Resuming Small Connexion Groups! 

 Get connected today! Join a Connexion Group!

Study after study shows that small groups become the anchor for many people in the life of the church. While worship is always central, small groups provide amazing opportunities for spiritual growth and connection. During our visioning process, it was clearly obvious that there was a desire for a more developed small group ministry for our church

.

“Connexion Groups” were started in the fall of 2016. Connexion Groups are not short-term studies, they are on-going small groups of 8-12 people who meet either weekly or monthly for fellowship, accountability, and spiritual growth. Our Connexion Groups are facilitated by members of the church and each group has a focus. It’s important to know that Connexion Groups do not replace Sunday School classes or other groups like United Methodist Men or Women.

 

A description of all our active Connexion Groups can be found here. We encourage you to prayerfully consider joining one of these groups. Your life will be enhanced by doing so! If you have an idea for another new Connexion Group or if you feel led to facilitate a group, please contact Barb Combs, Director of Programs.   

Some of our small Connexion Groups are starting back up! We’ve had a break and it was at times difficult being separated from seeing each other face-to-face. Connexion groups are a great way to get connected again. All of our groups are re-forming so now is your chance to join one! Look over the list and choose the one that interests you the most.

Each of these Connexion Groups will meet in either the Fellowship Hall or the Meditation Garden, weather permitting, and on ZOOM. All of these groups are open to any person of our church family community, any age or gender, although you men might feel out of place at LEO….or maybe not! Small groups are a great way to get to know others from church and to help you grow in your journey with God and help our church’s life to grow.

Please text, call, or email me with all your questions about these groups. I’ve been missing talking with you!! Blessings, Barb
