“I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery!” (Colossians 2.2–12)
Disciples of Jesus are those who desire to live their life in the world as Jesus himself would. One of the primary ways Tarrytown United Methodist Church helps people grow as disciples is by regularly offering opportunities for small group Bible study. Regularly devoting your attention and thoughtful inquiry in the written word of scripture and in the experiences and wisdom of others pursuing a life of discipleship is one of the chief ways to equip yourself to fully and joyfully join God’s work here and now by serving our neighbors far and near.

Faithful—An Advent Study
November 27, December 4, 11
Noon – 1:15 PM
Led by J’Nevelyn Lloyd
Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season. From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join us in studying Faithful—Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph by Rev. Adam Hamilton and examine Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.
Joseph’s story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
Copies of the book available in print and digital. Register for this class online. Advance reservations are required one week prior to the class for childcare; contact Lauren Price to request childcare.
