  • The Art of Awkward Conversation
    The Art of Awkward Conversation

    Awkward conversations. We’ve all had them, and most of us cringe just thinking about them. Whether it's politics or family or social media, conversations can go south quickly. Thankfully, the Bible has something to say about this. Jesus found himself in quite a few awkward conversations, so we can learn how to navigate them with grace and humility by studying Jesus' tactics.

    In our current sociopolitical climate, it's obvious that we need to learn to talk to each other again. This six-session small group curriculum is designed to help you talk about awkward conversations - how to have them, how to move past them, and what God can teach us about grace in the midst of them. So, come on, let's talk.

  • The Climb Discipleship Pathway
    The Climb Discipleship Pathway

    Not everyone’s route toward growth will look the same. Your path will look different from others because your life experiences have brought you to your unique position. That doesn’t mean we can’t climb together, and it doesn’t mean we won’t have check points and opportunities for growth along the way. That’s what the Discipleship Pathway provides - basic check points that aid you in charting your own growth. Our prayer is that you utilize the Discipleship Pathway as a tool in your faith climb, and that you will encounter God in new and exciting ways as you reach new heights of love for God and others.

    This is the Discipleship Pathway for Tonganoxie United Methodist Church in Tonganoxie, KS.

    500 years ago Martin Luther changed history forever. His hammer, nail and list of 95 beliefs so rocked the most powerful empire of his day that he was tried, convicted and excommunicated from the only life he’d ever known.
                                                             
    What did he believe that was so explosive? What did he assert that would cause the government to deem it a crime for anyone to offer him food or shelter? How did Martin Luther ultimately reform the Christian faith and change the world?
     
    This 3-week sermon series investigates one of the most pivotal figures in human history and the Reformation he began.  You will find here the weekly sermons, promo video and Grow, Pray and Study Guide for the series. Churches may use these sermons in adult Sunday School and Bible studies to learn about the Reformation as we mark the 500 year anniversary in October 2017.
    • Week 1 Sermon - A film crew has captured video from historic sites in Rome as Pastor Adam tells the story of Martin Luther and the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation.
    • Week 2 Sermon: Filmed on location in Germany, this sermon takes you to Erfurt where Luther went to school, took his vows of priesthood and was ordained; to Wittenberg to visit his home and the church where he preached more than 2,000 sermons; to Wartburg Castle where he translated the New Testament into German; and back to Wittenberg where he composed A Mighty Fortress is Our God and was laid to rest. The film crew was given rare access to Luther’s room at Wartburg and his cell at the monastery in Erfurt.
    • Week 3 Sermon: Reformation comes home. Preached at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, this sermon focuses on the perpetual need – in the Church and in our own spiritual lives – for reform.  Acknowledging that we always “see through a glass dimly,” as the Apostle Paul notes in 1 Corinthians 13, this series concludes with an exploration of tendencies we all face and tensions that develop within the church which often lead us to stray and even to divide.
