Sermon & Conversation Study Monday @ 11:00AM- Noon with Pastor Betsy

Second UMC seeks to build a community of deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ. One of the ways we deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ is through the study of scripture and conversation with each other. Each Monday, we gather to explore deeper the Sunday morning scripture passage. All are welcome.

To participate in the small group, provide your name and email address.
