Hudson also briefly explores the lives and thoughts of 4 significant characters in the Christmas story, encouraging readers to immerse themselves in the dramatic story. His simple approach provides a doable daily practice and gently leads readers to discover how they can open their hearts and lives more generously to God.

 Why? A Small Group Study with Pastor Chris

to Nov 15

Why? A Small Group Study with Pastor Chris

Often, when people come to the church, they have questions. Those questions can range from details about why certain churches do what they do and other questions have major implications about for what we believe. In this six week series, we are going to talk about the 6 common questions people have as they get involved in the life of the church:

  • Why Jesus?
  • Why Church?
  • Why Communion?
  • Why Baptism?
  • Why United Methodist?
  • Why the Bible? 

At the end of the study, my hope is that the people who attend the class will have a deeper understanding of the basic tenets of their faith and how they relate to their lives.
