Adult

The Journey

Our purpose is to meet people where they are and assist them in their spiritual journey towards a Christ-Centered life, which is a life-long process. To assist your growth toward Christ-Centered living, we have a faith development plan which contains over 2000 titles and suggested studies for faith formation. This plan provides direction in identifying and selecting resources to help individuals and groups no matter where they may be on the spiritual continuum.

Sunday Learning Groups

We provide opportunities for adults to nurture a life-changing, transforming faith to live as active, mature disciples of Jesus Christ. You and your family are invited to join us. Sunday morning Learning Groups meet from 9:45–10:45 a.m. To request information about our Sunday Learning Groups, CLICK HERE.


Bible Studies

Some of the adult Bible studies we offer are short-term; others are more in-depth. Some are offered during the day; others are offered in the evenings. Some are gender specific; some are not. Long-term studies such as Precept, Jesus in the Gospels, and Christian Believer begin in September. Other shorter-term studies begin and end throughout the year. We are committed to providing you with the resources necessary to strengthen and deepen your personal journey with Christ. We offer studies to enrich understanding of the Bible, United Methodism, Christian ethics, discerning God’s will, repentance, transformation, prayer, spiritual gifts, Christian community, service, relationships, sharing the gospel, finances, stewardship, and time.

Small Groups

In small groups, lives are transformed when people connect together to pray, to study, to engage in fellowship, or to work on a specific mission or ministry.


  • Journey Groups provide an opportunity to connect with others who seek to study God’s Word together, and share in a small group environment how life and faith intersect.
  • Women's Ministry – A ministry of women whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders, and advocate for justice. United Methodist Women small groups meet monthly for devotions, fellowship, Bible study, and various mission and fund raising projects.

  • Prayer Ministry

    Through prayer, we align our lives with God. This ministry team meets weekly and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, seeks the will of God for individuals, our community, our church, and the world. Another team of Prayer Disciples prays for others who have shared specific prayer requests.

    Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus' command to love one another. Through one-on-one confidential caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need for support and wholeness. Stephen Ministers are people in the congregation who have completed extensive training and answered God’s call to care for others by listening, caring, and offering spiritual guidance and support.
