Introducing

A new approach to nurturing faith in teens Confirmation is meant to be a meaningful commitment of faith, but it often feels like an empty ceremony. Confirm, the new United Methodist Church-approved confirmation program, seeks to engage and educate students in a real journey of faith development. Begin the conversation today! CONFIRM

Your Faith. Your Commitment. God’s Call. The Confirm family of resources reclaims confirmation as the first step on a journey that leads to a mature, adult faith. Confirm treats confirmation as more than a decision. Instead, it is the beginning of a conversation about what it means to be a Christian: living out your faith, your commitment, and God’s call. Confirm is an easy-to-follow and customizable program that can be used in any church setting and with a wide variety of schedules. You can organize your own confirmation program over the course of a school year, a 3-year span, or in any way that meets your needs—without having to purchase additional content.

MENTOR GUIDE: The Mentor Guide provides an overview of the confirmation process and equips mentors with suggested relationship building ideas, as well as providing some of the dos and don’ts when taking on the role of mentor.

With flexible and easy-to-understand materials, Confirm provides students with the basic beliefs of a theologically sound, United Methodist faith while engaging them in creative and thought-provoking activities to help them internalize what they’ve learned. Confirm also embraces the importance of community in the journey of faith development, and provides materials to encourage cooperation with parents and mentors in the confirmation process and beyond. Published by Cokesbury.

DVD: The Confirm DVD has two styles of video, YouTube-style & Whiteboard sketch-style, both closed captioned and running 2–3 minutes each: 1) Unit overview, YouTube-style videos are fun, fast-paced, and engaging. Hosted by Blimey Cow. 2) Selected unit lessons utilize whiteboard sketch-style videos for deeper learning and reflection. Fun and easy to follow.

DIRECTOR GUIDE: This helpful guide provides direction for creating an effective discipleship path for teens during confirmation at your church. Complete with detailed instructions, Confirm integrates easily with the church’s youth ministry program and other ministries throughout the church. In addition, you will be provided tools for creating specific confirmation assessments and reasonable expectations for youth, pastor, parents, and confirmation leaders.

FIVE MEANS OF GRACE: Experience God’s Love the Wesleyan Way Elaine A. Heath

This six-week, video-based study will help Christians (new and seasoned) to re-order their lives by recognizing and affirming the outward signs, words, and actions of an invisible, divine grace. Wesley confirmed the tendency in each of us for the love of God and others to grow cold, so that we drift away from the gift of God’s unmerited grace. So Wesley showed us ways to reorder our lives through the “means of grace.” These means are the ordinary channels that God uses to draw us into a fruitful relationship: Prayer, Searching Scripture, Receiving the Lord’s Supper, Fasting, and Conferencing (worship together). Through these “means” we receive God’s gifts together, and we experience the power of a spiritual relationship with God. Abingdon Press. Coming in August. 9781501835643.

E SS

IO N

Three Simple Rules and Five Marks of a Methodist reintroduced Wesley’s formative identity and boosted our way of Christian living in thousands of congregations. The next most important document that Wesley delivered to the rapidly expanding societies and congregations was The Wesley Covenant Prayer and Renewal Service from 1755, which is crucial to Methodist identity. This service, a liturgical event in 1755, was preceded by several mornings of teaching from John Wesley about “the means of increasing serious religion.” In support of the prayer, Charles Wesley also wrote a hymn—“Come, Let Us Use the Grace Divine.” Over the millenia since 1755, many Methodists have used this liturgy on New Year’s Eve—the Watch Night Service—as a service of renewal of the individual’s covenant with God for the coming year. Wesley’s covenant renewal can function now as an accessible churchwide campaign that culminates in the liturgical affirmation and faithful promise to love God and neighbor faithfully.

