Welcome to the family!

Adult Sunday School

Our Church has an active Adult Sunday School class that meets each Sunday at 9:00 am, September through May.

Short-term Bible studies are offered seasonally.

Please check the current newsletter or church calendar for details.

Coffee Talk

Join Pastor Kim and fellow friends on Wednesday mornings for coffee and conversation at a local cafe in De Soto.

Agape Circle

Agape is a gathering of women to authentically connect with one another. We collectively choose a topic, book or study to discuss.

By doing so we’re strengthening our relationships with God & each other.

We meet the first Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at Linda Rumsey’s house.

United Methodist Men

The mission of the United Methodist Men’s organization is, simply, to help our Methodist Men grow in Christ.

How do we do that at our church? We do that by following Christ’s teachings to:  “love one another as I have loved you”. 

On the 3rd Saturday morning of each month, our Methodist Men gather together for about 1 hour (8:00 am – 9:00 am) at a breakfast fellowship to socialize and better acquaint ourselves with each other.

A devotional is also presented, allowing us to comment freely about how it may or may not pertain to our own lives.  Our Methodist Men’s organization also provides financial assistance to our church and community and labor for projects.

If you would like to find out more about joining the United Methodist Men, please contact Jim Walker at [email protected].
