Sunday Mornings at Wesley umc

Pastor Tom is going to take the next few weeks to do a little “Methodist 101” and take a look at what makes us Methodist.

The Methodist Five:
Sunday, February 3 - Five things the Methodist Church asks of the Congregation: Prayers, Presence, Gifts, Service, Witness. Matthew 7:7-11
Sunday, February 10 - Four Sources of Authority: Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience. Matthew 13:1-9
Sunday, February 17 - Three Stages of Grace: Prevenient, Justifying, and Sanctifying. 2nd Peter 3:14-18
Sunday, February 24 - Two Kinds of Holiness: Personal and Social Holiness. John 8:2-11
Sunday, March 3 - One Mission: to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Matthew 28:16-20

So what does that have to do with "Un-tied"? Come find out.

The Soul Survivors class meets in room 117.  They use the “Faithweaver Now” study guide which has an emphasis on families and our faith.

The “Piece Makers” – these ladies like to quilt while they study the Bible.  Quilting skills not necessary.  They will teach anyone!  They meet in room 115.

The OPUS class meets in room 116.  Leaders take turns facilitating Bible studies corresponding with Pastor Tom’s Sunday morning Sermon Series and other topics of interest.  This group has been described as “rowdy” and “lively”.  No matter what the term, they are always a good time.

The Family Development class meets in room 119.  This class focuses on marriage, the parenting challenges of pre-school/grade school children, and anything else that comes up.
