Please join Cherrydale UMC to celebrate Christmas this year!


Tuesday Evening Book Study – Tuesdays, beginning November 30

Rev. Dawn-Marie will be teaching Matt Rawle’s The Heart That Grew Three Sizes: Finding Faith in the story of The Grinch. Matt Rawle is lead Pastor at Asbury United Methodist Church in Bossier City, Louisiana. He loves to tell an old story in a new way. We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this Advent study, we will explore the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Including how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? Come explore your faith this Advent, Tuesdays from 7-8:30 pm. November 30, December 7, December 14, and December 21.
