Group Finder

We hope every person at DWUMC finds a place to plugin and belong! Each year we start new Groups and Classes that help us engage our faith as we try to become more like Christ. Below you will find a description of our Adult Discipleship offerings, and any new/ongoing Groups and Classes that are open to join.

If you have trouble viewing the “Group Finder” panel please expand your browser window. If you have any questions please email Dr. Woods Lisenby.


Sunday School Groups: An open and ongoing experience with people in roughly the same phase of life. These groups do not require prior reading or in-depth knowledge to attend. In these groups, a leader will offer a lesson and foster discussion. It is an experience where life-long Christians and first-time guests are all welcome. 

Small-Group: A Small Group is typically made up of fourteen or fewer persons and aims to deepen members’ Christian accountability and discipleship. Small Groups usually study books or series and expect group members to read or do other activities outside of the group meeting. These groups meet once a week, every other week, or once a month, depending on the group’s preference. The level of participation required varies in each group. Once the group establishes its members, it usually only changes at seasonally appointed times. 

Classes: Classes are short-term learning experiences with a defined beginning and end. We offer classes on a variety of subjects.
