Small Group Learning

“We offer a wide range of small groups and classes for learning.  We try to cater to every age and interest. On Sunday mornings we have 8 classes that gather, some before the worship hour and some after.  Other groups meet at various times throughout the week.  While there may be a variety of teaching styles and topics each week, there is always one goal:  to expand our knowledge of the love of God in Christ Jesus.

Children's Ministry

MPUMC Children’s Ministry reaches children birth through 5th grade. We are dedicated to walking alongside you as you raise your children in the love of Jesus. We provide a welcoming environment and give every child an exciting opportunity to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. Children participate in Sunday school, Sunday worship, a variety of fun-filled weekly programs, and special events. The relationship your child builds with Jesus will shape who they will be for the rest of their lives.

Youth Ministry

Youth Group: 4:00-6:00pm every Sunday 

(during the Knox Co. school year)

Our youth ministry welcomes all 6-12th graders who want to experience the freedom and goodness of God through fellowship, discipleship, and service opportunities. We are a place of love and acceptance and strive to see the friends around us the way Jesus sees them. At Youth Group, we come to play, to be silly, and to learn how to be more like Jesus. Join us every Sunday from 4-6pm during the school year as we grow in faith together!
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy, and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience...above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:12-15


The MPUMC Keenagers are a group of folks, generally 50 years and older, that meet monthly for a prepared meal and program. Generally, the Keenagers meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month, except for the summer months (June thru August). We meet for supper at 5:00pm, have a short devotional, and take care of any group business. The program usually starts around 5:45 to 6:00pm.

Programs are varied, inspirational, informational, or just plain entertaining. We have hosted local political figures, musical groups and individuals, local charitable organizations, missions and other UMC ministries, humorists, and our own pastors.

Scouting at Middlebrook

Middlebrook Pike has been the proud charter organization for two Scouts BSA units for 50 years. Scouting is much more than camping and knot tying- it is a world of activities that teach boys and girls the importance of God, Country, Family, and Self, and how it all ties together. It develops character through achievement and service. And it's FUN!

Cub Scout Pack 146, for elementary school age boys and girls, meets Tuesday evenings in the Historical Building from 6:30 to 7:30. Boy Scout Troop 146, for middle and high school age boys, meets Monday evenings in the Historical Building from 7:00 to 8:30. There is not currently a girls Scouts BSA Troop meeting at Middlebrook, but we welcome anyone who wishes to create and lead one.

If you know a boy or girl interested in scouting, if you would like more information, or if you are an adult interested in volunteering to help boys and girls grow in character, please contact any of the following persons.

Troop 146 Scoutmaster: Adam Miller
Pack 146 Cubmaster: Brittain Cagle
