Small groups bring people together. It gives us a time in which to get to know someone that we might only see at a worship service or church large group function. The focus is on friendships, common interests, and social activities. The whole point of these is to get connected to others in a Christian context.
Our Connect groups may be a time for reviewing a bible verse, sharing a devotion, socializing, and sharing with each other what Jesus means to one another. It is a time to gather together to care, share, support and have some fun with each other.
Small groups can help us develop a greater sense of Christian community in a disconnected age. They can facilitate the formation of deeper Christian friendships and encourage greater spiritual accountability. As we catch up with friends and make new ones, we practice our calling to understand and love each other.
We currently have four groups at SHUMC. Email the church office for more information.
