“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.
We endeavor to make childcare available for all classes. Advance reservations are required one week prior to the class. Please contact Lauren Price to make a reservation.
Women at the Well Bible Study:
January 22 – March 26
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Led by Allison Angell
Ignorance is bliss―except in self-awareness. What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships―and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you’re stuck in the same ruts?
The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In their book “The Road Back to You,” Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach―a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people’s eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do.
Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help take you further along into who you really are―leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become. Participants will need to purchase their own book.
