As good as our Sunday morning worship service is, it’s not enough for you to become all that God wants for you. God made us for relationship and our Connect Groups provide an environment where relationships can thrive, where people can be known, cared for, nurtured, encouraged, and loved. God never intended for us to live the Christian life alone. We were created for relationship and our Connect Groups provide an environment where we can grow in relationship with God and each other. Connect Groups are for all ages and walks of life. We meet at 9:45 on Sunday Mornings.
Three-fold purpose of our Connect Groups
Connect with God and His Word (Growing in intimacy with God).
Connect with each other (Growing in community with other believers).
Connect with the lost (Growing in influence with the unsaved).
What Do You Do in A Connect Group?
In a Connect Group, we study God’s Word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where we pray, fellowship, care for, encourage, love, and serve one another.
Joining a Connect Group will give you the opportunity to know others and be known, to care and be cared for, and to love and be loved. When you are involved in a Connect Group, you will be missed when you are not here! Whether you are just checking things out, a new believer, or have been a Christ-follower for quite a while, you need to keep growing and you need encouragement.
In a Connect Group, you will see how God is actively at work around you, as you hear biblical truths discussed and applied. Your faith and your relationship with God and with others will be strengthened.
