Interested in Sinning
Bring your lunch and join your friends in the Parlor on Mondays, noon to 1:00, beginning June 1st, for our summer book study, Sinning Like a Christian: A New Look at the 7 Deadly Sins, by UM Bishop William Willimon. Willimon writes "While sin is not the defining aspect of a human being, nor is it the chief concern of our life with God, our life with God enables us openly to confess our sin and to begin again, to get up, to go on, to resume our journey with God." This study will be led by Jeannie Jensen. Please let the office know if you are interested so we can purchase enough books to be available for the class.
VBS Adult Study
Save the Date
We will be offering a book study during VBS for adults led by Ken Roemer. Join us July 12-15 from 6-8pm for Greater by Steven Furtick. Most of us aren't in danger of ruining our lives. We're in danger of wasting them. Are you unsatisfied with the kind of Christian life you've settled for? If you are tired of cul-de-sac Christianity or self-help pseudo solutions, today is the day God's greater plan for your life begins in full force.
Greater than the labels you were given
when you were young.
Greater than the cynicism that settles
in as you get older.
Greater than the dreams you've
dreamed for yourself.
Greater than even the greatest moment
you've had thus far.
In Greater, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to give you the confidence to know that nothing is impossible with God, the clarity to see the next step He's calling you to take, and the courage to do anything He tells you to do.

United Methodist Women will be hosting a six-week study on "learning how to speak the truth in love". We will read KEEP IT SHUT by Karen Ehman. Books will be available after June 10th in the office for the first ten enrollees. Books may also be purchased on-line.
