Twin Falls Methodists announce new programs
New programs have been added to the regular schedule at First United Methodist Church, 360 Shoshone Street East, Twin Falls.
Each Sunday at 8:30 a.m., the Reverend Mike Holloman will hold a discussion of that day’s scripture.
At 9:30 am, Holloman will preside over worship as he continues his sermon series on Moses, drawing a correlation between the problems of ancient times and the problems of today. The chancel choir has returned from its summer hiatus and will present special music at the worship service.
Ron Jones and Scott Lindquist will lead an adult Sunday School class at 10:45 am in the church library. A video of the renowned Adam Hamilton preaching will be shown, followed by class discussion. People do not need to attend every class and there is no book to buy. The first series is called “Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope.” The class will explore the most common worries and fears experienced by Americans today, consider practical steps for overcoming these fears, and reflect upon fear in the light of scripture and a faith that promises again and again that we do’t need to live in fear. Let’s lived with courage and hope!
“Simple Church” is lead by Pastor Holloman at 6 p.m. every Sunday in the Weslyan Chapel on the third floor of the church building.
A Bible study on “Galations: the Gospel of Grace” meets at 2 p.m. in the Friendship Room of the church and is led by Pastor Elaine Steele. Everyone is welcome.

“The Hope At the Heart of Our Faith”
This Sunday, Rev. Elizabeth Greene will approach the difficult topic of race, in our society and in the Unitarian Universalist Association. She will reflect on how the issue has developed over time, and how it seems currently.
Rev. Greene will also bring perspective and hopefully some optimism to the situation most of us find ourselves in: mostly white folks in a mostly white area, concerned about justice, equity and compassion.
As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world.
Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available.
Please join us Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls at 10:30 AM.
The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West.
