Advent Small Groups

December 2014

One of the tried and true ways that people grow and deepen in their faith, is to be a part of a small group of seekers and believers that meets regularly.  During the first three weeks of December, 2014, you are invited to join a small group that will meet here at the Chatham UMC to discuss the booklet: Walking the Road to Bethlehem: Your Journey to Christmas by Rev. Adam Hamilton.  This book has thoughtful scripture, reflections and prayers for each day of Advent and will be a springboard into discussions with our small groups.

If you would like to participate in a small group, please contact the church office.  If you would like to be a co-facilitator of a small group, please contact Rev. Jeff Markay at revjmarkay@earthlink.net.
