Connect groups are designed to provide for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and accountability. We believe that this is the place where significant life change occurs and where you can be encouraged and equipped to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Our groups meet weekly. Usually, once a month, these groups will also have a consolidated prayer meeting together with each of the other groups.
The Connect Groups here at Ellettsville First Assembly operate on the biblical principle that each one of us can and should become consistent disciplers of others. It is a strategy for Christian evangelism to fulfill the Great Commission. It is founded upon the idea that every Christian can mentor and lead people in the Christian faith, following the example of Jesus.
The aim of these groups is to form disciples with a Christ-like character who in turn will 'go and make disciples' as commanded by Jesus. Through prayer, encounters with God, teaching, support and encouragement, disciples are then encouraged to also make disciples. In both theory and example this process leads the church to grow exponentially, without losing accountability of Christian values due to the eventual size of the church.
