Thursday Night

  • St. Thomas Aquinas

Join us a regular Thursday night talk, small group time, and conversation. Thursday nights are the perfect way to get connected to the ministry and meet new people just like you who are longing for community and a place to connect. 

While we have our weekly Thursday gatherings, community groups, and other activities that take place each month, so much of what takes place happens organically throughout the week. The best thing to do is get connected through our Thursday Night gatherings. Once you get connected, there are enough things going on and opportunities to serve that will keep you as active as you desire. It takes a couple weeks to get plugged in. We encourage new members to come at least three times to get a feeling for who we are.

Thursday Night Relationship Series (Feb. 2 - Mar. 16)

  • 6306 Kenwood Avenue Dallas, TX, 75214 United States

In a recent survey with our young adult community about their most pressing questions, the topic of relationships and dating came back as number one. Have you ever considered that while dating is a relatively new concept, the institution of marriage is not… it’s God’s invention? From the beginning, God reveals to us His reasons for creating marriage and how it all centers around our relationship with Him. Join us over the course of seven consecutive Thursday nights as we explore singleness, dating, and marriage and provide practical tips to help you fully live out your God-given vocation.

February 2 - "Marriage: The Ultimate Relationship Goal" with Jim and Anna Lee
February 9 - "Love" with Anne Lucchetti, Ph.D.
February 16 - "Check Your Baggage" with Andrew Gill, LPC-S, LCDC
