AdultGROUPS


Doing Life Together

Life Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one-another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.

Women's Book Club

("Booklettes")

Besides great discussions, the Cheshire UMC women’s book club offer a warm time of fellowship and fun in the homes of its members.  The group reads a variety of books.… bestsellers, classics, fiction, and non-fiction on various topics. The women’s group, Booklettes, gathers every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm.  The ladies enjoy lively conversation and although we sometimes get off topic, we do manage to have meaningful discussions about our monthly reads. In August, both groups will gather at the home of a member for a BBQ and swimming. You do not have to have read the book to attend as we understand that at times busy lives get in the way of finishing a book. This is a good way to meet new people in a small group setting and we warmly welcome all!

Something New

The Something New Group concept was devised to provide an opportunity for those who wanted to gather in casual conversation during the day over a cup of coffee or tea with no other necessary thing to bring or do and with no agenda. It is for both men and women of all age groups and from all walks of life! The group meets the 4th Tuesday of each month at the church at 11:00 AM.

Chris Driscoll, Ginny Ludwig, and Marge Jordan are the coordinators and organizers.
