Do you sometimes feel lost in the crowd? Do you have neighbors or friends who would like to know Jesus better, grow in faith, or have questions about faith and the Bible? Or maybe a group of friends who are Christians and want to grow in faith through a small group experience? If you would like to start a small group, Susan can help you with resources to fit the goal of your group.
If you are interested in any of these, please call or email the church office.

The Wesleyan Journey: A Workbook on Salvation
Maxie Dunnam explores Wesley’s understanding of salvation through prayer, study, and reflection. Based on John Wesley’s theology and the Bible’s teaching on what it means to be saved, we see that full salvation is not just a one-time experience of redemption but a lifelong process of becoming more like Jesus every day. Consider anew God’s ever-present grace, the experience of acceptance, pardon, and forgiveness, and the lifelong journey to become more Christ-like. If you are interested, please call the church office or message Susan. Time/day will be set according to interest.
Alpha Course is great resource used at many United Methodist churches for home groups and inviting people who have questions about the basics of Christian faith (how to read the Bible, how/why to pray, does God heal, who is Jesus and why did he have to die, why is there suffering in the world, what is the church, how can I have faith?).
Keys to Freedom by Mercy Ministries is a study focusing on finding freedom in relationship with God through Jesus and would be a great study for Lent. It includes topics such as Hearing God’s voice, committing and connecting with Christ, Choosing to Forgive, Healing Life’s Hurts, Authority in Christ.
Unbound by Neal Lazano — Despite our best efforts, many of us struggle with sinful patterns of thinking and behaving. Our lack of freedom leaves us feeling hopeless. Jesus sets us free. In Unbound, you will discover the keys to freedom. Balanced and hopeful, Unbound will help you to start living the abundant, glorious life God has in mind. One of Pastor Susan’s sisters recommended this study after doing it at her church.
Wake Up: An Introduction to the Second Half of the Gospel — In this study, you’ll dive into the second half of the gospel. While many of us have repented of our sins and experienced the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ, most of us are still asleep to the second half of the gospel. And as you’ll soon discover, the rest of the gospel is the best of the gospel.
