Connect Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us for connection with others and through those connections, we experience the full life He intends for us. We believe that as we can get real with people in safe environments, God uses those relationships to bring freedom in our life. (James 5:16) Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Connect Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
Our Connect Groups follow a semester schedule: Two twelve week semesters in spring & fall, as well as 1 shorter semester in summer. Groups meet weekly during those times.
We are currently in our Fall Connect Semester, which runs from September 8 to December 7!

Yet the Woman at the Well quenched her thirst for the truth, while Rahab and the Sinful Woman left their sordid histories behind. Let ten Bad Girls show you how God can transform your future.
