CHURCH GROUPS

MEET NEW PEOPLE AND GROW SPIRITUALLY



Piece Makers Group

A Quick Review

Spiritual growth does not only happen in worship services but often occurs in small group gatherings. We believe it is important to get involved in church groups and Sunday School in order to connect with God and grow in our faith. We recognize that everyone has different needs and interests. To make sure you find people who identify with you and your interests, we have created several church groups within First UMC Colleyville. Each group has a different area of interests, learning styles, activities they engage in, and roles they play within the church. If you do not find a group that interests you, then you may have an opportunity to bring something new to the church. You could be the creator of our new hiking group, cycling, foodies united- the possibilities are endless, as long as the group aligns with our church mission and vision.

Piece Maker’s Quilters Group

Our Piece Maker’s Quilters Group gathers every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. in FL 105 and 106 to work on quilting projects for personal use and charity. Some of the non-profit organizations we support are ABC Quilts for abused children, pillowcases for Cook Children’s Hospital, and Quilts of Valor for wounded service men and women. We also help support the church wide Holiday Extravaganza in the fall. We welcome anyone interested in quilting to join them on Tuesday mornings for a wonderful time of fellowship and quilting. No experience in quilting is required.

Prayer Team

At FUMC Collevyille, we believe in the power of prayer. As James 5:16 states, “the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Our prayer team meets Mondays at 10:30 a.m. in the Basset Conference Room to pray for our congregation, community, and world. This group is led by Pastor Katie, and we welcome anyone who has a passion for prayer.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay caring ministry that equips and empowers lay caregivers to minister to people going through a difficult time in life. Stephen Ministers are laypersons who are especially trained and equipped to touch people in a practical, tangible way with the love and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. Stephen Ministers and those for whom they care look to Christ as the source of all hope, healing and renewal. Stephen Ministers are trained to use the tools of the Christian faith- the Bible, prayer, witness and blessing- as they care for the needs of people. While Stephen Ministers have access to and can refer people to professional caregivers, they are not social workers or therapists, rather they are people who listen and share the love of Christ with others. For more information on the Stephen Ministry program or to be put in contact with a Stephen Minister, contact the church office at (817) 281-5254.

Table Talk

Table Talk is a small group and intergenerational faith discussion, where youth, young adults, middle aged adults, and older adults gather around tables to discuss their faith journeys. It is a great way to meet people in our church you may not typically interact with, and it is an incredible opportunity to learn and be challenged in our faith by people who are younger and older than ourselves. Table Talk discussions typically involve deeper conversations on the Sunday sermon topics. Table Talk occurs during the Wednesday night Wesley meals from 6:15-6:35 p.m. in the Event Center.

Wednesday night Wesley Meals and Table Talk occur each Wednesday night during the school year (from the end of August to the end of May).

Our UMM is actively involved in local missions, including the Weekend Meal Program in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and the 1000 Coats Against the Cold drive. Other service projects from this past year include renovating a house for a Congolese family, building a community garden for Northside Inter Church Agency, and making a house handicapped accessible for a family in need. The UMM gather on the second Saturday of each month at 7:30 a.m. for a breakfast and program.

Women’s Summer Bible Study 

The Women’s Summer Bible Study meets June 13-July 25 on Monday nights from 7:00-8:45 p.m. in FL 204 (ABC Classroom). This summer’s study is entitled The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer. Please register with Laurie Bolden at lbbolden@aol.com or the church office. The cost for the study is $10 to cover the cost of the workbook and materials.

About The Armor of God Bible Study: There is a devoted, devilish enemy who seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. His battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. But the enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God is more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory — it is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A CHURCH GROUP?

Many of us have found ourselves getting stuck in a busy daily routine at some point in time that may not satisfy all of our needs as people. Sometimes, our extra time for exercise, book clubs, swimming, golf, even prayer seems to get pushed aside. We want to offer everyone an opportunity to set aside time with others to intentionally engage in these activities again. If you start to lose steam, you will have plenty of new friends to keep you going.


PURPOSE OF CHURCH GROUPS

Spiritual development can happen here

There are five essentials components you will see in our small groups:

  • Positive life impact
  • Grow closer to Jesus Christ 
  • Cultivate healthy friendships
  • Promote/encourage participation
  • Empower future leaders

HOW TO GET STARTED WITH A CHURCH GROUP

We know it can be difficult to take the next step from a large group environment like our weekend worship experience to a smaller setting. That’s why we would like to offer a few suggestions to help.

1) Read through the descriptions of each group to see which one most identifies with your interests.

2) Reach out to the contact person to ask more questions about the group and when they are meeting next.

3) Attend at least two meetings to get a sense of the group dynamic and to see if its a good fit for you. If it is not, no one will be offended.

4) Check out other groups that may fit your needs or interest. If you can’t find a group that quite matches you, then reach out to our office administrator to see how you can start your own group.


OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR

We always encourage people to join our church groups because they have such a positive impact on our members' lives. I would be happy to get you started in the right direction.
