Men's Group Study

Wednesday evenings at 6:45pm.  A men’s group for men 22 yrs and older… Beginning September 1, the Men’s Group is starting a new study by Sandra Richter called The Epic of Eden: Understanding the Old Testament. Through text and video teaching, Dr. Sandra Richter jumps headlong into the Old Testament to clearly and powerfully communicate a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem. Please contact Rich Hollerman at rhollerman@gmail.com if you are interested.

Disciple 1 Bible Study

Disciple 1 is a 34 week study of the whole Bible.  You will study the biblical story from Creation to the New Jerusalem spending equal time in the Old and New Testaments.   It doesn’t matter if you are new to the Bible as we all learn God’s Word together one step at a time in this course.   A study manual combined with a DVD will guide your Scripture reading with discussion facilitated by group leaders.   This discussion-based small group Bible study aims at transforming our lives by strengthening our faith.  Class starts September 15, Wednesday evening, 6:30- 8:30, led by Don Dolhi and Mark Pasek in Room 211.

MOPS/ Mom's Group

We are a group of moms with young children (newborn through elementary school) looking to make connections with other moms.  We talk about our struggles, our successes, and learn together through study and fellowship how to better manage life with young kids.  We encourage and support one another to be the best mom, spouse, and friend that we can be.  Because, let’s face it, being mom is one tough job and we could all use some extra support!  Contact the church if you are interested – info@CommunityUMChurch.com

Women's Group Study

In The Best Yes, let Lysa TerKeurst help you discern the option that shapes all your other choices. Having trouble deciding which situations deserve a “yay” and which a “nay?” Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul? Offering Scripture-laced insights on effective decision-making, she encourages you to be honest, imaginative, focused, trusting, and humble as you discover the role God most wants you to play.  Meets Wednesday mornings beginning Sept. 15th every other week for 6 sessions.
