Adult groups and classes are how we build community at Aldersgate Church. Being a part of a group is the best way to help a big church feel smaller. Whether it’s a class, a small group, or bible study, in a group, you’ll connect with people in a similar stage of life, or with similar interests. Together, you’ll build community and foster spiritual growth.

We offer small group bible studies, fellowship groups, women’s and men’s groups, prayer groups, topical classes and mission/service groups. The United Methodist Men and the United Women in Faith also provide a place to plug-in for fellowship, outreach and prayer. We also offer various yoga and wellness classes.
