1. What happens at a Connect Group meeting?
A Connect Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Connect Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in Connect Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer. All Connect Group meetings will begin with Scripture and prayer.
2. How often does a Connect Group meet?
Our Connect Groups meet for three semesters a year-winter/spring, summer, and fall. During the semester, Small Groups will meet at least twice a month but many will meet more frequently. Connect Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
3. Where do Connect Groups meet?
Connect Groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The Host of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Connect Groups happen throughout the City of Savannah and the Coastal Empire areas.
4. How long does a typical Connect Group stay together?
Most Connect Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
5. Is there childcare available?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a Connect Group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
6. What if I don’t like the first Connect Group I try?
The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the hosts and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in Connect Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone-including you!
