2nd @ 1st
Small Group Hour
2nd @ 1st is the Small Group/Sunday School hour at First UMC. Our first hour on Sunday morning (whether you attended services at 8, 9, or 11am) is always dedicated to congregational worship. The second hour is a time to meet new people, deepen friendships, share life together intergenerationally, recognize how God is at work in our lives, facilitate fruitful conversation, challenge one another in practical ways, and pray together. This opportunity for discipleship takes place from 10-10:50am in various rooms throughout the church. See the descriptions below of the current groups that are meeting. Though it's preferred that you start with a group from its beginning, you can always jump in late if you're new to our church community (especially during the summer months).
The Fellowship classes is studying the Gospel of John. Join us for a classic Bible study of this Gospel.
