Last night Andrew and I had the privilege of sharing with our connect group leaders. We are both extremely passionate about connect groups because we have experienced first-hand the benefits of being connected in small groups.
If you’ve never been in a connect group, you’re probably thinking “why should I get involved?” Well, here’s three great reasons.
Connect groups give people a place to CONNECT, CARE and GROW.
We want our church to get bigger because we have been commissioned to share the Good News with others. But our church also needs to get smaller because real change happens in community. In connect groups, we are able to grow closer to people and share in each other’s life. The good and the bad.
Connect groups are like a family. If I’m struggling, you can help me. And if you’re struggling, I can help you through prayer, support, and accountability.
We believe everyone, at any stage can grow closer to Jesus and to be more like who they were created to be. Connect groups encourage people to take their next step, whatever that may be.
There’s nothing quite like feeling like you belong. Like you fit. And our heart is that everyone at Harvest Church feels like they have a place.

If you are interested in hosting a connect group or even opening your home for a connect group leader to lead, please come and chat with Andrew and myself or Nathan and Jami Smith.
We love you all! Have a blessed week.
Pastors Andrew and Rachel.
