Sunday School Classes

We have a variety of Sunday School classes to meet the needs of our diverse membership.  It is our desire that every person who walks in our doors can find a small group that they feel comfortable in and will learn about and grow in Christ. We invite you to visit our Welcome Center where caring volunteers can assist you in finding the group that best fits your needs.   


Small Group Ministry

Whether you want to explore the Christian faith or deepen your existing faith, small groups are a great place to connect. They help to make the discovery satisfying and the journey enjoyable. During the school year, small groups are offered on a variety of days and times including two options Wednesday night ACTION. Join us as we study together.


United Methodist Women

Open to all women of the church, this group supports programs globally and locally to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for women, children, and youth.  Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. and consist of official business of the UMW, programs, and refreshments.   


Men's Breakfast

Meets each Saturday morning at 7:30.  A group of men meet each week for fellowship at The Vault for a time of fellowship and prayer.


Women's Bible Study

This group of warm, caring ladies meets  every Tuesday morning during the school year at the church to learn from God’s Word.  They are currently completing a study of the minor prophets with the help of Warren Wiersbe’s book Be Concerned.  Baby sitting is available if contacted prior to the meeting day.


Walk to Emmaus

Held at Camp Jericho in Pulley's Mill.  A highly structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them their families, congregations and the world in which they live. Emmaus is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.  They try o be hold walks twice a year for men and women. Contact: the church and/or Rev. Mike Mayfield


Opportunities to Serve

Want to do more? Feel like you might be called to teach? To help with the leadership of the ministry? Every year new leadership positions become available at Aldersgate. Our needs are as diverse as the church itself.  Many of our ministries would welcome an additional hand.  We often need someone willing to teach a Sunday School Class, whether as a substitute for the regular teacher, as a short term, break away class instructor, or as a long term leader.  Our youth program would love to have additional people willing to invest in the life of our teens.  Each fall, we look for people willing to become members of our various committees.  If you have been regularly attending the church for awhile, and have benefited from its ministry, perhaps God is calling you to participate in service within the ministry of the church.
