What Charles T. Studd Said About Light Has To Do With Jesus

The United Methodist Church is making a difference. The impact of 12.5 million United Methodists in 136 countries is being felt around the world. While extending help and serving abroad for the sake of the Great Commission is a real and important thing, so is loving our neighbor at home. We are called to both. In the 1800’s there was a British missionary named Charles T. Studd. C.T. Studd spoke words that have stuck with me: “The light that shines farthest shines brightest nearest home.” Human Relations Day is a powerful avenue to extend help and service to our local…

Tai Chi Begins Jan. 8

Mary Wakeley is ready to teach another session of Tai chi! Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might well be called “medication in motion.” There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best of health. Mary will walk you through the low-impact, slow-motion exercise on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 a.m. in Wesley Hall starting Jan. 8.

Advent Study Begins Wednesday, Dec. 5

Join us for the Advent study, "Christmas is Not Your Birthday" beginning Wednesday, Dec. 5. There will be two class times available: noon and 5:00 p.m. Every year, we say we’re going to cut back, simplify, and have a family Christmas that focuses on the real reason for the season—Jesus. But every year, advertisements beckon, the children plead, and it seems easier just to indulge our wants and whims. Overspending, overeating, materialism, and busyness rob us of our peace and joy and rob Jesus of his rightful role as the center of our celebration. This Christmas, cut through the hype…
