Connect Groups




October to June

Connect Groups (often times known as “small groups”) are a great way to build deeper faith and community. We know it’s difficult to develop close friendships just by showing up on Sundays so we hope and encourage everybody to join a Connect Group in order to have space to navigate life, build strong and lasting friendships, and to grow in faith.

Wanna lead a Connect Group?

Connect Group sign-ups will begin October 3rd and Groups will start meeting the week of October 17th. Connect groups meet every week or every other week (depending on the group) and all groups will finish in the middle of June with natural "holidays breaks”, typically in conjunction with the local schools. 

Due to the pandemic, some groups will be fully in-person (with Covid protocols), some will be fully online, and some will be a hybrid version. Check each group’s meeting style.
