Pastor's Bible Study
The Pastor's Bible Study meets most Mondays at 7:00 pm in the Church Library (see the calendar for more details) and is facilitated by the pastor, Chris Brown. The group follows the passages of scripture on the Revised Common Lectionary. We always welcome new members.

The Prayer Warriors is a small group of women who meet at a local restaurant on the second Tuesday of each month to share prayer concerns and to offer prayer and support.
United Methodist Women Circles
Wheeler UMC offers two small group United Methodist Women Circles: The Susanna Wesley Circle and the Alice Lee Barnes Circle. These small groups meet at different times throughout the month and are mission and service driven. The UMW unit as a whole meets once a month in the library for a devotion and to discuss business. The big annual fundraiser for UMW is the Yard Sale held each April. All women of the church are invited to attend.
United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men meet every 4th Sunday of the month for breakfast in the Family Life Center at 8:00am. The group has a devotion and helps to fund and support projects and ministries and missions of the church. All men are invited to attend. Two of their annual fundraisers are the Bluegrass Banquet and the Valentine's Day Banquet in which a sizeable number of the proceeds they give to the Building Fund.
In addition to Sunday morning opportunities for kids, there are various opportunities and ministries for children throughout the year such as a spring party to learn about the story of Easter, Vacation Bible School in June and mission projects designed for kids. Contact our ministries coordinator, Emily Harding, for more information.
In addition to the youth Sunday School class, the youth group at Wheeler is an active group of both middle and high scool students.

Fire on the Mountain - a retreat designed specifically for the Wheeler Youth Group in October or November; C.) Resurrection - A Holston Conference Youth Gathering in Gatlinburg, Tennessee each January.
