We create a spirit of belonging through Christian care giving, fellowship and service. We foster collaboration both within our congregation and throughout our greater community. We invite you to join our groups and fellowship events!
One of Elk Grove United Methodist church’s core values is fellowship. The church enjoys spending time together and supporting each other through the good and challenging times of one’s life.
Some fellowship events have included:
• An all church swim party and BBQ at one of our member’s homes where there is a fabulous pool and backyard.
• A chili cook off, held in conjunction with our stewardship tail gate party. We have some very creative cooks in the congregation!
• Thanksgiving Dinner and Talent Show, held in conjunction with an ice cream social which benefits the scholarship fund. Excellent food. Some great talent and some not so great talent but all for a wonderful cause.
• Our Annual Christmas Caroling party where we meet at the church to brush up on our singing and then divide into groups and travel around the larger Elk Grove area, singing to folks who are ill, homebound or perhaps need some extra cheer. We meet back at the church for hot cocoa and cider and munchies.
Other fellowship activities are offered throughout the year.
Prayer Chain Ministry
Intercessory prayer is going to God on behalf of someone else; someone that is in need of our care and concern. This ministry is initiated by a phone call or an e-mail to the church office.

United women in Faith
United Women in Faith (formally known as United Methodist Women) has been challenging social injustice for more than 140 years. Members improve the lives of women, children, and youth nationally and internationally.
United Women in Faith (UWF) is a community of women who nurture and encourage one another in their spiritual growth, personal leadership and transformation. We are organized for mission and our members are committed to growing as disciples of Jesus Christ in community with other women and building the lives of women, children and youth.
United Women in Faith is bigger than just our church – it is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members who raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
United Women in Faith continues its advocacy work on peace and justice, education, racial justice, immigrant rights, the environment, economic justice, women’s health, the rights of children, human rights, and farm workers’ rights, to name a few. We also support programs and projects aimed at improving the special needs of women because of their refugee statuses, their immigration statuses, situations in which they are abused, their high illiteracy rate in some countries, their economic dependence, their educational disparities, and much more.
UWF supports our church’s weekend meal ministry, youth fellowship programs, and childcare thru donations. Our main fund raiser is our rummage sale. We have one every spring and every fall. Watch the church calendar for the next one. UMW meets the first Wednesday of each month at noon. Please consider joining us
