Adult Sunday Small Groups

At Bear Creek UMC there are numerous opportunities for adults to be involved in the life of our church! Our Adult Small Groups start at 8am on Sunday mornings, with a majority meeting at 10:10am. Take a look at the schedule below to find one that interests you!

Sunday school is an important facet of the Church’s life. In the smaller groups, friendships are formed and relationships are built.

As busy as we all are, when we commit an hour per week for worship and another hour for study on Sunday, it can make such a difference in the rest of our week! But just like everything else we do, it takes a first step!

Guests are Welcome!

United Methodist Women (UMW)

We invite you to be a part of a dynamic group of women who are learning, growing spiritually and sharing their faith through special events, small group circles, Bible studies, and retreats. The UMW small groups are called Circles where you can grow and share with each other. All women of Bear Creek UMC are members of the UMW, whether you are affiliated with a “circle” or not. Our women raise funds each year through various events to help women and children throughout this community and the world. Get connected with women who are giving of themselves in personal relationships with other women and in personal relationship with God. Guests are also welcome to bring friends.

Please join us for any and all events, including circle meetings whenever you are available. Each and every one of the current circles would love to have you join and participate with them. But if one of these doesn’t work for you, perhaps you can gather a few others and start another. Come and join the fun!
