Connect Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues, as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church.
Connect groups provide a great structure that gets us closer to what being the church is really all about. It's not about having one more thing you "need to" or "have to" do in order to be a Christian, rather this is something we strive for as believers: to be in community with those who will encourage, uplift, and also spur us on to growth.
Our goals with connect groups are:
-to get to know one another on a deeper level
-to break bread together
-to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere
-to have a place of open and safe discussion
-to pray for one another
-to draw others into the vision for the church
