Small groups are considered to be a vital part of a thriving church community. The movement began in England in 1727 by Charles and John Wesley.  As the Methodist movement started congregations, moved into the United States, and became a denomination, it employed this same idea of small group ministries and of training laity to lead small groups, Bible Studies, and engage in a variety of mission work through small groups.


  • Wednesday Night Conversation with Pastor Alicia (via Zoom)

    • Join Pastor Alicia for a casual conversation, every Wednesday evening at 7pm on Zoom. Every month we take on a different topic or focus. This is a drop-in style group, open to any and all people who wish to have a brave and safe space to share and listen. Past topics have included:​

      • Race and Religion​​

      • Book studies

      • "Why Christianity"

      • Exploring Spiritual Practices

    • Small groups are also initiated by members of the church community to meet growing needs and interests. In the past we have had the following small groups which have been organized and coordinated by church members:

      • Sunday Morning Prayer Group

      • Mommy and Me Play Group

      • Youth Friday Night Movies

      • Women’s Coffee Club

Initiating a Small Group or Bible Study


We encourage those in our church community to consider initiating a small group. Please contact the pastor if you have an idea or a special interest.

Who we are, at a glance:

We welcome ALL people as a member congregation of the Reconciling Ministries Network. As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill
this obligation, we intentionally seek to remain true to our Wesleyan heritage of social justice and critical reflection of our theological and Biblical inheritance.
