LENTEN BOOK STUDY 

Five Means of Grace

Experience God’s Love
the Wesleyan Way

Sundays 4pm
Wednesdays 5:30pm

Recharge. Reboot. Reorder. Whatever you want to call it, we need a process that helps us continuously renew our relationship with God so that we don’t drift away from our faith. Based on The Wesley Covenant for Renewal, Five Means of Grace is a six-week, video-based study that will show you how to reorder your life through prayer, searching Scripture, receiving the Lord’s Supper, fasting, and conferencing (worshiping together). You’ll learn how to recognize and affirm the outward signs, words, and actions of an invisible divine grace, deepening your relationship with God and making your faith more complete.

“Surely John Wesley wanted his teachings to be presented in clear and understandable ways. Elaine Heath’s teaching on the Five Means of Grace are simple and engaging with deep truths. Your group will love it!”

“Elaine Heath is one of the church’s great teachers and prophets. With engaging stories and clear understanding of Scripture she invites us to experience God’s love through ancient practices that we desperately need. I will be using Five Means of Grace with my congregation as an invitation for those seeking a deeper pathway into discipleship.”

“Follow Me” by Tonya Mills

 
Follow Me

At our recent Perry Church Picnic we had a Special Guest join us by the lakeshore. She started with a blank canvas, then while listening to a few of her favorite hymns she began to paint. We all watched with anticipation as our guest, Tonya Mills created – “Follow Me.” We appreciate Tonya joining us by the lakeshore to create this special gift to our Perry family and our community.

Perry Memorial United Methodist Church realizes that the future of our church and the Christian faith is not just the folks already in the pews, but those yet to be invited and welcomed into the worship of God and the fellowship of the Church. Perry Memorial is continuously working to develop the future of the Christian faith by exposing the community to the works of Jesus Christ through service and opportunities for worship. We as a congregation are firmly committed to the mission of The United Methodist Church; “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Perry Memorial United Methodist Church is here for you. We are not just a church, we are a fellowship of believers coming together to support one another, hold each other up, and work together to become the disciples that Christ has called us to be. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you!

Find a history that was written in 2007 to celebrate Perry Memorial United Methodist Church’s 50 years of spiritual growth in Shady Spring, West Virginia. These words spoken in 1964 are as true today as they were then;

“Today with humble gratitude to the Father of us all and grateful appreciation to all who in any way, have entered into our labors and brotherly love for the family of God everywhere. We are indeed proud of Perry Memorial United Methodist Church and extend to all of you a warm welcome to join our family of worshippers in any and all of our activities. We earnestly ask your prayers for our continued growth and influence to the betterment of our community.” Edna Starr, Celebration at the United Methodist Temple, Beckley WV, May 1964
