life change happens when we connect.

if you need help finding a group contact our connections team with any questions

A Connect Group is a small group of people within the church who meet regularly to establish a sense of community and to help live out the reality of the Christian life on a day-to-day basis. The scripture, Church history, and our own experience have taught us that small groups are the most effective model for a dynamic church body, which consistently administers the love and grace of God. This interpersonal relationship model was the basis for vibrant Christian life and growth in the New Testament Church (see Acts 2:42-47). For this reason, Connect Groups will be the primary relational cell for connection to the church body here at Hope Anthem Church.
