How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.


Small Groups 

Small groups provide an opportunity for members to connect with one another through 
fellowship, worship, discipleship and ministry.   We are in the process of starting small
groups.  We currently have two small groups.  Pastor Claudia leads a women’s small
group and Kaye and Scott Watts lead a couple’s small group.   If you are interested in
starting a small group or participating in one, please reach out to

United Methodist Women/United Women in Faith Group

We seek to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.  Joined together by a common faith and single-minded purpose, our organization further expanded when the Ladies’ Aid societies were started in the early 1900s.  In 1972, United Methodist Women first became the women’s mission organization as part of The United Methodist Church’s Board of Global Ministries.  And in 2012, The United Methodist Church General Conference voted to make United Methodist Women’s national policymaking body autonomous.  Today, we mark the beginning of a new era.  As United Women in Faith, we stand ready to not only continue our legacy but forge courageous new paths.  We will go wherever we are needed, without hesitation, because the needs are great but our power, our resolve and our faith are even greater.   Our local unit meets on the second Monday of each month at 11:30 for a group fellowship meal with a meeting to follow.  We do conduct business, but we also plan projects, have a spiritually based program, create fundraising opportunities, and provide donations to faith-based initiatives.  POC:  Susan Cross (

Quilting Group
