One way in which the Cox Memorial UMC is in ministry to and with the community is by providing space for various groups. At the current time space is provided for a variety of groups including four AA groups- A Monday evening, 7pm meditation group focusing on the 11th step of meditation and prayer, a Women's AA meeting that takes place at noon every Friday; an open meeting on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm and another open meeting on Saturday's at 9:00am. Another group using the church building on a regular basis is the Mediation and Facilitation Resources of Hallowell which provides court order classes and counseling for couples during times of marital challenges. On Tuesday morning at 9:00am there is a "painting" group for talented artists who enjoy painting in a social setting. Finally, Spectrum Services uses the church occasionally for small group meetings.
