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 the week of March 3rd and meet through the week of  May 19th. Be sure to check out what each group will be studying, the day they will be meeting (weekly, biweekly), the time they will meet, and where they will meet (church or hosted in a home).

 

 
 

Title: Letters to the Church

All Adults
 
Leader: Pastor Greg 
Day/Time: Thursday from 6:30 pm-8 pm
Location: TBA
 
Description:Do you want more from your church experience?                                                                  Does the pure gospel put you in a place of awe?                                                               Are you ready to rethink church as you know it?

*Come and join us as we are reminded that we are a part of something much bigger than just us, something sacred.
*Stories of ordinary people God is using to change the world.
*Author Francis Chan says, “We’ve strayed so far from what God calls Church. We all know it. We know that what we’re experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church. We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It’s time for that to change.”

*When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride—even more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be

 

Title: The Financial Peace

All Adults
 
Leader & Hosts:Chris Alonzo
Day/Time: Sunday from 4-5:30 pm
Location: Vista Room
 
Description:

If you think about, money touches every nook and  cranny of our lives. We measure our success and failures by it. We use it to fill our gas tanks, pay for groceries, and keep the lights on. And just when we feel like we have the hang of it…something breaks, someone gets sick, or the bank calls asking for their money back.  Whether you’ve got money tied up in credit cards,    student loans, a car  payment, or even those unwanted medical bills, it all adds up and fast.

Most of us have been there. Have you? But here’s  the thing: You can’t stay there.

Dave Ramsey has been there. But the best part is that he uses his story to       impact other stories with the hope and help of Financial Peace University.

Topic: Sunday Message Discussion & Reflection

All Adults

Day/Time:Thursday from 7:00-8:30 pm
Location: The Gebhart Home in Keyes
 
Description: Our group will be a sermon-based  with discussion & questions focused around Sunday’s message. This is how a crowd  becomes a community and how we grow in relationship with God and each other.  Our hope is that these discussions will help us   apply the message to real life 24/7.
