connecting with God and you!

We call our small group meetings Connect Groups. As a small group attendee, you get a level of intimacy, care, and accountability not always found in typical Sunday morning attendance.

What are Connect Groups?

We are in the process of rebooting our Connect Groups in Woodbridge and Stafford. More details to come!

Connect with People

Part of our church’s mission is “connecting with each other.” Connect Groups are a great way for us to do that. They’re a place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study the Bible while supporting and sharing our lives with one another. An average meeting lasts about an hour and a half, followed by some light refreshments.

Grow in Your Faith

In some of our past sessions: We went through a course of study called, Jesus Is ______. We studied the Bible book of Hebrews. We studied the lives of Daniel and Jesus, learning how to stand strong, stay engaged, love others, and do good in the ever-shifting ungodly culture around us in The Daniel Dilemma. We went through a course called Crash the Chatterbox. We examined the story of Gideon, learning that our weaknesses can be God’s strength. We studied Paul’s letters to the Colossians and Philemon. We went through a course called, The Christian Atheist. We explored the subject of Discerning the Voice of God. And we learned together about rethinking Heaven, the resurrection, and the mission of the Church, with a study of Surprised by Hope.

In some sessions, we discussed further the principles and ideas introduced in our Sunday sermons and sermon series. In these “sermon-based” small groups, we imagined the previous Sunday’s sermon as a lecture on Christian living, and your Connect Group as a lab where you got to roll up your sleeves and discuss how the sermon works in real life.

Committed-to-One-Another Community

We hope that you can find a group to plug into. We also realize life can get very busy, but we hope you’ll commit to the other people in your group. Even if you have to miss a week, keep in contact with your group. This commitment to relationships makes Connect Groups work. At the end of each session, you will have the choice of recommitting for another session, trying a new group, or taking a break from Connect Groups altogether. Remember: bite-sized commitments can produce long-term relationships.
