Serendipity Events


Sunday School Classes

Sundays at 9:30AM


We have a variety of Sunday School classes to meet the needs of our diverse membership. It is our desire that every person who walks in our doors can find a small group that they feel comfortable in and will learn about and grow in Christ. We invite you to visit our Welcome Center where caring volunteers can assist you in finding the group that best fits your needs.





Small Group Ministry

Throughout the week


Whether you want to explore the Christian faith or deepen your existing faith, small groups are a great place to connect. They help to make the discovery satisfying and the journey enjoyable. During the school year, small groups are offered on a variety of days and times including two options during Wednesday night ACTION. Join us as we study together.




United Methodist Women

The first Thursday of each month at 1:00PM


Open to all women of the church, this group supports programs globally and locally to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for women, children and youth. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00PM and consist of official business of the UMW followed by programs and refreshments.




Men's Breakfast

Saturday at 7:30AM


This group meets Saturday morning at 7:30AM. A group of men meet each week for breakfast and fellowship at The Vault for a time of fellowship and prayer. The Vault is located on the square in downtown Marion, IL.




Women's Bible Study

Tuesday Mornings at 9:30AM


This group of warm, caring ladies meets every Tuesday morning at the church during the school year to learn from God's word. Baby-sitting is available if contacted prior to the meeting day.




Walk to Emmaus

Twice a Year


Held at Camp Jericho in Pulley's Mill. A highly-structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, the faith of their familie, congregations, and the world in which they live. Emmaus is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church. They try to hold walks twice a year for men and women.





Meets Once a Month

Serendipity is our senior ministry group. They meet each month for a potluck gathering accompanied by a special program and guest speakers. If you are interested in attending their next potluck, or have any questions, contact the church office, or Rev. Roger Russell.
