Advent Small Groups

We’re excited to again offer a seasonal opportunity to grow in faith - deepening our relationships with God and one another by being part of a small group. For Advent 2018 we’re using the DVD-based study Home for Christmas, Tales of Hope and Second Chances. “Author and United Methodist pastor Rev. Justin Coleman matches real life stories of struggle and triumph to the Advent themes of hope, love, joy, and peace to show how the light of Christmas shines brightly even in hard times.”

 Small Groups will begin meeting on Monday, November 26th and will take place on various days and times to accommodate a range of schedules. Signup sheets are available across from Pastor Jeff’s office, and books are available for purchase for $10.00 each. For further information contact Associate Pastor Sharon Yarger at the CUMC office or at scyarger@optonline.net.

Groups are offered at the following dates and times:

Mondays, 12 noon - 1:00 PM Room 7: 11/16, 12/3, 12/10, 12/17 ; Co-Facilitators: Sue Maher and Melda Pike

Monday Noontime Bible Study  - Will not be held during Advent. We will resume Monday January 7th

Whether you’re brand-new to the Bible, or know it inside and out, you’re welcome! The group will meet each Monday from noon – 1:30 pm in Room 7. Feel free to bring your lunch or a snack, and feel free to bring a friend – whether or not they are part of CUMC. Questions?
