The First United Methodist Church, Downers Grove, provides a number of opportunities for fellowship, both educational, to deepen our understanding of living a life of faith, and social, to celebrate our life together as a community.

Lunch Bunch

Lunch BunchThis is a group of senior adults who get together the second Wednesday of each month for a social activity, fun and fellowship. Some of their activities have included a trolley ride to the Sears homes in Downers Grove, a trip to Starved Rock, Christmas in Chicago, a movie: "Singing in the Rain"; a play in Naperville and a Sing-A-Long.

Mingling Methodists

The Mingling Methodists Group is for individuals who are interested in socializing with people from church. We’ll be getting together in casual settings that will consist primarily of people’s homes. All you’ll need to do is bring yourself, your spouse, or a friend, and an appetizer and beverage to share with the group.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes shawls for those who are ill, grieving, experiencing particularly challenging times or to those who are celebrating special joys. Anyone interested in knitting or crocheting is welcome.

Instruction is available at all meetings for anyone who has never knitted before.
