A Firm Foundation — New Study Lead by Bro. Barry
September 25, 2018 - 11:00 AM
Bro. Barry will be leading a new study opportunity this fall. We will be using “A Firm Foundation”, a ten week study. The study will be using a video featuring a short teaching by Rev. Jessica LaGrone, Dean of Chapel at Asbury Theological Seminary. Each participant or couple will need a study book at the cost of $13. The study will begin Tuesday, September 25th, at 11:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall. If you would like to be a part of the study, please let the office know as soon as possible so books can be ordered. I sign-up sheet will also be located on the bulletin board outside the pastor’s office.
What does the future hold for The United Methodist Church? It is the question being asked all around our denomination. What should be the response to the competing visions and notable division within contemporary Methodism in North America? This study engages the deep heart questions of United Methodists and casts a compelling vision by trustworthy voices for dynamic faith.
Several of the best known pastors in Methodism have written the chapters exploring the power of classic ideas such as: The Lordship of Jesus Christ, Engaging scripture meaningfully, The power of the Holy Spirit, The promise of sanctification, Living with undivided purpose, Fostering dynamic discipleship and The gift of the global church. This resource is a useful tool not only in navigating present challenges but in pursuing the future promise for the people called Methodists. The foundational principles that have guided Methodist thought from the beginning of John Wesley’s countercultural movement remain rich resources as we explore what it means to remain faithful disciples in the tradition of the Wesleys.
