Connect Groups

Small Groups that Meet Regularly

At Farm Loop Christian Center, we want to see our people connecting with God and connecting with one another. This is the focus of our connect groups. Some of these groups meet weekly, some meet monthly. Some are focused on friendship and some are focused on studying scripture. Each of these different connect groups strives to display one or more of the following values:

  • Providing Godly Relationships
  • Fostering the Use of Talents and Spiritual Gifts for God’s Kingdom

  • Growing Towards Spiritual Maturity
  • Developing Leaders

We want these groups to be a place of belonging, friendship, and spiritual growth. Whatever stage of life you are in, we have a group for you. If you are looking for a place to connect at church, we would love to have you in one of our connect groups!

Meet Your Connect Groups Pastor

I am excited to have you looking into Connect Groups at FLCC! I have been in a connect group for several years now. This group is the people I spend time with, who encourage me and help me when I need it. My connect group has been a place of encouragement and strength for me. As I oversee this ministry, my prayer is that others would experience the same strength I have through their own connect groups. That each group would foster close relationships and service to one another.
