Join us for bible study in the fall, spring and at Advent. Small groups meet Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
OUR BIBLE STUDies:
THE GIFT OF THE NUTCRACKER
ADVENT STUDY AND WORSHIP THEME
The theme for the 2019 Advent season is THE GIFT OF THE NUTCRACKER. It includes a study for adults, youth and children as well as the basis for our Sunday morning worship. If you have not had a chance to watch the NUTCRACKER in recent years, please take time this season to do so. Invite some friends and family members. See it in a different venue than you remember seeing it last. If you wish to organize an outing that includes other church members, do so and send the details to the office and we will include it in the Sunday announcements. The sign-up for the Adult study is in the narthex . Books are $10. Let's exam the connection of pop culture and our faith and have fun in-between. Classes will meet on Tuesdays at 10:30 am or Wednesdays at 6:00 pm starting in December.
The Curiosity Returns
For Advent, the Bible for Curious People will meet on Tuesdays, December 3rd, 10th, & 17th at 10:30am and will be using THE GIFT OF THE NUTCRACKER.
Fall Bible Study - Wednesday Night
Our fall Bible study class is FAST TRACK DISCIPLE: Remember Who You Are focusing on the prophets of the Old Testament. Class will run through the end of November with the last class being on MONDAY, November 25th, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.. This year there will be NO DINNER. Our youth are meeting at another time.
Adventurers' Group Outings
The Adventurers Group is a group of "mature" adults from WUMC who have been socializing and forming close friendships since our very first Progressive Dinner in January, 1986.
We meet the third Saturday of each month during the year, summers off. Our group has been socializing and forming close friendships for many years. Each month a person or couple is in charge of planning the event. We go to a restaurant together and usually follow with fellowship at the host's home. We have attended plays, had pot luck dinners, etc. We are always welcoming newcomers. Save the 3rd Saturday, and look for information on our church calendar.
Is childcare provided?
Not all small groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Some small group members share the responsibility of watching the kids, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. Let us know if you would like to join a small group with a childcare option.

Lead A Small Group
You know as much as anybody that it's important to be connected. We know it's hard to connect with others and build lasting friendships. We know that even defining community is tough because being in community is more than showing up for Bible study. It's also sharing food, laughing till it hurts, and doing what you love to do with your favorite people.
What if you could help more people find and enjoy that kind of laughing, caring, and growing community?
You can. Ask us how:
Opportunities for students to wonder, learn, pray, dream, create, serve, be inspired, and be inspiring as they love God and love their neighbors. Programs for junior high (7th & 8th grade) and high school students in an inclusive and welcoming community.
Opportunities for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary students to learn stories of faith in age-appropriate ways. We want children of all ages to know they are safe, to know they are loved, and to know they are an active part of a larger story.
