Why Connection Groups?
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 each other and is needed by each other. This deep level of symbiosis and synergy does not happen by accident or by simply being in the same room on occasion. Connection Groups help relationships happen.
What is a Connection Group?
A group that deliberately deepens relationships and prays for each other.

How does COVID-19 impact Connection Groups?
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 utilize masks is important. While connection may be different in 2020, it is not impossible and will always be essential.
Fall Connection Group Details:
Connection Group details need to be submitted on the Corner Church website by Wednesday, September 23. Please create a plan for scheduling your gatherings (when, where, what, how) and avoid TBD. Clearly communicating details helps groups succeed in the long run.
Connection Group Registration will open on Sunday, September 27.
Plan on starting your group within the first two weeks of October.
This season of Connection Groups lasts for about 10 weeks (ending right after Thanksgiving).
Elements of a Successful Connection Group:
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 throughout the duration.
Cross community. Having Corner Church people from each community involved is ideal. We are better together.
Not just for insiders. Having people that do not attend Corner Church involved is the best! New connection and relationship is the heart of God.
Frequent invitation. Reminding people that 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 September 23.

Reading Accountability Group (RAG)
Let's read together! Every Thursday beginning Aug 27, join IRL outdoors and/or via zoom as we read independently together. The objective here is to build a habit so we won't be reading anything in particular. Nor will we have a discussion during the reading time. So grab a book, magazine article, research paper, devotional, or even nutritional panel on a box of cereal, and vibe out for 60 minutes of uninterrupted reading.
Lead by: Michelle Albert
Schedule: Every Thursday Starting Aug. 27th at 6:30p
Location: Location: Zoom and/or Various Outdoor Locations (Register for Link & Location)
