Connection Groups

Growing in faith and friendships.


Connection Groups

We’re committed to helping YOU find places to connect and grow in your faith and friendships. One of the places we hope that happens is through Connection Groups. In these groups, time will be spent in a relaxed environment sharing thoughts and insights from the previous week’s sermon theme/text or other study material. It can feel scary to join a group but the benefits definitely outweigh the fear! Our hope is that you will find a place to belong and grow closer to others and deeper in the Bible.

Youth Ministry, Men’s Ministry and Women’s Ministry all continue to meet throughout the school year, our Spring session of Connection Groups begins the week of April 23 and lasts 5 weeks.  You can sign up by clicking on one of the links below.

If you have any questions about joining a Connection Group or would like more information, please contact Associate Pastor of Discipleship Meghan Rush at 509-741-7632 or email at

For the safety of our group hosts, when a group is held in a private home, the address will not be listed online, but address info will be given by email after you inquire.
