Grow Closer



During this time of isolation due to the CoronaVirus, it is important

we continue to have social outlets. Church groups can continue to

meet, just not in person. We encourage all groups to continue to

meet to the best of their abilities. Working with group leaders, we

will be providing access to group meetings through either telephone

(voice only) or computer (video conferencing) or hybrid meetings.

If anybody would like help setting up one of these meetings,

please reach out to Pastor Matt.



Spring 2022 Adult Small Group Studies...

Our adult small group study program continues this spring. Due to the current state of the pandemic, we will be holding these programs through a hybrid approach of in-person and remote via Zoom.


Our gatherings are held on Sunday mornings from 11am until 12 noon. We hope that you can join us as we continue on our faith journey together. To join us online, the link to all of our classes can be found by clicking HERE, or on the Bishop Janes website ( or Midweek Minute.

Here’s what we have in store for the remainder of this year:

  •  What’s So Amazing About Grace (April 24 – June 12). This study by Philip Yancy looks at grace; what it is, why it is so precious, and how to integrate it into your life.

  • We hope you’ll consider joining some or all of our small group discussions. If you have any question, please contact Ted Schroeder or Kevin Dresely (click name to email).



Small groups are an incredible way to grow closer to God and each other. At Bishop Janes UMC our small groups meet seasonally and gather to study and learn about a wide variety of topics.


Small groups exist as a way for people to engage in the biblical community that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives.


God never intended for us to live the Christian life alone. So come and check out one of our many small groups.  During the pandemic, our groups are virtual. Please click here to view our Events page for information.
