Ministries

Cave Spring UMC offers many ways for those who are interested in serving our neighbors, both in the community and wider world, through the church and in partnership with others.

Music Ministries

Music touches our souls and speaks the beauty of God’s love into our lives. Music provides opportunities for people of all ages, stages, and abilities to participate in worship as we join in praise to God. We build a harmony of Christ-centered community and spiritual growth that extends into the community through Music @ the Cave, Love Feast and seasonal offerings.

CHANCEL CHOIR

Adults of all ages.

The Choir is open to anyone who has a love for singing and wishes to experience the joy of working with an ensemble. The choir not only performs during Sunday worship but also performs during special services and concerts. The Chancel Choir is accompanied by Star Song, organist, and is an integral part of worship.

WELLSPRING PRAISE TEAM

The Praise Team leads music during Wellspring worship service, opening our hearts to the presence of Christ as we worship.

THE CHANCEL BELLS

Adults of all ages

The Chancel Bells is open to anyone interested in sharing the joy of music. Those with no former experience or those with experience are welcome. This group rehearses on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary.

GROW TOGETHER

Equipping and Spiritual Formation Ministries strive to provide opportunities for individuals to develop a spiritual foundation and passion for spiritual and personal growth as they move forward in their spiritual journey, feeling empowered to invite others to learn and grow along with them.

ADULT SUNDAY MORNING SMALL GROUPS

ADULT BIBLE STUDY

Conference Room

The Adult Bible Study class goes directly to the source for the Word of God, the Bible. Using the Uniform Series of International Bible Lessons as its guidebook, this small group delves deeply every week into the Bible.

FRIENDSHIP CLASS

Reception Hall

The Friendship Class is a cohesive group of folks, mostly middle-aged and seniors, many of whom have been a part of the class for years. Friendship is taught by six to eight class members on a rotating basis and thrives on lively discussion and class participation.

FOUNDATIONS CLASS

Room 16

Foundations is a small class composed of parents of school-aged children. Class members take turns leading discussions, using a sign-up-as-you-are-able style. Group studies have covered a wide range of topics from traditional Bible studies to current events.

LIVING THE FAITH

This medium-sized, multi-generational class aims for studies that apply God’s word to the joys and challenges of daily living. Most studies last four-six weeks and include a short video followed by class discussion.

WEEKDAY ADULT SMALL GROUPS

Cave Spring UMC believes that everyone flourishes in their discipleship by sharing their spiritual journey with others. We are happy that we have a healthy and thriving small group community that offers various opportunities for spiritual friendship.

The Equipping and Connecting team always welcomes the formation of new small groups.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Bible): Men’s Bible study on Thursday mornings at 6:45 AM
