Discipleship Small Groups (D-Groups)
GHUMC has approximately 6 D-Groups that occur at different times and days of the week. D-Groups are fun, as well as challenging, and a place to meet Christ AND a place to grow into Christ-likeness. Jesus said, “Come and follow me.”
John Wesley created D-Groups (he called them Class Meetings – not a very exciting name!) modeled on the first Christian small group of Jesus and his disciples. D-Groups are where the Christian rubber meets the road in your life. Meeting in homes, we pray, study, share our lives, support, encourage, care for and strengthen one another as we try to live lives that honor God and make real God’s love for others.
Email the office if you are interested in a D-group and would like to help start a new one.

Purpose of United Methodist Women
The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
