Here are some ways that you can take part in the life of church.
Small Groups at Fredericktown UMC
We have several ways that you can get involved in a small group at Fredericktown UMC. The first way is to join us on Sunday mornings. We have small groups for all ages between our two worship services at 10 AM. The second way is to join one of our other small groups that meet throughout the week. The available small groups are:
Sunday Nights at 6:00 pm starting September 22 - Youth Small Group Room
Confirm Your Faith. Your Commitment. God’s Call. Too often confirmation has been downgraded to the role of a checkpoint along the faith journey. The Confirm confirmation group reclaims confirmation as the first step on a journey that leads to a mature faith. Confirm treats confirmation as more than a decision. Instead, it is the beginning of a conversation about what it means to be a Christian, living out your faith, your commitment, and God’s call. If you have a young person from 5th grade and up that hasn’t been through confirmation and is interested, please contact us and let us know!
God’s love in motion - a reconciling community
The first monday of the month at 7:00 PM - Fellowship Hall
This small group is our Reconciling Community within Fredericktown United Methodist Church. A reconciling community is one that has approved a statement that specifically names a welcome of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Churches, Sunday School classes, campus ministries, and annual conference groups strengthen the Reconciling Ministries Network through their witness for a fully inclusive church. This community will be working for ways that we can be welcoming and inclusive to all. All are welcome at this small group, no matter if you are a member of Fredericktown UMC or not. It will take place the first Monday of the month, unless there is a holiday on the day or close by. If that is the case, it will be moved to another Monday. Please refer to our calendar for the latest dates.
first wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm - Fellowship Hall
Every month, on the first Wednesday of the month, we will get together for a special event in our fellowship hall. Sometimes it might be a mini-worship experience, sometimes it might be pizza and a movie, and other times it might be something completely different! Join us in fellowship as we take part in our First Wednesday experiences! All are welcome at this small group, no matter if you are a member of Fredericktown UMC or not.
Food & Faith
Last Wednesday of the Month at 6:30 PM - The Depot Restaurant in Fredericktown
This is a group that will be meeting at The Depot Restaurant here in town. We will have food and drink together while talking over a different discussion topic every meeting. The topics will typically be more contemporary and relevant. Each person will be responsible for their own meal. This group will last about an hour and a half, depending on the food and conversation that week. All are welcome at this small group, no matter if you are a member of Fredericktown UMC or not. However, please let us know if you are interested by contacting Pastor Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can be sure to save you a seat. On months when there is a holiday or other important event on the last Thursday of the month, it will be moved to the previous Thursday. Please see our calendar for exact days and times.
We hope that you will join us at one of our small groups for fun and fellowship as we grow together!
