Whether you are new to HPCUMC or you have been hanging around waiting for an opportunity, there is a group for you.

Adult Ministry

Connect Groups

Join a Connect Group today to grow deeper in faith and community! To get connected or to start a new small group, contact Rev. Dave Weaver

Connect Groups are  people who come together to build relationships through encouragement, accountability, guidance, and prayer. Every Connect Group consists of 5 essential ingredients: fellowship, worship and prayer, study, accountability, and mission or outreach.

Groups are made up of women, men, couples, singles or mixed groups. The groups usually meet once a week or twice a month to study the scriptures, engage in Christian conversation and fellowship, pray with and for one another, and serve in ministry/mission.

Weekday Study Classes

Groups for learning meet throughout the week. These groups combine fellowship, study, and sharing in a comfortable friendly atmosphere. For more information and classes available please contact Dave Weaver.
