Studies

Close to Home: Our Church Wide Advent Theme

“When something hits close to home, it affects us deeply.”  This study explores the stories and scriptures of Advent that “affect us deeply”.  Close to Home acknowledges that Emmanuel is with us, and yet, God’s promised day – our everlasting home – is not fully realized.  We long for God to come close!

The pastors will lead this study on Sundays from 11 a.m.-noon and on Wednesdays from 6:30–8 p.m. The Sunday session meets November 28-December 19, while the Wednesday session meets December 1-22, both sessions in room 13.

The material used will be the Close to Home devotional, available for no charge in the church lobby.

You can also join the Growth Through Christ Sunday school class in room 13 at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings to take this study.

The Heart That Grew Three Sizes: Finding Faith in the story of The Grinch

In this study the author explores the faith themes in this Christmas classic:  How did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning?  How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that change our lives?

Sara Campbell leads this study on Sundays from 9:30-10:30 a.m., joining the Agape Sunday school class in room 1, November 28-December 19, and on Wednesdays from 6–7:30 p.m. in room 4, December 1-22.

Cost of the book is $13.

You can also join the T-Bils Sunday school class in room 3 at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings to take this study.

Embracing the Bible

Embracing the Bible is a new approach to Bible study. This ongoing weekly class is different because it follows the Revised Common Lectionary, which means the focus is different each week. As a result, you can miss a session here and there or join a group at a later date, without being lost in the conversation.

There will be a team of leaders that will facilitate three different times, starting August 29: Sundays from 4-5:30 p.m., Wednesdays from 6:30– 8 p.m., and Thursdays from 1-2:30 p.m. The Wednesday session meets through November 24, and the Sunday and Thursday sessions are meeting through the week of February 20, 2020.

Guest and New Member Orientation

The Guest and New Member Orientation occurs on the first Wednesday of the month @ 6:30 p.m. Hear the Aldersgate story and take a tour of the church building. No registration is required. Find out more.
