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.

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.
