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 10:24-25). Connection Groups are the way we establish this kind of biblical community.
Each week, groups of 8-15 people meet in homes in the surrounding communities of Des Moines to offer a life-on-life context to connect and grow. We desire our people to become a God-honoring family, applying the Word of God to their lives, serving each other and the community in which they live, and growing in maturity and number as others are brought into the fold of God (1 Peter 2:9-10).
Keep an eye on our News page and upcoming events to see when we will host the next Foundations series and a New to CGC brunch!
To get the best feel for the beliefs and values of our church we ask that you first attend a Foundations of Cottage Grove series of classes.
Once you have completed Foundations we will connect you with a local group that meets every week on a day that works for you.