FIVE MARKS OF A METHODIST: The Fruit of a Living Faith Magrey deVega with Steve Harper

E SS

S

This small-group study is based on Steve Harper’s book Five Marks of a Methodist. Six sessions provide extended reflection for adults on the five identifiers that Wesley sets forth in The Character of a Methodist, which he published in 1742—Character: The Marks of a Methodist; A Methodist Loves God; A Methodist Rejoices in God; A Methodist Gives Thanks; A Methodist Prays Constantly; A Methodist Loves Others. In The Character of a Methodist, Wesley clearly stated that he did not want to distinguish Methodism from any “real Christian of whatsoever denomination.” At the same time, Wesley knew that if the Methodist movement was to be established and grow, it must rest upon the solid foundation of gospel characteristics. This study provides a focused strengthening of the world Wesleyan family, while written so that any Christian person or group could use it with blessing and benefit. The study consists of the book, Five Marks of a Methodist, a Participant Character Guide, a Leader Guide, DVD and streaming video sessions (6 brief videos). For your convenience, the Leader Guide contains the full text of the Participant Character Guide. Abingdon Press. 9781501820267. Participant Character Guide. $4.99 9781501820243.

Authors’ insights

In life, we grow up hearing our parents, teachers, coaches, and other leaders instructing us to do our best and work hard. There’s nothing wrong with doing your best and working hard, we should, but problems begin to arise when those childhood messages creep into our relationship with God. In fact, there’s a danger when we equate our human efforts and achievements with our ability to measure up to God’s standards and try and earn God’s love. That’s why we’re so grateful for grace.

Grace. It’s a game changer. And when never-ending love comes from God, it sometimes feels like more than you can take. Why does God want to have a personal relationship with me? How can I fully experience and respond to God’s grace? What does “grace” really mean? In A Grace-Full Life, you’ll examine a Wesleyan understanding of grace for the common person. You’ll learn about various forms of grace—prevenient grace, justifying grace, sanctifying grace, and glorifying grace—and you’ll come away knowing how God’s grace truly works in your life. The book may be used as a standalone resource or combined with a DVD and Leader Guide for a foursession study.

We hear a lot about “spiritual journey” these days. But it’s more than just trendy wording. Although he didn’t use the phrase, that’s what John Wesley was really all about—taking steps and continually walking a path that transforms the heart and helps us grow into the likeness of Christ. This study, designed for use in either small groups or as a churchwide experience, attempts to reclaim and, in a sense, reinterpret Wesley’s idea of “Christian perfection.” Participants learn how to develop a pattern of daily Scripture reading, prayer, and personal reflection. Guided questions help define spiritual life goals and create strong church community bonds. The Daily Workbook (Participant Book) fosters personal spiritual growth as group members develop their own pattern of daily Scripture reading, prayer, and personal reflection (five readings per week). The Program Kit includes the Daily Workbook, the Companion Reader (devotional), a Leader Guide with downloadable toolkit, and a flash drive with the contents of the downloadable toolkit.

Disciple Fast Track Into the Word, Into the World adapts Disciple II: Into the Word, Into The World for people with busy schedules. It retains the familiar Disciple format with its theme word, theme verse, statement of the human condition, daily and weekly assignments, and prayer. At some point in their study of every lesson, readers make decisions about how they will respond to Scripture in terms of ministry in the world. Each week, people will be guided in experiencing the gift of Sabbath rest and renewal. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks, (12 for Genesis-Exodus, 12 for Luke-Acts). The time commitment is manageable, with only 3–5 chapters of the Bible to read each day. No additional preparation is needed for the Leader—just follow the Guide. Weekly sessions last 75 minutes.

AT THIS TABLE… Relationships are forged. The Bible unfolds. Leaders are born.

Covenant is an in-depth group Bible study in which participants read and discuss the Bible together, learning how to love God—and each other—better. Three 8-episode segments each explore a different aspect of Covenant life. Each will examine what Covenant means, and the progression of a Covenant relationship with God. Creating

Trusting

Examines how the Covenant community is created and established.

Focuses on how the community lives out their Covenant in faithful love—how it’s applied to actual relationships in everyday life.

Looks at the crises that sometimes call Covenant life into question, and how we are restored to trust in God when troubling things happen.

