Adult Ministries

Our Ministry Model

Gather

Throughout the year, we have events specifically designed for women and men to meet new people and invite their friends, family, and neighbors to see what First Methodist is all about. See what Gather events are coming up soon.

Grow

At First Methodist, we know that we need one another. We also know how it feels to be new. One of the easiest ways to get connected is through our Core Groups. Each new round of Core Groups brings four to six people together for a six week study. Core Groups are short-term commitments with long-term effects. They help us form connections beyond the superficial and identify gifts and callings. Sign up for a Core Group here!

Go

Whether it’s a block party to reach out to the neighborhood or taking the gospel to an unreached people group across the ocean, God calls us to go beyond ourselves. He has a plan for us to serve in the church and go to those outside the church, utilizing our gifts and callings as well as mentoring others along the way. We are continually gathering, growing and going together so that we can fill every neighborhood with the good news of God’s love. Learn more about our Go opportunities.

Sunday Classes

Our Sunday classes are one of the ways we can live life together in community as we strive to be more like Jesus. We offer two identical worship services at 9 and 10:30 a.m. and we have Sunday classes for adults and children available at both hours.

Our END Zone (grades 5-6) and Youth (grades 7-12) are only meeting at 9 a.m. and attending the 10:30 a.m. worship service.
