MUMC Women Age range: any Meets: monthly, with some occasional additional events
This new ministry at MUMC will meet year ‘round, on a monthly basis. In addition to discipleship, participants will enjoy opportunities for fellowship and service inside the church and out in the community. Next event: five-week Prayer Beads class: Mondays at 7:00 PM in Rm 203, from Feb. 20 – March 20. Protestants use prayer beads, too! This study’s author felt a deep calling to help others find new ways to communicate with God, through prayer. Through the use of prayer beads, we engage our God-given senses of touch and sight to coax prayer from the head deep into the heart. During the five sessions, participants will make their own prayer beads and learn how to use them as a tool in prayer life. Bead kit cost: $5. RSVP by Feb. 16.