Covenant represents a relationship—a living, breathing conversation. And we invite you to join in it. “The Covenant videos are excellent, with high production quality and creativity. The hosts and scholars conversed so naturally while providing significant insight.” –Melissa Durbin, Christ Church (Episcopal), Winnetka, IL

“Covenant is an outstanding resource— well-designed, accessible, and easy to use. The study’s leader resources and the daily readings distributed from Covenant by e-mail made it easy to prepare for each group meeting.” –Bonnie Edwards, Director of Adult Education, First Presbyterian Church, Dallas, TX

“The study’s overarching theme of covenant really hit home with participants, allowing them to make connections with scripture and across biblical texts that they had not made previously. –Eric Johnson, Director of Congregational Education, Hyde Park Presbyterian Church, Tampa FL

Author’s insights

For Christians, the beliefs expressed in the Apostles’ Creed are foundational. In this book we’ll consider those beliefs and begin a conversation about what Christians believe, why they believe it, and why it matters, My hope and prayer is that, long after you close this book, you’ll continue to ask, to answer, and to believe.

We’re used to answers popping up on a screen right in front of us. But when the questions examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life, finding the answers takes more than simply typing a few words and pushing a button. Adam Hamilton believes that powerful answers to many of our complicated questions are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In Creed, he explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe, and why it matters, which in turn leads readers to confront and examine their own core beliefs and go beyond reciting the Creed’s familiar words. The book is part of a six-week churchwide program for Lent, Easter, and beyond that includes a Leader Guide, DVD, youth and children resources, and “I Believe” card pack.

Do you say “no” too often? Yes. Pastors, laity, staff...we’re all guilty of squelching and constraining creative people who want to use the gifts God has given them to serve and lead even if we don’t mean to. Bishop Robert Schnase helps pastors and other leaders examine the systems, attitudes, and dynamics that restrain, control, and diminish ministry, providing insights and practical help for those who want to be more open to innovation and experimentation for the purposes of Christ. Just Say Yes! and see what happens. Based on principles from the original book, the study consists of Leader Guide, Participant Guide with 7-Day Devotional, DVD (12 videos; some for invitation/promotional use), a 4-Week Devotional, and free customizable and downloadable resources. This unique study can be facilitated in several ways: in three 1-hour sessions, six 30-minute sessions, or any combination of shorter, multiple sessions; as a day-long staff or leadership retreat; in three consecutive weekly gatherings; or as a 30-minute opener for your church council meetings over the course of several weeks.

We live in a skeptical age. People—especially young people—express doubts about Christian faith. In this thoughtful eight-week study, Bishop Scott Jones, author of The Wesleyan Way, partners with his son Rev. Arthur Jones to address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion, and the church. The questions include: Can only one religion be true? Why is there suffering and evil? How can I believe in science and creation? How can I believe in a God I can’t prove? Can I trust the Old Testament? Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues? Was Jesus’ resurrection real? Why do Christians disagree about so many things?

3D FEATURE (GIANT)

The message is strong and clear: Don’t let your questions stop you from accepting God’s invitation to faith. Engage your doubt, and you may find you are closer to God on the other side.

Even little children can be heard reciting The Lord’s Prayer during a service—most Christians know it by heart. Although it is the “prayer Jesus taught us to pray,” the New Testament gives us other specific examples of the words Jesus prayed. Studying these prayers reminds us of the personal and profound nature of the Trinity, shows us God’s great love for his people, allows us to marvel at the magnitude of Jesus’ sacrifice, and helps us prayerfully communicate with our God. Learn how Jesus’ prayers inform and engage his intentions of how the gospel would change lives and affect the world, both in the first century and for every century to follow.

Spiritual Growth Gift edition of the acclaimed and best-selling book! THE WILL OF GOD

Leslie D. Weatherhead; foreword by Adam Hamilton During the tumultuous era of World War II, the city of London shattered under unrelenting bombs dropped by Nazi Germany. Millions of buildings were destroyed or damaged, tens of thousands of civilians were killed, and survivors were left to ask: How can this destruction be part of God’s plan? What is God’s will in all of this? After City Temple in London was reduced to rubble, Rev. Leslie Weatherhead crafted five sermons on understanding the will of God to help his congregation endure religious doubt as their city—and church—crumbled around them. Weatherhead’s sermons were eventually published as The Will of God, a resource that has sold more than a million copies and has been a lifeline for grieving persons seeking to understand God’s purpose for their pain. This gift edition of the classic book includes a new foreword from best-selling author Adam Hamilton, background information and photos of the historical setting that inspired this book, and a new cover and layout to refresh a timeless message— both for new readers and returning fans.

