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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other things that happen in life that create a sense of grief. You might experience a job loss, divorce, estrangement from a child or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in our group. Each week we will watch a video featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are real-life case studies. During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grief process. This class comes with UPDATED materials – you are welcome to join us again.

Through testimony and Scripture, Justine will help you learn how to receive His forgiveness.

For women who are struggling with or are involved in sexual sin/pornography, the Women’s Ministry has formed this group with Kimberly Williams facilitating the reading and discussion of Shannon Ethridge’s book “Every Woman’s Battle”. This book challenges women to live sexually and emotionally pure lives and identifies stumbling blocks that keep women from this goal. While a man’s battle begins with what he takes in through his eyes, a woman’s battle begins with her heart and her thoughts. This group is a safe place to discover God’s plan for sexual and emotional fulfillment.

This group provides opportunities for women to connect to one another. That through faith in Christ, women, as they are drawn together in love may have the power to understand how deep the love of Christ is. As women, our prayer is that we come to know His immeasurable love for us and that our hearts will be touched and changed. When women’s lives are touched and changed it affects other lives including husbands, children, neighbors, and friends. We desire to encourage women in all walks and season of life, from every nation, tribe, and tongue to form bonds with each other through fellowship, prayers and service. The Women’s Ministry partners with several other ministries here at The Blended Church. Make sure to join us the 3rd Saturday of every month.
