Groups are an important part of Amory First because it's connected to others that we grow in our faith and find support on life's journey. Christians from the beginning gathered together in large groups at synagogues and in small groups in homes to be in deeper fellowship with God and each other. God created us for relationship not only with him but with others too. You are encouraged to find your place in our community of faith by joining one of our Sunday school classes, Bible studies, or small groups. 

upcoming groups

Fellowship and Fixins

Leave the cooking to us on Wednesday evenings. Prior to group meetings each week, we will provide a meal for families starting at 5:00 p.m. Come when you can. The kitchen will be serving from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the Education Building. Meals will include entree with side items, dessert, and drinks. We know kids don't always enjoy the same food as the grown ups so a kid-friendly option is available most weeks. No reservations required and meal costs are by donation only.

women's ministry

United Methodist Women (UMW)


If you know anything about United Methodist Women (UMW), you understand these ladies are committed to inspiring fellowship and serving people in need. The UMW meets on the first Monday of the month at 1:00 PM in the Educational Building Lounge. They believe lives can be changed one penny at a time. That's why at every meeting you will find woman walking into the church with sacks full of pennies. No, they aren't playing penny bingo; they are supporting mission projects all over the place. All women are invited to join them each month as they eat lots of tasty goodies, study the Bible, and work on their various mission projects. 

Bridal/Wedding Showers and Teas

"Celebrating the joys of life" is the motto for this group that provides wonderful social events to celebrate the momentous occasions of life. And they know how to throw a good party! Jesus' first miracle recorded in the Bible occurred while he was celebrating with a family at a wedding party. If it was pretty important to Jesus to be present during such life events...well...enough said. 

men's ministry

Men's Club


The mighty men and young men of Amory First meet the first Sunday of every month at 8:00 AM in the Education Building Lounge for a hearty breakfast. The highlight of the month has to be hands down Mr. Romie's made-from-scratch gravy. Bobbie's biscuits aren't too bad either. We invite a guest speaker each month to share the spiritual food with us as well. It's all free, and it's all good! However, we may still pass the plate anyway to collect a few dollars for local missions.

Sportsman's Banquet

Fall and Spring

In the fall we fry fish and early spring we serve up the finest wild game that can be trapped, shot, or run over. Fry Daddy's fear us and Simmon's Catfish in Yazoo City, MS loves us! I can smell the smoke and the gurgling grease already. These banquets are community-wide events sponsored by Amory First that draw large crowds of people from Amory and beyond. Could be the food or it might be the special guest speakers. We've had Coach Hugh Freeze from Ole Miss, Coach Butch Thompson from Mississippi State, and Matt Wyatt from the Head-to-Head radio broadcast. Proceeds from these events raise funds for our local mission projects.

Local Mission Projects

Our men aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Each year we work on local mission projects such as home renovations in Amory and the MS Delta, hand out school supplies at community events, and buy Christmas presents for needy families to name a few.

chuck knows church series

Chuck Knows Church is an online video series that helps interpret complex subjects in a fun, yet informative, way. Each series features “Chuck” who helps us learn more about our church while inviting us to have deeper conversation with our pastor.

The ORIGINAL SERIES is all about the objects, symbols and terms we often hear in church. Take a couple of minutes each week and have some fun while you learn from Chuck. Each week a different video is released on YouTube and announced on the Chuck Knows Church Facebook page. There are currently more than 90 episodes available on a variety of topics with more being produced. Each episode is approximately 2-5 minutes.
