connecting with god & each other

We believe that God calls us to live out our faith by being involved in the lives of others.  That's why small groups are an integral part of life at Palmdale UMC.  We have a variety of groups for all ages.  We study together, pray together, laugh together, cry together, share our lives with one another, and help support each other along the way.  Some of our groups include:


  • Grief Share- This powerful recovery group is led by Karen and Don. Contact Karen at kspencer1@hotmail.com or Don at donedwards9@roadrunner.com for more information.
  • Huddle I & II-  Learning how to hear God speak to us & how God has wired us for ministry. 
  • The Alpha Course - a great way to discover the basics of the Christian faith by addressing some of life's perplexing questions. 
  • Disciple Bible Study groups - In-depth, college-level Bible studies that range from 24-32 weeks long.
  • Sunday Morning Bible Study - Join one of the groups that gathers to study each week here at the church.
  • Men's Group - The United Methodist Men gather at 8am on the 1st Saturday of every month for friendship, prayer, and participation in larger church activities. 
  • Women's Group - The United Methodist Women meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 10am.  They fosters spiritual growth, develops leaders and advocates for justice.  
  • Sister Squad - A monthly gathering of women (1st Thursday @ 7pm) seeking to grow closer to Christ through study, conversation, laughter & games .
  • We have numerous other small groups that meet in people's homes around the Antelope Valley throughout the month.

assistance for our seniors!

Many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help them maintain their independence and quality of life. SENIOR ADVICE is a website that can help.  They offer a free guide which describes the senior services available in the region and the cost of assisted living in various parts of California. It compares assisted living to other types of care and provides free and low-cost resources to help seniors cover the costs of assisted living.
