NEW: A Disciple’s Path

For six weeks, between May 22 and June 28, we, as one church family, will study the beliefs and practices of our United Methodist tradition as we deepen our relationship with Christ and the church, following a disciple’s path. Each Sunday, Pastor Lisa’s sermon will challenge us to grow in God’s love and grace with the practices of discipline expressed in our membership vows. Participants who have not formally joined College Avenue, may be received as members on June 26th.
