We believe life is better when you don’t try to do it alone, and that is why building authentic relationships as we grow in our walk with Jesus is crucial. To help, we have organized opportunities to help all of us grow deeper in our faith while also growing closer as a church family. Check out how your family can get involved in our ongoing Connect Groups, our quarterly Hangouts and periodic Connect Classes.
Remember, you can jump into a group whenever you are ready!
We know that one of the biggest challenges to joining a group can be the childcare question. What will we do with our kids during the group? To help, Connect is now offering a childcare reimbursement in which the church will reimburse the cost of babysitting during your Connect Group or Connect Class. Get all the details here, then fill out the Childcare Reimbursement Form.
Imagine being in a year-around group where families look out for one another, hold each other accountable, and even serve our community together.
Where do groups meet?
Our groups meet in host homes near Amelia, Batavia Township, Bethel and Eastgate Ohio. As more groups are added, more locations will be added, too.
When do groups meet?
Our groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some choose to meet every week, bi-weekly or monthly. It is really up to your group to decide what works best.
Can I switch groups?
Absolutely. If you are part of a group and you need to make a change for your family and move to a different group, you are free to do so. We want you to be completely comfortable in your group setting, and we realize that schedules and situations change. All of our group leaders understand that their members are free to find the group that best fits them. We only ask that you let us know by reaching out to Brian Morrissey. Brian can also assist by helping you find a group to move into. Feel free to contact us online, too.
What will my group study?
Study topics are decided at the group level so things stay flexible. Some weeks you may not have a study and instead just hang out together or take on a service project.
What about childcare?
Some groups are child friendly, while others are not. We leave it up to our groups to figure out what works best in terms of how they want to handle this important question. Each group lists how they are handling childcare in the group description.
How do I sign up?
By clicking the below button, you will be able to see all the Connect Groups. Signups occur on our “My Connect” community website. If you don’t have an account yet (or you don’t remember your login info) we will walk you through it. Note: everyone who is in a group will need to signup individually through “My Connect.” So if a couple wants to jump into a Group, both people will need to sign up individually.
We know it can sometimes be difficult to get to know others at church when you might only see one another on a Sunday morning, so we want to be very intentional about setting up some time when our entire church family can gather up, eat and just have fun together. We’ll be hosting three regular Hangouts throughout the year. See photos from our Fall Family Hangout, our Spring Family Game Night and our Summer Kickball Hangout.
