Ongoing Small Groups/Studies

The groups below meet all throughout the year. The specific content may change, but the group of people learns from one another while on their faith journey together. These small groups are a great choice if you are looking for a group to connect with while choosing study materials as you go. If you don’t find something here that you are interested in, try United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, or a seasonal group that may focus on a topic you would like to explore. As a note, all groups will be meeting pending the church’s reopening plan and will seek to meet in the most safe way possible. When you sign up, the leader will contact you about the meeting location. To register, please cick here.
