North Broadway United Methodist Church

Connections: Small Groups

Sunday Small Groups at 9:45 am

Forum Class, Rm. 111: A topical class with occasional guest speakers, book studies, and topical conversations. Facilitator: Jeff Caswell.

New Life Clas, Rm. 201: A Weekly Bible Study using The New International Lesson Series.  Leader: Rev. Susan Kyser

Discovery Class: Rm. 203: The Discovery Class is a multigenerational community of individuals who share an interest in understanding and becoming more fully human and spiritually aware by exploring the contemporary to ancient wisdoms of the Christian tradition as well as that of other faith/spirit traditions. We also seek ways to incorporate that wisdom and awareness into our daily lives and draw on it to inform our understanding of social issues and our actions to address them.
We share responsibility for teaching the class and each week a class member takes responsibility for leading the discussion they might have a passion for, experience with, or a desire to study and then share with the class. The class seeks to be open and welcoming and invites individuals to join us for a particular class of interest or to become an active participant in our ongoing and evolving conversation.

DIVAs – DIVA (Doing Inspirational and Valuable Activities) is a group that was born out of a need among women in the church for sisterhood and fellowship. We are a dynamic and diverse group that is as devoted to each other as we are to serving the communities in which we live. Some activities include: NBUMC Block Party, Adopt-a-Class, DIVAs retreat, Habitat for Humanity, NBUMC/NBCC Trunk or Treat, and more!
