Emmanuel Baptist Church - 2017 Fall Connection Groups

2017 Fall Connection Groups

Connection Groups are an amazing way to experience two things: Discipleship, and Community. This is an opportunity to build your relationship with God, while also building your relationships with others.
Our desire is to see EVERY PERSON at Emmanuel committed to one SMALL GROUP or BIBLE STUDY where they can be encouraged to:
  • Grow in their knowledge and obedience of God's word;
  • Grow in spiritual maturity and bearing the fruit and Christ likeness;
  • Be involved in corporate prayer for the body of Christ;
  • Experience Biblical accountability;
  • Being known and knowing others within the body of Christ;
  • Be caring for the needs of the body and having their own needs met;
  • Use their spiritual gifts; and be involved with outreach and multiplication.
Here a list of different ways to get involved!
