FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF NATCHITOCHES

SMALL GROUPS

DISCOVER FREEDOM THROUGH CHRIST


Life is about building memories through relationships with other people. One of the best ways to connect with other people in the church is to join a small group based on your interests.

Hands down, life is meant to be lived and shared with others -- just look at Adam and Eve. So it is only natural that small groups should be at the very heart of church life. Whether you're young or old, male or female, married or single, we have a small group that is right for you.

FEARLESS GROUP

Sundays, 9:45 - 10:35AM, Room 106

The FEARLESS Sunday group is on a new path of beginning with a short period of spiritual formation led by Linda Clark, followed by 30 minute Bible study with Bob Lane (now studying Romans)!


So come check us out – the great fellowship continues!  All ages, married or singles, welcome!


THE BEREANS

Sundays, 9:45AM - 10:45AM, Room 203

When the Apostle Paul came to town of Berea in Macedonia on his second missionary trip, Apostle Luke records: “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” Acts 17:11. The Bereans have long been seen as a positive example of how a person or community should respond to biblical teaching. We are called to eagerly learn from God’s Word and, no matter who the teacher is, to investigate new teaching in comparison with the Bible. The practice of the ancient Bereans is a model for all who desire to grow spiritually today.


We aspire to understand the scripture at a deeper level. We believe that the 66 books are a single message system; every book, every name, every detail is there by design. We try to recreate the historical setting in which the Scripture was written, we examine the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words, and then try to understand each verse at a time. We have just completed a series on the prophetic books of the Bible: Ecclesiastes, Ruth, Esther, Daniel, and Revelation. We will now begin a study on the Gospel of John, the mystical and spiritual interpretation of Jesus' life.


We study books of the Bible, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, and word by word. Anyone who seeks to understand how to read and interpret the Bible would benefit from this class. Come join us, who knows where we may go to next! Dr. Maurice Morelock is the leader and for or more information, call him at 318-652-6684 or email him at maurice.m.morelock@gmail.com.
