Connect Groups

God created us to live in community

We believe life change happens in the context of relationships. Connect Groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. God created us to live in community with others, and it is only then that we can . experience the full life He intends for us.

These are the following Connect Groups we have to offer. Please find a group that suits you and feel free to contact the group leader. Get connected today!

Monday Adult Connect Group


The Monday night connect group is a great example of how going deeper into scripture is so rewarding. Our mission statement is planting God’s word firmly in our hearts and minds so it becomes easier for us to apply it into our lives. The Bible contains life-changing potential. This potential is activated when you plant God’s word in your heart. In John 6:63 Jesus declared ” It is the Spirit who gives life, The flesh profits nothing. The words I speak to you are Spirit, and they are life”

On Monday nights we study directly from the Bible and currently, we are studying Matthew and will continue on through all 4 gospels with Mark, Luke, and John coming next. We have a great group that interacts in this study through reading, discussing, and breaking down verses so we all understand the lessons taught thru the Bible. You can join in our conversations or just sit back and glean from all the incredible insight into life and living out God’s will. All Men and Women are invited to join us. We always meet on Zoom with a few of us meeting in person.

At Celebrate Recovery-Better Together we are believers, for both men and women, who know the healing power of Jesus Christ. We are committed to serve the Lord and show God’s freedom which comes from working through this 12-step program that is based upon the Beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-12. Celebrate Recovery is not just for people who are addicts but we welcome anyone who has experienced or is experiencing hurts, hang-ups, or habits in their lives.

A hurt which can be a scar or a negative impact left from events in our lives

Hang-ups can be any negative ideas, thought, or conceptions of ourselves or of others

And a bad habit can be anything that comes between you and your walk with God.

So come join us for Celebrate Recovery on zoom or at The City Church in The Outback, every Tuesday evening beginning at 5:30 for fellowship, and the meeting begins promptly at 6 pm. We do life together, because we are Better Together!
