In any given week, there are small groups of people from our church that meet together, both at church and in their homes all around the city. They are places where we get to know one another better around the things that matter most: Bible study, conversation about our life of faith, checking in about what’s really going on, and prayer. They are places where we can be ourselves and know that there is a group of people who really know—and are praying for—us.
Tuesday Morning Small Group
This group began as a group of young mothers exploring questions of faith and parenting, and has grown to be a place where parishioners can support one another in faith, learn new prayer practices, explore the Bible, and ask important questions about how to live our Christian faith in our contemporary society.
This Group meets weekly on Tuesday mornings in the Parish House, 8:45-10:00 a.m.
Men of St. James'
Men of all ages are invited to join a new weekly small group at St. James' called Men at St. James. The mission of the group is to help men discern how God is working in their lives, and how Christ’s teachings can be applied to our professional and personal lives as men, husbands, and fathers in our contemporary society. The group will always include prayer and reflections on Scripture, but it is not a Bible study group per se: the ongoing objective of the group is to develop a sense of community where men can feel comfortable sharing in an atmosphere of complete confidentiality. This fall, the group will begin with readings, reflection, and discussion of the Gospel of John, exploring how that Gospel offers insights for the way we live our lives now.
Led by Matthew Leaycraft and Jim Olson, the Group will meet weekly on Friday mornings in the Parish House, 7:00-8:00 a.m., beginning October 7, 2016.
If you want to get better connected at St. James' and develop deep friendships with other Christians, consider joining one of our Small Groups. Contact Ryan Fleenor to learn more.
