Why Connect Groups?

We believe in a relational model of discipleship. Jesus and the Early Church demonstrate throughout scripture the power of gathering together in small groups to build authentic relationships.God created us for togetherness. To become a fully devoted follower of Jesus, we must connect small—and connect groups are the primary way we do that at Sanctus Church.

What are Connect Groups?Connect groups are about doing life and faith together. They are a place where someone notices your spiritual growth and cares when tough things happen.
