Alpha, Marriage, Life Worth Living, Challenging Lifestyles courses
At any given time, there could be more than one Alpha course in progress. After finishing an Alpha Course, many groups will start a Life Worth Living course or a Challenging Lifestyles course. The Marriage Course is for couples who wish to enrich their relationships. While these courses are offered under the banner of the Alpha course, they nonetheless operate in a small group format. People who have finished any one of these courses are certainly encourage to keep meeting as a group or to join one of the other groups. Please refer to our page on Alpha in this Website for further information.
If you would like to join one of these groups or take one of the courses being offered, or start a new group, please Contact Us.
Why small groups?
Have you ever had an authentic relationship with someone you just see in passing for a few minutes- once a week? We realize that forming closer relationships with the neighbors and new faces on Sunday morning is a challenge. That’s why small groups are so important to St. Thomas. And, we make it easy by offering a variety of groups: men’s, women’s, and mixed (couples, men & women) at almost any time during the week. Weekend, weekday; mornings and evenings. Whatever works best for you.
Small groups, like nothing else, provide a place to build authentic relationships in a personal, comfortable environment right in someone’s home! Here, we hang out, catch up, and join in dynamic discussions about spiritual truth & growth…with people just like ourselves. We just plain have fun!
Our goal is to build a community where nobody stands alone.
What if I don’t know anyone else who’s there?
That’s okay! One of the reasons for small groups is to develop friendships that can’t happen on just Sunday morning. You’ll feel that right away!
I’m so busy during the week that I don’t have time for anything else…
Always a challenge for all of us-but you’re very welcome to just try it for a week or two, and if it doesn’t work, there’s never any obligation.
But I don’t know much about the Bible…
Great! Our studies are always designed to be rich, interesting and relevant to all people regardless of background. Topics and types of studies will vary from time to time. Just ask!
What if I don’t want to join in the discussion?
Absolutely no problem. You choose whatever participation feels right for you.
What if I can’t make it every week?
No problem! While everyone is encouraged to be consistent in attending (and we think you’ll want to!), we know things come up. Also, some groups meet every other week.
Which group should I go to?
We can help you find the group that works best for you!
Hasn’t that group been meeting for a while already? I’d feel uncomfortable “barging in”.
Every group is designed to have an open door and empty chairs ready to be filled at all times. We always welcome new faces! We also start brand new groups as well.
