Small Groups

UCC Logo
Small Groups are a way for members and friends of MHUCC to get to know each other a little better and on a deeper level.  In addition to the other ministries at MHUCC, these small groups meet regularly to laugh, pray, offer support, and enjoy each other’s company. 

Prayer Partners

We are a group of people who have agreed to pray everyday for submitted prayer requests. At this time we have 18 people who pray. Anyone can be a prayer partner, but we request that you sign a covenant promising to pray every day. Covenant forms are available in the church office if you want to be a part of this life-changing ministry. We would love to welcome more prayer partners to join us.

Each prayer partner prays for about 10 people since we divide the requests between 4 teams of prayer partners. We also meet once a month to pray together over all the prayer requests.

Prayer requests can be submitted in the offering plate using the green pew cards, or simply call the church office or contact any of the prayer partners.

Journeying Together

This group meets twice a month to share their spiritual walk together.  Through prayer, conversation, and support, a bond is formed and strengthened over time.  New members are accepted at different times during the year.  Sharon Peterson, a licensed Spiritual Director and member of MHUCC leads this group.

Theology and Cinema

Join this group on the first Friday of each month for a potluck dinner beginning at 6:30pm, a great film selection, and a discussion of the theological implications (and more!) of the film.  This group is led by Pastor Scott.  New members to this group are always welcome.

Women Knitting 4 Peace

MHUCC is happy to be part of this network of individuals dedicated to crafting hope, healing, and peace one stitch at a time.  Shawls, blankets, scarves, caps, and dolls are created for individuals and families in global areas of conflict.  You don’t have to know how to knit, crochet, or sew, or even be a woman, to be a part of this group – just a willingness to help.  Knitting 4 Peace meets on the third Thursday of the month at the church and new members are always welcome. 

Chancel Choir

Do you like to sing?  Our Chancel Choir will happily welcome another voice.  Rehearsals are Thursdays at 7:30pm.   Please contact our Director of Music, Max Chodos, for more information.

Children’s Choir

For our young voices ages 6 through 14, our Children’s Choir has a spot for you!  Rehearsals are Sundays after worship in the upstairs Choir Room.  Please contact our Director of Music, Max Chodos, for more information.

Adult Bible Study

In addition to the many different educational opportunities at MHUCC, we have an adult bible study group that meets every Sunday at 9 a.m. to study and dive deeper into the Bible.  Currently, the group is using the UCC’s “Weekly Seeds” series to study the lectionary selections for each Sunday.  This group is facilitated by Marybeth Holliday and each class is led by a volunteer.  New members are always welcome.

Material Aid

On the second Monday of every month (with a break in the summer), follow the sounds of laughter and sewing machines whirring and you will find this group of volunteers in Fellowship Hall creating beautiful quilts for veterans, shut-ins, and members and friends in the hospital.  Even if you don’t know how to sew, we will find a job for you in the creation of these quilts.  Material Aid welcomes new members throughout the year. 

Women’s Fellowship

The world has changed a great deal since the time this group first formed almost 100 years ago at what is now Mission Hills United Church of Christ.   What has not changed is this group’s commitment to mission, spirituality, fellowship, and service.  Awarding annual scholarships to members attending college, working with El Nido to provide an apartment, furniture, and household goods to a woman and her children who have escaped from a life of abuse, and hosting prayer breakfasts are just a few of the activities that this group sponsors.
