ADULT STUDY

"We Make the Road by Walking" by Brian McLaren

Why are we here? What’s wrong with the world? What is our role, our task, our purpose?  What is a good life? Is there meaning and hope? What dangers should we guard against?  What treasures should we seek? Our ancient ancestors answered these questions through their stories. Over the course of 14 weeks we will explore those stories together.

World Communion Sunday

October 3, 2021

Around the globe, countless gifted and qualified people face financial obstacles that hinder them from preparing for the vocation God has given them, especially youth and young adults. For ethnic students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college, or for those people of color who haven’t historically had access to resources that make higher education possible, the road toward education has often been unwieldy.


What would it look like if the church today imitated Jesus’ affirmation of the full dignity and God-given potential of all women and men—especially those who’ve historically been assigned to the world’s margins? On World Communion Sunday your giving helps to provide scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.


Join us .... on World Communion Sunday - online in Home Worship or in-person at Oceanview Church.

Virtual Book Discussion Group

Our Discussion Book: 

"One Dress. One Year."

by Hyeonseo Lee


One girl. One dress. One year. For freedom.


When sixteen-year-old Bethany Winz learned about the millions of men, women, and children around the world trapped in slavery, her stomach churned. How can anyone do that to another human being? she wondered. And why aren't we doing something?


This is the story of Bethany's "something."

It's Time to READ: Join our Virtual Book Discussion Group, sponsored by United Methodist Women, where Alice Naegele, DJ Olson, Kim Wendt and Jeannette Hatzenbuhler continue their most interesting discussions on books, on missions and on life. You are invited to join the conversation...


About the Book

How can one girl change the world? It all began with a heart for justice and a little black dress. In 2012, sixteen-year-old Bethany Winz decided to make a difference. To raise awareness, she determined to


- wear the same black dress every day for a year to bring attention to the lack of choices slaves have

- come up with new ways to accessorize the dress each day

- use her blog and pictures of her outfits to raise money for agencies helping those who were being trafficked


Her yearlong journey was one of hope, discipline, and sometimes disappointment. She celebrated some successes yet despaired at the depth of the problem. As she found her identity tied to the things she did, Bethany discovered that while she stood for freedom for others, she also struggled to find her own freedom in believing that she was loved just as she was. This moving book shows readers that their voices matter, they can make a difference, and sometimes the smallest gestures have lasting impact.


About the Author

Bethany Winz is studying social justice at Trevecca Nazarene University where she's learning to love Nashville and urban farming. She already loves Jesus, hot tea, good books, and bacon. She processes the world by writing and blogs about the adventure of growing up and what she's learning about justice at www.bethanywinz.com. She grew up in Orlando, Florida, with her parents and her brother.

November 2021 Events

All Saints Sunday November 7, 2021

Historically, the Church has confessed a belief in the "communion of the saints," which includes not only all living believers, but also all who have gone before us. When we celebrate Holy Communion, we experience the communion of saints, feasting with believers past, present and future. The author of Hebrews 12 reminds us that these saints, a “great cloud of witnesses,” surrounds us and cheers us on.


On All Saints Day, United Methodists publicly remember and honor those who have passed away. Celebrated on the first Sunday in November, many congregations light candles, ring bells of remembrance, and call the names of those lost in the previous year as a way of honoring the impact their lives have had on us. 


Join us Sunday, November 7th, as we remember and honor our saints - online at Home Worship or in-person in the Sanctuary at Oceanview UM Church.
