Adult Education Bible Study

Beginning on September 16, Dr. Osvaldo Vena will continue the study of the Gospel of Mark which began last spring. Osvaldo is a professor of New Testament at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary, and author of Jesus, Disciple of the Kingdom: Mark's Christology for a Community in Crisis as well as a member of our congregation. Osvaldo has described Jesus as "the disciple par excellence of the kingdom of God, a model for our daily, contemporary journey as God's people." The class, which meets in Room 213 at 9:15am each Sunday, is invited to explore the meaning and context of passages that constantly yield surprises even though they seem so well known to us.

New participants are always welcome.

Adult Education Book Study

Join us for learning and spiritual growth as Rev. Howard Milkman, retired pastor and trained counselor, leads a four-session study of A Crazy, Holy  Grace: The Healing Power of Pain and Memory by the American writer and theologian, Frederick Buechner, beginning Sunday, September 16. This book, which was published last year, is a collection of essays on how God is present with "a grace that wells up out of the lostness and pain of the world and of our own inner worlds." Of Buechner's writing, John Ortberg wrote, "“He isn’t trying to persuade – he’s trying to understand what he himself believes and thinks. And that honesty is more persuasive than the most polished argument.”

The series will be held on Sundays at 11 a.m in Room 213. The book and participation guide are available in the church office and available at the first study session.

Hearing Loop System Available on the Main Floor of the Sanctuary

DGFUMC is pleased to provide the Hearing Loop System for use on the main floor of the Sanctuary.

A hearing loop is a wire that circles a room and is connected to a sound system. The loop transmits the sound electromagnetically. The electromagnetic signal is then picked up by the t-coil in a hearing aid or cochlear implant.

Users with a t-coil in their hearing aid can now listen to the service directly through their hearing aids. Please check with your hearing care professional to see if your hearing aid is equipped with a t-coil and properly adjusted. Non-hearing aid users can pick-up a headset to use at the sound board.

To learn more about the Hearing Loop System, please see the flyer below..
