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 in one semester. Members take turns hosting and meet at times that suit their sched-ules. Email Ms. Karen Strickland at kstrickland@waldron.com.
