Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God.
At Damascus UMC we believe that a key to developing as a disciple of Christ is to join a small group. There are many kinds of small groups available here including long-term and short-term, interest groups, gender groups, missional groups, Bible studies and more. Some of our groups change every few weeks so be sure to check back regularly.
Adult Sunday School
We have several Adult Sunday School classes that meet from 9:30-10:30 (Sept.-May) between our worship services. Visit our Adult Ministries webpage to find a class.
Lenten Studies with the Pastors
"The Great Spiritual Migration" by Brian McLaren
Join Pastor David on Wednesday evenings beginning, Feb. 21 @7:15pm, for a 5 week study on Brian McLaren's book. This provocative book may get you thinking about faith and church in some different exciting ways. Recommended that those who wish to join, get the book and read the first few chapters before Feb. 21.
The Jericho Road Devotional: An MLK50 Lenten Journey
Join Pastor Amanda on Monday evenings, beginning Feb 12th @6:30pm, for a 7 week Lenten study using the Jericho Road Devotional. This devotional, created by the Baltimore Washington Conference in honor of the 50th anniversary of MLK Jr.'s death, uses scripture and a writing of MLK Jr. each week to guide the group in conversations and action. Take this chance to reflect and delve deeper into conversations of justice and social reform, especially around the issue of race.
Devotional can be found here or contact Pastor Amanda regarding a printed copy. Devotional is FREE! Please come on Feb 12 having read the first week's devotions and MLK Jr. writing.
