How Did We Get Here? – A Brief History of the United Methodist Church
For almost 250 years Methodism in the U.S. has had a history of ministry filled with twists and turns. In this study, we’ll look at some specific moments in our history which has shaped us into the denomination of today. We’ll look at our changing nature of ministry, our understanding of mission and outreach, and look at the way the church has affected society and ways that society has effected the church. With a fun and lighthearted approach, we’ll follow our historical path and discover how we got here.
Leader: Dale Patterson (ldpatterson@verizon.net)
Start Date: May 9
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Bonhoeffer
One of Pastor Jenny’s faith giants and most influential teachers about what it means to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ was a German Lutheran pastor named Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who died in a concentration camp during WWII. In this study, we’ll look at four major themes in Bonhoeffer’s life and writings, which will deepen and shape our lives today. Together we’ll ask: “What is the Church?”, “What does it mean to live in Christian Community together?”, “What does true Discipleship look like?”, and “What does Jesus mean when he says Come and Die?”. This study is based on the book Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas, though reading that book is optional. We will have a study guide, a DVD, and one another to guide our time together.
