Adult Ministries

Find a group for you or a family member. 

Journey with us as we seek the way of Jesus and grow in the image of Christ. Our adult ministries are designed to sustain you along your faith journey and to help you understand where Christ is leading you. 

Join us in reading the Bible in a year. 

The Bible Year

Holy solitaries' is a phrase no more consistent with the Gospel than holy adulterers. The Gospel of Christ knows no religion but social; no holiness, but social holiness.

The Masculine Journey - Conference Room

A class where men of all ages will find a place of fellowship with a strong emphasis on studying God’s Word. The group encourages input and discussion on how to apply God’s Word to everyday life. For more information, contact Ed Adair

Young Adults - The Gathering Room

Adulting is hard. Building an adult faith can be even harder—but you don’t have to do it alone.

Join us Sunday mornings for discussion and fellowship as we explore the questions and challenges of faith in adulthood (20s and 30s). Drawing from Scripture, experience, and theology alike, we’ll wrestle with topics like prayer, doubt, and how to find God in the midst of the everyday world. You’ll have the chance to explore what you really believe and share what matters most with other people in the same stage of life. More than anything, you’ll be a part of a group that just does life—together.

Email Taylor Sutton for more info, or stop by The Gathering Room and say hello.

Small Groups

Our groups are designed to nurture relationships in faith based on common interests and life stages.  We strive to develop new groups throughout the year. Please, reach out to us, or visit a Welcome Home Gathering and we will connect you with others.  

Art & Faith

Art & Faith is a small group open to anyone interested in learning how to express their faith through art. You do not have to be an artist or an expert. As a group, we aim to explore what God is revealing to us and express it in art.  Contact Vicki Roberts.

Faith in Action

Join our newly forming Sunday afternoon small group that will revolve around short-term studies on particular social topics based on the interests of the group. Audra Johnston will coordinate the group and lead the first study, Outrageous Justice, which examines our criminal justice system. With the debate in our county about a new jail, this study is needed to have a deeper understanding of issues very much alive in our current context. The interests of the group will determine successive studies. The group will meet from 4-5:00 p.m. in the Conference Room at the church Sundays starting October 2.  Send an email to Audra at if you are interested.

Women at the Table

Join in our newly forming small group for women to gather together once a week over lunch and share stories of faith and life. Vicki Vasser will facilitate this hybrid group, which will start Thursday, October 6, and meet from 11:45 to 1 p.m. in the Conference Room or over Zoom. The first study will be Messy People by Jennifer Cowart. You will watch a short video and discuss over brownbag lunch. If you are interested, contact Vicki at .  She will share Zoom links and information on accessing the study with those who contact her.

Faith Walk

Love to walk the trails? Want to grow in relationship with Christ and others? Join Johnna Kosnoff, Jennifer Tilley, and Marcia Patterson at different trailheads on designated Tuesdays from 9-10. This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. You will share in a brief devotional (10 minutes) led by Johnna and walk the trail for the other 45-50 minutes. Jennifer will also share some hints for catching beautiful nature photos along the way. To put your faith in action in this group, email Marcia at   to be added to the list of meeting locations.  


Wednesdays with Pastor Michelle

Pastor Michelle’s Wednesday Night Bible Study meets on Wednesdays at 5:30 and 6:30 pm to study "The Bible Year".  Please join us in person in the Gathering Room or online at this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86439520032.

Dorcas Sewing Ministry

This group was organized by Maxine Hines in 1993 to give layettes to our two local hospitals to share with Moms in need and their babies.  We meet every month on the second Wednesday at 10 am.  Wylene Cohagan gives us a piano recital every workday. In our existence, we have benefitted at least 1000+ babies.  

Men's Breakfast

All Men in our church are invited to our United Methodist Men Breakfast and devotional. Breakfast is on Tuesdays at 7 am in Hines Hall. 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our prayer shawl group meets on Fridays at 10:30 am. This group is for anyone who enjoys knitting, crocheting, or would like to learn. Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls,  etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent. Some recipients have continued their kindness by making a shawl and passing it on to someone in need. Thus, the blessing ripples from person to person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, mothering God!
