Small Groups

"Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there I am, in the midst of them."  Matthew 18:20  

Are you looking for some company on your Christian journey? There’s nothing more powerful than a small group coming together for study, prayer, and good fellowship. St. Andrew by the Sea is encouraging small groups throughout lower Baldwin County, to meet a variety of needs. Young adults, for example, may be drawn to the Wednesday night circle that meets at our church. Or perhaps you’ll find a lively group of friends in your neighborhood.

Here are some current offerings:

Winter Bible study of Gospels and Acts

Adult Spiritual Growth Ministries will offer a Winter Bible Study, Tuesday evening, Jan 19 through March 8. Our Scripture sources will be the Gospels and Acts. Our supplemental resource will be The Divine Conspiracy: A Master Class for Followers of Jesus, by Dallas Willard. Books will be available at $7.00 each through St Andrew office, 251-968-3900. Each session will begin with a covered dish meal at 5:30 p.m. in the Fellowship hall, with study following at 6:00 in the Covenant SS Classroom

Young Adults Group 

The group usually meets on Family Nights, Wednesdays at the church, starting at 6:00 p.m.  Please join us for good conversation!  Supper and child care are provided.

Several of our men and women have been on the Walk to Emmaus, a three-day spiritual retreat.  In various denominations, it is also known as Cursillo, De Colores, and The Great Banquet.  It's an experience we wish for you, too.  Please click here or speak with Rev. Wood if you'd like to learn more.
