Why Connection Groups?


Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is not individual or private. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. We were made for community—relationship with God and with each other. The local church is not merely a place that we attend but a people to whom we belong. The Bible calls us members of the body (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people.

Gospel-centered community is a radical call amid a culture of mere attendance and casual involvement. It involves mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we seek to adorn the person and work of Christ with our lives.


Small, intimate groups are places where our people can connect to the church body. Groups are not perfect and those who participate in them will find them messy at times. However, our hope is that group members will become committed to reform from within. This takes time, prayer, effort, patience, love, trust and hope.

What Are Connection Groups?


Gospel-centered community is the primary means by which we make disciples, and Connection Groups are the main avenue for us to flesh this community out. Our Connection Groups meet weekly in the homes of someone in their group to study and live life together. They meet on different days throughout the week, contain between 12 – 15 people and are made up of men and women from all generations and walks of life.


Our groups use the weekly Sunday message as their curriculum in the form of a Connection Group Study Guide. This allows our faith family to corporately study together week to week. But our groups are so more than just bible study. They involve sharing mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we seek to adorn the person and work of Christ with our lives. No group is perfect, and no two groups are exactly the same. We don’t expect them to be.
