Discipleship happens intentionally. St. Matthews Baptist Church offers a myriad of opportunities for people of all ages to grow in their faith through learning and becoming more like Jesus. Following are lots of ways we can grow as individuals and as a community of faith.
Sunday Morning Bible Study Groups
Due to the Pandemic, some groups are currently meeting in person, while others are meeting online. Sunday Morning Bible Study groups begin at 9:15 a.m. We have 16 adult classes. Some are gender or age specific. All are designed to help one grow in Bible knowledge while also growing in friendship and faith with one another.

Pilgrim’s Journey Groups
St. Matthews Baptist Church is committed to making more disciples and even more effective disciples. One important part of our discipleship-making efforts has been The Pilgrim’s Journey, which we created at SMBC. The Pilgrim’s Journey 1.0 is a nine-month, small group, discipleship experience designed to help us be more like Jesus in what we know, become, and do. We also added Pilgrim’s Journey 2.0, as a second year to further deepen this discipleship experience.
