Life Groups, Small Groups and Learning Communities

At Marysville First United Methodist, we believe that there is both Biblical and practical support for the existence of small groups within the local church. In the Old Testament, God dealt with Israel on a national level; however, He also addressed needs on a reduced level via the establishment of tribes, families/clans and households. In the New Testament, the life of Jesus, and His prioritization of small groups, presents a convincing rationale for the benefit of involvement in this capacity. Furthermore, the experiences of the early church demonstrate the profound value of small groups in meeting the identified needs of individuals.

Purpose for small Communities

Life groups, small groups, and learning communities are a meaningful way to connect in the Body of Christ.  It is tough to have a deep relationship by merely attending church services.  In smaller communities real relationships are built as you study together, share life together, have open/honest conversations and serve together.  As we follow Christ TOGETHER "iron sharpens iron" and life giving friendships emerge and true discipleship takes place.  We become disciples that help make disciples! 

  • PUrsuit of God

    In small communities we can actively grow in our relationship with God through worship, Bible study and encouraging each other to walk in obedience.  We can learn what it means to follow Jesus.  

  • Transparent Connections

    Small community members are real and authentic with each other.  Through study, sharing life and having FUN we can move beyond superficial relationships and be ourselves.   

  • authentic service

    This means that groups find tangible ways of spreading Christ's love by serving our communities and engaging with non-Christians in real friendships on a regular basis.  The possibilities are endless!  The main goal is to make serving the way of life!  

  • Growing Together

    As in nature, anything living is either growing or dying.  It is important for groups to multiply and reproduce.  We accomplish this by being open to accepting new members and inviting others to join us!  We also birth new groups as the need arises because we want everyone to be blessed by the joy of growing together!
