GHUMC has approximately 5 D-Groups to attend 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.”
These words are the beginning of the most exciting journey you can ever take: the journey of Christian Discipleship. Following Jesus in a D-Group will help you to discover your spiritual gifts, unlock the power of the Holy Spirit that God has given you, and set you on a course to serve God by serving others you meet along the way.
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.
