Christ, we are initiated into “eternal living” with God as a here and now reality, one that will continue beyond our life on this earth?  Once we begin the transformative journey of truly knowing God, we can start to experience his presence, favor, and resurrection power right here on this earth – in the details, tasks, and challenges of daily, ordinary life.
