Women's Walk: November 13th - 16th
(Men's Walk will be in February 2015)
The Walk to Emmaus is a three day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. It begins on a Thursday evening and ends on a Sunday evening with the objective being to inspire, challenge and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches and places of business. These are enormously popular throughout the Methodist Community and everyone should experience it at least once. Get more information here.

We live in a world where marriages fail, bank account run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book Of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message that hope-filled living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do it? Where do we start? This six-week study offers us help and encouragement for navigating the challenges and uncertainties of life.
The study is Jeremiah – Daring to Hope in an Unstable World,
a 6 week study by Melissa Spoelstra. Contact Pastor Audrey,
