God never intended for our spiritual journeys to be solo pursuits. He created us for community, and in Christ, we belong together. Here at St. Peter’s, we believe that it is vitally important that as we grow larger, we must grow smaller at the same time. We are able to accomplish this through our Connect Care Groups.
One of the most important things we do here at St. Peter’s is help people build relationships for life. Our Connect Care Groups provide a great way to connect to a smaller group of people; to find healthy friendships, support, encouragement and fellowship beyond Sunday morning.
Our Connect Care Groups provide increased opportunities for all of us to develop these relational connections.
We encourage you to look through our various groups. Find one that you think fits your interests or that meets a particular need in this season of your life. And then TRY IT!
There are some wonderful connections to be made in this church – relationships that will help you grow personally and that will help us grow into the connected body of believers that God desires us to be.
Our Motive – To promote healthy relationships that inspire everyday people to thrive daily in Christ, win souls and make disciples.
Our Method – Trained leaders develop groups based on the interest, talents or needs of its members.
Leaders receive ongoing training, support, and encouragement through a relational leadership structure. Groups meet once monthly in various locations throughout the city or on the SPWOC campus.
Our Means – You!!!! We believe God has called each of you to have a part in influencing others toward Christ either as a Connect Care Group Leader or as a Connect Care Group Member.
We believe there are divine connections, Holy Spirit inspired ideas and powerful ministry opportunities within each of you that can change our entire community.
Find your place to connect.
