Adult Ministries

The adult ministry exists to draw us together as Kingdom builders in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Christ through prayer, studying His word, fellowship, and service. 

Small groups, Bible studies, and prayer gatherings are a great way to grow in faith, practicing accountability and becoming stronger disciples for Christ.

There are a variety of vibrant Small Groups available at Dayton UMC for all ages. We’d love to get you plugged into a community. Please send an email through the contact page on our website and Pastor Eric will get in touch with you.


The Senior Teens group at Dayton UMC enjoys food, fun, travel, fellowship, learning and mutual support.The group meets each month on the 3rd Friday at Grindstones Restaurant in Lafayette for lunch at 11:30 am and a program. Several times during the year, the Senior Teens take day trips to interesting places such as museums, dinner theater, and even civic locations like a tour of the jail. The age guideline to be a Senior Teen is 55 or older, but that is not a hard rule.

Tom Mellady is the Coordinator. For more information contact the church office.

M&M stands for the Marthas and Marys among us – those who strive to serve and those who sit in awe at Jesus’ feet. We strive to grow in the faith and grace of our Lord Jesus. We host events such as half-days of prayer, retreats, Bible studies, classes, mentoring, etc. and we serve Him in a myriad of ministries. We would love to have you join us!
