The serious study of God’s work with others help draw us into a closer relationship with God. Palmyra First Church wants to help you develop that personal relationship with the Lord. This is why we sponsor several opportunities to study a part of a small group. Below are some of your options:
On Sunday mornings we offer an adult study group. It meets in Fellowship Hall at 10:30 AM to discuss the news events of the day from a Christians perspective. Lee Smedley serves as the facilitator using material called “The Wired Word.” The material is based on the news of the week. The lesson is published on the Thursday for use on Sunday, so the topics are about recent events. To see the materials and be ready for the discussion, contact Lee at email@example.com and he will add you to his distribution list.
The Blessed Misfits, one of our midweek groups, meets each Wednesday at 6:30 PM in the South Wing and via Zoom for those who prefer remote learning or for other reasons are unable to be in person. The topics rotate between various books of interest to the group. The group is currently reading and putting into practice a book called “Conspiracy of Kindness.” This is an active group and has decided to participate in our own Conspiracy of Kindness by going to 2 of our local laundromats to offer a practical expression of Christian love by covering the cost of the washers and driers.
The Misfits will be selecting a new book sometime in January. Each book normally last between 4 and 10 weeks with most being in the 6-to-8-week range. For more information about the Blessed Misfits, watch the weekly bulletins or simply contact Pastor Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Heidi in the church office at 717-838-2551.
There is also a Tuesday study group. Our Woman’s Study Group that meets via Zoom. The contact person for this group is Eileen Fox who can be contacted at email@example.com.
If you would like to be a part of a small group study, but the current topics or times do not work for you, consider creating a new group. Pastor Jim will be happy to assist in getting the group started.
