The Thursday Men’s Evening Study Group reconvenes February 8th, 2018.
The New Year is a great time to set aside some time for “intentional spiritual development.” We are starting a new book for a 5-session study beginning Thursday, February 8th.
The book, “If the church were Christian: Rediscovering the values of Jesus,” by Philip Gulley (a Quaker minister) is a readily accessible, thought-provoking presentation of how focusing on the positive aspects of Jesus’ values can help one to discover their own spiritual path. The book (and e-book) are available and can be previewed at smile.amazon.com.
The men’s evening study group meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 7pm – 8pm in the Wesley Lounge.

Care-A-Vaners is a California-Nevada United Methodist Conference RV mission team that usually travels within our Conference to work on Methodist Churches and Church properties. We usually work for one week from 8am until 5pm Monday through Friday. We often stay on the property where we are working, so need to be self contained. We bring our own tools, but the churches provide the materials. We cook our own meals, even though some churches do provide snacks and/or a pot luck meal. For more information, contact CareaVaners@campbellunited.org
NOMADS is a National United Methodist RV based mission organization. NOMAD members work at disaster recovery sites, and on Methodist Church properties in 49 of the 50 states — at this time Hawaii is excluded.
