Groups for Adults

MUMS — Mothers Uniting Mothers — is a community of moms of all faiths, all beliefs, and all walks of life. Our intention is to create a safe, welcoming environment for all mothers. Our topics and programs are geared towards mothers of young children, but all moms of all ages and stages are welcome. We meet every other Wednesday morning from 9:00 until 11:30 at Los Altos UMC. Childcare is provided. This is a time for a much needed break to enjoy wonderful speakers, small group discussion, and refreshments. For more information, visit their website at

Working Moms in Fellowship meets every other Wednesday from 7:30–9:00pm for some get-real fellowship, bible study and serious fun as we navigate our lives as working moms! Our kids range in age from baby to college age and we've heard it all so come and JOIN US, wherever you are in your journey! For more information, email Laura (

GroupLife is about creating and forming real relationships with God and each other by building community within small groups of 6-12 people. Groups meet regularly in a host's home for topical discussions related to everyday life. Group members encourage, support and care for each other to deepen their faith and live out their calling in the world. [Learn more]
