Family Ministries & Small Groups
Santa Clarita United Methodist Church offers many programs and events throughout the year for adults and families to come participate and enjoy. The purpose of Family Ministries and the Adult Ministry is to provide events and activities that foster fellowship and faith development for families and adults.
“In all my eleven years of itinerant ministry I cannot recall any growing church which does not encourage small groups”
