Adult Fellowship & Learning


Spiritual Growth & Study

On Sunday mornings, two adult Sunday School classes meet. In Fall 2019, the Koinonia Class is using the “Feasting on the Word” discussion guide to apply Biblical texts to daily life. The Living the Questions Class is preparing for a more meaningful holiday season with “Unplugged: the Christmas Machine.”

St. Paul’s Prayer Group gathers each Tuesday morning at 9 am to pray for the needs of the church, community and world.

A weekly Bible Study meets on Thursday mornings at 10 am.

The Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Selections range from modern fiction and classic novels to thought-provoking non-fiction. Books for Fall 2019 include Holy Envy by Barbara Brown Taylor (October 15) and Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverini (November 19).

Fellowship & Fun

A variety of small groups help people connect with one another and form deeper relationships of support and encouragement.

JOY (Just Older than Young Adults) hosts events in one another’s homes, including cookouts, game nights, and outdoor movie nights. While there is no age limit, most group members are in their mid-20’s to mid-40’s.

Disciples Men’s Fellowship meets at K&W Cafeteria at 6 pm on the 4th Tuesday of each month.

Disciples Women’s Ministries includes four different “circles” of women which meet monthly:

  • Esther Circle meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6 pm in member’s homes or restaurants, or embarks on local adventures like attending a NC Courage Soccer Game.

  • Mary Circle meets the first Tuesday of the month at 6 pm for potluck dinner and to share the ups and downs of life. The group rotates between meeting at St. Paul’s and member’s homes.

  • Priscilla Circle meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm, at St. Paul’s or in member’s homes, to do service projects such as assembling hygiene kits for farmworkers, and to learn about issues important to the group.

  • Ruth Circle meets the second Tuesday of the month at 10 am at St. Paul’s to engage in meaningful study and discussion, or to complete service projects such as making Linus blankets.
