Small Groups at CUMC
Small Groups are a wonderful way to connect with other adults on a regular basis for biblical study, fellowship, care and support on your faith journey. Centreville UMC currently has 13 adult small groups which meet regularly, listed below with details and contact information for each group.
Due to the ongoing Corona Virus situation, we are not putting out a fall Journey Catalog. However, some classes will still be offered.

Crossroads: a small group at Centreville United Methodist Church. "We are a mix of adults, primarily in our thirties and forties. We bring together many perspectives: male and female, single and married, couples and families, natives and transplants, lifelong Methodists and newer believers, and a varied background of educational, professional and life experiences. Despite our differences, we are all seeking something bigger in our busy lives. Crossroads helps keep us on a faith-focused path and deepens our relationship with Jesus Christ. Through a monthly mix of Bible and book studies, mission projects and family-friendly fellowship activities, we have a bond of friendship that holds each other in prayer during the ups and downs of our daily lives."
Food, Fun, and Fellowship: a group for adults seeking a small fellowship group at CUMC. Typically about 6-9 adults per group (couples or singles welcome). Meetings are often built around a meal in homes or restaurants but could include activities such as a sports event, a hike, or just gather for snacks. The intent is to re-start 2-3 times a year to change group participants. Meets monthly or as determined by each group. Occasionally, we all meet together and then divide up into small groups for several months at a time to get to know each other before changing participants and starting a new season. Contact Dan Stapleton firstname.lastname@example.org or Valynn Westfall email@example.com for more information.
