Small Groups at FUMC by Hilda Paxton

We are looking to offer a number of small group opportunities in the fall and we need your input.
small-group
Over the next several weeks you will be asked to help with ideas for topics you would like to be discussed and groups you would like to lead. A survey has been developed and we are asking that each of you give thought to what you would like to see offered and/or how you could be a leader (small group survey). Please fill out the survey just once even though it may be offered in different venues. It would be okay to fill out another one if you come up with other ideas. This is a great opportunity for our church family to grow together. We hope to get the survey on line as well as the paper option.If you have any questions feel free to contact Hilda Paxton, Joe Ferguson, Bobby Pickle, Tricia Givens or Pastor Bass.
Please fill out the survey, make a copy and turn in to one of the persons above, or just drop by the church office.
