WHAT ARE CONNECT GROUPS?
Our connect groups consist of two different types of groups – community groups and focus groups. Our community groups meet in homes across our city and run continuously throughout the year. These groups focus on fellowship, prayer and discussing each week’s sermon. Our teaching groups meet here at the church for a set amount of weeks and address a particular topic in depth.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CONNECT GROUPS?
Connect Groups Have One, Simple Function-to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others (Genesis 2:18, “The Lord God said, it is not good for the man to be alone…”). Only through community can we live the full life God intends for us. Sharing life through connections with others in the body of Christ is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why connect groups exist- to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
