2. Connect With Others
"…so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others" Rom. 12:5; Gal. 6:2; 1 Cor. 12:27; Matt. 18:20
Our Connections Ministry is made up of a variety of small groups that are designed to help people get integrated into the life of our church body and provide opportunities for them get connected in meaningful, beneficial relationships with others in our congregation.
This ministry includes our:
- Connect Groups - These groups meet twice a year (spring & fall) for 6-8 weeks. We offer adult and child-friendly (built in childcare & children's curriculum) groups. The focus is spiritual growth and building Christ-centered community.
- Life stage and Activity groups - These groups can meet on a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis and are geared towards ministering to people with common interests or life situations. We are always looking to expand our group offerings in these areas so if you have an idea for a group that might fall into one of these categories we'd love to hear from you!
- Men's and Women's study groups - Groups that minister uniquely to men or women through gender specific curriculum or other materials.

According to 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, God has placed spiritual gifts in the lives of every believer and those gifts are not for their own benefit but for the benefit of the body of Christ as whole. Through Bible based study time, prayer, fellowship and shared service to others, believers are inspired to use their gifts to encourage and build each other up in faith and help one another towards the goal of spiritual maturity in Christ.
