The IN-BETWEENERS
In-Betweeners is a fellowship group for those past college age (30?), up to late 50’s(?). We dont care about your age as much as we care about having fun and creating lasting friendships.

Disciple - Fast Track
A New Study

 

Over many years of attending church, we have probably developed a loving but confused relationship with the Christian Bible. I recall that as a youth, I would sit on a sofa in our high school Sunday School class and wonder, “Why do we read this book again and again? Surely we’ve got the point by now!”

 Thankfully, the United Methodist Church as a whole has awakened to the fact that many of its members live with a mix of love and confusion for Christian scripture. In response, some of our denomination’s brightest minds have assembled studies to communicate to everyone all the good that the Good Book has to offer.


As of this year, a new study called Disciple - Fast Track is available to serve as an excellent Bible 101 to help clear up confusion and build our confidence as we explore scripture's ancient truths side by side.

Beginning Wednesday, February 1, I'm planning to dedicate my Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. Pastor's Bible Study to the 12-week Disciple Fast Track study of the New Testament.  The class will be duplicated from 7:00-8:15pm each Wednesday evening.

The dates will be Wednesdays, February 1 - April 19.

This 12 week session includes weekly readings, videos and it should leave us with a good grasp of the New Testament.

If you will, please call the Church Office (714) 776-5710 or email me at jamesd@anaheimumc.org if you’re interested, and which time works best for you. I’m eager to get to know you better as we explore the richness of the Word.

In God's great Love,

Pastor James Dollins


SUNDAY MORNINGS

The Explorers meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in the Library.

In the next few weeks we will be starting a book titled The Gift Of Years, Growing Older Gracefully by Joan Chittister. We have come to know Joan Chittister as a remarkable and articulate writer. Each of the 42 chapters is self-contained. Here is a sample of some of the chapters: The Purpose of Life; Regret; Meaning; Fear; Ageism; Joy; Authority; Transformation; Newness; Accomplishment; Possibility; Adjustment; Fulfillment; Mystery ;Relationships

Quote from Chittisters chapter on Meaning: 'It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved,Cicero wrote over two thousand years ago, but by reflection, force of character, and judgement. In these qualities, old age is usually not only not poorer, but is even richer."

We invite you to join us! Questions? Talk to Mary Ann Jones or Loren Du Puy.

Other adult small groups may be offered during the Connections Hour every Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

Short-term Studies are offered throughout the year, studying specific books of the Bible, spiritual practices and topical studies.

Call the church office (714-776-5710) for information on current classes not listed here.
