Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts

Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts
July 21st, 9AM - 5PM
CUMC, Rogers
Deadline to register July 5th

This course is required for the Lay Speaker certification as well as being an advanced course for the Certified Lay Servant. In this course, participants will discover their spiritual gifts, develop and prepare the gifts, and make plans to use the gifts to spread the Christian experience in their communities and beyond. It is our hope that your understanding will help you support others in the discovery of their gifts, so that the church as a whole can be built up. God has given each of us special gifts. Yet, in our faith communities, it is the combined efforts of many individuals using all of God’s gifts that further His purposes and plans.

The text for this course is, Each One a Minister, by William J. Carter.

The book must be read prior to class attendance. However, the written exercises do NOT need to be completed prior to our session. Many of the exercises we will do as a class, in small groups, and individually during our time together.

Include $20 to cover extra class materials, lunch, etc. You can also use the Donate button below and note that the “donation” is for the Spiritual Gifts Lay Servant class.

Walk to Emmaus
Aug

to Aug 29

Walk to Emmaus

Encounter the Risen Christ through an “Emmaus” Experience

The Walk to Emmaus® is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The Walk to Emmaus® experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion. The "Emmaus® community," made up of those who have attended an Emmaus® weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving.

Many church leaders acclaim Emmaus® as much more than a program. It is a powerful movement of spiritual renewal that is making a difference for countless individuals and many congregations. 

Local walks include:

The Emmaus Walk: Face-to-Face for those  60 years or older who desire a deeper, more meaningful walk with the risen Christ. Experience the Emmaus tradition in a daytime setting at CUMC Fayetteville March 17, 20, 22 and 24 9:00am-4:00pm. To register, please visit: centraltolifer.com/facetoface  

The 2018 Men’s Walk to Emmaus is  August 23-26 at St. Scholastica in Fort Smith.

The 2018 Women’s Walk to Emmaus is April 26-29 at St. Scholastica in Fort Smith.

Gospel of Luke Study

 
Luke.png
 

Rev. Jim Lenderman has asked the congregation to read a Gospel each week or each month.  To assist you with that task, a 6-week class on the Gospel of Luke will be offered during the Sunday School hour (9:15 to 10:10) beginning April 15 and ending on May 20. The average reading each week will only be about four chapters of Luke.  George Rhoads will lead this special study with an emphasis on guiding the discussion, not lecturing.  The only requirements are that you read the assigned scripture before class, and that you bring your Bible to class.  The assignment for April 15 is to read your Bible's introduction to Luke and Luke 1:1 to 4:13 (births of John the Baptist and Jesus, the ministry of John the Baptist, and the pre-ministry of Jesus). Room 223.

Reacquainted

Reacquainted Announcement.png

Join us for our current sermon series we’re calling “Reacquainted.” The idea is to get reacquainted with some of the more familiar Bible stories – but this time we’ll do it from a slightly different angle so our familiarity with those scriptures won’t hinder us from engaging God in fresh ways. What does God want to say to us today through someof the most recognizable Bible passages? Join us and find out.

This Sunday we will get reacquainted with the account of Samson. He is a great example of the cost of self-pride. When we believe we can do it all on our own strength and we don’t need God then we set ourselves up for a fall. Tough our pride is often more subtle than Samson’s it’s just as costly.

Disaster Response Certification Training

“WHEN THE EARTH ROCKS, UMCOR ROLLS”… You may not realize that when disasters hit in the U.S. and Territories, very often the first on the scene are the Methodists…in the form of United Methodist Committee on Relief. Local churches can become an arm of UMCOR thru certification by UMCOR trainers. 

NOW’S YOUR CHANCE – Mark your calendar for Friday, January 12 (6:00 to 9:00 p.m.) and Saturday, January 13 (TBA). Byron and Janice Mann serve as the Arkansas Conference Coordinators for disaster relief training. The Mann’s will be at Central to teach classes enabling CUMC to be a Disaster Relief Church with members that are certified. The training will be open conference-wide as we welcome United Methodists from all over our state to this event. 

Why do we want to be certified? First of all, we want to be ready and prepared when disaster strikes. Second of all, teams do not have access to disaster situations without certified members. WE WANNA BE READY! 

A winter/early spring trip is planned for the Houston area which was so badly damaged by Hurricane Harvey. On the form that has been sent for our CUMC team, the first question is: Is your team UMCOR certified? By February or March we WILL be! Won’t you join us and make a significant difference to the thousands of people affected by this year’s natural disasters. 

PRE-REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY! The fee for registration is $30 and covers lunch, training materials, background check and badge. 

Make checks payable to CUMC, and on the memo line write: DISASTER TRAINING. 

Please contact Les Oliver with any questions.

Anxious for Nothing Bible Study

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm? In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears. Men and women are invited to join Bonnie Grimes Tuesdays at 3:30 beginning November 14th in Rm 105. Call the church offce to register, 636-1630. Books availble for $10 in the church office.
