VINEYARDCONNECT GROUPS

 

WHAT ARE CONNECT GROUPS?

Simply put, a Connect Group is a small group of people who meet regularly to learn more about God, to grow in their personal Christian lives, and to develop supportive friendships with others who have similar desires. Our Connect Groups typically meet biweekly, either at the church or at a host’s home.

 

WHAT HAPPENS AT CONNECT GROUPS?

Most Connect Group meetings last about two hours. A typical meeting will include worship, a teaching and discussion, personal sharing, prayer and a snack or meal. Periodically, most Connect Groups also schedule social events and participate in service projects together.

 

WHY JOIN A CONNECT GROUP?

Attending corporate Sunday services is very important, but by itself it can not supply everything needed for a vibrant and joyful Christian life. Connect Groups are designed to supplement the Sunday services by:

  • Providing a place for you to freely discuss your personal questions about God and Jesus Christ.
  • Introducing you to new Biblical truths through a short teaching and subsequent group discussion.
  • Helping you to develop supportive friendships with a smaller group of people with whom you can share life’s joys and struggles.
  • Providing an opportunity for involvement in outward-focused service projects.

 

WHAT ABOUT CHILDCARE?

Most groups provide childcare at the meeting location. It is best to call ahead and confirm the type of childcare before visiting a group for the first time.

 

HOW DO I CHOOSE A GROUP?

The groups for 2017 are listed in this PDF (CLICK HERE). You might choose a group based on a recommendation from a church friend, a convenient meeting location/day/ time, or your current life stage. And don’t worry; you don’t have to settle on a Connect Group after just one visit. It’s okay to check out several before choosing the right fit for you and your family. Regardless of the group you choose to visit, please call ahead to confirm the next meeting date and location.
