connect groups

We have realized the best environment for people to grow and come to a better understanding of their faith is through small groups. We have developed an awesome opportunity for you to do so through Connect Groups.

You will have the ability to form a relationship with God, as well as make new friends while you grow together spiritually. Connect Groups may be campus-specific or focused on a particular season of life such as Life Recovery, Marriage, Young Adults, Blended Families, and more.
If you have any questions or are interested in leading and/or hosting a Connect Group send us an email using the button below. We will be in contact with you to walk you through the process.

Current Connect Groups

Want to lead a Connect Group?

We'll be launching our Fall Session of Connect Groups in September and we're looking for new Connect Group Leaders.  Whether you're interested in leading a study, starting a recreation group to get to know people through an activity, have a particular passion for a ministry of support, or want to go long term and build a life group - we need you!  Let us know what you're thinking about and we'll contact you to discuss what it looks like and how to move forward.
