CONNECT GROUPS

“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.” Acts 2:42 (NLT)

WHAT ARE CONNECT GROUPS?

We base our Connect Group Settings on the relational circles we see in the New Testament. Jesus formed a relational circle of 12 disciples in the Gospels (Luke 6:13). The church of Jerusalem in the Book of Acts met in relational circles from house-to-house (Acts 2:46). A typical Connect Group will be a gathering of 6-15 people. Most of our groups are “open” groups where first-time guests can be invited to any individual group session.

Connect Group Resources

Connect Groups use prepared studies that are selected from a pre-approved list of options to choose from. Weekly studies can last anywhere from four weeks to twelve weeks. These studies happen during one of our three groups windows during the year (Fall, Winter and Summer). A typical group term varies from 8-12 weeks in length with 4-6 week planned breaks in between.
