New Fall Life Group Studies Beginning in September!

Feed your soul by being in a small group for study, encouragement, prayer & friendship. We want to welcome you to any of the following Fall studies beginning soon. Contact the group facilitator or the office to sign up.

Sunday at 4pm begins September 19 
“Color of Compromise” by Jemar Tisby   

This small group DVD study examines the history of the Church’s complicity in racism and discusses solutions for inclusivity. This study is not a call to shame or a platform to blame white Christians. It is anchored to the biblical principles of human dignity and equality. Do you have a dream for a more racially unified church and land? Come learn about the past so we as Christians can take steps toward a future made in line with God’s image. Facilitated by Gretty Myers and Rev. Mollie. westlakeumc@westlakeumc.org

“Pursued, God’s Relentless Love For You” by Jennifer Cowart    

Together in this 6 week study we will explore God’s love as evidenced in the stories of creation, the patriarchs, the judges and prophets, Jesus, and the early church. We will see the big picture of God’s love for us, discover that God wants a personal relationship with each one of us, and realize that God will never stop pursuing us.
