2009 Disciple Closing

Mark this date on your calendar and plan to attend the Disciple Closing Ceremony and Celebration on May 21, 2009. A communion worship service will be led by Dr. James Howell and Rev. Barbara Barden in the Sanctuary at 6:30 p.m., followed by a reception with hors d'oervres in Jubilee Hall.

Invitations to all 2008-09 graduates will be sent out in the next few weeks, but plan now to invite your family and friends to celebrate with you. Especially consider inviting that friend or relative you are praying will participate in Disciple next year, this is a great time for them to see the impact a good bible study has in a church like Myers Park United Methodist.

Large Print Bibles

When an email came in recently seeking large print bibles for men in need at Uptown Shelter, DISCIPLE Bible Study classes donated funds to provide 33 NIV Bibles for homeless men who have requested them. DISCIPLE students prove again that they love to learn and love to share that love for learning.

Thank you to all who contributed to this effort - thank you for answering the call!
