Grow Groups

Small Groups at PWUMC


We believe Grow Groups are one of the best ways to follow Jesus. Grow Groups provide a welcoming environment to seek answers to life’s most important questions with others. Grow Groups help us to become better people (more Christ like people) because we learn from one another. We hope you’ll consider being part of a Grow Group. We can’t recommend it highly enough!

The next round of Grow Group signups will be in August of 2021. This summer, we’re pleased to bring you multiple opportunities to learn through our classes!

What will I experience? 
As a member of a Grow Group, you will get to meet other people who want to follow Christ. Every group will have its own personality and way of doing things, but you’re sure to find a place to learn and grow together.


Grow Groups were essential to my development as a person and leader within the church. When I first started attending Platte Woods UMC, I joined a group. My time in this group was a time of formation. I learned so much about myself and about God. Many of my assumptions were challenged. I was pushed to become a better person. Over time I eventually started leading within the group. I believe my participation in the group helped me discover my calling to pastoral ministryWhat’s even more amazing is I still talk with many people in my original group!
