We’re Killing the Awkward Part of GroupLink

You’ve heard us say it: you and I need community. And the primary way we join community at Connexus is by getting into small group.

The way you get into a small group is by participating in GroupLink. Until now, GroupLink has been a two hour event where you show up and hopefully find a group you can be part of.

But that can be hard. You’re only available one night a week and the people who are available that night don’t seem like they’re the right fit for you. Or you try to join a group only to discover it’s already full. All of which, we’ve learned, can be awkward.

So guess what?

We’re killing the awkward part of GroupLink.

GroupLink is a brand new event that should make getting into a group easier than EVER for you. And we REALLY want you to get into a group.

Here are the details for the new GroupLInk:

So that’s the new format.

One more thing: why would you doing this again?

You and I need the same thing.  It might look different, feel different, sound different.  But at it’s root, it’s the same. You and I need meaningful, healthy relationships.

Why?  We weren’t wired to do life alone.  Whatever you’re going through, celebrating, struggling with – you weren’t meant to do it alone.

Not only that, but in the context of relationships, we can grow spiritually.

Your faith is so much more than just where you sit on Sundays.
