The middle hour

Inviting all Youth-Adults, to spend this Summer in THE MIDDLE HOUR,  a new twist on traditional Sunday School.  How does it work?  However you want!  There will be three offerings for the ten-week period. Each class will be designed in such a way that the lessons can stand alone from week to week. You will be able to stay in one group the entire time or move from class to class as you choose each week. 

The Middle Hour runs Sundays, June 2-August 4.  We’ll meet in the Noel Café from 10-10:10 am for fellowship & announcements, then off to your offering of choice until 10:50 am. The Treehouse will be participating in their own version of this summer fun & fellowship.  Try it out! No Registration, just join us.

#1 Everything You Wanted to Know About Methodism – And Then Some!  Whether you are new to the United Methodist Church or have been a lifelong Methodist, this study will review our history, our doctrine and our polity. You will learn what makes us like other Christian denominations and what makes us unique. We will look at our Social Principals and what they say about cultural, political and social issues of today’s society.  You may be surprised by some things and challenged by others as we learn the tenets of our Methodist heritage. Led by Noel Pastors.

#2  Bible Study-The Beauty of His Word Beginning with an exploration of the King James Version of the Bible—how it came to be and how its translators witnessed to its life-truths in such incredibly lovely language and unforgettable beauty.  Join us for this theological discussion and literary exploration, truth illuminated by beauty, beauty made vital by truth as Rev. Dr. Donald Webb begins this series. Rev. Dave Fortuna and Rev. Hulen Warren will close out the series as we delve further into the scriptures.
