First United Methodist Church

Adult Groups & Discipleship

We have a variety of different groups for all adults at every life stage in your spiritual journey. From Small Groups, Sunday School Classes, Women’s Groups, and Men’s Groups – there is a place for you here! Scroll down to learn more about our adult opportunities. For more information, contact [email protected] or visit our leadership page for the staff contact.

Small Groups:

Small Groups are 8-12 people in weekly meetings designed to help believers with their everyday relationship with Jesus. These discussion-based groups operate on a 3 trimester system, where each trimester is approximately 12 weeks long. The hope is to grow deeper as followers of Jesus and in our relationships with the other members of our groups. In a relational community, we learn and grow in how to be a better follower of Jesus. To join a group, please complete the form below.

Ongoing Studies:

Sunday School

Sunday school is an opportunity to gather for deep and meaningful conversations about scripture and topics of faith.

Women’s Groups

Connect with other women with several care and support groups, such as Women Warriors and our Book Club.

Men’s Groups

Join the men’s ministry for monthly meals, and support groups twice per week.

Sunday school is an opportunity to gather for deep and meaningful conversations about scripture and topics of faith. It is also an opportunity to create relationships, get to know others in our church, and live out our faith in community as Jesus instructed us. The goal of all of these classes is empowering individuals to strengthen their spiritual gifts, extend care to those in need, and welcome and discuss new ideas in a safe setting. All are welcome.
