Small Groups

Small Groups

Small groups are a vibrant part of our ministry! The Small Group Ministries Team works with others to coordinate existing small groups, to identify what other groups may be needed, and to help start these groups.

John Wesley began his ministry with small groups and Methodism was born. Small groups have different emphases including fellowship, missions, study, and prayer. If you're looking for a group, check out the ones below.

Want to join or start a new group? Make an appointment with our Director of Discipleship, Pat Heaton.

Joyful Hearts

Our Senior Adults Ministry welcomes all adults age 50+ to join us in Christian Fellowship monthly on the 2nd Thursday at noon for lunch and a program of fun or interest. We travel by tour bus on day, overnight, and extended trips for our group to enjoy the opportunity to travel and discover God’s beautiful creation and to have new experiences in a Christian environment. Average attendance at meetings is 45, and on trips it is 35-50 persons.
