Connect

 

Why Connect With Others?

 
  • Connection was the secret to the power of the early church.
  • Connection helps us grow in our faith.
  • Connection helps spread the Gospel.
  • Connection gives us the strength to be a better witness.
 
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. —Acts 2:42
 

Adult Connections

Adult Bible Fellowships
Many people call them Sunday School, but we call them Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs). ABFs meet on Sunday mornings the same time as Worship. ABFs are designed for you to connect with others in a smaller, more intimate setting.

Youth Connections

Our youth are a vital part of our church. Not only do they meet for Bible study and fun, but they also learn about how they can live their faith in the real world. They don’t just talk about it—they get out into the community and serve. For more information about the youth and their upcoming activities, visit their Facebook Page (Hanfield Youth).
 
Youth led by Jeff Brady: A place for our youth (grades 7-12) to explore and discover Biblical truths about topics relevant to their lives. They meet in the Cafe (Room 121) on Sundays at 9:30am and 6pm in the Hospitality Room.
