BREATHING UNDER WATER: A 12-STEP STUDY
Sundays, 12:30-1:30pm, beginning September 2nd (12 weeks) - sign up here!
Do you have a hurt, habit, or hang-up that is causing you pain? Truth is, we are all addicted in some way: to substances, old dreams, relationships, fears. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and to our world. Would you like to find freedom and hope in the midst of life's chaos? Join Pastor Hedy Collver on this healing adventure! Using Richard Rohr's book Breathing Under Water, together we'll walk through the 12 steps of recovery. If you have any questions, contact Pastor Hedy by email or at 954-584-7500.

FALLING UPWARD (A LUNCHTIME CLASS)
Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00pm, beginning September 12th (6 weeks) - sign up here!
Too often our society regards the "second half of life" as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go... but that couldn't be further from the truth! In this class, we'll be using the book Falling Upward as we explore the truth that what looks like "falling down" can be experienced as "falling upward." In fact, it is not loss but beautiful growth, as we continue our journey with God! Feel free to bring a bag lunch and join Pastor Hedy as we explore why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness!

JOURNEY TO THE HOLY LAND | 2019
In February 2019, a group from Plantation UMC will be traveling to Israel under under the direction of Pastor Hedy Collver, together with her good friend Rev. Fawn Mikel and Local Guide Canon Iyad Qumri. This will be much more than a trip – it will be a pilgrimage. Pilgrimages are very different from tours. As we walk through the land where Jesus was born, grew up, died, and was resurrected, we will not only "visit" these holy sites but we will LIVE them together! Although reservations for the pilgrimage are now closed, we would invite you to pray for the pilgrims, and pray about joining a future group!
