By gathering together to study and discuss or to share a meal and an activity, we learn from scripture and from each other. We grow in faith and understanding. And we have fun! We support each other and others in our efforts to live as joyful disciples of Christ.

Studies and Discussion Groups
The Forum meets weekly on Sunday mornings from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. in the Copper Chimney Lounge. There will be a variety of facilitators and studies throughout the year.
The Gospel According to Harry Potter
The Gospel According to Harry Potter, led by Julie Bills, will be offered on Thursday evenings from April 12 – May 3. We will meet in Asbury Hall, starting with dinner at 6:00 p.m. The discussion will run from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., if you prefer to attend just for the study. This is a great time for families to eat and talk together about Christian themes in the Harry Potter books and films. We will explore what to think about magic, power and love, the meaning of call, and how to deal with temptation. We will offer age-appropriate special activities for younger attenders after dinner.
Living the Questions
Living the Questions is a progressive alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what’s next for Christianity. This study, led by Pastor Bills, will meet on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Copper Chimney Lounge. The next session of Living the Questions will be held this spring. Please contact the church office (517-351- 7030) to let us know of your intent to attend so that we will have enough books available.
