Want to lead a Connect Group?

  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.

Bullet Journaling for Busy Christians 
Lizzi Barancin and Brenda Miller will be leading a time of fellowship for those who are interested in learning to use (or continuing to use) a journal to organize their life, sermon notes, devotionals, etc. Men and women are welcome - just bring their own journal.  This group will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 630-8p at the New Madison Public Library (142 S Main St )
Clinic Outreach Ministry
Mike, Gary, and Jay have felt called to reach out to the clinic across from the church. We do not want to just be that church across the street, but to be "The church”...To be true friends for those who are struggling with substances. We want to let them know that “we all fall short " and can benefit from connection- a smile, a conversation and encouragement...To connect them to the person of Jesus.
 We start setting up at 6:30am, as the clinic is open on Sundays from 7:00 to 9:00 am. We will pass out donuts and coffee and along with love, the willingness to pray with them.
Women's Fellowship 
Rebekah Thurston would like to invite women of all ages, in all walks of life, to join a community fellowship group. In the book of Acts, it says the early church regularly came together in fellowship, and this group was created to schedule time for that purpose. Women of all ages and stages are welcome to come chat, and deepen relationships with one another. It’s located at Hayes Arboretum to provide a child friendly environment for those with little ones. We will meet every Friday at 10am at Hayes Arboretum, 801 Elks Rd, Richmond, IN 47374
