Fall Worship Schedule
In light of the current economic landscape, Smoky Hill UMC has been running at a deficit for the majority of the year. With much effort we have been able to keep expenses in line with our yearly budget, but our income has not kept up with expectations. We are asking everyone to prayerfully consider if you might be able to increase your support of our church for the remainder of the year.
We are ROOTED together!

Creation Bible Study
CREATION: ALL THAT IS
Let’s talk about Creation and all there is. Genesis 1. Genesis 2. Why are there 2 creation stories? What is God up to? Is creation still happening? What does that look like? What is our relationship/responsibility to creation as a child of God? Visio Divina. Creativity in our human nature – art, music, poetry, ingenuity and invention, and science and math. Beauty and bounty in nature, animals, the elements, and the galaxy. Living in a space of awe-ness.

Tuesday Morning Theologians
You’re invited to journey with Tuesday Morning Theologians while we discuss the study materials & videos from Living the Questions- The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity.
Discover why the church is really in the Question Business. The voices of top church leaders and scholars present a lively and stimulating tour of what it means to be a “progressive” Christian. LtQ explores matters that many churches are afraid to address, it examines in a new light traditional faith topics, such as, the humanity of Jesus, the Bible, atonement, salvation, the rapture and much more.
We meet on Tuesday mornings from 9 to 11 am beginning September 13 in Room 214. The study is divided into 3 seven-part studies– we’ll intersperse the sections with churchwide studies and books as the class decides. To register for the class or for questions contact John Tedrick at email@example.com.
Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. – Rainer Maria Rilke
Lunch Bunch will begin their new year on September 13th. Meetings are held in Room 214 starting at 11:30.
We will be discussing Native: Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God by Kaitlin B. Curtice.
"Native is about identity, soul-searching, and the never-ending journey of finding ourselves and finding God. As both a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and a Christian, Kaitlin Curtice shares what it means to experience her faith through the lens of her Indigenous heritage and encourages us to embrace our own origins.”
The church functions for our congregation, the community, and globally to share God's love.
