CONNECTGroups 2022.png

We connect with each other in CONNECTGroups.

True growth is not just about Sunday mornings. We believe that real growth happens when you are involved in community, not just sitting in a worship service.

 

To grow spiritually, you need to be connected relationally. A great way to do this is through a Church On The Trail CONNECTGroup.They are your key to developing healthy relationships with those who share your interests, or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

CONNECTGroups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with God.

 

CONNECTGroups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout our area. These groups change and begin at different times during the year, so you have the opportunity to explore different groups, or join groups at any time.

You'll never fully experience Church On The Trail until you lock arms and connect with others in the Body of Christ!

Scroll down to explore the current CONNECTGroups and sign up for one (or more!) at the bottom of the page.
