Developing your relationship with God is a process that takes place all throughout the week, and in a variety of ways. That's why our Bible studies, small groups, rehearsals, and other opportunities happen Sunday through Saturday, here at Istrouma, and all around the Baton Rouge area. Whether it's attending a Bible study that meets at the local coffeehouse on Monday mornings or joining our Worship Choir on Wednesday nights, we hope that you'll find what's right for you in our midweek offerings.
A new semester full of classes and groups for every member of the family kicks off each fall and spring.
