Connect Groups

Connect Groups

OUR VISION

To see every person living a biblical lifestyle in community with others. At the very heart of our Connect Groups is a desire to see you grow in your relationship with Jesus, while traveling through life with people who have the same goal. In a Connect Group, eight to twelve adults in the same stage of life and area of town intentionally engage with one another to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. You’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you discover in the Bible, as you encourage others to do the same. We firmly believe that being in community with others through Connect Groups is not a program to participate in but a lifestyle to live for every believer.

TYPES OF CONNECT GROUPS

Our Connect Groups are designed with you in mind. We offer Connect Groups for adults in various stages of life:

WHAT TO EXPECT

Connect Groups are not designed to be another church service, nor are they classes taught by Bible teachers. Connect Groups are designed to be enjoyable, relational, and relevant to your spiritual growth at your particular stage in life. At Connect Group you will…
  • Enjoy fellowship with one another and have fun!
  • Grow spiritually while gleaning biblical insights and applying them to everyday life
  • Minister to and serve one another with your gifts and talents.
  • Reach out to others and invite them in.
  • Worship and pray together.
  • Serve the community as a team.
The class ends with an opportunity to make your connection to and membership in the church official. We offer Church 101 every month. See all upcoming Growth Track events. Childcare is provided.

WHEN AND WHERE DO CONNECT GROUPS MEET?

One of the exciting things about Connect Groups is the flexibility to decide the time and place to meet that is most convenient for everyone. Groups meet in homes, coffee shops, restaurants, parks, bowling alleys, and any other place that the group chooses. All we ask is that groups meet at least twice a month so that meaningful relationships and spiritual growth can naturally occur. Connect Groups meet on a trimester basis, with breaks in between;
