Connect Groups


Connect Groups have one, simple purpose—to bring people together to experience the full life God has for us. We believe God created us to live in community with others and only then can we experience the full life He intends for us.

We believe life change happens in the context of relationships.  Meaningful relationships can be hard to find, and Connect Groups exist to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to us.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
