Spring Studies

We have many classes and groups who are starting Spring Studies.  Here are a few, but you can look at all our groups here.
Open Hearts Women’s Bible Study will begin our spring semester with Adam Hamilton’s Forgiveness:Finding Peace Through Letting Go. In this book and DVD study Hamilton shows how to receive the freedom that comes with forgiving – even if we are the ones who need forgiving. 
All are welcome to join us on Wednesdays at 9:30 in the Youth Hub Conference Room starting January 11, 2023. For more information, contact Patti Churner at pathedy@gmail.com.
United Women in Faith is having their first meeting of 2023 on 1/16 @ 9:30 at the Market Street @ El dorado & Ridge (meet upstairs).  Come share a snack and meet women of faith in mission and ministry.  
Military and Veterans Fellowship is having their January meeting on 1/11 at 10am in Dyer Hall.  The guest speaker this month is Bob Simpson, a member at FUMC who relocated to McKinney a couple of years ago following his retirement from the Veterans Administration in Birmingham. Bob will be discussing a unique VA program he worked in at the Birmingham VA hospital, the Blind Rehabilitation Service. As always, we’ll have coffee and snacks and an opportunity to catch up.  If you have any questions, please email me at mrkcampbell090@gmail.com or call me at 301-802-3732. 

Last Changes Study/Support Group for Seniors is a small group that meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays monthly at the church and online via Zoom. Their purpose is:

• To learn and to share information about aging with grace, living life fully, and dying with hope
• To take a spiritual approach to facing questions and concerns about aging
• To explore “last changes” from a practical, legal, medical, psychological, emotional and spiritual perspective
Their next meeting is Thursday, January 14 at 130 PM in room E215-225. Newcomers are always welcome. Contact Tom Kirwin (214-293-7344) for more information or for Zoom instructions.
Sarah Circle will meet Monday, January 16 at 6:00pm in the home of Marion Howell. We will be sorting and bagging items to have distributed to the Community Health Clinic patients as gift bags. Items, such as, shaving cream, wallet, gas gift card, razor, etc. are welcome for men. For women hand lotion, perfume, small jewelry, nice soap, etc. would be good. Bring any collected items and a snack to share to Marion’s to start our new 2023 year helping others and having fellowship together.
