A small group is a group of people who gather each week in homes, local coffee shops, church, or really anywhere. In a small group, you’ll hang out, discuss issues at the intersection of life and faith, and share in fellowship with others. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. We believe in small groups because we believe personal growth happens best when people grow together. New small groups will begin later this fall.
The young adult Bible study is a great place to examine beliefs and be encouraged by other young adults. Together we choose a book of the Bible to study in-depth. This strengthens understandings of scripture and stretches us to view the Bible and Jesus’ plan for our lives in new and challenging ways. This group is for adults aged 18-30.
When: Thursdays, 7-8:30 p.m. (ongoing)

Adam and Angelique have been married for 28 years and have three children – Tanner (24), Jack (22) and Lydia (16). We grew up in Roswell, are both long time members at RUMC, and were actually married in the RUMC Chapel. We first visited the CR service last winter when our sons were home from college and have been hooked on the music and the message ever since. We first participated with the Chapel Roswell small groups several years ago and our group has remained active to support and spread the word about the great things happening “In the Round.”
When: Wednesdays, 7-8:00 p.m.
Where: Restaurants around Roswell/East Cobb
Facilitator: Adam and Angelique
Very Small Small Group
We are presently 3 couples, (and counting) all counting our married lives in decades. Our group has grown kids, grandkids, kids in college, and no kids. We all have dogs, some have cats. We are musicians and artists, engineers and planners. We are all long term members of RUMC, and have all been drawn to Chapel Roswell, because of the message of hope, love, and inclusion for all of God’s children.
We’ve read and discussed studies by Max Lucado, Frederick Buechner, and Walter Bruggeman. We’ve read and discussed Paul, the gospels, the gnostic gospels and how 1st century teachings inform our 21st century lives.
We’re intellectually curious and theologically diverse, open to all viewpoints, all shared without judgment. We are children of God, creating a safe place to ask questions, wrestle angels and seek God’s grace and wisdom.
When: Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m. (ongoing)
Where: West Wing Conference Room, 3rd floor, Chapel building
