Journey Through The Bible Class
  • Gathers in Room 113 at 9:30am on Sunday mornings
  • Current Study: “Be Encouraged”  /  by: Warren W. Wiesbe
      • The early church in Corinth was falling apart. Sin was rampant, divisions were growing, and the congregation was living no differently than the world around them. What had corrupted this once vibrant church? The apostle Paul immediately understood the symptoms: The people had traded God’s perfect wisdom for faulty human knowledge. 

        Be Encouraged guides us through Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, where he encourages his fellow believers to embrace a life of wisdom and truth.

  • You will prepare for the interactive discussion by pre-reading material.  The group invites you to join them as they delve deeper into God’s Word and real-life application as they encourage one another.

 New Membership Classes

A DISCIPLE PATH — We will begin gathering for the fall membership class on Sunday, September 26th from 9:30am to 10:30am in the Fireside Room. The Tuesday evening option will not be offered at this time due to lack of interest for that option.

There will be six gatherings where we will get an opportunity to know more about one another and grow in our faith journey! The members of Grace share a love of Christ and also bring their unique faith backgrounds which creates a beautiful blended family of faith. So, whether you have a life-long history of being a part of the UMC or your pathway has taken you on a different journey – we are all one in Christ and this small group is a wonderful beginning to connecting to one another! All participants will be invited to share in taking their membership vows on Sunday, October 31, 2021 during the 10:45 am service.

Please email Tammy to indicate interest in attending by September 1, 2021 in order to receive necessary materials for our gatherings. A Disciple’s Path participant books will be available for pick-up on Rally Day, September 12, 2021. You will need to complete the first week of reading prior to our first gathering. Questions? Contact Tammy at or (717) 566-2897.
