FALL 2017 SEMESTER

In times of need and times of fun, ChristLife ConnectGroups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout the city. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that ChristLife has to offer until you connect in a small group!

 

“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.”-Acts 5:42

 

Small groups were vital to the church’s growth then, and they are just as vital now.
