Connections Church wants to equip you with the tools you need to grow closer to God. We encourage you to surround yourself with others in a community to spur one another on.


What is a LIFEgroup?

A LIFEgroup consists of 10-15 adults who meet together weekly in a house of someone from Connections Church or online via Zoom/ Google Meet. We believe that LIFEgroups are designed for you - whether you are seeking God for the first time or even if you've been a Christian for a long time!


What happens at a typical LIFEgroup Gathering?

Each home and online group offers a relaxed atmosphere where you can be yourself, laugh and meet new friends.

Half the night is spent together as a group eating snacks, hanging out together and enjoying fun activities. 

The other half of the night is working together to apply the previous Sunday's message to our lives and praying for each other.


How do I get involved in a LIFEgroup?

Look over the groups listed below to find a time and location that works for you. 

We strongly encourage you to call the LIFEgroup contact before you attend.

Is there Childcare available?

Yes. Half of our LIFEgroups offer childcare onsite with no cost to you! 

We see LIFEgroups as such a priority at Connections that we don’t want there to be any hindrances-including childcare costs.
