Grief Share
For those who have recently lost a loved one, it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now, and you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

That’s the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

Each one of GriefShare’s 13 sessions includes a DvD Session and Discussion of people who have experienced losses like yours, as well as small group discussion about what you’ve seen on the video. You are welcome to begin attending the group at any session. Each session is “self-contained” so you don’t have to attend in sequence.

If you are interested, please contact Connie Elzey.

Disciple Bible Study

Disciple Bible Study is an intensive course that emphasizes discipline reading of and listening to the scripture.  It results in biblically nourished persons committed to life as disciples.  Disciple began in The United Methodist Church in 1987.  Myers Memorial UMC graduated its first class of Disciple students in 1993. In May 2017, we celebrated two more classes of Disciple graduates and look forward to more classes beginning in the fall.  If you are interested in participating in a Disciple Class, please contact Connie Elzey.

Sunday School is expanding! A new adult class is being formed and will meet on the first floor in room E04.  Louisa Suggs and Chris McCullen will be taking the lead as this group becomes established.  The class will be based on current events yet steeped in the Bible.  News is inevitable – whether it be good or bad, but what better way to extract hope from this is to juxtapose Scriptures as tools to persevere and navigate our daily walk in Christian Faith. Interested in trying it out?  Contact Louisa Suggs (louisa.suggs@gmail.com) or Chris McCullen (ccmcullen@gmail.com) or show up on Sundays!
