"Simon Peter: Flawed by a Faithful Disciple - A Video and Discussion Series with Adam Hamilton
A 6 week Study starting Sunday, September 22 • 9:15 a.m. • CUMC Wesley Room

With Ellie & Tom Wilmeth

He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man. And that’s the point of Simon Peter, a six-week adult Bible study by Adam Hamilton. Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God’s extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today.

"Jesus Outside the Lines: A way forward for those who are tired of taking sides" by Scott Sauls 
A 10 week Study 
starting Sunday, September 22 • 9:15 a.m. • CUMC Conference Room

With Sarah Lovy

As followers of Jesus Christ, how do we relate to people who hold opinions that differ from our own, especially when the subjects of interest are emotionally charged? Scott Sauls, senior Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee, offers thoughtful guidance on how to keep our eyes on Jesus as we engage others in discussions about deeply felt and potentially polarizing matters. Using stories of Jesus’ interactions with individuals, Sauls directs us to think beyond typical knee-jerk answers to current conflicts, and presents compassionate, honest, Christ-like responses to prevalent church and
cultural controversies.
