Below are some opportunities to enhance your spiritual life:
Tuesdays, 10:30 am & 6:30 pm, Library
N.T Wright’s “ACTS: 24 Studies for Individuals and Groups.” We call Acts “The Acts of the Apostles,” but we should think of it as “The Acts of Jesus: Part Two.” These studies help us to do so, and to see how Jesus’ acts through the apostles inform and empower our acts today. Thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide you more deeply into God’s Word.
The study of ACTS will resume on Tuesday September 10th and meets in the Church Library at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm.
Wednesdays, 12:00 pm noon, Prayer Group
With all the growth and activity in our church and having learned about developing a life of prayer, our church has embarked on a journey in praying together. Pastor Rebecca leads a prayer meeting in the Chapel every Wednesday at noon. Scripture and a prayer outline are provided for us to pray together for our church, its people, and other concerns brought to us. This meeting generally lasts between 30-40 minutes, and you can add people/situations/prayers of your own. There is a deep sense of “joy” in coming together with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, praying to God for our church and one another.
Fourth Wednesday of the month, 5:30 pm
This service group meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Village at Cataument, a shelter for homeless families. Members of the church come up with a menu, cook and serve supper to 20-30 people at 5:45 pm at the shelter. Contact Henry Brown at 508-540-0753 for more information.
NEW: Last Friday of the month, Mother’s Group, 6:00 pm
We are so excited to offer a Monthly, Mother’s Group starting May 31st at John Wesley! It is our hope that this environment will be a safe place where mothers can build relationships, have a positive support system and share the joys and struggles of Motherhood. We hope this will be a time for mothers to relax, breathe, and learn how to be a loving mother through creative activities, faith-based discussions, guest speakers, etc. We will meet monthly and the first gathering will be Friday, May 31st from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Parent Room. Child Care will be available across the hall in the Nursery. Moms of all ages and stages are welcome.
