Why Connect Groups?
Do you want to have deeper relationships with your church family? Is there a way to find true christian community that we find described in the Bible?
Among other passages, Acts 2:42-47 gives us a picture of the early church fellowshipping in groups that met in each other's homes. These groups also provided a way to disciple church members while evangelizing and serving the surrounding community. Based on this example, we are launching Connect Groups to meet the needs of fellowship, spiritual maturity and outreach. Our prayer is that you would experience growth through these groups and become more connected to God, this church and this community.
What will a group look like?
Connect Groups are made up of 8 - 12 people who meet at a flexible time that works for you. Our Connect Groups will meet weekly all across the city. We will have groups that meet in homes, in backyards, and some will meet in local restaurants and coffee shops. We believe that when people see the love and true relationships we have in our groups, they’ll want to be a part of one, too.
Connect Groups give us the opportunity to live out God's purposes in our lives. We will experience closer fellowship together, dive deeply into God’s word, serve one another, and encourage each other to live lives of worship intimately connected to God. Connect Groups also give us a place to invite others to come learn about Jesus who may not know him yet.
