Classes and Groups
 
We make a big deal out of groups because, simply put, we are better together! We believe small groups are the perfect place to be real, find belonging, and grow in faith. There is great richness in life when we live it in relationship with one another.
 
Check out the groups below, email the contact person for more information, and meet some of the amazing people who make up the First United Methodist Church family!  Many of our classes are hybrid if you want to join online or in person!
