Looking for a new way to plug in, meet new people, and dive deeper into what you hear on Sundays? Sign up now to join one of several Connection Groups. Groups will meet on various days, at locations of their choosing, either every week or every other week. Some will meet for just a few months, after which time participants may take a break or move to another group. Others are ongoing. This is a great way to meet others and share meaningful discussions, as you strengthen your faith and deepen your knowledge of God’s word.
There are several ongoing Connection Groups:
