In Worship:  We continue our sermon series entitled, “Our Purpose is Love.” This week: “Visible Unity.”

Also, our annual Wesley chili cookoff will be this Sunday with prizes for the favorite recipes!.  Sunday School classes are asked to contribute the following items:  Journey of Faith – desserts; Believers – salads; Builders – grated cheese & chopped onions; Inspirers; cornbread; Children & youth – crackers & Fritos; Choir – Sour cream.

Here again are the questions for October 21st  for your reflection:

  1. John Wesley said, “The visible unity of the church exemplifies what it means to be the church.” Why do you agree or disagree with this statement?
  2. How have differences between you and others (both within and outside the church) been a blessing to you – and helped you grow in your faith?
  3. What is our proper response to people with whom we disagree?

And here are the questions for October 28st for your reflection:

  1. How can conflict became an opportunity for spiritual growth?
  2. What is our proper response to people with whom we disagree?
  3. What have you learned from this series?
  4. Where do you see disciples being made and the world being transformed because of the United Methodist Church?
