Connect Groups are an important part of all that we do at NewCov because we believe that life is a team sport.

Life Groups meet weekly in homes or other off-campus locations (coffee shops, restaurants, etc). Using a Connect Group study guide, these groups dig into what was taught during the Sunday sermon with the goal of an even deeper understanding of God’s Word.


Getting involved in a Connect Group offers:

  • A sense of intimacy and community for people.
    That’s why we shoot for the magic number of twelve people involved in a group. It’s simply the maximum number which experience has shown can sustain the intimacy needed to meet peoples needs and allow for quality conversations.
  • A place for spiritual exploration and growth.
    Connect Groups are an environment where people are encouraged and supported in the sharing of stories, experiences, ideas, and feelings, as they explore God’s Word.
  • An opportunity to serve others at NewCov and in the community.
    Connect Groups are encouraged to get involved in service opportunities as a group.  In addition to helping others, these service projects are a great opportunities to strengthen your friendships.

      • How long is a Connect Group commitment?
        Only the length of a sermon series, which is generally 5 to 8 weeks long. It is entirely up to you if you choose to continue or not after the series is over.
      • I’m interested in leading a Connect Group. What’s involved?
        Leading a Connect Group is as easy as making a commitment to meet regularly with a group of up to 12 people either at your home or another location off of the NewCov campus. You will be provided a study guide that will facilitate your group’s discussion. You will be asked to attend periodic training sessions to keep you up to date on important information and to share ideas to make your group’s experience the best possible. Your commitment to lead a group can be as short as a sermon series or as long as you wish to continue.
