What about our Spiritual membership? Let’s Talk about it on Sundays at the 10:00 a.m. during Sunday School hour. The newly updated members class meets in the Pastor’s Study in the church office adjacent to the sanctuary Worship Center at Oakwood United Methodist Church, 2215 58th St., Lubbock, TX (Google Maps Link).
We will be using the Bible, short vignettes, The Wesleyan Way, and Key United Methodist Beliefs.
The Wesleyan Way: A Faith That Matters: “In this exciting and inspiring new study, Scott J. Jones helps seekers and believers to envision and practice discipleship as a way of life. Presenting Christianity from a Wesleyan perspective, Jones invites participants into a deeper, more thoughtful, more active commitment to Christ. This 8-session study helps participants focus on how, through discipleship with Jesus Christ, we become part of God’s work in transforming the world.”
Key United Methodist Beliefs: “Deepen your faith and enrich your life through this study of core Methodist beliefs. Written by popular seminary teachers, this book will connect you to the life and ministry of John Wesley, demonstrating relevance for the lives of Christians today as it offers an introductory examination of each. In easy-to-understand language, each chapter is divided into five sections:
- A Wesleyan Faith: an account of the basic ideas under discussion, understood in light of some of John Wesley’s insights;
- A Lived Faith: discussion of the practical, everyday implications for Christian living;
- A Deeper Faith: gets into some of the more difficult ideas of Christian thinking;
- The Catechism: shorthand way of learning the basics of Wesleyan Christianity; and
- In Your Own Words: reflection questions that will help you take the name of Jesus with you. “
Hope you will join us! See you in Church on Sunday!
