Adults

Spiritual growth is an important part of our values. We believe growing deeper in our faith is something that happens outside of the sanctuary on Sunday mornings.

Whether it's a Sunday school class or one of our weekday offerings, Virginia Beach United Methodist Church is home to a variety of opportunities for you to grow deeper in your faith in fellowship with other members of our community.

Men's Activities

Marriage & Family

Marriage Enrichment

Marriage Enrichment Date Nights are on the first Fridays of each month from October to June. Each evening starts with a group discussion before couples break out into their individual "date nights." A new curriculum is chosen each year, but always focuses on strengthening marriages and relationships through deepening a couple's relationship with God and applying their faith principles to their personal relationship.

Surf Ministry

This unique ministry gathers on Saturdays during the summer on the Oceanfront beach for fellowship and fun on the waves! All ages are welcome to both teach and learn how to surf. Bring your own board or use one of ours!
