Methodist Movie Matinee/Discussion
Join us following 2nd service as we watch “Fatima” on the sanctuary screen. In 1917 Portugal, a 10-year- old girl and her two younger cousins witnessed multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary. This is an uplifting story about the power of faith in the setting of WW1. The film, popcorn, and beverages are FREE. Plan to stay after the movie for a brief discussion, pizza, and beverages. A free-will offering will be taken to help defray the cost of the pizzas. Family, friends, and neighbors are welcome!
Training for “Effective Discipleship Series Beginning October 22
Pastor Sam and others will lead a Training Series on “Effective Discipleship” on Saturday, October 22, 2022, from 9:00 – 11:00 am in Fellowship Hall. This training aims to have participants learn about practical tools for being and be-coming effective disciples of Jesus Christ in a local church context. The first session (10/22) will focus on: What is discipleship? Who is a disciple? Why is discipleship a key aspect of growing in our faith? The format will include a presentation, small group discussion, and Q and A. Light refreshments will be served. This training series will continue once a quarter. The next session will be scheduled in late January 2023. A Future with Hope…
