New Sermon Series On "The Big Assumptions" Beginning At Christ United Methodist

Wednesday, May 22, 2013
This summer, from May 26-Aug. 4, the pastor at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, will explore "The Big Assumptions" in worship. Over the years followers of Jesus have collected an array of unique words and phrases to describe biblical concepts and their experience with God and/or their view of the world.

A new Sunday School study, "Understanding the Will of God," comes out of sermons preached in London by Leslie Weatherhead during World War II. The six-week study will be led by Judy Driggans, beginning June 2. For information, contact Cathy Turner at 892-9363. 

Vacation Bible School will be Sunday, June 2 through Thursday, June 6 from 6 to 8:30 p.m or Monday through Friday June 3-7from 9 a.m. to noon. The theme for either will be Kingdom Rock.
