ADULT LENTEN STUDIES:

Five Means of Grace: Experience God’s Love the Wesleyan Way
by Elaine Heath

This six-week study is designed to help disciples discover the power of the five means of grace. John Wesley called these means of grace “instituted,” meaning the spiritual practices Jesus himself participated in and encouraged his followers to do. For Wesley, these spiritual practices are seamlessly integrated with the practice of loving our neighbors well. A life of genuine prayer inevitably leads to a life of hospitality, mercy, and justice. Participants in this study will consider how the five means of grace are the ordinary channels that God uses to draw us into a fruitful relationship. Weekly studies will focus on: Prayer, Searching the Scriptures, the Lord’s Supper, Fasting, and Christian Conferencing. Cost of book: $10 

Monday Afternoons, 12:05-1:15 pm. Class began February 22nd, but drop-in participation is welcome week-to-week during Lent. Facilitated by Dr. Darren M. McClellan, outdoor courtyard (Morphy side of building.) This will be the “Grace and Grub Group.” Bring your own brown bag lunch. No registration required—come as you will!

fm3 - Fairhope Methodist Men's Ministry

This ministry by and for the men of our church and community is intended to provide an opportunity for the men of Fairhope United Methodist Church to get "tuned-in" to what God has intended for our lives with regards to serving Him through our family, our church and our community. The mission of fm3 is to: equip, enable, and encourage men to hear God's calling to be spiritual leaders in the home, at church and in our community.

This ministry is multi-faceted with emphasis on providing opportunities for men to "get connected" with other men, to provide stimulus and accountability as we all grow in our walk of faith. The men of fm3 host a monthly breakfast with guest speakers generally on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 am. In addition to the breakfast meetings we encourage our men to join a small group Bible Study or an accountability group. If you would like to get involved contact Jack Burrell by email: .
