Some describe it as Community, others name it Fellowship; we call it LIFE Groups.

At Connect Church, we believe that group fellowship is essential for growth as a Christian. LIFE Groups provide the opportunity for students and adults to build a stronger foundation for their faith, their relationships, and their families. LIFE Groups are safe environments created to help people take their next step in loving God and loving people.

  • LIFE Groups - Learn God’s Word and Live Community

  • LIFE Groups - Fellowship and Focus on God’s Word

  • LIFE Groups - Encourage and Engage Others

In a LIFE Group, you’ll discuss real life issues, see lives changed, and build meaningful friendships.

These small groups consist of 10-15 people who come together every week or two to experience life with each other. They meet on-campus or off-campus in individual homes at various times of the week to live out Acts 2:42 by sharing a meal, studying the Bible, praying for one another, and building authentic relationships with God and others.
