Wesley Class Meeting (Journey Room)
In the beginning of the Methodist movement, John Wesley formed classes like this to create a place where each member could watch over one another in love. The group is designed to be a safe place to grow in the love of God and neighbor. In this group, we will not focus on a curriculum, but will dig deeply into where God is working and moving in our lives. We seek God’s transforming grace and will encourage each other to grow more like Christ. We invite you to join us on Wednesday nights from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. Facilitators: Mary Dolann and Bob Smith.

MUTTS (Men United Together Through the Spirit) (Room 504)
This group meets Saturday mornings at 7:30 a.m. Facilitators: Rick Ellsworth and Ron Haffey.
The purpose of MUTTS is to provide the men of our church community an opportunity to grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ through a variety of means including a weekly Bible study opportunity. We acknowledge that the Holy Spirit is alive within each of us constantly calling us into a deeper relationship. It is the hope that all will be challenged to become the men that God calls us to be.
Foundations of MUTTS:
- It is an open group with all men welcome.
- The focus is always the journey of faith instead of agenda driven.
- One of our principal goals through the study of Scripture is to show how the Bible is relevant to everyday experience.
- Men don’t have to be a Bible scholar to attend; we explore, learn and grow together.
- Men although encouraged don’t have to attend every week. We realize that other priorities exist.
- Men's discipleship is not exclusive to one congregation as such we promote partnership opportunities with men or men's groups from other congregations.
- We provide a means of bringing inactive and irregular church members back into fellowship.
