"Knowing Who We Are" - Methodism Class

Do you have questions about how Methodism started, what we believe, and how we do things? Do you want to understand how the UMC does business and works to transform the world through it's connectional system? On the heels of the UMC General Conference, we'll be offering a class on Methodism on Tuesday evenings via zoom at 7 pm, beginning May 14. Led by Kim Carroll and Julia Walker, this class will be using the book "Knowing Who We Are" by Laceye Warner, a professor of Methodism at Duke University, as its primary resource. This is a great class for both those new to the church or long-time attendees who want a refresher on who we are.

Understanding the Greatest Apostle

There are 27 books in the New Testament out of which at least 13 are attributed to the Apostle Paul meaning that he is believed to be the author of half the New Testament. Many consider him to be the first Christian theologian. His impact on the development of the Christian church is beyond dispute.


However, Paul’s writings have always produced controversy and even Paul himself would be shocked if he knew that his letters had been canonized and placed into Holy Scripture. When scholars and laypeople debate differences in interpretations they will quote Paul more often than the Gospels. 


Beginning May 30th on Thursdays from 10 - 11:30 on Zoom we will take a deep dive into the second most important person in Christian church. We will take a look at how to understand what Paul was saying and why it is so often misunderstood.  Join us for this insightful class.
