Life Groups

We are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other. (Romans 12:5b)


Winter/ Spring 2021 Life Groups

Staff Leadership: Keli Shipley Cooper, the Rev. Gwynn Crichton, and the Rev. Rainey Dankel 

The purpose of the life groups is to provide space for adults to grow in deeper relationship with each other as the Body of Christ through sharing our storiesreflecting on Scripture, and praying together. 

These groups are made up of six to eight group members. The groups gather online through Zoom for 90-minutes once a week during an 8-week period, with one longer session of two hours for the first meeting. Each group has two lay co-facilitators who guide the weekly life group meetings.

Life groups are open to anyone. You do not need to be a “member” of the St. Paul’s community.

This spring, we will have seven groups that meet at various times of the week. Groups will begin meeting the week of February 14thThere will NOT be any meetings between Monday, March 29th-Sunday, April 4thdue to Holy Week and Easter. 

Registration is open from Friday, January 15th until Wednesday, January 27th at 12pm.
