Our Connection Groups meet at 10:45 AM on Sunday
Connection Groups are designed to make disciples who live lives in community (John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42). As part of a small group, we can grow deeper in our love for God and one another. As wonderful as it is to gather with the whole church family for corporate worship, there is something powerfully unique about an intimate gathering that forces us to think differently than when we are in a big room for worship. Small groups are where much of what is taught from the pulpit begins to be fleshed out in conversation and action. Being part of a Connection Group offers you the opportunity for . . .
1. Spiritual Growth - You can learn, ask questions, involve yourself in the lives of others, and generally make yourself vulnerable among other people who are doing the same in a small group. You just can’t do that in a worship service. Spiritual growth happens better with others, in community, with open lines of communication and freedom to speak into one another’s lives.
2. Deeper Relationships - The smaller the group, the deeper the relationships. You simply cannot know everyone beyond a certain point, and you certainly will not open up about your struggles or ask questions in a large group of people you don’t know.
3. Meaningful Friendships - Small groups deliver meaningful friendships that double as accountability. When people know you, really know you, your life becomes far more transparent, including your sin. Others learn to read you and will call you out for those sins, creating opportunities to deal with real life difficulties as they surface. This is part of what we should expect from good friends. There are also opportunities to discuss the issues with others in the church. Issues that you would only want to discuss openly among trusted friends.
Community matters enough to be prioritized. It needs to be more than an afterthought, but needs to be part of every Christian's focus. We have groups for all ages. We want to help you and your family "get connected" through helping you find the group that is right for you. You’re invited to check one out. Make the choice today to get connected!
