“Connect Groups…the key to unlocking meaningful relationships”

Connect Group (CG) Logo-final-as png-450x364

New Faith’s ‘Connect Groups’ are small groups with a goal of fostering deeper Christian-based relationships among our church members and guests.  

The ‘Connect Groups’ meet both in members’ homes– as well as various places near our church–to discuss and study various topics together.  The groups meet for six weeks in the fall and in the spring.  Childcare is provided.

The intimacy of these small groups allows us to get to know one another better as well as find ways we can minister and pray more deeply for those in our group as we serve God.  Please find a group and begin a closer walk with God. Let’s CONNECT!

SCHEDULE:

•5:45PM Drop off children (nursery provided from 5:45PM-7:15PM)
•6:00PM-7:00PM  ‘Connect Groups’ meet in members’ homes
•7:15PM  Pick up children from church nursery

Group A

Meeting 1st and 3rd Sundays

Biblical Bandages’

The theme of this group is ‘Biblical answers to everyday problems we face in life.’  There is no formal curriculum used for studies.  Instead, group members anonymously submit questions about burdensome plights in life they have wondered about how to deal with from a Christian perspective  (such as, “My boss asks me to do things I don’t agree with as a believer.  Should I just quit?”).  This group seeks to connect with and get to know one another as we discuss these questions in our sessions.  It will be hosted by Darrell Schultz at his (and Teri’s) house at 210 Augusta Ct. in Annetta.

‘Women Of Wisdom’

‘Women Of Wisdom’

This is our only group limited to women only.  We seek a diversity of women and welcome young and senior alike!    There will be no set curriculum to follow in this special group.  Instead, discussions in this ‘Connect Group’ will be based on questions submitted by the group members regarding how today’s women need to seek to pattern their lives according to the blueprints set forth by The Bible.  It will be hosted by Teri Schultz, our Women’s Ministry leader, but will be held at Jane Beatty’s home.

‘Youth Issues’ Connect Group

This study will address prominent cultural issues youth face in today’s world, while giving a Biblical perspective on the matter.  The content will address matters such as:  Jesus as Lord; Family; Marriage; Divorce; Loneliness; Depression; Anxiety and stress; Suicide; Sexual Misbehavior; Social Media; Friendship; and Materialism.  The leader of the group will be Sam Kirkland, our Family Minister.  It will meet at Karen Goodpaster’s house (with the Carter’s as a backup). 

Apologetics’

Every Christian needs to know how to have a systematic defense of the faith based on facts.  This class will teach you how to know what you believe as a Christian, why you should believe it, and how to stand behind it.  Be set free from the fear that controls one’s witness for Christ!  Discover what ‘witnessing’ really is, and what it isn’t.  The group sessions will be hosted by Tommy Grider, a powerful prayer warrior and street minister.  As the group members get to know one another and the precepts of their faith better, you can be assured Tommy’s prayers will be bathing you! 

Group ‘B’

‘Marriage’

This group is taught by the dynamic duo of Chuck and Cheryl Cox, whose lifelong commitment to one another began at age fifteen and continues to this day.  These two behind-the-scenes leaders of New Faith Baptist Church will host the group studies at their South Annetta home.  Chuck jokingly says he “sure can teach what NOT to do in a marriage!”  If you want to be nurtured by two wonderful, Christian members, don’t miss your chance to be in this group gathering!

‘Earth’s Ultimate Ride’

‘Earth’s Ultimate Ride’

For those who have a unique passion for life, you may want to join in on James Horton’s ‘Connect Group’ for BIKERS!  This particular group will meet at various places all over the Metroplex.  If you have a bike of any kind, you’re invited to take part in this unique, bi-weekly gathering.  (Those two-wheeled rides in The Bible were pretty important:  see Acts 8:26-40 and 2 Kings 2:11!)  James Horton looks forward to you joining up with the ‘Connect Group’ and inviting buddies, as well!
