What are connect groups?
Simply put, a Connect Group is a small group of people who meet regularly to learn more about God, to grow in their personal Christian lives, and to develop supportive friendships with others who have similar desires. Our Connect Groups typically meet biweekly, either at the church or at a host’s home.
WHAT HAPPENS AT CONNECT GROUPS?
Most Connect Group meetings last about two hours. A typical meeting will include worship, a teaching and discussion, personal sharing, prayer and a snack or meal. Periodically, most Connect Groups also schedule social events and participate in service projects together.
WHY JOIN A CONNECT GROUP?
Attending corporate Sunday services is very important, but by itself it can not supply everything needed for a vibrant and joyful Christian life. Connect Groups are designed to supplement the Sunday services by:
Providing a place for you to freely discuss your personal questions about God and Jesus Christ.
Introducing you to new Biblical truths through a short teaching and subsequent group discussion.
Helping you to develop supportive friendships with a smaller group of people with whom you can share life’s joys and struggles.
Providing an opportunity for involvement in outward-focused service projects.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDCARE?
Many groups provide childcare at the meeting location. The current Connect Group information link below will indicate the childcare status of each group. Most groups encourage, but do not require, a small donation to help cover childcare costs.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A GROUP?
You might choose a group based on a recommendation from a church friend, a convenient meeting location/day/ time, or your current life stage. And don’t worry; you don’t have to settle on a Connect Group after just one visit. It’s okay to check out several before choosing the right fit for you and your family. Regardless of the group you choose to visit, please call ahead to confirm the next meeting date and location.
