Tuesday Evening Bible Study is a group of 10 -16 men and women that have been meeting weekly for several years to study a variety of scriptural programs.  The group has chosen various studies and for the last year or so has been studying programs from Kerygma. The programs have been very diverse and have included, Exodus - Gateway to the Bible, Into the World - The Acts of the Apostles, Parables - Stories for Life in God's World, The Light Will Shine - A Study for Advent.

A 14 week study “Beginnings: A Study of the Call of God in Genesis. begins Tuesday September 12, 2017.  The group meets from 7:00 - 8:30 in the Hathorne Room.  If you are interested in participating in this small group study contact the Church office or Kurt Kuhn or call or text 410-279-0340.  There is a resource guide that is required for the course which costs $20. 

“Beginnings: A Study of the Call of God in Genesis.” One of the Kerygma Program studies, it is based on Walter Brueggemann's commentary on Genesis. Beginnings takes a fresh look at some familiar Bible stories. The discussions on creation and creationism, the rebellion of humankind and the Flood bring new perspectives on today's issues. The experiences of Abraham, Esau, Jacob and Joseph speak to Christians seeking to live responsibly in our world. It is a 14 week study which will cover: Creation, the Flood, God’s Promises to Abraham, the conflict between Jacob and Esau, and the story of Joseph.


Asbury’s Book Discussion Group has chosen 6 selections for 2017.  The meeting dates and selections are described HERE.  The group is open to newcomers and meets in the Fisherman classroom at 7:30 pm on the dates noted.  In December, the group has a dinner meeting at a member’s house and they select the books for the next year at that meeting.


United Methodist Women meet on a monthly basis in members’ homes at 7:30 p.m. the second Monday of the month.  

The group supports their mission commitment through pledging and fundraising.  The UMW Flea Market and Bake Sale, held in March of 2016, raised over $3,800 for mission projects.
