No matter where we are in our lives, we know that Christians have to grow in our knowledge, in our faith, and in our spirituality.  The best way to do that is to become connected to other Christians through small groups.  Worship alone will not help us in this.  We need a place where we can talk, ask questions, and share our life experiences.  Varnell UMC has many opportunities for you to begin on your spiritual journey.  We want you to know that the members of this church are happy to walk with you every step of the way.  Explore the different groups on this page which offer new and deeper learning experiences, fellowship, and meaningful connections.

Your journey is unique, and we want you to know that you belong regardless of where you are in your life. So connect with us – you are welcome here!  The following is a list of the small groups we have for the adults in the church.  If you would like to see what is available for CHILDREN and YOUTH, just click on the links to see the information about those ministries.
