Small groups gather to share in fellowship and discussion. Several of our small groups are described below. New groups may form around a seasonal study topic or a new members' class. If you are interested in starting a new group, contact Pastor Bailey. To join an existing small group, you are welcome to simply show up!
monday morning Bible Study group
This women’s bible study group meets every Monday at 9:30 AM in the conference room. The group is made up of both members and non-members of Thompson Memorial Church who insure a peaceful and respectful atmosphere. Everyone is welcome!
Although the focus is the study of thought-provoking books based on Christian theology…the group serves multiple purposes.
The multiple purposes include the following:
- A place to connect with other believers in fellowship and to grow in understanding of the Bible
- Meeting the needs of others in the group in ministry…caring for each other
- Opportunity for fellowship and service with participation in providing meals, setting up for rummage sales, funeral luncheons and coffee hours
- A safe place to ask questions
- A place to share joys and concern
- A place to share your needs
- Opportunity to ask for prayer and to pray for others
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25).
TUESDAY MORNING MEN'S GROUP
All men are welcome to join this group that meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays each month at 9:00am in the Conference Room at the church. We usually are reading and discussing a Christian book or doing a small group study.
The next meeting of the Men's Study Group will be on Tuesday, October 6, at 9:00 a.m. in the Conference Room. We are reading the book The Will of God by Leslie Weatherhead, and we are currently reading Chapter 4.
The Men’s Study Group meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month. All men are welcome!
UNITED PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN (UPW)
On the second Wednesday of each month, UPW meets at 1:00pm in the Conference Room. Presbyterian Women is a worldwide organization of women who come together in the name of Christ to study God's Word and do God's work. One of the big events that our chapter of UPW hosts is a Rummage Sale in the Fall and Spring. Church members, families and friends from the community donate items for the sale. Every dollar that is earned goes to the ministries and missions of our church. We are always looking for new members of our group, so if you have a heart for service and fun, please feel free to join us.
Wednesday night men's bible study
Pastor Stuart Spencer leads a monthly Bible study for men on the first Wednesday of each month. This study is designed for those men who have never studied the Bible before and includes a time for us to share our lives and to pray together. We meet in the Chapel at 7:30pm.
Theology on tap
Each Thursday at 7:00pm we meet at a local restaurant for dinner and then we encourage everyone to stick around because at 7:30 we begin the evening's discussion. We discuss theology, worship, the Bible and so much more. We will be meeting at Vince's Pizza and Restaurant in Yardley.
A group of women who get together on the first Friday of the month to share stories, support each other, and pray together. Each month, we meet at someone's home or a local restaurant for fun and fellowship. All women are welcome to join us at any time.
There are many groups at Thompson Church, and we want to help you find the group that best fits your interest! To see a listing of all of our groups (including mission and serving opportunities), use the button below to visit our Group Finder.
