Bring your Faith to Life with Connect Groups
Faith→Life: Learn from Christ’s Teachings
SPRING CONNECT GROUP INFO COMING SOON
Our mission is to create committed Christ-followers for the transformation of the world. To do this we can't grow on our own. John Wesley believed it is through participation in small groups that we become Christ-followers. We invite you to test this by participating in at least one of these outstanding opportunities.
- CLASSES -

Discussion varies on books, videos, and other sources to investigate and challenge theological boundaries. The group enjoys occasional picnics and potlucks. All are welcome.
Contemporary Issues – After the 9 AM worship service Room 146
Facilitator: Joel Charlson
Discussion is centered on current issues, news reports, and media viewpoints that shape public opinions. A United Methodist faith perspective will inform each unique session. Visitors and seekers are especially welcome.
- Connect Groups -
These groups will meet for either six weeks as a short term group, or ongoing weekly. The time and focus of the group will be centered around a shared issue or activity. The duration of the gathering is one hour. The core of the time together is developing relationship with the Holy and with each other. A host will hold the space meeting on site at church, in coffee houses or in homes.
