Building Community and Relationships
At Connect Church, we believe that real life change happens in the context of relationship. The greatest transformation happens within community…because life is meant to be shared! The best way to become a part of that community at Connect Church is by joining a Connect Group.
Connect Groups are comprised of small groups of people that meet throughout the week at many different locations around our city. They’re designed to help you build healthy relationships with others in a safe environment, while growing together spiritually.
There will be several options to choose from. Whatever your stage of life, there will be a Connect Group for you!
Connect Groups Provide Three Things:
1. A place to CONNECT
“…yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.” (1 Corinthians 9:22 TLB)
It is easy to feel alone in a crowd. Small groups are an open door into the life of our church family. When you are in a small group, you experience the love and strength of biblical community.
2. A place to PROTECT
“We know what real love is because Christ gave up His life for us. And so we also ought to give up our lives for our Christian brothers and sisters.” (1 John 3:16 NLT)
Imagine someone you can call when you’re discouraged, someone to pray with when you are doubting, and someone who can teach you more about what God is like. Imagine a loving community of people who notice when you are away, gently sharpen you when you need it, and who help you share your faith with others. Connect groups are a place where you are protected and supported.
3. A place to GROW
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
Connect Groups are a place you can be equipped to become more like Jesus and to live a faith-filled life. This is how leaders are developed. We believe that every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. We want to see you grow, flourish, and become all that God has called you to be!

Fall Group Semester begins September 17th!
After summer break, when the kids are settled back into school routine, is the ideal time to focus on adding a new and exciting dimension to your personal and spiritual lives: CONNECT GROUPS.
To give you a taste, “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” will return in AUGUST. The whole church will devote one evening to meet new people in an intimate, home setting, centered around a great meal. This is a time of genuine fellowship – much like attending a small group.
Details about this and ALL THINGS GROUPS, can be found at the GROUP CENTER in the church lobby. A Group Team Member will be available to offer you the latest information and answer your questions.
Group signups will begin online at the end of August.
