Wilson United Methodist Church


Intimacy with God and Connecting with Others

9:00 am Adult Sunday School Class

The adult Sunday School class meets on Sundays at 9 am - 10 am.

On Sunday, November 5th, the Adult Sunday School will begin a new discussion of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount entitled "Good News, God Reigns!" led by Larry Burtoft. What is the gospel of Jesus Christ, why is it good news for us, and how do we enter into the blessings that it promises? These questions and more will be asked and discussed (and hopefully answered!). Larry is a former pastor and seminary teacher who loves to engage with others in the truly audacious and life transforming teachings of Jesus. All are welcome to join us at 9:00 am each Sunday in room 14B. For questions, please contact Diane or Bruce Witherspoon or the church office at wilson@wilsonumc.org.

Monday Morning Women's 9:30 am Bible Study

The Women's Bible Study group meets on Mondays at 9:30am - 11:00am.

Starting October 30, the women will be doing a 6-week study using the book The World Jesus Knew: Beliefs and Customs from the Time of Jesus by Anne Punton. What did Jesus wear? What foods might he have eaten? What religious customs and festivals did he observe? In The World Jesus Knew: Beliefs and Customs from the Time of Jesus, Anne Punton explores the everyday world of the central figure of the Christian faith. Punton does a fine job of discussing how "mundane" aspects of life (particularly agriculture) influenced Jesus' teachings.

The group will take a break for Christmas and decide if we want to continue with this book or do a different study in January (since this study will not finish the book).

For more information contact Karen.Pherson.

Tuesday Morning Men's Bible Study

The men meet every Tuesday morning from 6:30 am to 7:30 am in room 14B. They enjoy great company and move through different Bible based books while munching on goodies and drinking coffee. The group is led by Bjorn Braun.

The men are currently studying the minor prophets using the book Immersion Bible Studies: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah by Bruce Epperly.
