Growing together in christ

Small Groups

Women’s Bible Study
We are different ladies from all walks of life learning more about God and growing in faith together. We meet every Wednesday at 6:00 in the Library upstairs. We laugh together, cry together, and love doing life together. We have been going through different Bible studies together and would love for you to join in. God has done some amazing things through our women group and we hope you will join in and let us be your village as we go though life together.
Men's Group
Don’t walk alone in this life; make sure that you have a friend to sharpen you! Our Methodist Men’s Group is a great place to find a friend. This group of men meets every Wednesday at church in the Wesleyan Room for lunch from noon until 1:00 pm. The meal consists of some of the best home cooked sandwiches that you will ever eat with chips, dessert, and iced tea or coffee for only $7.00! We have food, fellowship, a short Bible study, and close in prayer. We make it a point to eat too much, laugh just enough, and lift each other up in prayer continually. Any man from18 to108 is welcome to join us and even bring a friend or neighbor.
United Women of faith

The organized unit of the United Women of Faith shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ: to develop a creative, supportive fellowship: and to expand concepts of missions through participation in the global ministries of the church.

Our United Women in Faith meet the first Tuesday of every month in the Wesleyan Classroom.

Seniors

55 & Rising is the group for senior adults in our church and you don’t have to be a member of Sevierville First United Methodist Church to participate. We don’t have a mission statement, because we choose to focus on fellowship and giving our seniors a place to connect with each other. We meet once a month usually on the second Monday of the month for picnics, entertainment, lunch, travel to the mountains, and we have topics of discussion every meeting. Some of the topics include careers, travel, authors, book reviews, music, thought for the day, and sometimes we have games, entertainment, etc. We strive to have fun, fellowship, and food at every meeting.

Please join us soon! 

Prayer Shawl

Come join us as we fellowship together and use the talents of quilting, knitting and crochet to minister to others in our community. If you do not know how to quilt, knit or crochet and would like to learn we will teach you!

We meet every Monday morning in the Parlor from 9:00-11:00.

Children
Ed O’Brien

Kids for Christ is a Bible based Sunday School for 4th – 6th graders. The lessons use several Old and New Testament scriptures, and when possible, to relate the lesson to their everyday life. Each child will independently find the Bible verse and all will read select verses aloud. Each child participates in prayer and will, on a rotating basis open or close the class with a prayer. Our goal is to help the students relate to and understand the importance of the Bible, as a foundation, while their faith matures.

New Horizons
Sally Shell

Our class is made up of people from all walks of life. We go through different studies of the Bible and learn with each other. We are also a strong group that loves to welcome new faces and grow with them in Christ.
