“Bearers of Truth”


One of the key arguments for the truth of the Gospel is the witness of the disciples of Jesus. All of them experienced persecution with many of them dying for their faith. Yet they contended for what “they had seen and heard” despite the opposition that they faced. They considered themselves to be bearers of truth, and they were convinced that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ was a message of truth worth proclaiming. 

When Paul writes to Timothy in our passage for this Sunday, “Make an effort to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker, who doesn’t need to be ashamed but is one who interprets the message of truth correctly” (2 Timothy 2:15 CEB), he is reminding Timothy that the message he has received is true and it comes with a calling to proclaim it without shame. What a powerful message for us for us to consider our own discipleship. If we know the truth, then we ought to proclaim it without shame! As we conclude our series on “Walking in the Way” of Jesus, we will wrestle with how God might be leading us as individuals and as a congregation to live as bearers of the truth.

· Missions Project Collection – Our congregation will be a part of a joint Charge Conference meeting with twenty-three other churches at First United Methodist Church of Warner Robins at 4pm on Sunday, November 3, 2019. As part of this corporate gathering we have the opportunity to be a part of a joint mission project. Our congregation has been tasked with donating 50 bottles of liquid laundry detergent (32 or 64 oz only) and 50 bottles of non-aerosol spray pump insect repellent (6 oz to 14 oz), and these items will be used to help assemble cleaning kits that are used in disaster relief situations. If you would like to donate to this cause please drop the items by the church office by Sunday, October 27th.

· Sonny Mayer Memorial Project – This past Wednesday our Church Council approved a “Sonny Mayer Memorial Project”, which will complete an emphasis on safety and security for the church. Sonny served as our Trustees chairperson for multiple terms, and one of his last projects as Trustees chair was overseeing the installation of a fire alarm system with a burglar component. We held off on activating the burglar component until we could afford to have the building rekeyed, and we wanted to make sure it was done right (Sonny was big on making sure things were done right!). We are now ready to move ahead with finishing the system, re-keying the building, providing keypad access at a few strategic entrances, and also adding a security door to limit access to our children’s wing when kids are onsite. All of this can be accomplished for a few thousand dollars, so we are seeking memorial donations in loving memory of Sonny to help make this possible. Any and all gifts will be appreciated as we seek to finish this wish of Sonny’s to make our church more secure, and also honor his memory and faithful service to our church.

Sunday School Programs


Issues & Answers

Take a summertime excursion with the Issues & Answers class, meeting Sundays June 23rd-July 21st at 9:30, in their introduction to the Wesleyan Class Meeting format led by our Associate Pastor Kevin & Laurie Clotfelter. This is an opportunity to form small fellowships called Life Groups within our church vision to “connect” with each other. The Life Group concept is based upon the meeting format utilized early in the church renewal movement we now know as Methodism. Contact Don Hall or Kevin if you have interest or questions. 
We meet on second room on the left as you enter Church's Administrative Wing


New Beginnings

We know better. We should be able to do the right thing. But often, we go against our better judgment and give in. The Corinthian Christians were no different. They had listened to one false teaching after another—and they had believed what they heard. How many lies had they accepted? How many mistakes had they made? Their list of sins is long and ugly, much like ours. But Paul had patience with the Corinthians. He was disturbed but not despondent; angry but not desperate. His driving passion for them was love, and he saw hope for them. His letter confronts them and shows them how to lead a pure life. His letter to the Corinthians encourages all of us who need a spiritual check-up.The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. 
We meet in the first classroom on the left when you enter the Church's Administrative Wing.


Pilgrim Class

The Pilgrim Class continues the Wondering through the Bible.  This is an in depth study done with humor and light refreshments. We have breakfast every 5th Sunday.  Everyone is welcome and there is no age requirement. 

We meet down the hall from Fellowship Hall.



"The Real Heaven--What the Bible Actually Says... What comes to your mind when you think about Heaven? Clouds? Harps? Angels? Singing? Now, honestly, does that really sound like a great way to spend eternity? The good news is, that is NOT what Heaven is like. And when you discover what really awaits you there, it will radically change your view of your future and of Heaven. In this 3 part series from Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we'll do there, what we'll experience and how we're to prepare for eternity today. Join the Seekers SS Class as we discover the amazing truth of what awaits us all in Heaven"

We meet in the classroom closest to Fellowship Hall


Christian Heritage/Wesley Fellowship

Don Schall and Luis Morales co-teach this class, which alternates studying and discussing writings from contemporary authors such as Adam Hamilton, Max Lucado, Robert Jeffers, David Jeremiah, and UMC Adult Bible Studies.  


Do you want to discover the answer to life's most fundamental question: What on earth am I here for?  Join us as we embark on a journey to find out, using Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life.  This study will help us understand why we are alive in God’s amazing plan for each one of us—both here and now, and for eternity.  Knowing God’s purpose for creating us help reduce stress, focus energy, simplify decisions, give meaning to life, and most importantly, prepares us for eternity...books available.

Joins in the Old Narthex from 9:15-10:15am; conveniently set between the two services and just down the hall from the sanctuary.  You will be glad you did.
