Connect Groups

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging
one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25

You can’t do life on your own. It’s too tough. I (Pastor Matt) can’t do it either. We need others to help and encourage us. We need to connect. For the past few years here, I have found that the connections I’ve developed through our small group have helped me to flourish. I need the connection. I think we all do. That’s why we’re launching our Connect Groups.

You may call them small groups, life groups, discipleship groups, cell groups, etc. but we want to put the emphasis on the absolutely essential connection component of these groups. In these connect groups you will meet about 6 times in the fall (September to December) and 6 times in the spring (January to May). Some groups meet in houses or here at the church. So give one a shot!

Our Connect Groups bring people together to study the Bible, pray for each other, and share the good and the bad of life with others who can help encourage. Connect Groups meet in a variety of locations and at a variety of times.
