2018 Winter/Spring Semester

CONNECT Groups

Director: Pastor Scott VanBibber
(209) 489-3977
 
 
 

What is a CONNECT Group??

A group of 8-15 people who gather weekly or bi/weekly, either in a home, apartment, mobile home, or at the Connecting Point campus. We connect with God. We connect with others who are on a journey with Jesus. We connect with family, friends, and neighbors who make up our “extended family”. We connect to care, support, and help each other through life. 
 

What How long will this semester last?

We will begin February 4 and meet through May 6. There will be a one week break April 1-7 (Easter Break). Be sure to check out what each group will be studying, the day they will meeting (weekly, biweekly), the time they will meet, and where they will meet (church or hosted in a home).
