Connect to god

When you cross the line of faith, Jesus will radically change your life. Your old self is put off/discarded and with the power of the Holy Spirit we are to strive to live as a new creation (Ephesians 4:22, 2 Corinthians 5:17).  This life-change is a daily process of learning to become more like Jesus. In order to become more like Him and to live in the power of the Holy Spirit, we must seek Him with all our heart, and connect with Him daily.

Welcoming Ministry - from the time you enter the parking lot to walking through our doors, to meeting one of our friendly volunteer greeters, to receiving your special gift, you will feel the love of Jesus. Connection Point is known for its friendliness and hospitality, and we strive to help you feel connected right away!

Welcome Luncheon - on the third Sunday of each month we host a luncheon for anyone new to Connection Point.

Of course, you're given the opportunity to ask questions too!


Discipleship Path - we will start you on a journey that will take you from understanding the basics of your connection to the Church and your relationship with God (if you are a new believer in Christ) to growing in your relationship with Him to participating in Life Groups where you are ministering to each other in a small community of believers.
