DOMINION CITY CHURCH MEETS SUNDAYS AT 10:30 AM

Dominion City Houston is led by Pastor Ahmed and has its roots in Dominion City Church International, which has over one hundred branches across Africa, Europe, Canada, and the United States of America.

BIBLE STUDY FELLOWSHIP (BSF) MEETS MONDAYS AT 6:00 PM

BSF Men’s group offers straight talk and biblical truth built on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Exploring God’s Word together allows men to learn from one another, be challenged and encourage each other to live for something larger than themselves.

During the week, members spend time in personal study of the Scriptures with questions that prompt deeper thought. Once a week they meet in-person or online for small-group discussion around what they’ve read. They also have access to a teaching that applies the truths of Scripture to daily life along with comprehensive lesson notes on the passage they studied.

YOUNG LIVES MEET THURSDAYS AT 5:30 PM

YoungLives​ gather with parenting teenagers and mentors with the support of childcare workers. Members meet for fun, laughter, encouragement and an inspirational message. Other YoungLives​ activities may include Bible study, group outings and life skill instruction.

For questions about Community Ministries, please contact the Parish Administrator at 713.666.3111 or via church@stes.org.
