Small Groups and Studies

Fruit of the Spirit Study

The metaphor of bearing fruit is often used in the Bible. Jesus said, “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.” (John 15:8) What kind of fruit did he mean?  Join Rev. Kathy Brockman as we explore, study and discuss the Fruit of the Spirit as written by the Apostle Paul to the Galatians, “By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.” (Galatians 5:22-23 NRSV) This study will be meeting Wednesday evenings, February 9, 16, & 23, at 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Asbury Room - A. Register HERE.

“Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living”

DUMC Outdoor Ministry

The Outdoor Ministry of DUMC is for those who:

  • -Wish to enhance their spiritual life
  • -Have the desire to get outside and experience nature (no experience necessary!)
  • -Seek a closer relationship to the community of faith
  • -Try new things, learn new skills, and experience new places
The Outdoor Ministry of DUMC is designed to bring together active adults who are seeking God in Christian fellowship together with those with similar interests. Some of us find the “barrier” between God and ourselves is thinner when in nature.

You may have experience, have participated in outdoor activities earlier in life, or have no experience whatsoever. All that is required is desire.
