What are Connections Groups?
Connections Groups are small groups of people coming together to fellowship, forge new relationships, and grow spiritually. They meet in homes, here at the GCFC campus, and other locations throughout the metro.
The Goal of Connections Groups.
Christian friendships, where two walk together, create a safety net, so if one falls the other is there to help. This is not just accountability, but being real with people just like you! Connections is the place for people to be empowered for ministry through strong, healthy relationships.
How will I benefit from joining a Connections Group?
You will begin to feel like a part of God’s family as you get to know and learn to love other believers. You will develop a better understanding of the Bible and how its practical truth can be applied in your life. You will discover the power of group prayer and the strength that comes from sharing your concerns with people who care. You will find the encouragement that each of us need to live in a way that blesses our families and honors God.
What Connections Groups are available?
All of our Connections Groups fall in to one of four distinct categories; Sunday School Discovery Classes, Study Connections, Special Interest Connections, Outreach/Service Connections. Check out the details on all of our available groups and see which one fits you the best.
