Adult Growth Groups

FINDER.jpg

At Navarre, we don't "do life" alone.

Instead, we have groups where you can plug in and make the journey with others, no matter where you might be in that journey.

We believe that God wants each of us to have a personal and evolving relationship with him. This relationship starts when we decided to follow Christ and continues our entire lives. A person needs to be strengthened in his or her walk with God in order to stand up to the pressures of the world. This is where Growth Groups come in. Our Groups help people grow in community and support one another during difficult times in life.

Men's Breakfast

Men's Breakfast

The Men of Navarre and Their Sons

Are Gathering together every month to work through the the DVD study, Stepping Up. Even if you have never been before, feel free to drop on in. This is a wonderful opportunity for Fathers and Sons to join together in Faith Conversations and grow in their faith around the breakfast table. This group meets on a month basis in Hildreth Hall.


As men, all of us face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices—let’s call them battles—matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow’s integrity depends on today’s bravery.

In Stepping Up, Dennis Rainey identifies five stages of a man’s journey through life—boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch—and examines a man’s responsibilities at each step. Rainey calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It’s about embracing courage, rejecting passivity and cowardice.

Ultimately, you’ll be challenged to be the man on your battlefield.

Donate Blood. Save a Life.

Join us from 9:00a - 1:30p, Sunday before and after all worship services. All donors will receive a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening! Please stop by, you just might save a life!

Tips for a Successful Blood Donation:

  • Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, spinach, iron-fortified cereals, and raisins.
  • Get a good night's sleep.
  • Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before the donation.
  • Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as hamburgers, fries or ice cream before donating. (Fatty foods can affect the tests we do on your blood. If there is too much fat in your blood, your donation cannot be tested for infectious diseases and the blood will not be used for transfusion.)
  • If you are a platelet donor, remember that your system must be free of aspirin for two days prior to donation.
  • Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.
  • Wear clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
  • Let the person taking your blood know if you have a preferred arm and show them any good veins that have been used successfully in the past to draw blood.
  • Relax, listen to music, talk to other donors or read during the donation process.
  • Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshments area immediately after donating.

Details

  • Bring gloves and anything you want to use to pick up the trash. They will provide the trash bags.

  • Meet at Meet at Navarre Beach public parking, near pier. If you have questions, you can contact the event coordinator through their Facebook event or call her at 850.499.6774.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

to Sep 9

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Relief.jpg

Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of the U.S. August 26 affecting millions of people with multiple days of heavy rain, winds, and rising tides. The United Methodist Church is actively present, working with local and state emergency management, FEMA, and other volunteers active in disaster. This is how you can help:

 

PRAY

We thank you for your concern and the prayers you have already been offering for the people of Texas as they experience the destruction of Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Please continue to pray for the first responders, those whose homes are destroyed or damaged, and those whose lives will never be the same. Also pray for the congregations on the front lines as they respond to the current needs and the needs that will be there for months and years to come.

GIVE

The next best way to help is to provide financial contributions which can be used to purchase appropriate and needed items quickly and locally.

  • You can give at Navarre United Methodist Church.
  • You can donate directly online to UMCOR by clicking here.
  • Your church can also send donations to the Fiscal Office, 4719 Woodmere Blvd., Montgomery, AL 36106. Note "UMCOR 901670" in the memo line.
  • If you prefer donations be sent directly to the affected annual conferences in Texas instead, send those to the same address above with "Hurricane Harvey - Texas Disaster Response" in the memo line.

DONATE

The Disaster Response Warehouse in Decatur is asking for these donations:

  • Box fans
  • 25' heavy-duty 14-gauge extension cords
  • 2 gallon garden sprayers
  • flat billed shovels
  • rakes with 3" tines

Navarre UMC is also collecting UMCOR Cleaning Buckets (flood buckets) and Hygiene Kits (health kits). Assembly instructions can be found here. Please follow the instructions carefully.

These following churches in our conference are current collection points. Please contact the church directly in advance to arrange for delivery.

VOLUNTEER

We also need help with transporting items from these locations to the disaster warehouse in Decatur, AL, or Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, LA. If you can offer such assistance with a truck/trailer and/or as a driver, please contact Susan Hunt at susan@awfumc.org.

Once the waters recede and invitations from the affected conferences have been extended, we will provide more information about how teams can volunteer on the ground. Please do not self-deploy until we provide additional instructions.

We are already in conversation with the leadership of UMCOR and other conferences' disaster response leadership teams. 

Rev. Alan McBride is organizing teams to travel for 2-3 days to help clean up Texas. If you are interested in joining a team please fill out the form below:

Group Merge - Adult Sunday Group

Your Busy, But You can Still be Connected and Grow

Summer is filled with food, family, and fun. School is out and that means finding things to keep the kids busy. It doesn't have to mean that you loose the time to stay connected with your church family and grow in your faith.