Church & Culture Lead your congregation to see and solve problems of race and justice in your community HOLDING UP YOUR CORNER

Talking about Race in Your Community F. Willis JoÚson How do you talk about racial prejudice, entrenched poverty and exploitation, segregation, the loss of local education and employment, the ravages of addiction, and more? Holding up Your Corner walks you through a self-directed process of determining what role your church can play in your specific community. You’ll learn how to use testimony and other narrative devices, proclamation, guided group conversations, and other tactics in order to own the calling and responsibility we have as Christians. Examples from a wide variety of churches and leaders make this a valuable resource for everyone concerned with racial justice.

Discover the distinctively Christian way of engaging the “outsider” FEAR OF THE OTHER: No Fear In Love

William H. Willimon

Tolerate one another. Wait. Isn’t that supposed to be love one another? It’s one thing to genuinely love people who are more or less the same as we are, but what about those who are not only strangers, but people who live completely different lives? Reliable spiritual guide Will Willimon invites you to look more closely at the gospel’s command to love—because to genuinely love those considered to be “Other” may be the hardest thing for people of faith to do.

HIJACKED: Responding to the Partisan Church Divide Mike Slaughter and Charles E. Gutenson with Robert P. Jones

Partisan politics has infiltrated our churches and political commitments are creating unnecessary divisions. Too often it seems politics trumps theology. Hijacked explores this phenomenon, offers analysis, and proposes a way forward. Abingdon Press. 9781426742361. $14.99; Cokesbury Price $10.04 UM17

quote I love Will Willimon, and I love this book.

Will writes with prophetic sarcasm, a touch of humor, plenty of self-effacement, and a pastor’s heart. And his words will make you laugh, cringe, cry, confess, and repent.

Leadership Model your ministry after John Wesley’s LEAD LIKE WESLEY: Help for Today’s Ministry Servants

Mark L. Gorveatte

Two centuries ago, Jo h n Wesley famously composed Twelve Rules for Helpers for pastors of his time who would follow in his ministry footsteps. To this day much wisdom is still gleaned from his leadership principles. In Lead Like Wesley, author Mark Gorveatte devotedly unpacks the heart of each rule, revealing how the timeless truths should no less inform and direct all good Christian leadership in this day and age. Each chapter is dedicated to one rule, is supported by a key theme with its scriptural context, and is thoughtfully considered in the light of contemporary research, making a compelling case for character-based leadership.

Leadership Devotions for first responders STRENGTH FOR SERVICE TO GOD AND COMMUNITY: Daily Devotional Messages for Those in the Service of Others Richard Peck

Strength for Service to God and Community is a book of daily devotions for police officers, firefighters, healthcare workers, and other first responders that is patterned after a book of daily devotions that was given to one million members of the Armed Forces during World War II and the Korean War. That book went out of publication in 1954, but a California Boy Scout arranged to have it reprinted and expanded. Some 500,000 copies of the updated book have been published and most of the books were sent free to chaplains to distribute to their troops prior to deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Rev. Dr. Daniel Tackett, director of the International Police and Fire Chaplains Association said the book will become an important tool for his chaplains. “Sometimes these highly trained people can draw a blank during high stress/trauma situations...The book is a tool to help the mind, soul, and spirit find peace.” Edmonds Publishing & Media. 9780615740621. $11.95; Cokesbury Price $8.13

History One of the most important religious leaders in American history AMERICAN SAINT: Francis Asbury and the Methodists John Wigger

English-born Francis Asbury was one of the most important religious leaders in American history. Asbury single-handedly guided the creation of the American Methodist church, which became the largest Protestant denomination in nineteenth-century America, and laid the foundation of the Holiness and Pentecostal movements that flourish today. In American Saint, John Wigger has written the definitive biography of Asbury and, by extension, a revealing interpretation of the early years of the Methodist movement in America. Asbury emerges here as not merely an influential religious leader, but a fascinating character, who lived an extraordinary life. His cultural sensitivity was matched only by his ability to organize. His life of prayer and voluntary poverty were legendary, as was his generosity to the poor. He had a remarkable ability to connect with ordinary people, and he met with thousands of them as he crisscrossed the nation, riding more than one hundred and thirty thousand miles between his arrival in America in 1771 and his death in 1816. Indeed, Wigger notes that Asbury was more recognized face-to-face than any other American of his day, including Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Oxford University Press. 9780199948246.

