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 focus 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.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
You can sign up for a community group by scrolling below and emailing the group leader, or by visiting the connect center after service on Sunday. Our focus groups change throughout the year, but you can find a current list of our topical group studies by clicking here.

Our desire is that young adults would learn the importance of community by experiencing it with a group of their peers. This group is designed to share quality time with one another in fellowship and care that will hopefully go beyond this evening together. We share a meal together then join in a time of verse-by-verse study of a book in the Bible.

Catherine and Mateo attended the same community group for a few years before finding each other. Mateo proposed to Catherine on the Springs Church stage during service. They have 5 children, 5 grandkids and 2 dogs. After being ministered to in a community group, they’re leaving the comfort of their ‘nest’ to give back to the body.
