Connect at Smithfield Church

Engage and Grow in Faith

Building faith-based relationships is a cornerstone goal at Smithfield Church. Lifelong friendships can begin and grow as God’s word - The Holy Bible - is studied and disciples become increasingly like-minded. Because this study of Holy Scripture is present in most Smithfield Church activities, the invitations for you to join might be overwhelming at first. At Smithfield, we encourage you to relax, try out as many studies and classes as you like, and note how many new friends you make along the way. See you there.

  • Bible Studies

    You’re invited to explore the Bible at Smithfield Church among a group of Believers. Bible studies are organized by adult groups, youth groups, and by women or men’s groups. Dates and times are detailed in the Happenings Newsletter in the Sunday Worship Bulletins, and on the Church Calendar. Studies are held during Sunday classes, Tuesday or Wednesday classes, on campus, and off campus.

  • Break Bread and Study

    TGIW - Every Wednesday evening at 5:15, a meal is prepared by teams and served to all who attend in the Family Life Center. It’s known as Thank God It’s Wednesday (TGIW) and it free of charge. Teams usually are raising money for a ministry posted beside the servcing area, so donations are optional.

    Meals are also served at many of the Women and Men’s group gatherings.

    You’ll often see announcements for potluck meals, usually served between Sunday worship services or after worship. Be sure to join in because there is always plenty and Methodists, as you wil see, are excellent cooks.
