Connect Groups

What are connect groups?

Connect Groups are gatherings of 8-15 people who meet on a regular basis. The purpose of each group is to offer
COMMUNITY, CARE, and GROWTH opportunities for its members. 
Community – How we develop relationships.
Care – How we support, encourage, and help each other throughout the seasons of life.
Growth – How we challenge each other to grow spiritually, personally, and relationally. 

How do I know which group is best for me?

You can identify the best group for you by asking yourself these questions. Whichever one most resonates with you will help narrow down your options.

What do I need to know about the Christian Faith? Where do I begin?

Try an Alpha Group

Alpha Groups are designed to help people who are new to faith or exploring faith, to understand the fundamentals of Christianity. 

Alpha is an 11-week group with two cycles per calendar year. The fall semester launches in September while the spring semester launches in January. Each session is one-hour long with a 30 minute video presentation followed by discussion.
