Sermon Reflection Studies

Sermon Reflection Studies

Online All Church Study Classes

Our Sermon Reflection Studies are produced in-house at Manchester UMC by the Pastor of Adult Faith Formation. This curriculum is produced weekly and is based off of the sermon for the week. These studies are open to everyone with no homework required. Sermon Reflection Study Groups meet throughout the week and you can join any time. See below which time works best for you! Or, use this curriculum as a guide for personal devotion.

Weekly Participant Guide

Becoming Human,
Embodying Easter
Apr. 4-May 5, 2021
Our Easter series will center on the idea of being “fully human.” We Christians believe that Jesus was both fully human and fully divine. It’s a difficult concept to wrap our brains around! If Jesus is the only person to be fully divine does that also mean that he is the only person to ever really be fully human? In this series Pastor Andy will help us wonder about the nature of Christ and our human nature.
