SMALL GROUP STUDIES
2018 Lenten Study
Join our Children, Youth and fellow Adults in our Church-Wide Lent Study! “Creed: What Christians Believe and Why” by Adam Hamilton, starting February 15th. You may have recited the Apostles’ Creed dozens of times in your life, but does this early statement of foundational Christian beliefs really have anything to do with the big issues of modern life? Yes! Far better than the results of a Google search, the Creed explains the basic beliefs of Christianity and answers some of the most pressing questions that Christians have asked for almost two millennia. You’re invited to spend the six weeks of Lent confronting and examining your own core beliefs through this study. Several groups will be meeting, so on any given week you’re welcome to attend whichever meeting time fits your schedule. Large print and regular print books are $13 – exact cash or check payable to “JWUMC” – from Jenn on Sundays or from the church office.
Sunday, 9:30 am: in the Library (Brian & Jenn Linton)
Tuesday, 10:30 am: in the Library (Betty Smith)
Tuesday, 6:30 pm: in the Fitzgerald Room (Jenn Linton)
Thursday, 11:00 am: in the Library (Pastor Rebecca)
Below are some opportunities to further your spiritual life:
Wednesdays, 12:00 pm noon (except the first Wednesday)
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 (except the first Wednesday which is always Food for the Soul). 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.
Third Wednesday of the month, 7:00 pm
This study and service group meets the third Wednesday of every month at a members home for prayer, bible study, sharing their journey’s and intercession. On the fourth Wednesday of the month, they cook and serve supper at 5:30 pm for the Village at Cataumet, a shelter for homeless families. Contact Bob McIntire at 508-548-8134 for more information.
