Connect groups provide an opportunity for you to meet others and build friendships in a relaxed and social environment.
Whether you are a pensioner, young adult, mom with a busy schedule or business man looking to connect with other likeminded men, we trust that there will be a group that best suits your needs.
We believe real life change happens in the context of authentic relationships, which is why we are a church made up of small groups called connect groups. In the Bible, they worshiped in the temple, but personal ministry happened “house to house.”
“You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.” Acts 20:20
CONNECT GROUPS PROVIDE THREE THINGS:
1. A place to connect with others.
“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
2. A place to protect each other.
“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16 NLT
3. A place to grow together.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
How Connect Groups Work:
A connect group is an intentional gathering of people who meet regularly. Since God designed us for relationships, we believe it is through the connections made in connect groups that God will help us grow. People form groups around what matters in their lives. This can look like connecting with people who share similar interests or are at the same stage in life as well as finding people who have experience in an area in which you want to grow. Connect groups are also where we pray for each other and support each other. Connect groups meet once a week in various locations, and with many groups to choose from, we believe there is a group out there for you.
