Adult Ministries

Everyone wants a place to belong; a place where someone knows our name, and we can be accepted as we are. Growth Groups seek to offer such a place for everyone!  Growth Groups also challenge people to grow deeper in their spiritual journey, become active participants in the Indian River City UMC community, and develop leadership skills. The ultimate goal is to develop disciples of Christ, who in turn make disciples! 


Come Connect, Grow and Serve with us in one of our on-campus Growth Groups. Click on the following links to learn more: Adult Connections, Adults, Ladies, Men, Seniors, Connections.

Men's Ministry

Do your best to add these things to your lives: faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, patience, service for God, kindness for your brothers and sisters in Christ, and love. If all these things are in you and are growing, they will help you to be useful and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. - 2 Peter 1:5-8


Join a growing number of men in our church who are connecting through fellowship opportunities, growing in their faith through small groups and studies and serving Christ through projects to our church family and community.

Men’s Ministry offers three major events during the year:  

  • Family Super Bowl Party in February
  • Family 4th of July Picnic
  • Advent by Firelight in December

Men’s small groups and short-term Bible studies are held throughout the year. For information about connecting, please contact Mark Peterson or 321-269-2815.
