Announcing a new Pastor’s Study beginning January 7, 2018







We are going to begin by reading The Story by Randy Frazee, watching the companion DVD, and discussing the weekly questions in a participant guide.  

The group will meet on Sunday and Wednesday with the same material covered both days.  This will enable you to choose which day of the week will work best for you and your schedule. 

Each succeeding week we will offer the next lesson on Sunday and repeating on Wednesday and so forth through the end of the study. 

You will need two items to participate – a copy of the The Story and a copy of the participants guide.  We can order them as a group through Christianbooks.com or you are welcome to obtain them on your own. If you are interested in participating, please respond to Jessica Gattorna in the church office at jessicag@stjohnsumc.org regarding attendance and if you would like for her to include you in a group order of class materials. The cost is $15 for  the book and participant’s guide.

Read Chapter 1 of The Story before the first class meeting!

I am excited and looking forward to this opportunity to share in God’s transformative story and how it can and will shape our lives.  All are welcome, so come and let’s join together for this journey!
