WHAT IS A CONNECT GROUP?

It is a small group of people gathering together weekly to share food, fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. Connect groups are open to those who are seeking or investigating Jesus and His message. Connect groups exist to deepen relationships with God and with one another. Connect groups help develop and nurture long-term trust and relationships, loving support, and accountability as followers of Jesus.

WHY JOIN A CONNECT GROUP?

Discipleship - Connect Group provides opportunities for believers to learn from each other as we apply the gospel within the intimacy of relationships.

Study - Connect Group provides opportunities to discuss and apply God's Word to real world challenges.

Curiosity - Connect Group provides opportunities to ask questions in a trusted environment that you might not ask elsewhere.

Accountability - Connect Group can provide a more intimate atmosphere of trust to share and develop personal spiritual growth.

Evangelism - Connect Group can be a stepping stone to church worship, it can be easier to invite friends to a small group who are unready to come to church.

Hospitality - Hosting non-family members can be intimidating, but a small group provides opportunity to witness and practice hospitality.

Commitment - Connect Group provides an opportunity to form a commitment and tighter bond with the church.

Prayer - New Testament believers prayed together "with one accord". Connect Group provides the opportunity to join with other believers in a more intimate setting to pray together.

Socializing - Connect Group can help develop a greater sense of Christian community in a disconnected age.
