FUMC’s Christian Progressives Book Group gathers once a month to discuss a book by one of the leading Progressive theologians at work today. Christian Progressivism occurs along a spectrum from liberal to moderate, and our book selections touch on all parts of the spectrum in an effort to create engaging conversation and strengthen our faith as individuals. If you’re already a Progressive or simply want to know more about what that means, we are a friendly, informal group and would love to welcome you.

We have found that to build real and authentic relationships with others it takes more than just seeing each other for an hour on Sunday morning, it involves “doing life” together. The first step is getting to know each other more, and getting to know what it means to be in an authentic community. We launch new Connect Groups 3-4 times a year, which meet for 8 weeks to go through a study by Andy Stanley called, Community. After the groups finish building community within their group, they have the option to continue meeting as a group. If you have questions about Connect Groups or our other small groups, or would like to sign up to be in a connect group, please contact Jill Haire at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-395-1244 ext. 123.
