Plus One is a small group that started in January 2018. The “plus one” name signifies that each month we try to do something as a group, outside of normal church routines, whether it be a pool party, dinner out, or just getting out and about as a group.
We are largely a discussion group, not so much a teaching group – although our discussions become a great teaching and learning tool. One person regularly facilitates discussion, but at times volunteers from the class assume facilitation leadership. You can bring your Bible if you wish, but be sure to bring your willingness to engage – or, if you want, just listen and soak it in. We have a class with such wonderful discussion and diversity in age, background, and perspective. We want to be with others who follow Christ and we know that we do not have to agree on everything. Too many of us in the world are surrounding ourselves with others that think like us. Is it possible to not necessarily believe alike, but to love alike? Our group is fairly progressive in thinking and we enjoy examining the Bible and what it teaches us. We welcome everyone to our group.
Plus One started with fifteen people in attendance and usually averages 8-15 each Sunday. We enjoy following the Wesleyan traditions of small groups and we enjoy being United Methodists.
We do not have a set course of study. The group decides what it wants to study and discuss. Whether it is Women of the Bible, a church-wide study, a Lenten study, or a specific book such as Why by Adam Hamilton, or the book Enough by Adam Hamilton, where,
interestingly, the Introduction of the book is entitled, Faith In The Midst of Financial Crisis – a very timely subject for today. Please come join us. You are welcome and will be welcomed!
Meeting time and Location: 10:00 AM, Sundays in Room 132.
