SMALL GROUPS AND STUDIES

MEN OF IRON

This group meets on Mondays, 6:30-8:00pm and then gather at Gallo’s afterwards. We will continue our reading of Traveling Light by Max Lucado. We get weary from carrying around excess baggage, like fear, worry, discontent. Wouldn’t it be nice to loose some of those bags? Using the twenty-third Psalm, Max Lucado walks through a helpful inventory of our burdens ans uses this Psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.

DISCERNMENT

From time to time we gather folks for a class on Discernment. The class is a unique opportunity to explore Spiritual Discernment… that is, figuring out what God is trying to tell us, or where God is leading, or making a decision that seems that we should consider God’s input. The class will be a commitment and a blessing all at the same time.
We meet for a total of 12 weeks. We will meet weekly for 3 weeks exploring what discernment means and how we do it. Then we will take a 6 week break from class, to practice what we’ve been learning, journaling and also read a book. Finally, we’ll get back together for 3 weeks to debrief our time apart and explore what might be next.
 
A new opportunity is coming soon provided through the West Ohio Annual Conference and facilitated by Kim LaRue. Discernment Retreats in the next months to encourage and assist in this process of listening to God. The cost is $25.00 per participant and you can register on the West Ohio Conference website
 
If you are interested in Discernment or have questions, contact Kim La Rue at kimlarue@powellumc.org
 
 
The group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 9:15-11:30 am.
Childcare is provided as well as breakfast!

STUDIES

TUESDAY MORNING GROUP (TMG)

 
This group meets on Tuesdays at 10:00am. We will be reading Intertwined with Jesus by Beverly Avers starting October 8th. Rev Bev Avers has created a devotional book to remind us that we are intertwined with Jesus. It is the idea of Emmanuel, God with us. She says, “It is overwhelming, being intertwined with Jesus and being connected always.” But it will help us become perfected in love on this earth. We have to open our hearts and minds to the idea that Jesus wants to be as close to us as intertwining suggests.
 
All are welcome!
