Community Groups at VUMC

We need to be in community with each other. Jesus saw the need for this and the early church began in homes and communities. People need people. We cannot do life alone. We currently have several small groups within our church and community. From in-home groups to Bible study and prayer groups. God has placed on my heart a strong desire to see to it that every church attendee and visitor is involved in a community group. There is a listing in the bulletin of all of the community group opportunities we have at VUMC.
Why join a VUMC community group?
• Fellowship caring for one another emotionally, spiritually and physically
• Ministry taking on a mission project either in the church or in the community
• Worship praying and possibly even singing together
• Discipleship studying God's word and applying it to life together
