Prayer Group          Faith and Fiction          Men's Ministry

Women's Bible Study          Friendship House Bible Study         Youth Group 

The Prayer Group meets to share prayer concerns and to seek God through an extended time in corporate prayer. We commit to “standing in the gap” for others, and to listening to the Holy Spirit’s voice. We want to be praying about the things that are on Jesus’ heart, and to be changed by the Spirit’s presence.

We meet Thursday evenings at 6:30 in the Cortland UMC Library.

Our group uses contemporary works of fiction to engage significant cultural issues from a faith perspective.  Like any book club, we reflect on the content and the writing of the book.  We then take the themes we've uncovered and consider how Christians respond to those themes, what the Bible says about them, and how we can show Christ to a world that is wrestling with these issues.

Participants have one month to read the book prior to the meeting, though the list of upcoming books is posted.  Anyone is welcome to join at any time.  Suggestions for future books are welcomed and encouraged.

We meet the last Tuesday of every month (no meeting June-August), from 6:30-8:00pm at Cortland UMC.

We meet so that men of all ages can have an outlet through Bible study, movies, trips, meals or just fun to strengthen their faith. Men sharpen men through Christ!

We meet September through May, but the day and location can vary depending on what we are doing.

We move deeper into God's word and learn more and more about our personal relationship with Him. Our God is an amazing God and He wants a personal relationship with each of us. Our study discussions lead us closer and closer to Him.

We meet every Monday evening from 6:30-8:00.

The Bible Study group meets at the Friendship House to accommodate those who are less able to travel to participate in a study group and/or who find it difficult to attend church.  The group focuses on reading scripture using a small group bible study guide.  Discussions are enlightening and promote a better understanding of God’s word and what it means for us today.  The focus includes prayer and supportive fellowship. 

Anyone interested in a daytime bible study is welcome.  You do not have to live at the Friendship House to attend. 

We Meet Tuesday afternoons at 1:00 at the Friendship House.
