Each year at Christmas, our church members work together to provide a living nativity for all visitors. Held each evening for 3 days before Christmas, church members dress in appropriate attire representing the Holy Family, Wisemen and Shepherds. Live animals (including sheep, goats, and a camel) are also there to complete the scene. Church members constructed the stable. Visitors are welcome to come and view the Nativity and then are invited into the church (which is fully decorated) to enjoy cookies and a beverage.

Attendees would be provided grab bags and then walk through tables of health displays; filling their grab bags with flyers and information outside the meeting room. They would then enter the gymnasium for a buffet dinner and awards program.

When God speaks, do we know how to listen? Do we know how to identify God’s plans and call for each of us? And do we make it clear to young people – both as individuals and as a congregation – that God is speaking to them? Helping youth and young adults listen for and respond to God’s call is a powerful way to cultivate energy and deep faithfulness within your congregation and form young people into disciples of Jesus. This course is for anyone who wants their church to celebrate listening to God. In this course, we’ll develop a culture in our congregations that listens for and celebrates God’s call. You’ll explore several Biblical stories of call (as well as your own), learn how to recognize God’s call – what it looks and feels like – and learn the language of call so you’re better equipped to talk about it with others. We’ll engage in powerful discussions about how God is at work in and around us. We want to emphasize: you can make a difference in your church! The problem is often not knowing where to begin. Enroll in this class and join us in active fellowship and in-depth study as we take part in God’s call to be the body of Christ together. Enroll Now!

“John and Charles Wesley and the early Methodists understood the importance of Christian community, lay leadership in ministry, small groups and mutual accountability, and supporting the work of Christian formation. Faith was increased, hope confirmed, and persons perfected in love by the system of small groups led by laypeople in the Methodist societies. Men and women learned the basic practices of Christian life and, with regular accountability and support, they grew in love.” (Revised Leader’s Guide, Becoming Accountable Disciples) Learn more about Wesley’s theology, his understanding of scripture and the “means of grace,” as well as his “operating principles” and “household rules,” as we explore what it means to be accountable members of the household of God!

Enormous confusion exists today concerning the Bible’s teaching about the future. The In God’s Time course offers an alternative to sensationalist perspectives about the future, an alternative that is at once faithful and sane, readable and scholarly. The course is based on the acclaimed book of the same title by Dr. Craig C. Hill and features video lectures as well as online discussions, weekly letters, and more. In God’s Time encourages Christians both to take seriously and to think sensibly about the hope of God’s ultimate victory. It is a relatively advanced course that will appeal most to people who have a background in biblical studies, such as completion of the first year of the DISCIPLE Bible Study course. This course will involve reading and discussion on the book In God’s Time by Craig C. Hill; participants will need a copy. 2.2 CEUs are available. Enroll Now!

This course is not just for women! The workshop is about how Christians in different cultures, different time periods, and different social locations have told their faith stories. Amy Oden, professor of the History of Christianity and Dean of Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC, presents video lectures on six Christian women who wrote about their faith, from Perpetua in 2nd Century Carthage to Georgia Harkness in the 20th Century. The workshop explores how we, as members of the Christian family, tell our “family stories.” It also helps us to examine our own faith and to articulate our own experiences of God. 1.5 CEUs are available.

This course is part of a certification in Spiritual Formation from the Institute for Discipleship (founded by Disciple Bible Study authors Richard and Julia Wilke). After defining “Spiritual Formation” from various angles and perspectives, this course will survey spiritual disciplines. There will be a special focus on the importance of a balanced theology (affirming divine initiative and human responsibility) in a healthy understanding of the spiritual disciplines. From there, we’ll discuss how these disciplines can be employed toward personal and parish renewal, and how temperaments and personalities make a difference. In the spiritual life, “one size (or template) does not fit all.” Therefore, there is a need to be attentive to the unique configuration or wiring of each soul and congregation. Finally, we’ll turn our attention to the development of a “Rule” for faithful living as well as the ways we might define “pathways” for devotion and discipline in various settings.

This course is part of a certification in Evangelism from the Institute for Discipleship (founded by Disciple Bible Study authors Richard and Julia Wilke). This is the first of four classes in the Evangelism Certification program. It is a six-week study of the biblical message of the Old and New Testaments and the relation of the Bible to teaching Evangelism. It focuses primarily on Jesus, as revealed in the Gospels, and his strategy of evangelism in which his life was oriented while he walked on the earth. The motivating vision of Jesus’ earthly behavior will be given opportunity for application to the 21st century Church. Students who complete this course successfully will be able to define “Evangelism” from a biblical perspective, interpret the eight guiding principles of Jesus’ master plan of evangelism, defend Jesus’ strategy of evangelism to the local church, and articulate the human condition and God’s response.

This course is part of a certification in Children's Ministry from the Institute for Discipleship (founded by Disciple Bible Study authors Richard and Julia Wilke). The cornerstone of an excellent children’s ministry program is a solid foundation in the Bible. It’s your job as the children’s minister to translate the teachings of the Bible into lessons a young and developing mind can understand. But how do you do that with confidence if you’re not sure you understand the Bible well, yourself? This course will examine the Bible as a book of books that was formed in a historical context and recounts historical events. The course will unpack the sections and types of books found in the Bible as well as explore the people of the Bible and the places where the Bible stories took place. We’ll also consider how the Bible should be studied and read with a particular consideration for making the Bible, its stories, and its message accessible to children.

Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that develops in each of us as we live our lives to draw closer to a full relationship with Jesus. Christians are expected to live joyfully, but sadly most don’t. Has joy eluded you in your life? Have you searched for joy, but have felt unable to capture it? The good news is that joy is within your grasp! This course helps you transform your mind to eliminate limiting beliefs and habits that separate you from experiencing the Joy already in you through Jesus Christ. In the course, we identify these limiting beliefs and habits and work to change our subconscious minds by addressing them directly. We’ll use meditation, coaching, experiential exercises and application of Scripture to develop empowering beliefs and behaviors. These practices will transform your life in both physical and spiritual ways. The course is interactive and participants learn from the experiences of others, as well as their own.

When someone around us is experiencing hurt or grief, we want to do what we can to alleviate their pain. Instead, we often unintentionally say words that add to their pain. We owe it to ourselves and those hurting to be equipped to meet their pain in the comforting manner we intend. In this course, we’ll study phrases and actions that actually do make a positive difference to those who are suffering and examine why some of our usual phrases aren’t as useful as we previously thought. There’s more than enough pain in the world; make a positive difference to the brokenhearted around you by learning the difference between helpful and hurtful caring language.

Are you grieving the death of someone who was an important part of your life? Perhaps your spouse, child, parent, or close family member? Could it be a good friend, co-worker or neighbor? The loss that death brings is painful beyond words. No one can anticipate the emotional and spiritual agony that accompanies it. Life can lose meaning. You may find your sense of self-worth diminished. The sadness and loneliness you feel may seem to consume all your energy. And as if the regular flow of grief wasn’t difficult enough, holidays and special dates can cause us acute pain that make the grief fresh all over again. Be assured: you can have a satisfying and meaningful life after loss. Even with the worst of losses, you will begin to heal. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Enroll Now!

We all lead very busy lives, but our busyness makes it even more necessary to spend daily time with God. Spending time in meditation and prayer each day has been shown to have real physical and psychological benefits, and helps center us, calm us, and call us forward as Christians. This course is designed to give us a week in meditation with God — of listening as He speaks to us, of meditating on His Word (reading it and keeping it in our hearts), of talking to Him about the concerns in our lives, of thanking Him for our many blessings, for asking for forgiveness of our sins and the sins of others, and worshiping Him. We will share several meditating techniques and resources. You’ll need a Bible, but no other books are required. Join us in this special time with God for a life-renewing experience! Enroll Now!

Everyone expects to learn when they pursue higher education, but do they expect to learn from God? God often calls at the times of transition, but college students may not recognize a call from God or even be able to articulate their questions and experiences. This online class helps you — an adult involved in campus ministry — to discern when and where God is calling, and help young people do the same. In other words, you’ll develop a campus ministry culture that nurtures and celebrates God’s call in the lives of young people and moves them closer to God. Through this class, you’ll collaborate with peers from other campus ministries on ways to help students hear and respond to God’s call. We’ll learn the language of call, explore the many kinds of call in Scripture, practice talking about call, and practice listening for call in the words of young people in our ministries. We’ll also learn how to reach out to and partner with area churches and Christian camps to form a supportive network that helps young people explore their faith before, during, and after college. God has called YOU to help nurture the faith of young people. Come connect with scripture and each other, and gain confidence in understanding your own call, equipping others to hear their own, and incorporating aspects of God’s call into any setting you’re in.

“In the beginning, God created…humans in God’s image, and gave them dominion among all the creatures of God’s creation.” What does that mean for us American Christians in 2019? Does God care how we live on the earth? Is how we treat our environment, and our fellow human and non-human inhabitants of the planet, only a political issue, or is it primarily a spiritual issue? Is it just a private lifestyle matter, or can and should our churches “go green” as well? And if so, how do we start processes of change that some might consider controversial – for ourselves and our congregations? This course expands Bishop Sally Dyck’s and Sarah Ehrman’s exploration of faith, science and the message of Jesus, providing facts, inspiration, and practical help in beginning such change. The emphasis will be on personal and congregational ways to leverage small steps to enable bigger leaps in living lightly on the earth for the sake of loving God and loving our neighbors, doing no harm, doing good, and staying in love with God.

How do you reconcile the presence of evil in the world with belief in a loving God? How should Christians relate to other religions? Does the “Christ of Faith” bear any resemblance to the “Jesus of History”? Ten Christian and Jewish theologians – world experts in their fields and persons of faith – each address a single perplexing issue. These ten issues are obstacles to faith for many both in and outside of the church.

Video presentations by the noted scholars will provide further material for discussion.

Designed for Part-Time Local Pastors and Certified Lay Ministers, but open to any person, clergy or lay, this course will cover the development of The United Methodist Church in America, as well as its doctrinal roots in both the Methodist and Evangelical United Brethren traditions.

Topics to be covered include the life and ministry of John and Charles Wesley, how the Methodist Societies in England functioned, early Methodism in America, Methodist and EUB doctrine, and mergers and splits in American Methodism. Price: $59 ***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
