“The Faith of a Mockingbird” Adult Ed Series

Wednesday, September 16, 23, 30 & October 7at 10 am or 7 pm

The Faith of a Mockingbird is a four week adult series based on Harper Lee’s masterpiece “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Published in 1960, it serves as a lens through which we can understand our place in the world, and what it means to live out a hopeful faith in a broken world.

This is part of the “Pop in Culture” series by Matt Rawle, a United Methodist pastor from Ponchatoula, LA. We have previously used his studies on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and Victor Hugo’s “Les Miserables.”

We encourage you to order your copy of “The Faith of a Mockingbird” by Matt Rawle from eBay, Amazon, or Cokesbury The church will not be ordering books in bulk so place your order today as delivery may take a few weeks.

If you need help ordering your book or need to have the church order it (for pick up only) please contact Judy at 248-544-1400 x221 or by email

You will need to register for this class by emailing Because we may still be Zooming this class, this registration process will allow us to send you the Zoom invitation link as well as the accompanying videos from Matt Rawle.
Please be sure to refamiliarize yourself with Harper Lee’s classic story before we begin this series


Calling all men for a Saturday morning Men’s Bible Study.  The study would be conducted online via Zoom starting this Saturday, 9:00AM for 5 weeks.  No book to read, all you need to do is attend on Saturday mornings.

The study would be based on the “Live Like That” retreat we had in 2013.  No book to read, all you need to do is attend on Saturday mornings.  Here’s a brief description of the bible study:

Live Like That – To live in such a way that everything you say and do points to Christ. This bible study is intended to distinguish why it is you are to “Live Like That” and to help you (us) get in touch with your hunger and thirst to “Live Like That. To get closer to God in such a way as to hear how God is calling you to “Live Like That.” To learn practical everyday practices and disciplines to fulfill l what it is that God is calling you to take on. Just click this link to join:

I recommend joining 10 minutes early if this is your first time using Zoom.

To help us prepare our minds and hearts please take on the following prior to Saturday if possible.

Look in the bible and identify verses that speak to you in answering the question “Why should I Live Like That?”  Take notes on what those verses mean to you and why you were drawn to them.

Bring your notes and a bible to our online session this Saturday, we’ll be using them in our group discussions.  No worries if you don’t get a chance to do this, don’t let it stop you from joining us.
