connection groups

The mandate of Jesus was to make disciples and teach them to do the same. Our process for doing this is through Connection groups. It's been said, "that church doesn't happen in rows of pews, it happens in circles." These groups meet each week on and off campus in various places, including people's homes. Connection groups offer an opportunity for social connection and fellowship, for interaction with the Bible, for group discussion and sharing, for learning activities, for prayer, for worship, and for Bible application and serving. We encourage everyone to attend the Sunday morning worship gathering, join a Fifth Avenue Connection group, and serve in a ministry.
