At Damascus UMC we believe that a key to developing as a disciple of Christ is to join a small group. There are many kinds of small groups available here including long-term and short-term, interest groups, gender groups, mission groups, Bible studies and more. Some of our groups change every few weeks so be sure to check back regularly.
Adult Sunday School
We have several Adult Sunday School classes that meet from 9:30-10:30 (Sept.-May) between our worship services. Visit our Adult Ministries webpage to find a class.
Mission Groups - please visit the Missions page
Love One Another - discussion group
Some of us have been discussing what it means to love one another as it relates to our church and community. What does it look like for us to live this out as a church? Is our church reflective of Damascus and its new diversity? Are we serving all of our neighbors in our community? Contact Charlotte Kibak at to be part of this conversation.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl Ministry is a creative way to combine the love of knitting and/or crocheting with ministry people in need of comfort. The shawls we make offer tangible evidence of God's love to each recipient. If you would like to participate or give a shawl to someone you know, contact Cathy Heinbaugh (
