Exciting Offerings for this Fall Session Wednesday Evenings, 6-8 PM
ALPHA: If you are curious about faith, feel like you need re-energized in your faith, or maybe new to BUMC, Alpha could be for you. Alpha has been tried by millions in 169 countries and translated into 112 different languages. The sessions encourage discussion in a friendly, honest and informal way, around topics such as “Who is this Jesus?”, “Why did Jesus die?”, and “How to make the most of my life?” TV personality Bear Grylls said the “Alpha is the best thing I ever did. It helped answer some huge questions.” Facilitator: David Lord
RENOVATE: Renovating a house can be an exciting and rewarding experience but, in the process, the house is often in a state of disarray which can cause stress and frustration. God wants to renovate your life by creating a “new you” with an improved heart. It’s not going to be easy, and your life might experience some disarray. In Renovate, Jacob Armstrong uses the book of Nehemiah to explore the physical and spiritual renovation experienced by the nation of Judah. Nehemiah knew his plan for renovating the wall and gates of Jerusalem would be hard work. But the spiritual renovation of the Jewish people would be equally hard. Thankfully, this process is not DIY. Facilitator: Bill Hamilton
EARN. SAVE. GIVE: John Wesley boils fiscal responsibility down to just three rules: Earn all you can; Save all you can; Give all you can. Sounds simple, right? But easy in today’s culture? James Harnish’s 21st century translation of Wesley’s money management philosophy may give you a new way to think about money. This study uses a DVD. Facilitator: Larry Broomall

If you or anyone you know is going through the loss of a loved one, this class may help. Facilitator: Barry Pote
