Small Study Group Ministry

Small Study Group Ministry

"A church must grow larger and smaller at the same time. Larger through worship and smaller through small groups." – Rick Warren

Why is a small study group so important?  Throughout the history of the United Methodist Church, small study groups have played a vital role. From the time of Christ to today, these groups have changed countless lives and helped the church to grow.  They have reached thousands with the love of Christ and offered participants the closeness of a well-knitted community. This gives the church the ability to grow larger and smaller at the same time!

The Driftless Regional Ministry churches offer small study groups that you can be a part of.  Choose one that is right for you!  Look over the list below and then feel free to contact the related church to reach out to us and inquire how you can grow with us.  You can also check out our community calendar for the next meeting of the small group you have in mind and reach out to the contact person listed.

Growing in Faith Study Group

"Growing in Faith" Study Group

Join us on a journey of learning more about prayer so we can improve our prayer life, grow stronger in our faith and our relationship with Jesus. Prayer is a powerful tool that is available to everyone. Come along on this expedition and find out how you can strengthen your prayer life.

On this journey, we will be reading "Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer" by Max Lucado. If you can't make it to all of the sessions for this book, please feel free to come whenever you are able!

Sunday Bible Study

Sunday Adult Bible Study

Discover what God has to say to you during our Sunday Bible Studies!  Bible Study is one of the greatest ways we grow in our discipleship with Christ and in our relationships with one another.  Are you worried you don't know enough of the Bible to participate?  Fear not…whether you’ve never really read the Bible or you’ve been a part of Bible studies for years, spending time studying God’s word can be transformative: increase your knowledge, develop the discipline of a daily or weekly routine, and learn more about God and one another.

The Viroqua UMC offers two Bible Study groups on Sundays.   We invite everyone to join us and be a part of the discussion!

Adult Sunday School Class

Adult Sunday School

When you think of Sunday School, visions of little children gathered around a teacher telling Bible stories probably comes to mind.  However, as we grow older our need for learning never stops!  We invite all adults to join us for our Adult Sunday School at the Viroqua UMC.  Class is held every Sunday from 9 to 10 a.m.  Everyone is welcome!
