Connect Groups: Our Basic Purpose

Connect groups exist to promote the development of significant Christian relationships centered around the study of God’s Word (see Hebrews 10:24–25; Romans 8:29).

 

Sharing

Each week we will take time to share what is happening in our lives. At first this sharing will include some planned “sharing questions.” After the first few weeks, it will become more informal and personal as our group feels safer and more comfortable.

 

Study

Each week we’ll study a portion of God’s Word that relates to the previous weekend’s sermon. Our goal is to learn how to apply and live out our Christianity in our day-to-day experiences and relationships.

 

Support

Each week we’ll learn how to take care of one another as Christ commanded (see John 15:9–13). This care will take many forms, such as praying, listening, meeting needs, and encouraging and even challenging one another as needed.


Commitment

Joining a connect group requires a commitment to attend each week and to do the homework ahead of time. Obviously, allowances are made for sickness, vacation, work conflicts, and other special events—but not much more! This commitment is the key to a healthy group.

Most weeks, the homework will require from twenty to thirty minutes to adequately prepare for the group study and discussion.


Childcare

Group members are responsible to arrange childcare for their children. Nursing newborns are welcome, provided they are not a distraction to the group.


Socials & Service Projects

We will plan at least one social event as a group each session. We will make it a priority to attend as this helps us grow in relationship, making our group stronger. We will also, as a group, be involved in reaching out and helping others in our church and community.
