Adult Ministries

Making a big church feel more like a smaller and closer community...

We've taken the time to create opportunities for you to gather in community with people who are just like you!  Whether it's the season of life you're in, where you live, or what you love; we want you to feel that you can connect with those around you.  No matter who you are, where you come from, or how old you are...there's a place for you here at Carmel UMC!


Grow Groups are small groups of adults that get together weekly or bi-weekly for community, fellowship, and spiritual growth.  Anyone of all ages and stages of life is welcome to join one of our groups.



If you want to learn what the scripture says about certain topic's such as your finances, relationships, current events, or how to live a Christlike life; then one of our short or long term bible studies might be the right place for you.  



Starting Point

Wondering about God, Jesus, or the Bible? Starting Point is an eight-week small group that provides an opportunity to explore faith in a very safe, non-threatening environment. In fact, no question is off-limits. As a result of this group, you’ll experience a taste of what it’s like to be in community with other people on a similar journey.

Next Steps

God created you with unique gifts and incredible potential.  Next Steps is a four-step process designed to help you explore the history and ministry of Carmel UMC, discover your gifts, develop your leadership, as well as live your life and faith to the fullest.  This four week group is designed for anyone interested in becoming a fully active member of Carmel UMC or if you want a refresher on what God is doing in and through the church.  Childcare is provided.

A Disciples Path

Prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness...this is what we commit to when we become members of Carmel UMC, and it's a BIG step!  A Disciples Path is a 6 week group that helps us look beyond membership, presenting an engaging approach to discipleship from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective.  Discipleship is a life-long commitment to living a life in the footsteps of Christ.  Join us as we beginning the journey for the first time or again for the first time to becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.  

Registration coming soon.  This group is offered at various times of the year.  Check back soon for more info on our next offering!
