Small Groups

At Blaine Memorial United Methodist Church, small groups are the key to deeper spiritual growth and connection with other people. We offer a variety of small groups so you can get plugged in, no matter where you are in your spiritual walk. The groups offer a strong network of care, support, and encouragement that’s crucial for a tangible experience of Christ’s love through His church. Groups typically meet weekly or twice a month for 2 hours of study, fellowship and prayer.

Groups vary in size, style, format, time and location. Opportunities are available for men and women, young adult and more mature. Our groups are always open to new members. If you are interested in growing in your faith, in getting to know others at Blaine, or have questions that you’d like conversation around, please email the small group leader.

Monday Evening Women’s Small Group Our group meets weekly on Mondays, except holidays via Zoom. We women of all ages find support for each through Bible studies, topical studies, talking about our life and faith, and by praying together. Although unable to share meals together in person, we often will eat while Zooming. Led Kim Furugori

Occasionally we do a service activity or just fellowship. We meet twice a month on Friday evenings from 7:30-10pm (schedule is set when a new study begins). We generally do not meet during the summer. Group is led by Elaine Chin and Teresa Yagi. We meet at a home on the Eastside. Please contact the church office if you have any questions:
