connect groups

Beginning in February


Are you looking for a way to deepen your faith and connect with others? Joining a Connect Group an opportunity to grow in faith in a small group setting. 


Beginning the week of February 11, groups meet for seven weeks for prayer, encouragement, friendship, and to study 24 Hours that Changed the World


Meeting dates, times, and locations vary. See a list of groups below. To participate in a group, please contact Anne Havrilla


24 HOURS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD: This DVD study provides a deeper understanding of Jesus’ suffering and death using the Bible, archaeology, geography and history. Visit the holy sites from the Mount of Olives to Calvary and ask at each step along the way:

  • What is the meaning of Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection?
  • How do I find myself in the story?
  • What is it that I might see and understand differently by being in this place? 

The study is designed to help you experience and understand the significance of Jesus’ love for you in his death on the cross in a way you never have before.
