St. Andrew By-The-Sea members and friends enjoy making connections with other folks. It takes some time and some commitment to build the kinds of relationships that result in long-lasting friendships and faith-building in an atmosphere of trust. No one is perfect or has all the answers. Everyone is seeking God at a different place in their journey, but also looking for help along the path to the promise!
The definition of a small group is about 12 persons who agree to meet regularly for support and study at a time and place (on and/or off island) chosen by the group.
In a recent survey, 150 people responded that small group topics of most interest were the Bible, Contemporary Issues, Disciple Bible Study in groups that were for men, for women or for couples. Each group selects a topic and the Education Committee helps to research for appropriate study materials. .
Join your friends and meet new friends as we enlarge our Small Group opportunities!
