Connection Groups

God created all of us with an inherent need for community. It is in the context of meaningful relationships with other believers that we grow as disciples of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10:23-25). Connection Groups are the way we establish this kind of biblical community.


2023 Connection Group Fair

Searching for a new connection group to join this year? Join us on Sunday, August 27, after both the 9:00a and 10:45a services for the Connection Group Fair!

Meet & Connect Every Week

Each week smaller groups of people meet in homes in the surrounding communities of Des Moines. These Connection Groups seek to bring together people in various stages of life, from various demographics, with different backgrounds and stories in order to encourage, support and teach one another the truth about who God is and what that means for us personally.

Our hope is that each Connection Group is a space for the people in it to:

  1. Know God and know one another.
  2. Care for, share with, and invite neighbors.
  3. Send out leaders to start more life giving communities.
