Adult Small Groups


Here at UMT, we strive to connect all people to Jesus through small groups of accountability and Bible study. Our small groups focus on a variety of topics and areas within the Bible while offering a safe and encouraging environment for questions and deeper searching. We aim to move together in our journey of growing in love for God and people. Through smaller groups, we simply follow the example of Jesus with his disciples and the example of the early church in Acts.
