“The glory of God is humanity fully alive.” St. Ireneaus
Almost every day of the week at Oxford – University United Methodist Church, someone is gathering to break bread, to fellowship, to pray, or to read scripture. We do these things in order to learn from Jesus what it looks like to be fully alive.
OU is a place where you will be welcomed wherever you find yourself on your spiritual journey. If you have questions and doubts you can’t express in most churches or if you have a desire to grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus, we have a place for you!
If you have any questions about adult ministry or would like more information about how to connect to a group, contact Chris at email@example.com.
We’d love to get you involved in a small group. Please fill out this brief form, and someone will be in touch!
A LifeGroup is a gathering of between 10-12 people who meet once a month (or more) for food and fellowship, study, discussion, and prayer. It will be a great way for us to maintain connection and community as a Body of Christ during construction.
What should I Expect?
Ideally, our LifeGroups meet in the home of one of the group members who has volunteered to host and can accommodate the size of the group.
LifeGroups will meet once a month for about an hour-and-a-half.
5:30 p.m. Food (snacks or more)
6:00 p.m. Study & discussion
6.50 p.m. Prayer
7:00 p.m. End
What will be expected of me?
We encourage everyone to participate as much as they feel comfortable. You will not be put on the spot or expected to speak or pray aloud. Volunteers who feel comfortable doing so will be leading the discussion or hosting the evening.
What about my children?
When you sign up for a LifeGroup, you can also sign your child up for one (up to sixth grade). We will meet at the church and provide food, fellowship, and prayer. Drop off at 5.15 p.m. and pick up by 7.15 p.m.
For more info on LifeGroups, please email Chris McAlilly, firstname.lastname@example.org.
