Why Connection Groups?
Why? Why not?
Relationships have many degrees and stages. Paul uses the illustration of a body in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 to describe relationships in the church. Every part is necessary. Each part needs and is needed by the others. This deep level of symbiosis and synergy does not happen by accident or by simply being in the same room on occasion. Connection Groups are a step towards what Paul is talking about.
“Groups at Corner have helped me to feel like I’m really part of the Corner Church community. From the SOAP Bible study when I first joined, to the winter activities last year, and hiking, book clubs, and take it deeper questions this year, I love that we can meet up for just about anything! Being part of groups has helped me make connections and find new friends.” ~Jenny W.
What is a Connection Group?
Intentional / Relational / Prayerful
It is a group that deliberately deepens relationships and prays for each other.
How does COVID-19 impact Connection Groups?
Impact but not impossible
Our goal has never been to have Connection Groups that are large gatherings of people. It is difficult to accomplish deeper relationships in larger groups. During this season, having small groups, groups that utilize Zoom, groups that meet outside or in larger spaces, and groups that use masks is important. While connection may be different in 2021, it is not impossible and will always be essential.

Spring 2021 Connection Group Details:
Spring is coming!
Elements of a Successful Connection Group:
Aiming towards success
Shared leadership. Having co-leaders diversifies responsibility.
Clear communication. Having all the details communicated from the beginning helps people know what they are getting involved in and helps people stay involved for the duration.
Cross community. Having Corner Church people from each community involved is ideal. We are better together.
Inclusion. Having people involved who do not attend Corner Church is the best! New connection and relationship is the heart of God.
Frequent invitation. Reminding people who are involved about what is happening with emails and text messages helps.
Connect with people that may be interested in co-leading.
Connect with a Corner Church pastor if you would like help or insight.
Organize all your Connection Group details.
Submit all of your Connection Group details at cornerchurch.tv/groups before the end of the day on Sunday, February 7.
