Spring Semester 2018

The Magnificent Story by James Bryan Smith
Room 12E (Chapel)

We are story-making people. We love reading stories—and we love hearing the personal stories of others. We need stories, or narratives, to make sense of our world. And those stories shape our lives.

What is the story you have been told about the gospel? About God? About the Christian life? About Jesus? About the cross? About yourself? About heaven?

Your answers to these questions will form a story that will determine how your life will go. The answers reveal your ability to trust, to love, to hope—and even your capacity for joy. Any story worth giving the power to shape our lives must pass a simple test: Is it beautiful, good, and true? If it is, then it is a magnificent story—and that is where transformation takes place.

This study will be facilitated by Dennis Richardson (316-619-8892)

Introduction to Wesleyan Small Groups
Room 15E

Join us in this introduction class as we explore what made the early Methodism movement so successful. We will explore how John Wesley encouraged people to practice spiritual disciplines and care for each other’s souls in the process. The purpose of the small group is for participants to experience the transformational grace of God through journeying together with fellow believers. This will be a 12-week group.

For more information or questions, contact Pastor Isaac at

Room 13E

Come join a group of ladies who desire to provide love and support to each other as they deepen their faith and apply it to their daily lives. Topics of study vary and are chosen by the group. Cost of books vary and will be discussed by the group.

This group is facilitated by Ginny Hall (316-200-4209)


Thursdays

Wesleyan Small Group
Room 12E (Chapel), 6:30pm

Modeled after John Wesley’s class meetings which tremendously grew the church, we meet weekly to watch over one another in love as Scripture instructs us.
