A-MAZing Creation

4 Part Study: Native Plants & More
 
 
 
When God created the world, what did he place at what is now 6100 Berkman Drive? Come with us as we explore the natural world right at our doorstep. Ponder our role in the care of all that God made and called good.
This is an interactive, activity-led study that explores the relationship between our faith, the science, and the social/cultural facets of Memorial UMC’s physical location in northeast Austin. It is for anyone curious to explore conceptually. There is no obligation beyond being engaged in the study. However, what we discover may inspire and inform your participation in the care of creation.
 
Sundays in April - 1:00-2:30 PM
Begin with a planned potluck immediately after worship in the Parlor
