We believe that everyone is deeply loved by God, and therefore everyone are deeply loved by us. The following community-building opportunities exist for the benefit of both those inside the church and those outside of it as well. For any opportunities you may be interested in, please contact the church office.
At Second Avenue UMC we want everyone to be connected with others in important ways. We continue to explore how best to facilitate these connections through small group options.
Small Groups – whether during the Sunday school hour, at some ministry event or in our homes we have many small groups that seek to intentionally create supportive nurturing community. For more info or to experience th nurture and life of a small group click here
