Small Groups

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:42

John Wesley believed that Christians are always moving to perfection in faith. As part of that journey, Wesley believed that small groups were essential. UUMC is home to numerous small groups that embrace the concept of Scripture study, accountability, and fellowship. Some of our groups are “covenant” in nature: they agree to meet and share the trials and blessings of a faith journey. Some of our groups are “Wesley” groups: they meet weekly to study Scripture, frequently studying in advance the Scripture which will be read in worship on Sunday. We have groups that are all women, all men, and couples. UUMC want to nurture and grow new groups! If you are interested in joining a new group, please let Rev. Dr. Jane Riecke ( or 344-0343 ext. 13) or Rev. Colleen Bookter ( know and we will meet to determine what times and days are best!
