Duke Memorial is committed to being a community where people of all ages grow in their knowledge and trust of God through Jesus Christ. Our adult ministries allow individuals to connect with God and others through friendship, study, service, and prayer. There’s a place for everyone!
Small groups at Duke Memorial provide opportunities to meet new people, learn about God, and grow as a follower of Jesus. Small groups last for 10-12 weeks, and run during the fall and spring. Click here to see an example of what was offered this fall! A new set of small groups will start again in February.
Classes are offered on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour (9:45 – 10:45 a.m.).

All of us have received gifts for ministry, but it often takes some discernment and journeying with others in community to know what they are and how to use them. Click here to sign up for a small group or workshop, or take the online survey, about how to discover and use your gifts for ministry!
