“The Will of God” Starts Wednesday Night!
After City Temple in London was reduced to rubble by the unrelenting bombs dropped by Nazi Germany during the worst of times during World War II, Rev. Leslie Weatherhead crafted five sermons on understanding the will of God to help his congregation endure religious doubt as their city–and church–crumbled around them. Weatherhead’s sermons were eventually published as “The Will of God,” a resource that has sold more than a million copies and has been a lifeline for grieving persons seeking to understand God’s purpose for their pain. You are invited to this five-week study during Lent as we explore God’s Intentional Will, God’s Circumstantial Will, God’s Ultimate Will, Discerning the Will of God, and God’s Will is our Peace. Join us for “The Will of God” led by Pastor Mike Powers in room 128 from 6-7:15 p.m. on Wednesday nights.

Do you have questions about God but hesitate to ask them?
You are invited to the Sunday school class of Dr. Kenneth Collins, a professor at Asbury Seminary. Dr. Collins is known around the world as the expert on John Wesley studies. We are blessed to have Ken and his wife, Marilyn, as members of our church family.
The class meets at 11 am every Sunday in the Trinity Room, room 116, located next to the gym. Dr. Collins talks about the meaning and purpose of our lives as Christians, and allows plenty of time for discussion of those questions we hesitate to ask. Limited seating, so come early!
