Life Groups

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

Fall 2020

Staff Leadership: Keli Shipley Cooper, Gwynn Crichton, and 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 stories, making meaning of our world today, and discerning God’s call to us to serve according to Jesus’ Way of Love.

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 life group meetings each week.

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

This fall, we will have six groups that meet at various times of the week below.
Groups will begin meeting the week of September 20th.
