As we read the Scriptures and even more specifically in Acts 2, we find that believers thrived in community. At Stetson Baptist Church it’s not any different. Research shows that people who are involved in a Group environment read their Bibles, pray, give, and serve more than those who are not in a Group. Simply put, Groups are an essential component to spiritual growth. Here at Stetson Baptist Church, we have three different types of Groups to engage in.

Weekday Groups

Relationships are vital to a believer. During the week, groups meet on and off campus to explore God’s word around a dinner table or in a living room. These groups will often study things that are relevant to their life situation. Whether it is a parenting study or exploring a book of the Bible, these groups provide attendees the opportunity for meaningful discussion and interaction with other members of the group.

Sunday School Groups

It is so important to connect with people that can relate or are in the same stage of life, and during our Sunday school hours, it is easy. Every Sunday morning, you can find many groups of people who, like you, are seeking to discover and live out the purposes of God in their lives. Our Sunday School classes are designed to help everyone feel comfortable. We share our burdens, celebrate victories, and offer support. Across all ages, the Sunday groups follow the same teaching plan. This alignment allows parents to talk to their child about their classes knowing that they both talked about the same topic.

Discipleship Groups

During the year you will find opportunities for short term groups that study a book of the Bible or a topic. These short-term groups will typically meet for 6-12 weeks and work through a book or a topic of study.

Current Studies

  • Kingdom Conversation (55+ Ministry) led by Wayne Gautney Starts 8/18/21 – Meeting Wednesday Nights at 6:00 (ongoing throughout the fall in room 201)
    • Will be discussing a different topic each week. Some examples are: working through grief, being a person of integrity, bitterness & forgiveness.
  • Women’s Bible Study led by Nicki Glenn, – Meeting Wednesday Nights at 6:00 (room 207) – SIGN UP
    • Developing our prayer life to honor God! We aren’t using a specific class book, so there is no homework. The class will incorporate Biblical teaching, practical prayer “lessons”, guided prayer times and testimonies from people who’ve seen God move through prayer. No one will be asked to pray out loud but there will be a significant amount of time spent in prayer.


If all you do is come to worship on a Sunday, you are settling for less than God’s best for your life. Get involved and see what God will do in your life. Life change happens best in the context of relationships and being in a Group is a great Catalyst for meaningful relationships.
