Adult Small Groups

Small Groups

A small group is an intentional community gathered around a common interest for the purpose of growing in our faith and mission together. At Hixson UMC, we invite each and every person to join a small group or Sunday School class; not just as activity to add to your schedule, but as something that offers life and meaning to everything else on in your schedule. 

 

Below is a list of current small groups and Bible studies, grouped by type. Childcare is offered during classes on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings (other times by request). Click on the links below or scroll through the entire list.

Each Sunday adults gather in various classes to grow together in Christian faith and community. These classes are more than just your average Sunday School, they are "Life Groups" -- Christian brothers and sisters gathering to share life; loving, supporting, learning and serving together. Each class offers a unique style of study and growth. We currently have 15 Sunday School Life Groups.
