MAXIE DUNNAM 

The Wesleyan Way
September 19, 26 & October 3 | Seabrook Hall

What do we believe as Wesleyans? What’s distinctive about the Wesleyan Way and how we interpret the Bible? As debate in the UMC continues, join us as we learn more about the historic and orthodox positions the UMC has held since its formation as a movement by John Wesley.

 

CHRIST ACADEMY

Voice of the Heart
October 17,  24 & November 7

Join Corey Latta as he walks through the eight foundational feelings we all experience as humans created in the Image of God. See how Jesus experienced full humanity and the same type of feelings you and I face every day--feelings like anger, gladness, loneliness and sadness. Often we interpret these feelings negatively and avoid them, but Jesus shows us how these feelings are healthy expressions we have as children of God.

 

MEN

Authentic Manhood
Wednesdays, Sept. 19-Nov. 7 | Wilson/Ross 415-416
Led by Kyle Rote Jr. and Stueart Hudsmith, this Bible study gives men a vision for manhood as modeled by Jesus in His time on earth. Two opportunities this fall: Wednesday mornings at 6:15 in Seabrook Hall and Wednesday evenings at 6:10 in Wilson/Ross 415-416. Childcare available for evening session. 

 

WOMEN

MARRIED PEOPLE

Deep Love (Marriage Small Group)
Wednesdays, Sept. 19-Nov. 7 | Wilson/Ross 401-402
Wherever you are on your marriage journey, you can benefit from this DVD-based small group experience. Maybe your marriage is bad and you’d like it to be good. Or maybe it’s good and you’d like it to be great. Or maybe it’s already great and you want to ensure it stays that way. During this class, couples will take the Deep Love Assessment and interact with its findings, along with videos by relationship experts and authors of dozens of books, Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott. 

 

CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Wednesdays thru Dec. 5 | 9:30-11 a.m. or 5:30-7 p.m. | Dunnam 337

For those grieving the loss of a loved one, with video seminar and group discussion. Workbooks are $15; pay by cash or check when you come to the meeting. Wednesday Night Dinner will be available beginning at 5 p.m., and you are welcome to bring your meal into the class. 

 

Vision Building: 4-week course
September 19, 26 & October 3, 17 | Dunnam 335
Vision by definition is a mental image of what the future will or could be. In this four-week course, we will not only explore the biblical role of vision, but you will actually create and write your own vision. We will also walk through how to manage your energy to ensure you are staying "on your vision" and on the vision God has for you! Class size is limited, so register soon.
