Beginning September 6th, the middle of the week will offer quite a bit more here at Saint Andrew UMC. Sit down to a meal, laugh over dinner conversation, join a study or engage in discussion - all while children are formed through the Kid's Path for 7 Wednesdays this Fall. Fellowship and discipleship has now begun. Give yourself some intentional time this fall and join us as we connect with God and one another.
Ephesians: Preparation, Power, and Prayer: Join us as we journey into Paul's letter, which teaches how together with Christ we can be ready for whatever awaits us. We will be walking through a chapter each week with the study materials provided. You only need to bring yourself, your Bible (though that too can be provided), and a desire to know more about our big God. Facilitated by Joseph Seger
A Disciple’s Path: What does it truly mean to be a disciple of Jesus? A Disciple’s Path offers an overview of basic United Methodist beliefs and practices along with a uniquely Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God’s love and grace. If you are new to St. Andrew or simply want to deepen your relationship with Christ and the church, this study is for you. Two groups offered: Facilitated by Pastor Chris Danielson
Fail: What to Do When Things Go Wrong: Fear of failure can lead to lives of safety, predictability, and mediocrity. By contrast, people who learn to weather life’s disappointments often are prepared for lives of risk-taking boldness and adventure. When we learn how to fail, we learn how to live. In this study, we’ll look at the prophet Jeremiah and the teachings of Jesus to see how truly following Christ means learning how to fail and fail well. Facilitated by Jim Stephens
A Servant’s Heart: What would it be like to sleep outdoors without a mattress night after night? Homelessness is an issue so large we may feel unsure of how to offer compassionate support. Come be the servant’s hands to ACTIVELY help meet the needs of Lafayette Transitional Housing Homeless Services. We will explore ways to assist the homeless in Tippecanoe County. Facilitated by Julie Conlon
Holding Up Your Corner: We will learn about the realities of our community. We hear about the calling of Christians to act against injustice, inequality, and the forces of evil. This group's name is derived from the biblical story found in Mark 2:1-5 . Come find out why! Facilitated by Dana Kirkwood
Kids’ Path: Kids’ Path shows kids in kindergarten through fifth grade how to follow Jesus. Our focus is friendship, worship, prayer, Bible study, and service. We have fun and stay close to God when we take the path together. Facilitated by Suzanne Clemenz (Nursery care available for 3 and under)
Dinner served 5:45-6:15 p.m. Groups 6:30-7:30
Wednesdays September 6th - October 18th
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
