All Adult Sunday Morning Faith Groups are ongoing and meet in the Sanctuary Building from 10:00 – 10:45 am. Visitors are always welcome!

Young Adults

Room S-102 (Sanctuary Building)
Leader: Tiffany & Gavin Franks

We are young adults in their twenties to thirties who strive to discuss the unique challenges that young adults/couples/parents face in today’s world. We want to build friendships, support, and spiritual comfort for the next generation at St. Matthew.

Growing in Faith

Room S-103 (Sanctuary Bldg)
Leader: Edward Johnson

We are a welcoming group of thirty-forty somethings, who embrace the fact that we have actually grown up (a little) from our post college days. Our weekly lessons focus on dealing with busy lives from a Christian and Biblical based perspective. Raising children and teenagers, growing careers, and leadership roles in the church and the larger community guide our discussions. We have both kid-friendly and just-adult gatherings outside Sunday mornings.

Faithful Followers

Room S-107 (Sanctuary Bldg)
Leaders: Sarah Smith & Laura Bridgeman

We are adults (tend to be 50’s , 60’s and a few 70’s) who are growing in Christ and nurturing one another. We are couples and singles who enjoy being together! We have varied lessons promoting discussion and participation, taught by class members on a rotating basis as well as guest speakers. We meet from September through May, with social gatherings throughout the year. Our class is a support group for one another with a loving and caring spirit.

Trinity

Room S-104 (Sanctuary Building)
Leader: Betty Davis

A caring, supportive, inclusive group of persons who enjoy being together as we continue to grow our faith and become better disciples of Christ.” Persons of all ages and with differing “perspectives” are welcomed! Class lessons focus on Bible study, Social/Ethical/Moral Issues from Christian perspectives, & Faith-building concepts -- using a format of content presentation (often DVD’s) and group discussion. Class sessions are weekly, year-round: all are welcome to join us every week or for select studies or lessons.  We enjoy occasional social gatherings and are committed to a strong MISSION emphasis … supporting vulnerable and underserved individuals and groups, throughout the year.

Aldersgate

Room S-106 (Sanctuary Building)

We are older adults who take our lessons from Bible Studies in the United Methodist International Series. The class gathers at a local restaurant for dinner and fellowship once a month.

It’s Time for Some St. Matthew Pickle Ball!

Mondays & Wednesdays
In the Family Life Center (gym)

Do you already play Pickle Ball? Do you want to learn how to play?

St. Matthew Adult Pickleball clinics have begun. All who are interested in learning how to play Pickleball, and those who already know how to play are invited to come!

We will have “Pickleball Court Time” on Mondays from 1 to 3 pm and Wednesdays from 2 to 4 pm.  We will have one or two instructors on Mondays and then open court time on Wednesdays.

What to Bring:

  • Please bring your pickleball paddle if you have one (we will have some paddles available to use if you don’t)
  • Bring a friend!  

Never played Pickleball before?

It’s LOTS OF FUN and a great way to EXERCISE AND SOCIALIZE!  It’s like tennis, but you don’t have to run quite as much because the court is smaller. We are excited about bringing this new “leisure sport” to our St. Matthew Family and their friends!
