Meeting with a small, trusted group to share insights and application of
lessons from Holy Scripture is an amazing way to step into being a true
disciple of Christ. Small groups can also offer the
benefits of connecting in more than a superficial way with fellow
members of St. Augustine’s, developing trusting friendships, gaining
knowledge and practice of one’s faith, and serving the greater community
in some way. Click on any of the links below to find out more about
meeting times, discussion topics and/or service opportunities for these
various groups. We’d love for you to give one or more of these a try!
The goal for the Youth program at St. Augustine’s is to support the spiritual growth of our young people through discussions, play and work; to encourage using the Bible as the source of God’s wisdom; and to develop lasting and loving friendships. St. Augustine’s Youth Group is open to young people from 5th through 12th grades. The group— under the guidance of Youth Minister Jesse Heath —meets each Wednesday evening during the school year from 7-8 p.m. for a lesson, games, and fellowship. Other special events are scheduled about once a month—ranging from service projects to fun excursions. Our church’s young people are encouraged to invite their friends to join them for any and all youth activities. Members of the Youth Group also participate in a summer mission/work trip to serve residents in impoverished communities. If you want your children to be involved, no enrollment is necessary—just email the address below to get information about upcoming events. If you’re interested in volunteering to assist with this important ministry, your help will be welcomed! All volunteers are expected to attend a Diocesan “SafeChurch” training workshop when it is offered. All other training will be provided “on the job.”

The Mission of St. Augustine’s Story Groups is to provide an opportunity for small groups of 8-12 people to meet weekly, study the upcoming week’s Gospel Reading, share prayer requests and ‘do life’ together. Groups are based on shared demographics or interests of members. Current Story Groups include our Social/Political Justice Group, 55+ Co-Ed Group, and FROGS Women’s Group. Groups meet both in person and virtually. Each group makes an outreach or service effort throughout the year as well.

Shining Knights is one of the
longest-standing fellowship ministries at St. Augustine’s—and for good
reason: FOOD! If you like food and crave social interaction with
like-spirited members, this ministry may be for you!
Shining Knights dinner groups are
another easy and fun way to get acquainted with your fellow
parishioners. Groups are comprised of 6 to 8 people. Members rotate
hosting a monthly potluck dinner over the course of six months. The
host/hostess is responsible for the location and the main course. Other
members bring side dishes (appetizer, salad, dessert, etc.) coordinated
by the host.
New groups form every spring and fall. There are no responsibilities only fun and fellowship
whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:34
The Empty Nesters is an informal group of adults that enjoy fellowship and good food. The group meets at 6:00 p.m. on the last Friday of each month (except Lent, November, and December) at various restaurants in the Edmond and Oklahoma City area. Each participant is responsible for paying for his or her own meal. Every adult parishioner is invited to join the group at any time. You are also encouraged to bring friends. The more, the merrier! We are always open to suggestions for places to meet and eat!
St. Augustine’s is the chartered home of the newly-formed (in the Fall of 2015) Cub Scout Pack 101. The pack has grown quickly to over 25 scouts and adult leaders, including many of our own church members. Due to great growth and activity the pack has earned Gold status with the Boy Scouts of America.
Pack 101 meets every Tuesday evening during the school year from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. It is open to boys in the 1st through 5th grades. We have also started a Lion’s program for kindergartners. New Scouts and leaders are always welcome. The Boy Scouts of America will provide all of the leader training needed.
If you are interested in becoming a leader, or if you have a little one who wants to join the pack, please contact BoyScouts@sac-okc.org.
