Dementia & the Church - New Webinar Series

Dementia & the Church - New Webinar Series

More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.  An estimated 5.8 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s and that number is climbing.  What can churches do to be more welcoming of those with dementia?  How can churches equip caregivers? Do you interested in learning more about dementia and relating better to individuals with dementia?

Small Groups Gathering!

Small Groups Gathering!

Being unable to welcome friends into our homes, visit family in care centers, or be out and about has heightened our sense of isolation these past few months. 

An essential part of becoming deeply committed Christians is our connection with others in small groups, and that is true now more than ever.  Small groups allow us to find encouragement, prayer, learning and life together.  If you are looking for an opportunity to connect with others and grow your faith, new small groups of 8 or less are now being formed.  The groups may meet digitally via Zoom OR meet in socially distanced settings.  Small group leaders are also needed.  Contact the church office at 262-5970 or email janedshipcoordinator@spencergumc.com to sign up by August 10.

If you already have a group identified, we have set up spaces at the church where you can connect with others while practicing appropriate physical distancing.  Contact the church office to reserve a space.  


The Wired Word

The Wired Word

Small group

Grace has an ongoing weekly subscription to The Wired Word.  The Wired Word lessons link two current events with relevant scripture and discussion questions.  The Wired Word group plans to meet in person on Sunday, August 2, at 10:45 AM in the Fireside Room.  In the meantime, the office would be happy to send out weekly emails to any individuals who would enjoy receiving The Wired Word. Contact the church office with your current email address at office@spencergumc.com or 262-5970 if you’d like to receive these lessons.  The Wired Word provides great thought-provoking reading for individuals and/or small groups.
