SUMMER BIBLE STUDY

Led by Sandra Reed

June 7 - July 19

Thursday mornings 10 - 11:15 a.m. 

Room 212 at FUMCT

In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to

the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal

with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace,

neighborhood, school, home, social media community or

church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing

the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this

means and how we can live it out day by day. (Book cost $16).

Email Sandra to register.


BREAD & WINE SMALL GROUP

Mondays, June 4, 11, 18 & 25 | 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Written by well-loved writer Shauna Niequist, this is a funny

the celebrations and traditions we share, and the ways God

nourishes us as we nourish the people around us.

WHAT IS CULTIVATE?

The purpose of Cultivate is to create a sense of belonging for women of our church and community where we can grow in our faith, prayer life and friendships through studying God's word, serving his people and shepherding one another along life's journey. In conjunction with UMW, Cultivate strives to provide multiple opportunities for women to gather and develop meaningful relationships as they draw even closer to Christ.

Through small group Bible and book studies, service projects and social gatherings, Cultivate hopes to create safe spaces to discuss and learn how to deal with the struggles of everyday life, the joys and heartaches that come with each stage of life and offer women the chance to encourage each other, be vulnerable with one another and develop more Christian friendships and support systems that are multi-generational. We hope you join us!
