Active Faith Small Group

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” -John Wesley



Active Faith Small Group began with a few members gathering in a home with a desire to grow to be something much bigger. Now, they are an active force in our Church as well as our community as they work to be the hands and feet of Christ through service and fellowship.

“The Washington Street Active Faith Small Group is comprised of members who want to personally reach out to others who are in need.  God provides the vision and direction.  We are his instruments.”

Living Water Project


The Active Faith Small Group, with wisdom and guidance from Rev. Parrish and the generosity of a gift from the United Methodist Women, distributed personal water bottles to our Soup Cellar Patrons.  The bottles allow them to collect water from public fountains, sustaining them long after they leave the fountain.  The bottles bear the name of Washington Street United Methodist as a reminder that they are welcomed, accepted and respected as individuals at our church, just as Jesus loved and accepted the woman at the well in Samaria.
