Introducing LIFE Groups (Living in Faith Everyday)
UBC is excited to begin weekly sermon-based small groups which will start the week of April 30-May 5 and conclude the week of May 28-June 3. These groups can meet any time during the week in homes, at church, or any other location that is convenient for a particular group. Each Sunday, church members will be given study guides that are based on that day's sermon and the groups will meet to discuss the themes that were introduced by the sermon topic. In addition, LIFE Groups will allow participants to share how Christ has been working in our lives so that we can grow as believers.
Those interested in hosting or leading a sermon-based small group is invited to attend the Small Group Leadership Training Meeting on Saturday March 25th from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. in the Lloyd Conference Room.
Sunday Bible Studies for Adults
Thinking about getting more involved in Bible Study? There are plenty of opportunities to study, pray, and fellowship with others. All Sunday Bible Studies meet at 9:30 a.m.
Adult 1: This group is an intergenerational class that is engaged in an unending study of every book, chapter, and verse in the Bible. The class is lecture style in format, but the strength of the class is the dialogue regarding what the texts say, what the texts mean and how the texts can be applied to life. The class is studying the Nehemiah and Esther and meets in the Parlor by the Davis Chapel. This study is led by Bryan Beverly.
Adult 2: This group will meet to discuss the book of James. We will be using NT Wright’s For Everyone Bible Study Guides as the basis of our discussions which will take place in the class room off of the Joy McCormick Center. This study is led by Georgia Smith.
Adult 3: This group will follow the Revised Common Lectionary texts and discuss how they relate to global current events. This study will take place in the Lloyd Conference Room and is led by Isaac and Ruth-Anne Mwase.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
We also have an adult devotional and prayer time from September-May on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the McCormick Center downstairs. The new study will begin on January 11th.
This winter, Rev. Harrington will be starting a new Bible study on the book of Revelation. With its apocalyptic genre, this book contains many strange symbols and images. However, it is also one of the most hopeful books of the Bible, describing how God will always care for His people, even during the most traumatic of times. If your schedule permits, please join us for our Wednesday night meals which offer a wonderful time of fellowship together. The meals take place right before this study at 6:00 p.m. in Heaver Hall.
If you have questions, please contact Rev. Harrington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
