Small Groups: 

At First United Methodist Church we believe the Christian faith is not just a set of theological beliefs but a way of life. Becoming a disciple means learning the Christian faith as a way of living in the world. This is best experienced in fellowship with others.
A small group is simply two or more persons who gather together regularly to experience and reflect God’s grace. Small groups not only help to nurture our faith in Christ but provide a community in which to grow with others and learn from shared experience. 
At First United Methodist Church we are launching small groups from time to time to meet people’s needs and schedules. Small groups are formed around the understanding and application of God’s Word.
People can attend church for months or even years without growing spiritually or really connecting. Small group ministries help us get connected and share the life of the body of Christ.
“As you are going, make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them how to actually live by the way of life that I have taught you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