Learn how a passionate Wesley can still inspire us to travel the road to perfection using these basic beliefs as signposts, not hitching posts, so that we can more fully follow Jesus. Discipleship can be arduous and God’s grace is not cheap. We must be prepared to walk the walk and not just talk. The Christian life is action packed with surprises at every turn. “Are you able?” as the old hymn asks. Yes, Lord, we are able through the power and love of God to be accountable to Jesus and each other. Abingdon Press. Coming in September. 9781501846892.

A WESLEYAN THEOLOGY OF THE EUCHARIST: The

THE HOLY SPIRIT

Stanley Hauerwas and William H. Willimon

Presence of God for Christian Life and Ministry Jason E. Vickers, general editor

The work of the Spirit is often thought of as “inspirational,” but it’s more than a personal experience. This book helps readers understand that the Holy Spirit is who God is and what God does as the Trinity, and learn how to prayerfully embrace this gift that created the church and continues to empower us. Abingdon Press.

The commitment to the centrality of the Eucharist for Christian life and practice has waxed and waned though it was greatly valued by John and Charles Wesley. Here, scholars seek to recover the importance of Holy Communion for theology and ministry. Board of Higher Education & Ministry.

Theology Wesley’s foundational text PLAIN ACCOUNT OF CHRISTIAN PERFECTION John Wesley

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” —Matthew 5:48 In his classic book, A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, John Wesley offers a comprehensive teaching on the doctrine of Christian perfection. In it, he describes the evolution of his own theological reasoning, telling the story of how he came to understand and to preach this doctrine in his own life. In this work that is part autobiography, part spiritual contemplation, and part scriptural exegesis, Wesley shares tracts he wrote on the topic of perfection, describes the conflicts that sometimes arose over his ideas, reveals his own developing convictions, and offers probing queries for all believers to consider. Included at the end is an account of Wesley’s personal experience of “entire holiness.” Whitaker Distributors. 9781629113005. $12.99; Cokesbury Price $10.26

The Wesleys A unique pictorial art history book that describes Jo h n Wesley’s legacy through the many portraits and sculptures that attempt his exact likeness, in life and in death AN EXACT LIKENESS: The Portraits of John Wesley Richard P. Heitzenrater

Faces are more than a montage of organs that see, breathe, speak, hear, eat, sing, smell, and yell. The slightest nuance in expressions can provide evidence of character that is as telling as a report card or a police blotter, and portraits of individuals can be equally revealing of the person’s inner nature. Richard P. Heitzenrater, the top Jo h n Wesley scholar in the world, provides a commentary and interpretation of historical circumstances surrounding more than 50 full-color portraits and sculptures of the father of Methodism in An Exact Likeness. You may just learn more about Wesley in this unique art history book than what you can find in a conventional biography. Abingdon Press. 9781501816604. Hardcover. $39.99; Cokesbury Price $26.79

Official Resources 2017–2020 UNITED METHODIST CHURCH MEMBERSHIP RECORDS MANUAL:

A Complete Guide to the Tools You Need to Set Up and Maintain the Membership Records for Your Church The task of the church is to reach out to people and receive them in the name of Jesus Christ, to help them relate to God, to nurture and strengthen them in their journey of discipleship, and to send them into the world to live transformed and transforming lives. The United Methodist Membership Records System supports these pastoral concerns. Using the forms and procedures described in this manual will enable your church to maintain excellent membership records, which will be the source of vital information used by pastors, witness ministry chairpersons, evangelism chairpersons, and other church leaders for effective ministries to make disciples. It will also help the pastor and staff meet the membership record-keeping and reporting requirements of The Book of Discipline. This manual includes background, purpose, and value for keeping membership records for care and outreach; FAQs on records required by The Book of Discipline 2016; tips on how to close gaps in your membership records; and a sample of each membership record sheet with instructions.

Note: Additional resources are available online with purchase of a print version: searchable PDF of the Manual; templates for membership record sheets (acid free archival paper is available from Cokesbury so you can print out the forms for your permanent record); templates for 8.5" x 11" certificates for baptism, confirmation/reception, and membership in English, Korean, and Spanish; plus templates for additional forms, including Notification of Moved Members, Certificates of Transfer, and Verification of Baptism.
