  • The Great Divide Class

    In this time when there is much talk about division in the UMC, we  would like to offer a study on division and how it can actually be a good thing.  Believe it or not, division has been present in the church ever since Paul and Barnabas split paths with each other.  During this six-week class, we will look at why the church divides, what comes from division and how division has actually helped the church become stronger (and at times weaker).  This class will be held each Wednesday from July 6 to August 10.  The class starts each week at 3:30 pm.
