CONNECT GROUPS

Connecting every generation to one another.

Welcome into Life Together.

Life happens in community, and for First Baptist Hendersonville, that happens in Connect Groups. Whatever stage of life you’re in, there’s a Connect Group for you.

With three different times on Sunday mornings, and other groups that meet during the week, we can help you find the best fit.

 

We’re glad you’re here.

“Thanks for expressing interest in Adult Connect Groups at First Baptist. We believe Connect Groups are the primary way we live out our mission as a church in daily life.  It’s the place where the church becomes personal, and we move from being a face in the crowd to a member of a family.  It’s where we can gather around God’s Word to help each other apply it to our specific season of life.  It’s where the “one another’s” that we see commanded in Scripture get practiced in the context of relationship.

 

Connect Groups gather for study and fellowship weekly but minister 24/7, and there’s a Connect Group that’s ready to welcome you into the family.  More than that, there’s a group that needs you and the gifts and story you bring.

 

The Adult Ministry Team would love to help you find a group personally.  Feel free to call, email, or catch one of us in the hallway to talk about a group for you or your family. We’d love to help you connect at First Baptist!”
