Growth Groups

GROW in your relationship with God and others

Growing as a disciple of Jesus is a lifelong journey of transformation by the grace of God. We want to help you grow in your relationship and love with God, other Christians, and your neighbors. And we believe that the best way to grow as a disciple is alongside of others.

New Ways to Connect!

Below are a few  ways you can GROW with us this summer.  While we are distanced, we can still connect and grow together. 
You can join a Sunday School online, join our Pastors as they chat with us on Wednesday evenings and coming soon - a series on Race and the Church - don't miss out!

Sunday School at 9:15 am  - Solomon's Porch

This empty nesters and beyond class enjoys coming together and having fun while growing in faith. Now is the perfect time to join us as we begin a new study! Email John Allen at to get the link to join us over Zoom!

Wednesday Night LIVE Bible Study is starting again June 24

Our pastors will be back with a LIVE Bible Study each Wednesday night starting June 24 at 7 pm. They'll be covering a variety of topics that they are excited about - might be the sermon, might be an open topic, etc. - lots of excitement is in store. 

COMING SOON: Race and the Church Series

Like many of you, we are moved by what is happening in our world around us. Too often, Christians have been quiet about difficult topics. Maybe you are wondering how your faith intersects with what we see in the world around us. Maybe you don't know where to begin to make a difference. We have prayerfully decided to offer a multi-week learning experience on Race and the Church. Our goal is to help better equip our congregation with educational opportunities and tools to be more faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We are honored to bring you presenters from varying backgrounds as we learn together how to be a better church for our world. Topics will include panel discussions on race, educational conversations on how to talk to your kids and your friends about racism and discrimination, and the history of race and the American Church.  Through it all we will seek to hear voices that are different from our own as we grow together to be more Christ-like.

LifeGroups help people connect relationally and grow spiritually through intentional times of fellowship, study, and support together. Groups typically meet in people’s homes for an hour and a half to two hours at least every other week.  
Each LifeGroup is unique, but during gatherings groups typically:
  • Fellowship: Meet regularly and share what’s going on in one another’s lives
  • Grow: Discuss the Bible or book that the group decides on
  • Support: Pray for one another, their families, and the community
  • Serve: Actively seek out ways to serve God and others in the community together

Wednesday Nights at HMUMC
