Genuine fellowship isn't practical in a crowd of several hundred or more. It's easy to get lost in the crowd, to feel lonely even though you may be surrounded by several people. Realistically, you can only develop close intimate relationships, in small groups.
We believe that our connection groups are just as important as our corporate time. Growing in Christ is more than intellectually learning facts from the Bible; it is about becoming more like Christ in every aspect of our lives. This type of growth, requires more than a bible study, it requires experience. The connection groups will bring people from similar backgrounds and common interests together to form lifelong friendships. Meeting new people can be extremely intimidating. Smaller groups are easier to get involved with and offer those first steps to go beyond Sunday mornings.
Our connection groups emphasize building essential, meaningful, true, long lasting relationships that will sustain us through the week. We encourage everyone to become a part of a connection group!
We believe that prayer is the engine that drives the church. We, as Intercessors, pray for the needs of the Church, Staff, Pastors, Elders, Volunteers, Missions, the Sick, Israel, our Government, Youth, our City and much more. This is a time we focus on the things that concern the heart of God.

Enjoy fellowship and much needed "Mom-time". Other people don't truly understand how tough it is to be a single mom - day after day after day. Sometimes you want to give up, and that is a normal reaction because you are doing the job of two people. You should be tired. The thing is, you deeply desire to do what's best for your kids, but you worry that you can't. Sometimes it's all you can do to survive from one day to the next. So what can you do? This single mom's group is designed to address these concerns through a study called "Single & Parenting" which will help you discover how to deal with your deep-down worries and your day-to-day struggles.
If you are interested in meeting with Afra and other single moms to learn and discuss some amazing strategies and hope-filled insights, contact Afra via email at email@example.com.
