Welcome to Community UMC Adult Ministry!
Many of our groups are either meeting online or on hiatus during the COVID pandemic.
Please contact the church office for more information about if and when groups are meeting.
Sunday Adult Christian Formation Classes
• The 9:00 AM class with Dr. Michael Gorman is open to everyone and focuses on growing as Christian disciples through shared study of, and reflection about, Scripture (and occasionally books about Scripture and the faith).
• The 9:00 AM class with E.K. James is open to everyone and is a verse-by-verse study of a book of the Bible, which allows for discussion of the culture of the time the book was written as well as reflections on how it can be applied today.
• The 10:45 AM class is open to everyone and is intended to create space for deeper fellowship, study, and reflection so that we may enrich our faith and put it into practice.
Small Group Opportunities
Friends in Service of Him (FISH) is a group for everyone, focused on fellowship, growing deeper in relationships with God and with each other, Bible study, and service to the community. The FISH group meets bi-monthly on Saturdays at 4:30 PM.
Sassafras is a group for everyone which focuses on local mission work and fellowship outings. In the past, Sassafras has served with Rebuilding AA County, Manna House, Ronald McDonald House, etc… Sassafras meets monthly on Thursdays at 6:30 PM.
Seasoned Seniors is a group for everyone, but is primarily available for persons age 50+. The Seasoned Seniors meet monthly for luncheons with speakers or entertainment. Additionally, they go on excursions with lunch at a place close to the destination. The Seasoned Seniors meet monthly on Thursdays.
Stitchers is an intergenerational group that meets because it is better to stitch in fellowship with others than to stitch alone! The Stitchers usually work on individual projects—knitting, crochet, x-stitch, crewel embroidery, quilting, etc…—however, they frequently work on a service project together, too. The Stitchers group meets every Tuesday at 9:30 AM.
Prayer Shawl Ministry is on a mission to use the gifts of their hands—knitting and crocheting—to create gifts that offer comfort and love to others. Their shawls and laprobes, afgans and caps are given freely to anyone needing an “extra hug” in times of sorrow, sadness, or joy to remind them of God’s unfailing love and power in our lives. The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets monthly on Thursdays at 7:00 PM.
