Small Groups Together

Small Groups is a ministry of Christ United Methodist Church.  The mission is to provide opportunities for study within groups of 12-15 persons, whereby strong bonds are formed that promote fellowship and trust among believers.  To get connected with a small group see Carol Yarian or email her at carol@christumchurch.org.  You can also get connected by calling the church office at 474-4313.
