Let’s Grow Together

Dear Friends:

Have you been wondering what God has in store for your life? Have you been sensing a need to explore some new ground? Would you like to see your faith move forward with fresh momentum?

If you are like me, you are saying yes, yes, and yes to those questions. In return, God is saying, let me show you the way!

I believe a part of the “way” is through relationships with fellow believers and seekers. A part of the way is unfolded for us through time spent together in mission, service, study, and prayer.

This Connections booklet will provide you with opportunities that are designed to provide the kind of Christian growth you have been desiring. I want to encourage you to take a close look at the variety of groups, classes, and gatherings that will provide a positive focus for your journey of faith.

Find something that fits for you, gather more information, and then sign up for a fresh experience of faith development. You will be glad you did!

Yours in Christ,

Randy Jessen


Welcoming through our Connections!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Each fall we begin anew the seasons in the Parker United Methodist Church family and our own personal faith journeys. As a part of this journey we offer you the Connections catalog for your reference now and throughout the upcoming Church year. This catalog shows many opportunities in areas of fellowship, worship, discipleship, missions and evangelism areas to help move us forward in the direction that God has planned for our lives.

Our Church Mission is Welcoming all to discover and share the joy of Jesus’ love. A great way to feel this Mission in our hearts is to become a part of these Adult Education & Small Group activities. Then invite others from your church, neighborhood, work or family circles to join you! After all, God placed us here on earth for a purpose, and becoming connected to those around us helps to fulfill that purpose.

Won’t you take a look through this fall’s Connections catalog and find a new group or activity that you can commit to and use for your journey? Whether it be Bible study, service, issues in Christian living, support or expanding our life skills, the PUMC Connections catalog has something to offer every interest. And if you have an interest you don’t see, let one of the AE & SG Ministries Team members on the back cover know, and we will help to provide that topic or interest.

We welcome all to discover…Connections. We welcome all to discover and share the joy of Jesus’ love. They work together to fulfill our part of the church mission. We prayerfully hope you will consider your welcoming, discovering and connecting this fall and throughout the church year.

With Christ’s Blessings,

Adult Education & Small Group Ministries Team
