The Young Adult Group gathers every Thursday evening at 7:00 pm in the Koinonia Room, with childcare available in Room 101. This fall they will focus on Kyle Idleman's book, Not a Fan. Read below to learn more about this book and come join them!
How about you: Are you a fan or a follower? Go ahead, think honestly about your relationship with God . . . but don't answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Not a Fan is your DTR with God - a "define the relationship" conversation to determine exactly where you stand.
You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but isn't ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you’re not into Jesus, period.
Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you.
Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years.
She discovered she had missed the point. Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey. Join Dina Wilson as she leads this study. Books are available in the church office ($10.00).
Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with ever-hardening positions held by people less and less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it.
One solution that hasn’t yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us. Hamilton rejects the easy assumptions and sloppy analysis of black and white thinking, seeking instead the truth that resides on all sides of the issues, and offering a faithful and compassionate way forward. Join Pastor Robert for this study beginning September 16 in Overflow Room East. Books are availble in the church office ($14.00).
Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times? Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand.
Become acquainted with the Voice that has spoken from a fire and a cloud, with visible signs and an invisible Spirit, through a burning bush and burning hearts. Hear from some of the most well known Christians in history about how God speaks to them, and discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.
Each section contains insights that will aid you in your desire to hear Him speak. Discover the treasure of recognizing how God keeps in touch with his beloved people. Join the Woven Women as Trudy Clark leads this study beginning October 7 in Overflow Room West.
Seed Groups are communities of people who Love God and Share how Jesus is actively transforming their lives as they Grow in Faith together, and serve as one of the small group ministries of FUMC McAllen. These groups do not gather together to study scripture or work through a curriculum together but instead focus on mutual accountability to one another, led by a trained Seed Group leader. A women’s Seed Group, led by Tanya Perales, meets every Tuesday at 10:30 noon in the Koinonia Room. A co-ed SEED group meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm in the Keystone Room. Contact the church office, 956-686-3784, for more information about SEED groups.
Every Tuesday at 12:00 noon, resuming on September 10, women are invited to gather for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Cynthia Murray leads this group as they share and encourage each other in their daily walk with Christ. Bring your lunch and enjoy this time with friends. This fall the group will be meeting in the north building in Overflow Room West.
