Do no harm. Do good. Stay in love with God. These are foundational beliefs in Methodism, and we believe that small groups are an integral part of our spiritual development. They provide a safe and intimate space for us to pursue those pillars of faith and build relationships. You’re welcome to settle into one, or rotate in and out as wanted. Explore our list of topical groups below—and please feel free to reach out to Pastor Wendy at 614-268-8221 or with questions.
