Daily Word   Reflections from Romans 15:

God set me afire in 2015. Stir me, I pray. Do not let me become complacent. Let others see your passion for transformation through me and may they jump in with both feet. When I am tired give me rest. Enable me to live so close to you that your will shall be my only desire.

Small Groups at VUMC

Why small groups? To see every person, from the core of our church to the ever-growing community, connected in a healthy small group. You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at VUMC, we encourage you to get into a small group. You’ll hear me say that we need to be intentional about our faith development.

By choosing to be involved in a small group, you are being intentional. A small group at VUMC is a group of three or more people who gather each week in a home, workplace, or church. In a group you’ll hang out, study the Word, and pray together. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you.
