Please join our Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study at First United Methodist Church as we begin our fall class on Wednesday, August 30. We will be using a guide by N.T. Wright to take a deeper look at the book of John. All women are encouraged to attend this dynamic group. Nothing required… just show up and have an open heart.

The class meets at 9:00 a.m. every Wednesday in room 213. Drop-ins are welcome. Childcare is provided.

Books will be available at the first meeting or in the church office for a suggested donation of $6.

Group is led by Pastor Greta McDonald, Maggie Roth, and Leah Ostwald. Questions? email mthurmanroth@gmail.com.

This fall we will be studying Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Basic Questions in Theology - Collected Essays, Volume 1.
This book of essays is from one of the foremost theologians of our day and offers the reader a unique insight into the revelation of God. Pannenberg is Professor Emeritus of Theology at the University of Munich and author of several influential books.

We will only bite off a small section of this book each week, so that the readings will not be a hardship for anyone. Get ready for some interesting discussions around the exciting ideas presented in this book.

Books will be available for sale during class and in the church office for $25.
