What are Connect Groups?
Connect Groups are the small group ministry at 360, and they are the best way to get connected into our community. Our Connect Groups:
- Are focused around shared passions and interests. It's easy to build realtionships with people that share your interests. Our groups are designed to bring people together in a way that allows them to grow in an accomodating environment.
- Meet every other week. We respect your schedule. We know that life gets busy, and we want you to have time for the relationships that matter.
- Are designed for closer community. Our weekend message provide the basis for our Connect Groups, enabling them to continue the conversation in a way that leads to long-term life change.
