Disciple Bible Study
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Rev. Karen will be teaching Disciple Bible Study this year on Sunday evenings from 6:30 until 8:30. Disciple Bible Study is an intensive 34-week course that takes you through most of the Bible. Daily readings prepare you for an in-class video presentation followed by discussion that will help you understand the Bible as you never have before. This course is an overview of the entire story of God's relationship with humanity, throughout the Old and New Testaments.
Mission Trip to Liberia's Camphor Mission
Are you interested in being a missionary, even if just for a couple of weeks? A team is forming to go to Liberia’s Camphor Mission in West Africa from February 15 - March 3. Cost of the trip will be about $3,500 with travel, food, lodging, a Visa, and vaccinations. The church will help pay for the cost and help with fund-raising for anyone who is interested in going.
UMVIM teams will sleep in single beds with mosquito nets. Food will be mostly rice and vegetables with chicken or fish.
Time will be spent in the school with teaching, tutoring students, and perhaps painting classrooms. The clinic is very rural and does not do a lot of medicine. Time will be spent with the traditional birth attendants and doing outreach to rural village for vaccination and water wells. It is always possible to be at work in the agriculture fields and working with the newly formed 4-H group on the mission. Building relationships with staff and students and the people in the surrounding village is always the priority.
If you are interested, please talk to Rev. Karen for more details. The first team meeting is September 29 at 2 p.m. at Macedonia UMC.
