Every Tuesday, UMC of Westport and Weston is encouraging our congregation to support local restaurants by getting their dinner with curbside take-out or delivery. We are featuring a different restaurant each week. Let them know we’re supporting them; tell them you’re with their friends from the United Methodist Church. And of course, please support all the local restaurants in our community throughout the week when you elect to “take out.”
If you’d like to be added to the church’s email list and receive information about Take-Out Tuesdays, please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
Ladies' Book Group
Ladies Book Group Continues to meet via Zoom – 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. This Wednesday we’ll be discussing chapters 6 – 11 of “What Is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything.” Rob Bell, Jr. takes us deep into actual passages to reveal the humanity behind the Scriptures. You cannot get to the holy without going through the human, Rob tells us. When considering a passage, we shouldn’t ask “Why did God say…?” To get to the heart of the Bible’s meaning, we should be asking: “What’s the story that’s unfolding here and why did people find it important to tell it? What was happening in the world at that time? What does this passage/story/poem/verse/book tell us about how people understood who they were and who God was at that time?” Rob addresses the concerns of all those who see the Bible as God’s Word but are troubled by the ethical dilemmas, errors, and inconsistencies in Scripture. With What Is the Bible?, he recaptures the Good Book’s magic and reaffirms its power and inspiration to shape and inspire our lives today. Please join us for wonderful fellowship – everyone is welcome – not just ladies!
