Small Group Ministries at FUMC







FUMC offers a dynamic lineup of small groups for every age and interest. While most groups meet on Wednesday evening, there are several that meet throughout the week and month that may better fit your schedule.  

See below for our full lineup. We hope you'll dive in as we draw near to each other and Jesus Christ each week!

  • Bible Exploration for kids

    January 24 & January 31 from 11 am - 1 pm

    We invite your 3rd, 4th and 5th grader to participate in a two-week overview of how to use and read the Bible. Students will enjoy lunch, play games, and do activities that will familiarize themselves with the Bible. After they complete this study, students will be presented with their own Bible, a United Methodist tradition.

  • Starting Point

    TBD - This group will meet once in-person worship resumes

    Everything has a beginning. Every person, every idea, every journey starts somewhere. Whether it's one small step in a new direction or a major event, from that point forward nothing is ever the same. It's not always comfortable. It's not always easy. But it's a start.

    This new group will meet Sundays after church in the Fellowship Hall at 11 am. A video will be sent each Monday for participants to watch throughout the week followed by a group discussion on Sunday.

  • FUMC Home Groups

    Home Groups are one of the ways we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ. God created each of us for relationships - with him and one another. It's through relationships that we find connection, friendship, and growth. 

    Joining a group is one of the best ways to experience these things! Locations include Gulfport (Second Street Area), Biloxi, Pass Christian, the SeaBee Base and the Orange Grove/Saucier area. Contact Tracey Capelety for more information.

  • United Methodist Men

    Second Saturday of the month

    The Methodist Men are a group of fellows that feel called to be a part of the life of the church behind the scenes. The men work with church members in need of handy-man-type assistance as well as working on projects in the community.  They also have "work" projects from the church Trustees.  UMM meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at 7:30 am for breakfast, then conduct business and have a monthly speaker.  They extend a personal invitation to all Methodist Men to come and enjoy breakfast and find ways that they might use their God-given talents to serve others.  Contact our church office to learn more: 228.863.0047.
