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.

Senior Connections – a fellowship group, welcomes all of those over 60 to join in our activities and adventures.  We hope you enjoy what we have planned for this year:

  • PICNIC POPS On July 13th, Senior Connections will gather at Cannonsburg Ski Area to enjoy the Grand Rapids Symphony’s presentation of the Music of Abba.  You will recognize most of the songs they play.  We will have people there early the evening of July 13th to save an area near the bottom of the hill from where you can enjoy your picnic and favorite summertime beverage with your favorite friends. The music begins at 7:30 pm but we hope to be setup around 6:00. We are able to purchase books of 6 flex pass tickets, with tickets being $14 each.  We will need to have your commitment for these tickets by July 6th.  To sign up for tickets or for questions, call Jim and Linda Larson at 8836249.  We are looking forward to a fun and rain free evening!

Upcoming events include: a deck party barbecue at the Barnes-Terranova home, a golf outing, a bonfire at the Jensen home, and a Christmas Party at the Larson Home.  Please watch the bulletin board above the water fountain near the restrooms for the Senior Connections announcements. We look forward to spending time with you!
