Adult Instersections



On our spiritual journey, we simply grow better together! 

HUMC offers many ways for adults to connect with others in studies and in fellowship.  You can find studies or common interest groups that meet on different days of the week and on different topics of interest.  There is something for all age groups, stages of life, and different schedules.  Learn more by exploring here.

There are many groups, times, and topics available.  Studies could be in depth on a section of the Bible or a discussion of a book, video, or other topic.  Current and future classes and topics will be posted here.  Learn more here about studies offered Sunday mornings between the Sunday worship services (10:10-11 am).  Learn more here about studies offered throughout the week at various times.  Join in anytime!  

There are Men's and Women's retreats, and Ladies Nights Out.  There are many opportunities for fellowship with the HUMC family.  We hope you will join us.  Check here or under Featured News (at the right, or bottom if you are mobile) to learn more about upcoming events.


The Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matthew 7:12), may be the most widely-held religious principle in the world. Not only is it central to Jesus’ teachings, it is prominent in Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism, among many others. Which raises a question: If the principle is so universal, why is there so much intolerance in our nation and in the world?

Intolerance—whether it is religious intolerance or intolerance of political ideology, gender preference, age, culture, race, or ethnic group—divides, fragments, and polarizes communities.

As a church family, we are committed to addressing this critical issue: first by listening to and understanding others and then by reaching out to build bridges across the intolerance divides. But we need your help to make this Christian Bridge-Building a success. Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Read a copy of the highly-recommended book, Anatomy of Peace – Resolving the Heart of Conflict, from the Arbinger Institute (available on Amazon and elsewhere).
  • Attend the Anatomy of Peace training session for laity on Wednesday, February 21, 7-8:30pm, at Annandale UMC (
  • Let Jen Score (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) know you are interested in becoming part of our effort to listen, communicate, and foster understanding rather than divisiveness.  If you want to know more, you can let Jen Score know or speak with Pastor Gary, Jon Simons, or Jim Seevers.

In a few weeks, we will have a short information session after the Saturday service and between Sunday services. Please watch for the dates in the Friday E-News. As our nation considers major physical infrastructure improvements, let us think about ways of addressing our human infrastructure through Christian Bridge-Building.

Larry & Bev Buxton are hosting another group trip, this time to Norway, Sweden, Denmark & Finland (w/ optional trip to St. Petersburg).  The trip will take place this coming September.

For more information, please visit​ or call Larry at 571-225-1668.

A new small group, open to anyone begins February 11.  The group will meet Sunday evenings at 5:30pm in rooms 112/113. 
The group will begin with the study "A New Playlist", by Jacob Armstrong, which addresses the anxiety, distraction addiction, and schedule overload that result from listening to the world's playlist and gives us permission to hear and live by Jesus' words. Join us Sunday, February 11.

Books are available in the church office.
