An extension of the large weekend gathering, broken down into small groups who do life together. These small groups include sermon-based groups, study-based groups, and social groups.
The Need For Connection
At the center of the human soul is the need for connection. Without relationships, it is impossible to thrive. Connect Groups open the door to form those healthy relationships, while encouraging others to take their next step in their walk with Christ.
Connect Groups at Compel Church are opportunities to connect with people who share your interests, who are at a similar stage in life, or who have experience in an area where you would like to grow. A group is 3-12 people who meet regularly at various times and locations.
Sermon groups meet weekly to discuss the message from the previous weekend. This is a time to dive deeper into the Scriptures and learn more about what God is speaking to us as a church. These groups meet on campus, in homes, coffee shops and sometimes a local restaurant.
Study groups gather to discuss a topic-based Bible study. This is an opportunity to grow in your faith in specific areas like marriage, parenting, finances, or even walking through a difficult season. Study groups meet several times a month in various locations all across DeSoto County.
Social groups are focused on having fun and building friendships. They meet several times a month, based on different interests and hobbies. If you’ve never been a part of a group at Compel, Social Groups are a great first step.
