Adult Bible Communities

Women in fellowship

Adult Bible Communities are small groups of South Mainers who meet every Sunday to grow in friendship and to study the Bible. Our Adult Bible Communities are primarily divided by life-stage so that we have companions on our journey. Most of the Adult Bible Communities meet on Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM. Greeters in the Welcome Center can give you directions to the community meeting rooms.

In addition to these Communities that meet regularly on Sunday mornings, South Mainers also meet periodically in small groups called South Main At Home.

If you have any questions, contact Minister for Discipleship Matt Walton.
