Have you ever asked yourself, “How am I wired to think, feel, serve, and respond”? “What do I have to offer to God and to the Church”? “Am I ever going to good enough for God”? If you have, then join in the chorus of countless others.
First Corinthians 12:12–31 continues Paul’s teaching on the spiritual gifts as they cooperate to empower God’s will for the church. The Christian church is like a human body. It is one individual organism made up of many different parts that serve a wide variety of functions. All those functions matter. Nobody should decide they don’t like their gift or their role in the church and try to quit. The body needs each member to do its part in order to work properly. We must respect and value each other for the vital roles we serve in the church.
Spiritual Gifts Discovery will be a journey into the divine DNA of your heart, mind and soul. During these few weeks, you are invited to discover and rediscover how God fearfully and wonderfully created each of us. Come and join us on a journey to answer those tearful questions that so many of us have asked before, Who Am I?
This class is available both IN-PERSON AND VIA ZOOM.

Join us in the back of the sanctuary with your family, or drop the children/youth off and enjoy service on your own! We will do a mini project/message each week during the pastor’s sermon.
This fall, we will focus on the book by Adam Hamilton titled “The Walk”, and this intergenerational study will include a sermon for adults, while children are taught the same sermon in a kid friendly way.
All are welcome to join the discussion to apply their United Methodist beliefs to current faith issues and world events. A host of facilitators welcome and encourage healthy and open discussions facilitated by a team of individuals from Central family.
Need a little recharge on Sunday morning while the kids play nearby?
Join other parents in the lower level Youth Room for an informal time of coffee and conversation. There is space in the room for young children to play under parent supervision. Older children may enjoy self-directed quiet activities nearby in the fellowship hall under parent supervision.

For the past seven years, Central’s Sunday Morning Pilgrimage discussion group, (that includes listening, reading, sharing, and interaction), has been meeting on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. – the hour between the Well Service and the Traditional Service. According to group leader, Kathy Mead, “It’s a very open ‘drop-in’ group that encourages attendees to be more intentional on our life-path journeys, and more appreciative of our world.” The group’s discussions are usually based on book content. However, reading isn’t mandatory and participants can find meaning by listening, sharing thoughts and life experiences.
Books and their authors vary and often include new Christian thinkers. Attendees are encouraged to explore new ideas and seek understanding in ways that are relevant to them. Conversations are confidential and the group meets in person in the Zoom Room at Central, and also has a Zoom option to allow access for those at home or out of town.
During June, July and August, the group becomes the Summer Book Study and meets outdoors on Wednesdays. Most often, a single book is chosen for the summer months. The group meets at a nearby park, porch, or pavilion where sharing feelings and contemplative thoughts have strengthened relationships with God and with other attendees.
Kathy Mead has attended Central for 12 years and has been leading the Sunday Morning Pilgrimage group since its inception. She’s a retired educator and taught history at Traverse City West High School.
Stop by the Zoom Room any Sunday at 10:00 a.m. or for more information contact Kathy Mead at: firstname.lastname@example.org
