Weekday Grow Groups

There are several great options available for you to grow in your faith during the week at Bethlehem First UMC. Because we know people's schedules vary, we hope you are able to get connected to one of our Weekday Grow Groups that fits best with your schedule. There are groups that meet all throughout the week at different times of the day. Most of our groups meet on the church campus, but there may be some that meet in a host home or at various spots around the community. If you have never tried a Grow Group, let us know and we will be happy to help you find the best fit for your stage of life. If you have any questions and/or want to discover more about our Weekday Grow Groups, please contact Rev. Megan Gomez in the church office.

6 weeks. 6:30-8:00 pm

Divided is a 6 week grow group based on the book United Methodists Divided by Dale McConkey. "It is not an overstatement to say that the United Methodist Church is facing the biggest crisis of its 50-year history. At the center of the controversy is a debate over the church’s stance toward homosexuality. United Methodists Divided provides a fair and impartial overview of the major issues facing the church as it approaches a special session of General Conference in February 2019, where the fate of the denomination will be determined" (taken from the book). Participants will need to purchase a copy of this book. No childcare is available.
