connect groups launch

Connect Groups are a great way to build friendships and grow in your faith!

Our Connect Groups are based on interest, common goals and/or life/age-specific activities. There are 3 types of groups: Growth, Social and Serve. We believe life change occurs in the context of relationships.

Our Connect Groups are listed below. Get connected today!
