Want to grow in faith? Think small!
Small groups, that is.
Small groups help us fill two simple needs in our design: we need God and we need each other—and we need both more than just on Sunday mornings!
The essence of small groups can be found in the beginnings of Methodism itself, when “classes,” groups of about twelve, would meet weekly for prayer, Bible study, and mutual encouragement.
In fact, Jesus founded the ultimate small group: using Scripture and prayer as His guide, He shared stories and lessons, listened to his group, attended to their needs, and welcomed newcomers. And together, they grew in faith and helped others. Can there be any better inspiration?
We have a variety of short-term and continuing small groups. Prayerfully consider joining us as we grow in faith!
If you're interested in being a part of one of our groups, have an idea for a group, or would even like to lead one!—please contact me for more information.

Mid-Atlantic Methodist History
As United Methodists we are blessed to live in a region so full of our denomination’s history . The United Methodist Church and its precursors have deep roots in our immediate area,
and Grace is offering a small group focused on the story of Methodists in the Delmarva Peninsula and the greater Baltimore area. We will remember the struggles and milestones of our forebears as they
sought to spread the Gospel in our region. We will also take a field trip to Baltimore to visit several historic United Methodist churches. The group meets
for three Tuesdays starting on May 14th; our field trip is scheduled at 8:00am on Saturday, May 18th to recognize Pentecost and Aldersgate Day.
