Small Group Ministries for Adults
The United Church of Christ, Southbury offers a variety of classes and groups throughout the year for adults. These small group ministries include theological and biblical studies, book study groups, and classes that cover a variety of topics such as social issues in the US and abroad, financial concerns, and other topics that meet the needs and interests of members and friends.
An integral part of our Christian Education program has been our book study groups. They are inter-generational and encourage discussion on a variety of thought provoking topics among participants. Book study groups provide an excellent opportunity for deepening relationships with one another and growing faithfully as a church together.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
The Tuesday Bible Study meets every Tuesday in the Staff Office from 10:30 am to 11:45 am. The class is open to everyone regardless of your knowledge of the Bible. All one need do is come. Bring your own Bible if you wish, or perhaps come and borrow one. The varied backgrounds of the class members contribute significantly to the discussion. The most important part is to be present and help us as a group to study and reflect on scripture. Help us figure out what it means for our lives. So come be a part of one of the longest running Bible studies in the area.

Upcoming Lenten Book Study
Six Wednesdays starting March 13th at 12 pm in the Social Hall.
Simon Peter is, after Jesus, the single most important figure in the gospels. He is mentioned more than all the other disciples combined. He was an ordinary fisherman, who heard an extraordinary call. He wasn't rich or educated, but familiar with hard work. He was quick tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. Jesus saw in him what others did not, a rock on which to build his church. Join us this Lent as we explore Peter's life and in the process, learn more about Jesus and about ourselves.
