• lenten small groups

    This Lent, Saint Matthew will be engaging in a church-wide study centered around N.T. Wright's Surprised by Hope. Groups will be viewing a video and then having a guided discussion. For those who want to explore the material more deeply, there are weekly recommended readings in the book to accompany each week's video session.

    If you want to participate in the churchwide study, please purchase your own copy of Surprised by Hope Participant's Guide. We do not want the cost of materials to keep you from participating, please contact Kristina McConnell at the church office if you need support with purchasing the book.

    We encourage you to join a group or form a small group or pod based on your own comfort level. For more information on leading a group, please contact Tami Gomez by February 10th to receive information about the video that accompanies the study. 

    To join a group, please select the group that fits best for you and click to sign up:
