Prayer Cell Groups

The place to find real community and grow spiritually at Pinole UMC is found in our cell groups.  Just as the human body is made up of cells working in unison, we believe that the local church is most healthy when smaller groups of believers and seekers get together outside of the Sunday service for prayer, ministry, discussion, and sharing life together.  The reason why we refer to these groups as cells comes from our belief that a vibrant church is made up of dynamic groups that are growing and multiplying.   We see the origins of the church beginning with Jesus investing the bulk of his time to a small intimate fellowship of  twelve disciples.  It was within this ‘cell’ group that Jesus built relationships, taught and trained, imparted authority and power, and eventually commissioned to begin the Church.


 

Men’s Ministry

The objective of Men’s Ministry is to disciple and equip the men of Pinole UMC in their roles as men of God, whether married, single, older, younger. We seek to provide a venue for modeling the life of Christ to men. We seek to do this through teaching, fellowship, and service; providing opportunity for fostering spiritual friendships and developing disciplining relationships, so that men can grow in conformity to Christ, specifically in their roles as men.


 

Couple’s Ministry

The mission of the Couple’s Ministry is encompassed by the larger mission of the church. We strive to Love God, Love People, and Serve the World by promoting and demonstrating God honoring marriages built on a strong biblical foundation. Fulfilling marriages don’t just happen. They are built on biblical principles essential to a warm, loving relationship. Fulfilling marriages enable couples to look outward together and discover ways to impact and serve a hurting world. Just as every individual has a unique gifting and calling from God useful for loving others, every marriage also has a unique story and setting useful for blessing others. The Couple’s Ministry at Pinole UMC exists to support couples as they seek God’s best for their life together.


 

Social Justice Ministry

The Social Justice Ministry works to educate the Pinole UMC congregation about issues of social justice, and actively works on behalf of peace with justice efforts in the community, nation, and world. Awareness and action campaigns may include presentations, volunteer opportunities, monitoring legislation, fundraising, and book discussions.
