VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

This is a joyful week where children gather to learn about God with a new theme each year.   Follow this LINK to see what fun we had at Cave Quest VBS 2016.

BIBLE STUDY

Tuesday Evening Bible Study is a group of 10 -16 men and women that have been meeting weekly for several years to study a variety of scriptural programs.  The group has chosen various studies and for the last year or so has been studying programs from Kerygma. The programs have been very diverse and have included, Exodus - Gateway to the Bible, Into the World - The Acts of the Apostles, Parables - Stories for Life in God's World, The Light Will Shine - A Study for Advent.

The class meets in the Hathorne room.  The class meets from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. The group has an annual dinner at the conclusion of the spring study, generally late May. The group takes a summer break and resumes in September.

Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy: the Bible & Brahms' Requiem  7 Sessions:  February 14 through March 28 2017

Follow this famous requiem on a tour of Biblical prompts about death, grief, the brevity of life, and faith for here and hereafter.  Through music and Scripture, we move from graveside to grieving, from the challenges of self-reflection to new perspectives and hope beyond.  

There is a resource book required for the course at a cost of $13. If you are interested, contact Kurt Kuhn or call 410 279-0340..

Wednesday Morning Bible Study We will be meeting in the Church Library beginning January 18th from 10:00 - 11:30am for a 6 week study on the Beattitudes.  Our resource book, Blessed Are You, will take us on a pilgrimage through scripture and life today.  Reserve a book by contacting Ann Brady, 410-212-4680.

This is a perfect starting point for those who are new to learning about the Bible with others through a guided study. 

BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP

Asbury’s Book Discussion Group has chosen 6 selections for 2017.  The meeting dates and selections are described HERE.  The group is open to newcomers and meets in the Fisherman classroom at 7:30 pm on the dates noted.  In December, the group has a dinner meeting at a member’s house and they select the books for the next year at that meeting.

UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

United Methodist Women meet on a monthly basis in members’ homes at 7:30 p.m. the second Monday of the month.  

The group supports their mission commitment through pledging and fundraising.  The UMW Flea Market and Bake Sale, held in March of 2016, raised over $3,800 for mission projects.
