Sunday Mornings

Grab a cup of coffee and gather with others to study God's Word beginning on Sunday, April 16, from 10:20 - 11:00 AM (between worship services) in the Chapel.  Grab a cup of coffee and join us for "God's Word Today," where we will reflect on the day's scripture readings from worship.

There are six sessions planned for this gathering, which will take place every Sunday through May 21.  Each session is independent of the others, so feel free to come to whatever sessions work with your schedule.

The discussion sessions will be led by Rev. Robert "Buzz" Moore, a retired United Methodist Pastor who has served in the Virginia Conference for over 50 years.

Ongoing 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 has many adult small groups which meet regularly, listed below with details and contact information for each group.

If you would like to start a new small group, contact Pastor Geitra Mickelson at

Young Adult Ministry

Young adults (20s and 30s) are welcome to join this group, which meets on Sundays from 12:30-1:45 PM in room 209.  The group just began exploring foundational questions about the Bible - what is it exactly, and how do we understand and interpret scripture? Using the book study for "Making Sense of the Bible" by Adam Hamilton, they will examine challenging passages and topics.   This current study runs from April 16-June 11.  Click here to read more about the current study.
