Sundays @ 10:30am
The Reflections Connection Group class meets weekly in Room 28 and is led by Barbara Beck.
The Reflections Connection Group recieved its name from 2 Corinthians 3:18: "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." The more we read and study God's Word, the more we begin to reflect its teachings in our own lives!
This class is Bible-study focused, often studying through whole books of the Bible.
Starting Sunday, Dec. 8
10:30am in Room 7
Leaders: Alan & Elaine Schoonveld
Through Christmas, we are reminded that even when it seems God is silent, he is always working. God sent Jesus not simply to be the Savior of the world but to be the Savior in our world. Through Christmas, we are reminded that God always keeps his promises to us.
The Story Behind the Story (Genesis 12:3)
The Author of Life (Acts 3:15)
The Message of Christmas (Matthew 1:21)
Ready or Not . . . He Is Coming (Luke 1:37)

The Drop-Ins are a casual, weekly connection group who meet each week in Room 15 (the Library) for discussion. This is a group led class.

United Methodist Men is also a national organization. Our UMM group recently relaunched and with the help of some proactive men in our congregation they are thriving!

Want to know more? Contact Larry Price or call the Church Office!
Emmaus and Chrysalis
Emmaus and Chrysalis are retreat-style spiritual growth weekends designed for Teens (Chrysalis) and Adults (Emmaus).

Many members of our congregation have participated in a Chrysalis or Emmaus weekend, so just ask around!
