How would it feel to have a saving faith - a faith that gives you riches, a faith that is with you everywhere with anyone, a faith that is deep, a faith that is strong, a faith that is loving, a faith that is joyful, a faith that makes you feel safe always?
We all want this kind of faith- and it's available to everyone! Pastor John Blossom's sermon series "Fire Up a Saving Faith" this summer leads us on a journey through the New Testament letter to the Ephesians, to lean how early Christians discovered and practiced this saving faith.
You can pick up a copy of a study guide in our church to help you to learn and apply the lessons of Ephesians to your own life. Use it to reflect on this important letter as you read it, to pray on how you want to apply it to your own life. Share your insights and prayers with others in our Methodist Faith Groups, or with your family and friends. You can also print the study guide out from our PDF version here or below. We hope that this sermon series helps you to fire up your faith this summer!
Faith doesn't pop out of thin air: faith is a habit, the constant process of renewing and growing our relationship with God and one another, so that we will be part of God's story of salvation - especially when we need it most!
This Lent season, we are beginning our commitment to faith formation groups, which will help anyone to find and grow our faith together. Anyone from anywhere can join a faith formation group, there is no need to have expertise in the BIble or specific beliefs, only a desire to find a better way than the ways of the world.
Our faith formation groups will meet Sundays at 5PM and Wednesdays at 7PM in the Clark Room of our education building (door to the right of our office entrance on Main Street). Our format will be simple: opening prayers and statements, a time to listen to people reflecting briefly on their walk with God, group reflections on a reading for the day, and a closing prayer.
No reading in advance is necessary, but we encourage people this Lent (Feb 14th - March 31st) to use Adam Hamilton's reflection book "The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus" to guide your formation of faith during the week ($7 in the church, available online here).
Other publications that can be useful are available in the church, including our "Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living" book for people seeking the Methodist way of discipleship. Bibles are available for free in the church foyer, and online for free at various Web sites.
Come grow in faith with others, so that together we can become God's story, one person at a time!
