As a small group attendee, you get a level of intimacy, care, and accountability not always found in typical Sunday morning attendance.
In the Winter 2018 Session (January 16 – March 18), we are going through a study of Discerning the Voice of God with Priscilla Shirer.
What are Connect Groups?
Each year we have Winter, Spring, and Autumn sessions, which run 9–10 weeks. Connect Groups do not meet in July, August, or December. The Winter 2018 Session runs from January 16 to March 18.
Connect with People
Part of our church’s mission is “connecting with each other.” Connect Groups are one of the best ways we 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 the Winter 2018 Session of Connect Groups, we are going through a course of study called, Discerning the Voice of God! We will be learning how to recognize when God speaks. If hearing God seems challenging, we invite you to explore a more intimate relationship with Him, one that can make hearing Him—His will, heart, and voice—your ongoing experience. Discover how you can listen with greater confidence, clarity, and discernment.
In some sessions, we discuss further the principles and ideas that were introduced in the previous Sunday’s sermon. In these “sermon-based” small groups, imagine the previous Sunday’s sermon as a lecture on Christian living, and your Connect Group as a lab where you get to roll up your sleeves and discuss how the sermon works in real life. Each week there will be a series of questions related to that Sunday’s sermon that you can download right here on this page.
We hope that you’ll attend all nine to ten weeks of each session. We also realize life can get very busy, but we hope you’ll commit to the other people of 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.
