MUMC is launching a new 4 week small group book study on Wednesday mornings at 10am and Thursday at 7pm to coincide with the new sermon series “Why?” based on the the book written by Adam Hamilton. The sermon series begins April 14th so the small group studies will be a great addition.

whyWHY? Why does God allow tragedy and suffering to exist? Why are my prayers not answered? Why does God sometimes seem so distant and uninvolved? Does God have my whole life planned out for me? Do my decisions make a difference? Why should I trust God, when nothing seems to make sense?

We all wrestle with these questions. When we go through tough times—or unexpected joy—it’s natural to wonder how (or if ) God’s will is at work in our world. Even people who are deeply committed to their faith struggle to answer and re-answer these perplexing questions. This four-week study will address some of the hard-to-answer questions about our faith.

Week One: Why? “Why Do the Innocent Suffer? ”

Week Two: Why? “Why Do My Prayers Go Unanswered?”

Week Three: Why? “Why Can’t I See God’s Will for My Life?”

Week Four: Why? “Why God’s Love Prevails”
