Wednesday Night Study

"Simplify"


by Bill Hybels


"When we spend our lives doing things that  keep us busy, but don't really matter, we sacrifice the things that do.  What if your life could be different?  Simplified living requires more than just cleaning out your closets.  It requires uncluttering your soul."

You are welcome to join any at any time.
Call the church office for additional information.

"Come Back to the Well"

A special bible study for women of all ages that is based on the landmark UCLA study that suggest that friendships between women are special.
 "They shape who we are and who we are yet to be.  Friends help us to live longer and better."

Starting in February, the group will meet every third Monday of each month at 7 pm in the
First United Methodist Church Library.
Call the church office for more information.
