Small Groups

Small Groups are offered for adults.  Here is a listing of some of the things offered.  If you have an interest in any of these groups, please contact the church office.

RUMC Adult Group  This is a group for adults at RUMC who want to get to know other adults in the church. It’s a place for socializing with your church family and for getting to know adults who want more for their church. Our vision for this group is that once people begin to get to know each other and create connections, they can then define what other things they’d like to pursue. Maybe it’s a small group spin off, marriage course, softball team, monthly dinner meeting, coffee; whatever it is, we want for God to be able to move and help us to become a real “family of God.”

God wants more for us than Sunday handshakes, brief conversations and forgetting each other’s names. God wants us to struggle together, celebrate together and grow in His word together. We hope this RUMC Adults group will help us do that!  Contact Suzi Richards with ideas for future meetings.
