As with most things at Thomasville First Methodist, traditional and contemporary opportunities for discipleship meet every Sunday morning at 9:45 am. TFUMC relies on Sunday School to ground our members in the basics of the Christian faith while helping them build relationships with others in the congregation. Often, Sunday school classes will participate in events outside the classroom, such as local outreach opportunities. Each class has its own unique style and flavor.
In the "Connect" menu above, you'll find various groups meeting, each with a different focus and composition. Some use a discussion format while others explore the Bible in through lecture. Traditional Sunday school materials and DVD curriculum are used in each class. Other small groups and discipleship opportunities meet during the week as well.
Small Groups Starting This Fall
This Fall, TFUMC hopes to offer a small group for mothers. Vicki Courtney’s 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter helps mothers navigate the difficulties women face growing up. It also helps deepen the bond between mothers and daughters of any age. If you are interested in being a part of this small group, please contact Lisa Knapp (firstname.lastname@example.org). Those who participate will have the opportunity to join in a mother-daughter small group using Vicki Courtney’s Between Us Girls.
The dates are:
Septemer 11, 18, 25
OFF on October 2nd for FALL BREAK
October 9, 16, 23
The group will meet in Portico 2 from 4:00-5:30pm
Participants will need to visit one of the following websites to order the Bible Study Member Book, it's $11 at her website and $11.95 at Lifeway Stores site. Here are the links:
Sunday School/Small Group Offerings
We have two new group studies available for classes and small groups. Feel free to give Sam a call to preview for your group.
In “Gracenomics: Unleash the Power of Second Chance Living,” Mike Foster describes our society as a vulture culture, where grace is scarce and in high demand. The latest research points to a venomous harshness that has crept into our relationships, entertainment, religion and politics.
This red-hot-relevant manifesto offers up an innovative solution called “Gracenomics” which deals with the production, consumption and distribution of grace. Through transparent storytelling, practical insights and engaging visuals, “Gracenomics” will show you how to become a grace dispenser and unleash the power of second chance living.
When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations; where is God? In Why? Making Sense of God's Will best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God.
We also have a large number or options available in the library. Feel free to stop by and find something that looks interesting.
New Discipleship Opportunity:
Several people have come forward looking for the opportunity to get together during the Sunday School hour and go through Maxie Dunnam’s Workbook of Living Prayer. We’d like to start this special discipleship group this Fall. It’s open to everyone who interested in delving into the topic of prayer and spiritual growth. Interested? Feel free to call Sam if you’d like to take part in this opportunity.
