Connection Groups are small groups consisting of 4-12 people in which we foster a deeper connection to Jesus and with one another. In addition to being groups of strong, God-centered relationships, these groups typically meet weekly in friends’ homes for Bible study, prayer, mutual encouragement, and support.
If you are interested in hosting, leading or joining our other connection groups, contact Pastor Chip at GCCMayville@gmail.com or call Gateway during business hours. Grow deeper with us!
*New* Bible Study Starting Wednesday Jan 18 at 6:30pm
Jump in to our on going Bible Study on “I am a Church Member” by Thom Ranier!
Want to know more before you stop in? Check this out.
Based on an idea originally taken from this blog, I Am a Church Member discusses the attitudes and responsibilities of church members. Rainer addresses in detail what congregations should really be focusing on — praying for church leaders, being a functioning member, treasuring church membership, and more.
Six chapters with these titles include study questions to guide the discussion:
- I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
- I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
- I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
- I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
- I Will Be a Functioning Member
- I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift
