Get to know us

We're glad you're checking out Connexion, a faith community in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. We are Bible based, audio/visually centered, relaxed, and relevant. Connexion prides itself in being fun and upbeat; asking you to come as you are! You don't have to dress up! You don't have to pretend your life is perfectly in order! You won't be bored - but encouraged, challenged and taught how to connect with God.  

We gather for worship on Sundays. Exciting and innovative programming for children. For adults we strive to have a gathering that is engaging and thought-provoking.

There are many things you can learn here about our faith community. Most of all, we just want you to know that you are welcome to come worship with us any time. We're looking forward to getting to know you for who you are.  So sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and a bag of popcorn, and stay a while. 

OUr start

Connexion began as God placed a desire within the hearts of eleven individuals who were primarily members of an established church within our community. This desire envisioned the formation of a church that was willing to do whatever it took to reach the culture around it for Christ, and to fully glorify him in all that it did. Connexion was not formally sponsored by any existing church or group. By faith, these individuals and families began meeting in April, 2007, and spent six months discovering the identity that God wanted Connexion to have. God has a hundred other churches in Jefferson County that are established in tradition. We believe God wanted Connexion to be a different kind of church. A church that cares about others more than traditions. Connexion officially began with worship on Sunday, October 7, 2007.
