Despite the fast-paced and busy life, we need to be connected to a caring community where you feel like you belong. It is our goal that at Fredericksburg UMC everyone is connected to the body of Christ through small groups.
Small Groups are groups of 10-14 people that meet regularly. There are various small group opportunities at FUMC which you are encouraged to try out. Some are studies listed below and some are "Sunday School" classes (link on the right side). Either way each group is a family that come together in church and outside to grow and serve together. Feel free to check any out when you can, you don't need an invitation we are happy to have you!
For more information about education or small groups, please contact Pastor Robb.
