O’Fallon Campus Spring 2018 Connection Groups

(More groups to come)

The Truth Project

Leaders: Mark & Denyse Anderson
Area: O’Fallon
Type: Life group for married couples (10+ yrs)
Day/Time: Tuesday 7:00PM
Childcare: Yes

Today’s believers live very similarly to non-believers. A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy and we begin to wonder what life’s ultimate purpose really is. We are, in short, losing our bearings as a people and a nation.

Season of Motherhood

Leader: Jaime Ranz
Area: O’Fallon
Type: Moms
Day/Time: Wednesday 6:30PM
Childcare: Yes

Being a mom usually means being busy. Really busy. Whether you’re zipping from your children’s piano lessons to their next ballgame or nursing a baby while comforting a toddler, life is brimming with activities. Yet one encounter can help shape every moment: time in the Word with Jesus. In Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood, you’ll learn how to nourish your own heart, mind, and soul with the wisdom you need to become the mother you long to be.

Starting Point

Leader: Lance Johnson
Area: O’Fallon
Type: Unbelievers, new Christians, returning Christians
Day/Time: Tuesday 6:30PM
Childcare: No

Everything has a beginning. Every person, every idea, every journey starts somewhere. Whether it’s one small step in a new direction or a major event, from that point forward nothing is ever the same.
It’s not always comfortable. It’s not always easy. But it’s a start. If you’re a new believer or someone with questions about Christianity this group will provide the foundation for the Christian faith.