Many times, people loose connection with small groups because of traveling and other activities, so four of our Sunday groups have come together to help support each other throughout the craziness of the summer and still grow.

Meet new people and continue your relationships! This group will meet at 11:00a in Taylor Hall Rooms 209/211. 

The group will use Seedbed's "7 Minute Seminary" series. Each week will be an independent topic so don't worry if you've missed the past 3 weeks. You can pick right back up like you've been there the whole time. You'll watch a 7-8 minute video and then work through a discussion guide. The guide will be emailed out prior to group if you want to do some scripture reading before you come and pre-watch the video.

Annual Conference Missional Gift

Support Pensacola Community Ministries and Others

On June 4th, Pastors Alan and Faith will be traveling to Montgomery, Alabama, to join other Methodist pastors for Annual Conference. While there, they will have the opportunity to give an offering from our church at the opening worship service. All donations must be received by May 28th. Take a moment to hear from Bishop David Graves, our resident Bishop, about this special offering.

This year's offering will go to a group of community ministries, one of which is our very of Pensacola United Methodist Community Ministries (PUMCM). PUMCM operates out of Richard's Memorial UMC. Our church helps serve there every month through our youth department and through special events during the holidays.

Ways to Give:

  • Give on Sunday morning and designate your contribution: 2017 Missional Offering
  • Bring your contribution by the church office or drop it in the mail, designated for 2017 Missional Offering

This year’s recipients of the 2017 Missional Offering for the Alabama-West Florida Conference are local mission agencies within the bounds of our conference. They are The Ark, Dumas Wesley Community Center, Mary Ellen’s Hearth, Milk and Honey Outreach Ministries, United Methodist Inner City Mission in Mobile, and Pensacola United Methodist Community Ministries.

Below is a brief overview of each agency so that you may learn more about the outstanding work they do in their respective communities. 

The Ark

The Ark has been a ministry in Panama City Beach for more than 40 years. Noah’s Ark was formed as a retreat center for The AWF Conference of The United Methodist Church. Since 2012, they have been developing two new ministry directives: a coffee shop and international student housing. They are committed to combating human trafficking in the area! Thousands of people have been impacted by the ministry of The Ark over the years, and they look forward to continuing this legacy by providing new connections to the community. 

Dumas Wesley Community Center

The mission of the Dumas Wesley Community Center of Mobile, Alabama is to educate, empower and enrich the local community through collaborative programs of Christian service. That includes providing for immediate human needs, strengthening family life, developing leadership and encouraging personal responsibility. 

Mary Ellen's Hearth

Mary Ellen’s Hearth offers hope, help, and healing to homeless women and children throughout the River Region (Montgomery area). They offer hope by providing life skills training, transitional housing and Christian love and support. The goal of Mary Ellen’s Hearth is for the families they serve to leave them within two years, their dignity and self-respect restored, prepared for a life of independence. 

Milk and Honey Outreach Ministries

Since its founding in 1992, over a thousand participants have become stronger citizens by exploring the world around them. Art, culture, science, history and literature become fun and engaging extensions of learning through the after-school, weekend and summer programs. 

Pensacola United Methodist Community Ministries

For eight years, PUMCM has been working with Escambia County’s most vulnerable residents: homeless individuals and families, children living in poverty, U.S. veterans, mentally ill, former inmates, substance abusers and others in need. The main purpose of their ministry is to promote the dignity and welfare of the under-resourced in the community by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. 

United Methodist Inner City Mission in Mobile

The UM Inner City Missions is a Christ-centered, holistic ministry that makes disciples for the transformation of the world by sharing God’s unconditional love with those they serve. The Mission provides ministries where children, youth, and adults can experience love, hope, and acceptance. 


All of these ministries are serving as the hands and feet of Christ and the least of these in our world. Our conference is extremely proud of the work they do each day to reach people for Christ. All of these agencies are currently exploring ways they can seek funding in new and creative ways. We are pleased that this year’s missional offering is an in-conference offering and humbly ask that you prayerfully consider giving generously to this special offering. The positive impact from this offering will be widespread across the bounds of the conference. This offering will be presented at Opening Worship of Annual Conference on Sunday, June 4, 2017.

Illustrated Bible Journaling Workshop

Lesson 7 -  Art Journaling with Gelatos

If you prefer to add artistic creations outside of your bible, Rebekah shows how to create beautiful faith journaling within an art journal. Try your hand at stamping and watercoloring with Gelatos in this fun lesson. Don't worry, the possibilities in your Bible are endless too.

Rebekah walks you step-by-step through the basics of page prep and then introduces watercolor and stamping. Then you will create a beautiful mixed media tag which can be clipped in or adhered with washi. We will be meeting Friday, May 26th from 6:30-8:00 at the Den (2172 Fox Den Dr.). Child care is provided.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING:

  • A Bible (preferably a journaling one with space to create the art in) or a journal/sketchpad
