You are invited to share your passion or interest and start a new small group. You do this by inviting at least two other people to join you for a scheduled time. Those people can be members of St. Ansgar’s and/or neighbors, relative, friends.
Some examples of possible small groups that we have offered in the past are groups that hiked or golfed or those that cooked together or made cards together.
We are thankful for those who are willing to lead small groups in our church. Some start and they are so much fun, they just keep going: Knitting, Quilters, Walking, Book Club, Bowling, Fantasy Football and the Concert series to name a few.
We invite you to lead the way in growing friendships and meaning here at St. Ansgar’s
