During this time, it has never been more important to have community. Connect Groups will continue to meet at each group’s normal time and day... but virtually! Our Connect Group Leaders can’t wait to get you connected and will walk you through all of the “How-To’s” of meeting online. If you haven’t signed up for a group yet, what better time than now? To find a group and sign up, go to this link on this page. Once you sign up for a group, the leader will reach out to you to get to know you and show you the ropes. In an uncertain time, we want you to be connected with people that will support you and pray with you every step of the way!
What are Connect Groups?
A Connect Group is an intentional gathering of people where you can connect with others on a regular basis who share your interests, who are at a similar stage in life, or who have experience in an area where you would like coaching and/or support. Our groups are categorized into four areas:
Women: "We're mothers. We're wives. We're single moms. We're sisters, protectors, lovers and nurturers. We are better together! We welcome you with open arms, seeking to encourage, support, equip and connect you with God."
Men: "Ever wonder: where can I find a group of guys that get it? You know, understand what it's like to struggle being a Godly man in a very un-Godly culture. Join a connect group. Let's hang out!"
Couples: "Nothing has been more life-giving to us than having other couples to live life with and grow in our faith with. Sharing in the wins, and the losses, of life with other couples fills our cup!"
Gather: These groups gather people around a common goal or purpose: Global Service, Support, Young Adults, Activities. "For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them."
Why should I join a Connect Group?
It is through doing life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring healing, support and encouragement to our lives—whether we realize we need it or not. Your Connect Group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life.
How often do Connect Groups meet?
Our Connect Groups meet for three semesters a year—spring (13 weeks), summer (6 weeks), and fall (13 weeks). During the semester, most groups meet once a week. During this time of Covid19 our groups are meeting on line using Zoom.
Connect Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
We know that people’s schedules are busy, but that most people can make a 13 week commitment. This gives you an opportunity to join a Connect Group, meet some great people, grow in your faith, and then decide if you want to stay with that group or try a different one.
