Small Groups for
Learning, Service, Arts, Music & Fellowship

What we believe made accessible to all but deep enough to inspire one's faith. BasicFaith is part confirmstion class, part new-member class, part intro to Christianity, and part theology refresher. We'll explore big ideas (Who/What is God?), and answer questions (What is sin?, What is grace?) using the Bible as our guide, all the while keeping things relavent to our lives here and now.
No experience necessary

Bible Study

God's Word and good food--a great combination. We meet for Bible Study at Tuckey's Big Boy restaurant (on M-50/Chicago Ave. on the west side of Tecumseh) at 11:30am each Tuesday. Pastor Mark leads this group. Bring a Bible and an appatite. If you haven't spent much time with a Bible, don't worry about it. Just come.

Just beginning - The Minor Prophets
We know that y'all are going crazy with curiosity about the 12 minor prophets of the Old Testament. Come to Bible Study and we'll slake that thirst!

And who are the Minor Prophets? Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, & Malachi.

Prayer Team

This group brings the celebrations and concerns of the Tecumseh UMC faith communtity to prayer in an information setting. We gather at 9:05am each Sunday morning in the Pastor's Study (next to the office). All are welcome.

Sunday School Classes

We currently offer Sunday School classes for children and youth.
Classes meet after Worship on Sunday


Under the direction of Adrian College music professor emeritus, Wilnella Bush, our choir sings each Sunday during worship (except for a few months in the summer). All are invited to come and praise God through song. Rehearsals are Thursday evening at 7:30pm.
If you can breath and talk, you can probably sing. Come, join us!

Handbell Choir

We are blessed to have excellect handbells and a great director to lead our handbell choir, but we can always find room for someone new. It's a lot of fun and the music isn't something you'll hear on the radio.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 6:30pm.

Women of Faith

This women's fellowship is getting a much better description very soon.
It meets every 4th Monday evening at 7:00pm.
