Connect Groups

There are many reasons to join a Connect Group


  • Meeting new people that care and want to become your friend
  • Learning about God through stimulating conversations and studies
  • Finding a deeper connection with people than what can be found in a larger group
  • Just having fun and making new friends




Groups only meet the first 3 weeks of the month. The only exception is that the groups do not meet on holiday weeks. 


In 2017, we are going to go through the Bible in chronological order, paying special attention to how the story points to Jesus. 


In September, Connexion will be embarking on a new bible study titled "Stop Asking Jesus into your Life." Books are $5 each, and will be for sale during the month of August at Connexion. If you are unable to purchase a book, and need financial assistance please contact Matt Griswold and one will be provided for you.
