Wednesday Night Bible Class

CREED by Adam Hamilton, is the topic of discussion on Wednesday nights, at 7:00 pm in room 49. This class is facilitated by Pastor Jim. This is an in depth study of the meaning behind the Apostles Creed. We explore what Christians believe… and also… why we believe. Have you ever wanted to know WHY it matters?  Then come to The Creed to first learn what we believe and then to move beyond merely reciting the words. 

“Not in God’s Name” by Jonathan Sacks

It’s simple…. Oceanview Reads! We make a point to read thought-provoking, challenging books about our lives, our spirituality and our understanding of God that serve as great conversation pieces in today’s world.

  2. Join us at either the 9 am service or the 11 am service on Sunday October 15th – when Dr. Paul Mojzes will speak on this topic. 
  3. Then come to the Book Club meetings on Sunday, October 22nd at 6 pm (first half of book) and also on November 12th (2nd half of book). 



10:15 am – Sunday Mornings

“United Methodism in America” offers a panoramic view of the forces and personalities that shaped The United Methodist Church in the United States. Three noted United Methodist historians provide laypersons with a brief history of The United Methodist Church. They skillfully trace the church’s origins, beginning with a look at the renewal movement that led to the early denominations within Wesleyanism. They continue through the Second Great Awakening, the periods of slavery and the Civil War, the mergers and unions of the twentieth century, the causes championed by United Methodism, and more.

The book will be $10.00 (collected in the class). Greg Rogers is facilitating this class… so get coffee and a snack in Fellowship Hall and bring them at 10:15 am Sundays to Room 49.
