LEARNING GROUP: Joy
Time: 9:00 to 10:00 a.m.
Location: Room 141 | Manchester UMC
Leader: Jane Carr
Zoom Meeting ID: 437 814 450
Description: The Joy class meets in person in room 141 or on line via Zoom. Our lessons will be from the Adult Bible Studies. Join us as we learn about the three units of Bible lessons in this quarter unify around the theme, “Belong.” Sociologists studying the story of the early church often attribute the growth of the church to the sense of belonging that it offered people in a world where belonging was limited to those with things such as property, high status, and/or birthright. We will examine various ways that the Bible makes clear how we belong to God’s people even when we appear to be outsiders. The lessons move through various responses people of faith are called to make as they live out their faith in both good times and difficult ones.
For the Winter lessons, we will again use the Adult Bible Studies curriculum around the theme, “Engage”. We will focus on Advent which is a time of anticipation and waiting. This unit invites us to explore waiting as an important element in three episodes in Luke’s telling of the Christmas story. It ends with a reminder that as much as we are called to wait for the Lord, Jesus Christ waits patiently for us.
Newcomers are always welcome!
