5Qs Bible Study (Discipleship)

Mondays at 6:30 pm to 7:30 starting Jan 22, 2024 will be a discipleship small group and Bible study using the 5Qs method. “Leadership” of the meeting will rotate between members who are attending but there is only 2 things needed to lead. The first (which can/will be provided) is a cheat sheet for the 5 questions. The second is choosing a passage from the Bible to be used as the reading and study focus. You can choose this however you want, maybe it is from your personal devotions, maybe you get it from a reading plan or lectionary, or maybe it was referenced in some book you are reading.
 
Hope to see you there!
 
If you want to know more about the 5Q method, you can find it in this book, “The 5Q Method of Discipleship: 5 Questions That Will Change Your Life” by Dr. Matt Friedeman (Author)

2022 Lent

Char Wyncoop, church family member of the Plano Methodist Church has been wanting to design a labyrinth based on the stained-glass windows at the church for some time. In late February and early March, she designed the labyrinth and then painted it during March into early April until its completion. The labyrinth measures 27’ x 27’ painted on canvas for easy portability and for people to actually walk the labyrinth. The labyrinth has a detailed background, scrollwork edges, a path for people to walk, and Bible verse images. Char designed this labyrinth by taking the beauty of the stained-glass windows, sense of peace and presence as we walk into our church, and the ability to transport the labyrinth to various settings. She feels it is inspirational and will give people a sense of relaxation and focus from their busy and hurried lives, something for people to think about their own life’s path, and the meaning of beauties and difficulties along the way. Char has put in over 120 hours designing and painting this labyrinth and using over 20 various colors of paint. People are invited to explore the path of this inspirational labyrinth on most Sunday mornings before and after the 10 a.m. Worship Service. The beautiful labyrinth lies on the church floor in front of the stained-glass window which it is designed from.

Labyrinth is designed after this stained glass window depicting a dove, scrollwork, images of Bible verses, and the pattern for walking. The labyrinth was still being painted when this picture was taken.
