Istrouma Small Groups 

At Istrouma Baptist Church, we believe emotional and spiritual growth is fostered the most in small groups. Whether you're a rising middle schooler or a retiree enjoying your golden years, we have a community for you. Our small groups meet on Sunday mornings and midweek at both the Baton Rouge Campus and Ascension Campus

Midweek Small Groups 


During the fall and spring semesters, adult bible studies and other midweek groups meet at both campuses on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM. We invite you to read more about each of our midweek groups and find one that speaks to you!



Hosted in homes around the Baton Rouge area, these Bible studies cover important and relevant topics for women living in today's society. 



Istrouma knows that losing a loved one is a painful experience. We offer GriefShare, a supportive and uplifting small group, so you don't have to go through it alone. Whether you need someone to talk to or just a shoulder a cry on, we're here for you.



Divorce can be a painful, lonely process. DivorceCare, a small group focused on providing support and comfort to those going through a divorce, can help you stay strong throughout the ups and downs.



Are you looking to join a community of moms that understand the joys and struggles of parenthood? 225MOMS may be the perfect small group for you! This group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month during the school year. 



Istrouma believes that it's important for kids to gather for fellowship more often than once a week. Our midweek kids small group meets on select Wednesday nights during the school year. 



While middle and high school can be a busy time full of extracurriculars, it's important for our students to meet during the week and strengthen their church community. Our midweek students small group meets on select Wednesday nights during the school year. 



Whether you're a fresh college graduate or a new parent, finding community within your church body is a great way to build new friendships and strengthen your relationship with God. Our young adults meet in community groups throughout the week for a time of fun, fellowship, and worship.
