“Where two or more are gathered, there I am”
Have you ever felt like just attending worship once a week doesn’t quite fill you up spiritually? Connecting with a small group within a big church can, as one member describes, transform a “black and white” church experience into a full color spiritual adventure. From drop-in service opportunities to longer-term covenant groups, you are welcome to join any of the adult fellowship groups below.
Fellowship group meets Wednesdays 7:30 am at The Broken Egg. Contact: Mary Danforth, email@example.com or 734-649-4849.
Dinner for 8

Nancy Lynn, firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-662-4536.

NEW! Neighborhood Care Groups
Would you like to know who your FUMC neighbors are? Every family in the church has been assigned to a Neighborhood Care Group (NCG) with other church families in their neighborhood. Each NCG is made up of approximately 8-12 households, and new members are always welcome. The groups meet occasionally for social events but also help care for each other and welcome church newcomers from their neighborhoods. The groups cover areas as far as Belleville and Brighton so distance is not an issue. All ages and stages of life, members and non-members, are all welcome. To join a group or with questions, email email@example.com.
Second Saturday Group
Families with kids elementary to teen, meeting in homes for dinner, sharing, and DVD or book study. Teens and kids socialize while parents meet. Visit us and we’ll help launch more groups like ours. Contact: Pam Stout, firstname.lastname@example.org or 995-1405.
Second Quartile is a group for people around or between the ages of 25 and 50 who meet twice monthly for fun social, educational, and service activities. We share responsibility for planning events.
