Small Groups



God does not expect or want us to travel alone. We are blessed by Christ’s companionship as well as the care of one another. Small groups offer ways to both give and receive support from fellow travelers on the journey of faith.

Companions in Christ is a small group for women that meets in the conference room on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. for bible study, book study, and companionship in life. During the summer, Companions will meet monthly instead of weekly. For more information, contact the Rev. Erin Hensley at ehensley@stjohnsroanoke.org.

Foyer Groups are small supper groups that meet four times each semester. Groups include newcomers, longstanding members, singles, and couples. People find out their groups at the kick-off potluck supper. Members take turns hosting and meet at times that suit their schedules once a month for three months. Praying together at the close of a group’s time is an option. We recommend Compline or Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families, which can both be found by clicking The Daily Office on the left hand side of bcponline.org. To find out more, email the Rev. Erin Hensley at ehensley@stjohnsroanoke.org.

The Men’s Prayer and Accountability Group is a group of faithful men who meet in the library on the second and fourth Fridays at 7:00 a.m. for prayer, shared stories, and book studies that inform both life and faith.

The St. John's Book Club is a monthly discussion of books, which include both works of fiction and non-fiction, led by the Rev. Mary Mackin. Whether you come once or once a month, you will enjoy this opportunity for literary conversation in the context of faith. Refreshments are always provided. This group meets the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the fourth floor conference room.For information, contact the Rev. Mary Mackin at mmackin@stjohnsroanoke.org.


The Greiving and Healing Group is an ongoing open support group that meets in the Glassy Glass Room (Room 203) every Tuesday from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. except on holidays.  For more information, contact The Rev. Kathy Dunagan at msktkelly@gmail.com
