Studying together. digging deeper.

These small group gatherings are a way for people to grow closer and have more of a sense of community together. As our ministry grows, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to reach a broader spectrum of students across the campus at Missouri S&T, however we do not want to lose the intimacy of gathering together in small groups to be a part of each other’s lives. This depth in the Scriptures and in each other’s lives allows you to pass along prayer requests (either as confidential or public requests) and lift up and encourage those who may be struggling through life.

Worship with Understanding- Mondays @ 6:30pm
Jason Courtney & Declan Ortinau

In this small group, we will be exploring what it means to sing praises with understanding.

Then, the group will choose songs that they have heard for us to examine using the scripture. That way we can sing praises to God with a deepened understanding, or perhaps learn that some songs may not be the best for congregational worship.
