connect groups

Do you want to grow spiritually, but you're not sure what step to take? Want to make close Christian friends, but you're not sure how to start those friendships? Check out a Connect Group!

True life change happens best when we gather in circles, rather than in rows, because spiritual growth is not a DIY project. If you want to grow in your faith in Christ, we would love to help you find a group where you can thrive.

Connect Groups gather for a couple hours once a week in a home or at the church. The 6-12 people in the group hang out, discuss a video and some Scriptures, and pray for one another. If you have questions about Connect Groups, please check out the Connect Group FAQs below.

We offer Connect Group sign-ups 3 times a year in the fall, and spring. If you have any questions, please email Jed Berry and he will help you find a group that is right for you.

What is a Connect Group?

A Connect Group is a small community of 6-12 people who meet together once a week to connect with friends, care for each other, and grow in their faith in Jesus. In a group, you will have the opportunity to share your life with fellow Christ-followers and take your walk with Jesus to the next level. We want everyone to be cultivating a greater faith in Him, and have a place to belong. We would love to welcome you into one of our Connect Groups!

When and where do Connect Groups meet?

Connect Groups meet throughout the week on various days, times, and locations. The group host and members decide on a regular time to meet.  There are many groups to choose from based on location and your personal schedule.

How do I get into a Connect Group?

You can also let us know that you are interested in a group using by filling out the Connect Card during a Sunday service, or at the Community Corner in the lobby during group sign ups in the fall, and spring.

What if I attend a group once and it isn't a good fit?

It's ok! We can help you find a group that is a better fit for you.

Is there childcare available for the Connect Groups?

The childcare arrangement is different for every group. Most groups do not offer childcare, but there are a few that are designed for parents. One way that these groups might provide childcare is to pool their funds to pay for a baby sitter during their Connect Group.

Is there any cost to attend a Connect Group?

For most Connect Groups, there is no cost involved. A handful of groups may have a cost to pay for study materials or childcare.

What is the format for a Connect Group?

Every group is unique, but all of our groups spend some time catching up over refreshments, discussing their faith and the Scriptures, and praying together. The discussion usually is focused on a video teaching and the related Scriptures.

How long will the average Connect Group meeting last?

A typical Connect Group meeting usually lasts between 1.5 to 2 hours. However, meeting length is unique for each group. The group host will communicate the length of the meeting to their group.
