Journey Through the Old Testament
Mondays, 6:30 pm | Sept 14
Join our Bible study, as we journey through the books of the Old Testament. We pay special attention to the characters we used to study as children in Sunday School, the role of women, and unusual little facts that help us gain insights into our sacred text. We read manageable chunks of the Bible, learn a bit of Old Testament history along the way, and follow up with questions and discussion of the readings. Join us for a single session, when you can, or every time, as we laugh, share, question, and grow our spiritual understandings. Leader: Pastor Tanya Pile, firstname.lastname@example.org.

John Wesley’s Way: Ten Elements of Christian Discipleship
Tuesdays, 7:00 pm | Sept 22
As a pastor, I was often asked, “Do you have a book on Methodism?” Of course, I had many, but I never found one which answered what I thought they were usually asking. They were looking for a way to identify and understand the essential principles which shape us as a church.
Join Pastor Tom, Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm via Zoom, to explore how to live as followers of Christ using John Wesley’s Methodist way. We will explore our place as the Body of Christ, how to practice the Christian faith, and examine three clear but challenging rules we live by. Then, we will discern how we as Christians understand God’s will for our lives and the world. For ten weeks we will explore one element per session, the Scripture(s) behind it, and how this principle is lived out each day, in 60-75 minute sessions. There will be some reading but they will be relatively brief selections from the Bible or John Wesley’s writings.

Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again
Wednesdays. 6:30 pm | Sept 23
Join Pastor Tanya for eight weeks of fun and fellowship with Rachel Held Evans’ book, Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again. We will start with a new chapter each week, and the sky is the limit on the where we end up. Together we will take a look at the stories and the characters of the Bible that have fascinated us for thousands of years. We will engage these stories that continue to speak to us with layers of meaning. If you want to know what the Bible’s “inspired Word of God” means for us today, come and join the discussion. Pop in for a session or two, or stay with us all eight weeks. You can buy the book on Amazon.

Reopening Team Update
Hello MUMC family. The Fabulous Reopening Team wanted to give you a quick update that we have been approved by the District Superintendent, Mark Galang, to move to Phase 2. Phase 2 really doesn't give us a lot with Washington State rolling things backwards, but it does allow us to Live Stream worship from the Sanctuary with up to 10 people and have staff meetings in person up to 5 people. We have provided a copy of the Phase 2 chart and Narrative so that you can be informed as we move slowly to reopening.
We continue to navigate this pandemic and what it means to be in community together from a distance.

Kids Club Registration
As we all prepare for another season of distance learning to begin this school year, I would like to get updated Kids Club Info on all our children. The Family Ministry Team would love to keep in contact with your kids/grandkids this school year until we can meet in person again. We miss them all terribly.
We would also like to know all their grades and birth dates so we can celebrate them appropriately.
