Connection Groups

Sermon Based Connection Groups for Lent

Connection Groups during Lent are Sermon based.  This means we all hear the sermon and reflect on it with God.  We then meet with our group to listen to each other and to discuss further.  This allows God to speak to us again individually and together. We are using 4 standard questions each week and the preaching Pastor will always have two or more additional questions.

The four standard questions are:
  • What was new to you in this week’s text?
  • What questions do you have after reading the text?
  • What might God want you to know?
  • What might God want you to do?
▷ Pastor Marco's Bonus question this week (03/15/20) on the text Hebrews 10:19-25.
  • Where is God calling you to draw closer?
  • Where can you hold on to hope today?

God says “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you unsearchable things you do not know.”  - Jeremiah 33:3

▷ Pastor Marco's Bonus question this week (03/22/20) on the text Romans 12:1-13.
  • What (warm/cold) images come to mind when you think of worshiping God?
  • What does your life look like when you see yourself as a living offering to God?
  • What mental and emotional images of God may need to be transformed for you to (begin/continue) to worship authentically?
▷ Pastor Marco's Bonus question this week (03/29/20) on the text Galatians 2:11-21.
  • Where do you need to hear Jesus' say "It is finished!" Where can you grow in the trust that Christ's death has ALREADY done its powerful work in you?
  • Where in your life do you want to keep surrendering and growing to live according to the gospel of Jesus?
Want to join a Connection Group?
Joining an FCC Connection Group is one of the best ways to cultivate personal faith in Jesus while developing meaningful connections in our church community.

Our FCC Connection Groups are smaller gatherings averaging about eight to twelve people for reflection on the Bible, discussion on the Christian Faith, and community and connection with others. Some groups revolve around a particular life stage, gender, or age group, while others are eclectic and revolve around the time and place of gathering. Most groups meet weekly for several weeks at a time in the fall, winter, and spring. If you would like to grow in your faith while experiencing community with others, we recommend that you consider joining a Connection Group.
