You do not have to be alone in this journey called life! Life is best lived in community.  At South Shore UMC, it is experienced together in community groups that appeal to all different age groups, genders, situational and spiritual stages of life, and interests!

MOPS - MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. Moms enjoy their special time with other mothers and mentor moms who have been there and are willing to share their experiences with you. Kids enjoy their own special time with other kids through the Moppettes program. Meetings are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at the church, and the 2nd and 4th Thursdays are set aside for play dates and Mom's night out events.  Click here for more information.

Ladies Beth Moore Bible Study Group -  This group of ladies meets on Wednesday mornings to study together.  The sessions commence on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am. Beth presents many points of view, allowing women to decide for themselves when the interpretation varies among scholars. She teaches that God is as specific about what He does reveal as He is about what He does not reveal. Register today!
