Being connecting in a small group is an integral component of our Discipleship Ministries at Gainesville First.  Within our small groups we grow spiritually through study, fellowship and service.  Along with Sunday morning studies we also offer studies throughout the week.  We are here to answer your questions, so please feel free to contact Rev. Liz Millar or Rebeccah Damon

Adult Sunday Groups

Join us on Sunday mornings as we gather with friends to study God’s word, share life experiences with one another, and reach out into our community together.  There is a place for everyone whether you’re brand new to Gainesville First or if this has been your church home for years.  We offer classes for all the ages and stages of life along with a variety of sizes and formats.  See the list below for details on each class. 

Soul Connections

We all desire to be known and loved, yet in today’s world, true friendships are hard to come by. Soul Connections are a place to experience real, deep connection with others as you grow together in your faith journey. These groups are all about moving closer to God by living out our faith, not just learning more about our faith.

Adult Studies

Life can be messy and hard, so come join us during the week for one our many adult studies. These small groups offer places to connect with God’s Word and with one another.  We offer topical studies, studies of biblical characters, and books of Bible studies.  Find the right study for you!   

UMW - United Methodist Women

Gainesville First's UMW is focused on women knowing God and experiencing freedom through Jesus Christ.  We strive to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
