316 Super Small Groups

At CUMC we offer Small Groups that are typically about 8-15 people and meet seasonally in the fall and spring. We strongly encourage you to join one as many have open enrollment!

But today we are introducing a NEW option: 316 Super Small Groups

316 Super Small Groups are groups of 3 people that commit to meeting 1 hour a week for 6 months. During this time, you will pray together, challenge, support, grow and mutually disciple one another. It will be an opportunity to go deeper in your spiritual walk – to ask questions that you could not ask in a larger group, and to keep each other accountable.


Typical structure:

  1. Begin with prayer.
  2. Have a time of conversation, share your highs and lows of the week – the challenges you faced and the “wins”.
  3. Study the Word together. Pick a passage and spend time reading it, studying it, and discussing how to apply it to each of your lives. Guides can be provided.
  4. End with prayer.

316 Super Small Groups will be groups of three men or three women but can be any age. Click HERE for more information or to join one.  

We are not meant to go through this difficult life alone.

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Small Groups

*  Are you missing connection with other adults?

*  Have you felt isolated during the last few months?

*  Does your spiritual life need a boost?

Then sign up for a small group today! Small groups are a gathering of people who have fellowship, study the Word together, pray together and are taking intentional steps

toward Christ.

We have groups meeting in person that are following social distancing guidelines, and we have groups that are meeting online through video.

My faith, while tested, has gotten me through, and one of God’s greatest gifts on this journey has been my small group at church.”  -Andrew Aun, Chapin UMC member


We have so loved and been blessed by our group. We were just discussing last night that many of us met for the first time 9 weeks ago and now we feel like family!  A true testament to the power and joy in authentic community!

-Jan Mayo, Chapin UMC Small Group Leader

Church Wide Studies

Several times a year, we come together for a church-wide Bible study that follows the sermon series.  Small groups are formed specifically for these studies as well.  This allows us to connect and grow as we take a deeper dive into the Bible together.  


Below are links to previous studies that you can still do on your own:



1 Thessalonians



Sunday School

We believe that Sunday morning Sunday School is a large and vital part of our Christian journey. 

The Sunday School hour runs from 10:10-11:10 and allows our church family to dig deep into the Word of God and build authentic, transformational relationships with one another. 


For updated information on Sunday School classes, please contact Marcy Kenny, 

Assimilation Minister at 345-2801 or

marcy@chapinumc.com and she will be glad to assist you! 


Senior Adults are composed of the retired set who enjoy the monthly fun, fellowship and food gatherings. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month in room 206. The happenings start around 10:30 and end around 1:00 pm. Dress is casual and programs are varied. Community involvement is encouraged, so come and invite a friend! 


Singles are an active group from their 50's into their 80's. Our gathering spots vary from the church facility to member's homes to the lake! Cookouts, covered dishes and prepared meals have served us well! We usually meet the 4th Friday of the month at 6:00 pm, but the area agenda offers additional activities. Monthly post cards are mailed with each month's specific information. Come join us! Contact the church office at 345-2801 for an update on the CUMC Singles activities!
