Small Groups

Small groups are communities of people who gather regularly for prayer, study and friendship. They are key to growing spiritually and connecting into the life of the church. Meeting regularly in community is a way we live out our commitments to serve God in community, pray for one another, support one another, and critically think about questions of faith. Some small groups meet for short intervals (4-5 weeks) and some meet more regularly. Small groups are an excellent way to meet people and get more involved in church life. All groups are open, and newcomers are always welcome.

 

Adult Sunday School

There is a variety of opportunities for adults of all ages to grow in their faith in a Sunday School setting. Each week "The Story" class meets in the Fellowship Hall. Throughout the year, a variety of short classes is offered on Sunday mornings or on weeknights with specific and varied curriculum. Check the current calendar to see what is available in the coming weeks. Calendar

United Methodist Men

All men of the community are invited to a devotional and breakfast every Tuesday in Fellowship Hall at 7:00 a.m. Grab breakfast and enjoy fellowship over Scripture before heading to work or starting your day. The men are very active in working around the church building to keep things working smoothly. They are actively involved in church sponsored S.H.E.D. (Safe Housing for the Elderly and Disabled) projects. They also have an annual  retreat as well as a special Lenten breakfast gathering on the Saturday before Palm Sunday.
