Connection Groups meet year-round and are designed to help you connect with others in a similar life stage and to provide a community for Bible study and prayer support. Connection Groups are currently meeting online, effective September 12th, 2021, please join connection classes back to church in person. Please contact our office for details about how you can get connected.

We have multiple groups that meet throughout the week for Bible study, prayer, and accountability. If you are interested in joining or learning more about one of our men’s groups you can email Tim Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fixed Groups (Please register in advance)
Parents of Children with Special Needs
Parenting a child living with a disability (special needs) can be rewarding and fulfilling but just because you’re caring for your special needs child with love and selflessness doesn’t mean you’re immune to the pressures that accompany living with a disability. This group will offer support and understanding to families who are living with the distinct joys and struggles that arise in special families.
GriefShare: Loss of A Spouse
The death of a spouse brings a unique kind of pain. People who are widowed haven’t just lost a loved one—they’ve lost an entire lifestyle. This one-night session takes an honest look at dealing with loneliness, new household responsibilities, relating to others, developing a support network, and finding the strength to go on.
If you’ve lost a loved one, you’ve probably found there aren’t many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare helps you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. The leadership team for GriefShare consists of people who have experienced significant losses in their lives and are examples of the healing and restoration that can occur as an outgrowth of deep grief.
GriefShare: Surviving The Holidays
The holiday season can be a challenge for anyone, but after a loss from the death of a loved one, separation, or divorce, it may seem overwhelming. This holiday program will help you discover how to deal with emotions, what to do about traditions, tips for surviving social events, and how to find hope for the future.
Grief Share meets Mondays in 228-229 from 6:30-8:30 PM.
