Sunday School Topic for Adults - The topic for March 22 is: The Five Marks of a Methodist. The discussion on Sunday morning will begin with The Five Marks of a Methodist:  

1.    A Methodist Loves God.  

2.    A Methodist Rejoices in God.  

3.    A Methodist Gives Thanks.  

4.    A Methodist Prays Constantly.  

5.    A Methodist Loves Others.  

Is this all there is to a Christian’s life?   

Marks one and five are the greatest commandment (Mark 12:29-30).  

What is between those two bookends that makes a Methodist?

Bring your thoughts to Fellowship Hall at 9:30 am.
