Learning

   

Transformation is at the heart of the mission of First UMC.  Discipleship transforms people’s lives by facilitating habits and practices of intentional faith development.  Our faith is not an abstraction — it is lived out every day in the real world.  In a small group you consider how to live a life of integrity,  consistent with God’s Word and Godʼs will.

Meetings are generally held in the First UMC Lounge (42 Cross Road, Stamford)

As always: refreshments are provided, all members and friends are welcome! No previous attendance required and meetings are casual and friendly!

     Men’s Group meets for study & fellowship once a week, using the Upper Room.

Tuesdays 9:30am – Women’s Fellowship & Faith Study
The group uses a variety of approaches to Bible Study — either studying individual books of the Bible, using video, or reading books on Biblical themes.

Book Club

Our book club would like to invite all in our congregation to read along and join in the discussion. Book Club is an informal group that gathers (about every other month) to discuss works of fiction and non-fiction that touch on our spiritual lives.

The discussions are lively and the fellowship warm and welcoming. We encourage you to read the books even if you are unable to attend the discussion: like the “One City One Book” model, we’re trying a “One Church One Book” and we hope you will find a friend or loved one to engage in discussion.
