Sundays During Lent–The Third Day: Living the Resurrection by Tom Berlin
This Lenten Season on Sunday mornings during worship, join Rev. Mary Beth and the worship team as they guide you through meditations and conversations on Tom Berlin’s Lenten study. Amplify Media shares, “Tom Berlin uses his gifts of storytelling and understanding the Scriptures to connect the readers to the experiences of several individuals around Jesus in his final days, focusing on new life and redemption rather than loss.” This study will happen during worship with the use of video and small group conversation.

We also have a Christian Library located on the west end of the sanctuary.  Many great books by local and national authors. Come check it out!


Ukulele, Community and Connection

    It Is Happening….

Jeelee Unsoy came up with a great idea this past May to start a Ukulele group. She has followed through and we had a Meet & Greet session with our instructor Stan Plant. Stan lives in Franktown and has been teaching lessons on just about any stringed instrument for many years. Stan is a fun loving, patient guy that you will all enjoy.  He has agreed to conduct an hour long ukulele group lesson for our group once a month for $50 a session. This would mean $5 for each participant. We meet every Thursday at 11:00 am at Elizabeth United Methodist Church.  Stan will join us once a month for new 'techniques'. We are all looking forward to making community connections and music (or just noise initially) together!!! Anyone is welcome! NO previous experience is needed. Join any time!! If you have a friend that is interested bring them along. See you there! For more information email: marcia@elizabethunitedmethodists.org.
