FAST 5 is a new ministry this year designed especially for Fun, Active Spiritual Training for our 5th graders. We meet each Wednesday at Argyle United Methodist from 6-7:30 pm. We spend our time having snacks, playing games, worshipping, and learning a Bible lesson. Our goal is to engage all types of students, challenge them with God’s word, and have FUN doing so. Please contact Jennifer Tolin to receive updates and information.

Argyle UMC defines a Life Group as a small, welcoming group of people who gather on a regular basis in the name of Jesus Christ and inlcudes a spiritual element in their meeting, such as prayer, scripture, and/or devotional. 

FOUR TYPES OF LIFE GROUPS

BIBLE STUDY

These groups meet regularly to study the bible, either on campus or off campus, such as Sunday School. 

MISSIONAL

These groups serve in our community and in the world, transforming it one life at a time through missions. 

MINISTRY

Ministry groups, such as LIGHT or SALT, have regular activities and events scheduled throughout the year and serve in ministry.  

SOCIAL

These groups get together to fellowship on a regular basis. This could include a prayer group or an exercise group. 

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16

Welcome to Argyle United Methodist Church’s LIGHT ministry. We are women seeking to live in God’s Holy Tapestry by transforming our lives through the study of God’s word, fellowship, and service that we may grow in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and use our gifts to the glory of God.

Stephen Ministers provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges. The role of a Stephen Minister is to listen and care, not to advise or give counsel, and to recognize when a person’s needs exceed what they can provide. Stephen Ministers maintain only one caring relationship at any given time and usually meet with their care receivers on a weekly basis. Confidentiality is preserved at all times by not discussing care receivers by name or by implication. For more information, click the button above or contact Mary Ellen at maryellen@argyleumc.org
