AMES CONNECTION GROUPS
We believe community, accountability and application of God’s word occurs in connection groups. Our connection groups are regionally based and meet throughout the week in students’ or leaders’ homes. For more information on how to join a group contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RETREATS & EVENTS
Each semester, there are retreats and special events outside of our weekly gatherings and small group meetings. These events are sometimes gender specific and focus on spiritual growth and relationship building with other students.
SUMMER SERVICE TRIPS
Summer service trips are an amazing opportunity for students to serve in a different context, build authentic community with others, and see God’s heart for different cultures and nations.
OUR CORE VALUES
Every week we celebrate the one, true God. Just as Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 14:25, we want our church to be a place where visitors look around and say, “God is really among you.” Our weekly gatherings of celebration have three purposes:
- To honor Christ
- To encourage and strengthen the faith of believers
- To draw unbelievers to God
We believe it is vital for Christ-followers to grow alongside one another in small group settings where they can encourage, challenge, serve and pray for one another. We do this through Connection Groups. The values of the connection groups are:
- God-Honoring Family
- Application of the Word
- Service within the group and outside of the group
- Growth as disciples make disciples
connection groups generally meet weekly, and are available for different ages, locations and walks of life.
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.”
-1 Corinthians 12:12 (NIV)
God has showed His generosity to us in countless ways. We believe the natural response of a Christ-follower is to live a life of generosity out of gratitude to God. Believers contribute by giving their:
- Financial resources
We welcome all to know Christ without cost and obligation, and we encourage believers to reflect the image of God by giving generously to His kingdom.
