Welcome to Wine and the Word, a new 2016 small group learning opportunity at St. Andrew University.
Overview: Faith was never meant to be an individual thing. The way that faith takes root is through our relationships, by being a part of a community that holds Christ at the center, sharing joys and burdens together. So this fall, get together with your friends for a glass of wine (or your beverage of choice) and the Word of God. The focus is on forming and caring for relationships and inviting God to be a part of it, so your time will be spent on conversation around some simple topics for the evening.
Format: Each month beginning in October, a 5-10-minute web-based video by a St. Andrew pastor and accompanying questions will be posted on this webpage with accompanying small group questions. This is not a lecture, nor a book study.
Meeting places and times will vary: Gather in homes, at a local coffee shop, or where ever your group wants to meet. Location and times are determined by each group. All you will want is internet access.
There are two ways to register. If you have a group of people with whom you would like to participate, one person can register the whole group. Or, if you want to meet new people, we will form groups for you. Click the link below that fits your circumstance.
