Small Groups

A Trinity Small Group is a caring and intentional gathering of individuals committed to meet regularly for the purpose of growing as disciples of Jesus Christ and in Christ-like relationship with each other. Small Groups serve as an additional opportunity for Bible study and topical studies beyond Sunday morning offerings.

Why Join A Small Group

Join A Small Group
Register for a Small Group by calling 210-738-7740 or filling out the online form.

We offer approximately 24 short-term small groups each year. Each group meets weekly for 8-12 consecutive weeks.

Adult small groups are a great place to connect. While on earth, Jesus asked his followers to “Love each other, just as I have loved you” (John 13:34). That same challenge applies to those of us that want to follow Him today. Relationship is at the heart of our faith. As part of a Bible Study group we can know others and be known by others; we can pray for others and be prayed for; we can encourage others and be encouraged. If you have not already done so, we hope you will connect with a small group of friends with whom you will grow in God’s love. New groups are offered three “semesters” a year.
