How Happiness Happens
Calling our neighbors in the body of Christ is one of the surest ways to build up a church and increase its ministry! With that in mind, I want to encourage you to consider attending and inviting others to join a six-week Bible Study class this summer in July and August, beginning July 12 and ending on August 16. The class centers on “HAPPINESS.”
Max Lucado, well-known author and Christian Educator within the United Methodist Church, draws on Holy Scripture to guide us to an understanding of the origins of happiness. As Max points out, “Everyone craves it, wants it, searches for it. We all long for the state of happiness.” Jesus came to “give life with joy and abundance” (John 10:10) But how? How do we begin? Max explains that the New Testament contains more than fifty “one another” statements – practical principles for making happiness happen in our lives and the ways in which we give happiness away as Jesus did. When we follow his example, we receive happiness in return!
Max’s study entitled “How Happiness Happens” is a Bible study group in which we can learn more about generating and sharing happiness even in difficult times. You and members of your group are invited to join us for six weeks in person or on ZOOM. Study books are now available in the office. It is our “Happiness Project” for this summer! We will meet in SMOOT HALL or online at 1:30 PM on Mondays. If you have questions, please call me at (623) 974-5821 (Ext 116).
God Bless You and Hugs to ALL! ~Pastor Linda
