Women on the Journey Covenant Group
Women on the Journey is a weekday opportunity for women to reflect on their lives as Christians in the world and to study the Bible in a small group setting. The gatherings focus on the joys and challenges of living our faith in all facets of our lives. Each meeting may include Bible Study as well as readings from the selected book. This year’s group is using Speaking Christian by Marcus J. Borg.
Modern Christians are steeped in a language so distorted that it has become a stumbling block to the religion, says internationally renowned Bible scholar Marcus J. Borg. Borg argues that Christianity’s important words, and the sacred texts and stories in which those words are embedded, have been narrowed by a modern framework for the faith that emphasizes sin, forgiveness, Jesus dying for our sins, and the afterlife. Here, Borg employs the “historical-metaphorical” method for understanding Christian language that can restore for us these words of power and transformation.
Copies of the book can be purchased through Amazon or your favorite bookseller.
The group meets weekly on Mondays, 9:30-11:30 a.m. September through May, beginning September 29, 2022. To join the group or if you have questions contact contact Marty Corbin marty@martycorbin. com Madeleine Crouse email@example.com or Patti Normile firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sisters of the Holy Grail
Sisters of the Holy Grail is an adult women’s formation group that gathers over dinner on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm for fellowship. A light dinner of quiche, salad and dessert are provided each month – just bring yourself! Feel free to invite a friend!
There is nothing to read and no homework – so it is easy to join together with other women as we break bread together and socialize. There may be a few times that we will schedule a short program.
Check the weekly St. Thomas email to find a monthly reminder, or the insert in the Sunday service program.
The only thing we need from you is to RSVP so we can get an estimated number for food.
Please put the co-chairs into your contacts to make it easy to RSVP or to contact us with questions!

Monday Morning Men’s Fellowship Group
Come for the fellowship, stay for the conversation and even earning! The St. Thomas Men’s Breakfast Group is an informal and welcoming group of men who meet on Monday mornings starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Eastgate Panera Bread (located in front of the Meijer superstore on Route 32 off I-275).
We typically start the conversation each week on a given chapter from a shared book to have a common topic which is accessible to all of us and then let the conversation move into life and what’s happening in our world. Usually the readings have something to do with the practices of our Church and/or with our own personal beliefs. Our next book will be, If God is Love, Don’t be a Jerk, by John Pavlovitz. While we may have a topic, we enjoy having the conversation be casual.
For more information, contact Bob Henry at rpjhenry@ gmail.com or just join us Monday mornings at Panera. Newcomers and friends are welcome!
