Are you new to St. Alban's and are interested in our Small Groups?
Our Small Groups are committed to two things:
Fellowship. Small Groups gather in people's homes to foster relationships. We believe that an essential component to being a Christian is simply spending time with other Christians and enjoying the company of believers. Because relationships are the end goal of small groups, the time spent fellowshipping (a churchy word for hanging out) is essential, and as a result each small group gathering has time alloted for fellowship. We also believe that part of being in a Small Group is fellowship with God. To that end, each group ends with Compline, a beautiful service of prayer from The Book of Common Prayer. Through prayer, we grow in our fellowship with the Holy Trinity.
Faith. Small Groups are also devoted fostering and encouraging an active "living" faith. Each Small Group spends time discussing the Scriptures, a book, or key questions of the faith. Small Groups are places where our faith can be challenged, deepened, and encouraged. The readings that the groups discuss are there to aid in developing a mature and lively faith. Faith is also encouraged in Small Groups through service projects. Groups can volunteer their time and gifts to serve others in Waco. Through discussion and service Small Groups are great places to enrich your faith.
About Small Groups
These groups are led by St. Alban's members and meet in homes. Groups meet at different times during the week, some meet Sunday after church, others on Sunday evenings, and others on a weeknight. These groups are a time for people to get to know others and to discuss a book or the Scripture together. This past year we discussed Henri Nouwen's beautiful classic The Return of the Prodigal Son. We also pray for each other and use a beautiful brief service called Compline from The Book of Common Prayer. Groups meet September through May.
If you'd like to join a small group (or are thinking about it), contact the The Rev. Neal McGowan.
