Adult Small Group Ministries

We offer several ways for adults to connect, learn, and grow together.  We believe that relationships with other Christians in the small-group setting are key to spiritual maturity.

Family Breakfast

Our United Methodist Men host a family breakfast gathering with guest speakers every month. These breakfast meetings are open to families and offer opportunities for fellowship and learning.

Men’s Bible Study/Small Group

This group meets weekly on Saturday mornings.  This is an opportunity for men to wrestle with what it means to be a Christian in their homes, at work, and in the world. Click on the video below to watch a short video to see what a meeting of the Men’s Bible Study/Small Group is all about.

Short-Term Bible Studies

We have multiple short-term Bible studies going on throughout the spring and fall.  These give participants an opportunity to explore the meaning of the scriptures especially as they relate to personal growth and discipleship.  During Lent we offer our Lenten Soup Supper/Study series, which is held on Wednesday evenings.  The session begins with a light meal and is followed by Bible study.

Building Better Women

BBW is about women of all ages learning, serving, and growing together.  The group meets monthly to enjoy food, fellowship, guest speakers, and conversation.

Knitting Group/Prayer Shawl Ministry

We have about a dozen faithful knitters who enjoy fellowship, prayer, and service together weekly.  The shawls provide comfort to members and friends in need of care.  Every one receives a special blessing from the group.  From time to time, the group takes on special knitting projects to help people around the world.  Every stitch a prayer!

Sunday School

Our adult class meets each Sunday morning from September-June.  We encourage adults to attend Sunday School as a way to continue their spiritual growth.
