Looking for a new way to plug in, meet new people, and dive deeper into what you hear on Sundays? Sign up now to join one of several Connection Groups. Groups will meet on various days, at locations of their choosing, either every week or every other week. Some will meet for just a few months, after which time participants may take a break or move to another group. Others are ongoing. This is a great way to meet others and share meaningful discussions, as you strengthen your faith and deepen your knowledge of God’s word.
There are several ongoing Connection Groups:
MUMC Women Age range: 18+ Meets: monthly, with some occasional additional events
This new ministry at MUMC will meet year ‘round, on a monthly basis. In addition to discipleship, participants will enjoy opportunities for fellowship and service inside the church and out in the community.
We’re excited to be planning a Women’s Retreat in late January: “Sweet Life Cafe.”
Sign up 11/13 – 12/5: $185
For more information on the retreat, contact: Karen Vis

Beginning Nov. 7, 2017, a six-part study, “Advent of the Savior,” will introduce you to the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus, remind you of God’s faithfulness and power to fulfill his promises, and draw you more deeply into the love that brought Christ to earth.
“GOD’S EXTENDED FAMILY” BIBLE STUDY
Men/Women Age range: Any Meets: Weekly, Wednesdays 10 – noon
For 2017, this group is working its way through “The Story,” the widely-acclaimed abridged chronological Bible that reads like a novel. The unusual style enables readers to understand God’s word more fully, and engage with it more easily. We enjoy snacks and fellowship before the start of each gathering.
