Are you looking for a way to get connected to other people within the Christian Community? The Group Ministries at Pocatello First United Methodist Church provide opportunities for spiritual growth, friendship and community with one another.

We believe our group ministry plays a vital role in growing our relationship with God and the discipleship process. By Connecting with others, our spiritual journey is supported, encouraged, challenged and celebrated.

 

Each Group reflects the individuality of its members, interests and stage in life. Most groups include fellowship, Bible study and prayer. Topics, meeting schedules and meeting locations vary within the various  Groups. Many times  groups recognize the various gifts and interests of their members and utilize their collective passion and energy to provide service to the greater community. Groups give opportunities to express the “overflow” of what God is doing in our lives.
