Small Groups

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here are some ways you can learn, serve, and grow at MCUMC. Please contact the church office with any questions or if you’d like more information about any of these groups.

Prayer Group
Everyone is invited to gather on Monday mornings at 9:30 for a time of devotion, prayer, and connection. 

Bible Study
We currently have two groups meeting – one at 11am on Tuesday mornings and the other at 7pm on Wednesday evenings. These groups do Bible, book, or topical studies in order to grow in faith and encourage one another in discipleship. Bible study groups are open to all so please come when you can.

Men’s Group
Our men’s group meets once a week on Thursday evenings at 7pm to laugh, pray, and encourage in each other in faith. 

Couples Group
The Homebuilders Couples group meets the second and fourth Fridays of each month rotating between each other’s homes. They share a meal, a Bible-based discussion, and lots of laughter together!


Youth Group

HYPE is the name of the ministry for and with youth. HYPE stands for Helping Youth Proclaim Emmanuel and the youth are as much ministers in this ministry as any of the adult leaders are. We are a part of a cluster of local United Methodist Churches who are working together to build the body of Christ in our communities. You are welcome into this energetic, creative community! For more information about HYPE and other youth activities and events at Mays Chapel UMC, please check out the Kids and Youth page.
