WMC: May 2017
As you may well be aware from the Church newsletter and website, our church will be taking part in the Methodist Church's initiative Bible Month, that takes place during June.
All Methodist churches around the country are being encouraged to participate in this.
The idea being that during this month the focus will be on the book of James, through worship and study groups.
The Circuit Local Preachers are happy to be involved in this, so our services during June will be based on and around the book of James, starting on 4th June with "Worship through ..James"
For each week, there is a theme that helps us together explore the depths of this book.
1. Doers of the word (James 1)
2. Faith and works (James 2)
3. Speech and wisdom (James 3)
4. Living for the Lord (James 4)
Eileen's Tuesday afternoon House Group will be using the study material during the month.
There will also be a study group set up especially for this, that will meet on Monday evenings in the church foyer from 7:30-9:00pm, which will be facilitated by the Church Stewards and Keith.
If you would like any further information, please speak to Carolyn, Alison, Heather or Keith
