TUMC seeks to be a community of communities by encouraging members and friends to be part of small, intentional groups. Small groups within a congregation foster the growth of a faith community. Matthew 18:20 points out, “Where 2 or 3 are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” In an oft fractured and impersonal urban environment, being part of a small group provides a solid connection to others in support of our faith journey
In TUMC some small groups continue from year to year. Others are short term. Many are inter-generational. Though the lines between them are blurred, TUMC groups have four emphases:
* Getting to know one another
* Special interests members have in common
* Sustaining friendships
* Discernment, study and/or service
