Led by Dr. Mike Marshall
Come join Dr. Mike Marshall and others in our church community for a summer of “musing!” Every Monday afternoon we will “engage in thoughtful reflection” as we join together for study and community-building. We will utilize a series of books in engaging categories such as United Methodist beliefs, practices, and compassionate caring. Our first book will be “This We Believe” by William Willimon, and at least one more book for the summer will be selected by the group.
