SMALL GROUP MINISTRIES
As people of faith journeying together, we commit to growing in our understanding of God, our practice of spiritual disciplines, and our fellowship with one another. Small group ministries offer us opportunities to experience and nurture such growth as we work to become better disciples. All are welcome to participate.
Our current small groups include:
This group is for anyone who enjoys performing instrumental music in the worship service. No previous experience with bell ringing is needed but the ability to read music is helpful. This group plays regularly in our worship service from September through May.
Rehearsal: Usually Tuesday or Wednesday mornings in the sanctuary.
Director: Judie Batterman
SENIORS ON THE MOVE
Serving the Wider Community
As United Methodists, we believe the work of the church is the work of all people. Each of us is called to participate and to put our faith into action. This means living into our promise to support the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.
Local Community Work

The Wautoma Community Garden
The garden is located at Grace United Methodist Church at N2133 Southgate Terrace in Wautoma. Each Fall, cow manure and leaves were tilled in to the soil for fertilizer. Every Spring, the garden is tilled again and made ready for planting. The garden contains four plots that are 12’x15’ in the front of the garden, six plots that are 15’x25’ in the middle, and two plots that are 12’x12’ in the back of the area. In addition, there are two raised beds that are 4’x8’ x 2’-6” high for those that have a problem bending over. Water is available for your use. See the April newsletter for details, or call the church office at 920-787-4668 to secure a plot. Then just bring your seeds, plants, and enjoy your bounty of veggies this summer!
