Community Groups at VUMC
God created all humans 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. Out church currently has several small groups within our church and community. From in-home groups to Bible study and prayer groups. God has placed on our heart a strong desire to see that every church attendee and visitor becomes involved in a community group.
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
