Student Connect Groups

The purpose of Connect Groups is to live out our church’s vision of clearly demonstrating the love of Christ in a small group setting. The students will be building relationships with each other while engaging in creative activities, praying together and learning how scripture applies to their daily lives. Through these groups, our hope is that students become disciples who are clearly marked by prayer, presence, giving, service, witness and growth.

Sunday AM Connect Groups
Our Sunday AM Connect Groups meet together in the Great Hall at 11am. After a time together with icebreakers, announcements and a little craziness, Students split into their Connect Groups: 6th/7th/8th graders, 9th/10th graders and 11th/12th graders.

Midweek Connect Groups
Our Midweek Connect Groups are a place where students can grow in their faith surrounded by an intentional and consistent community. These communities delve deep into scripture and topics that are impacting student's daily lives.
 
High School Mid-Week Connect Groups
Our High School Connect Group meets on Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm at the Stovall's. If you’re interested in becoming a part of this Connect Group, please email ashley@clearlakemethodist.org for more information.

Encounter (6th-12th Grade)
Join us every Sunday from 6-8pm for Encounter. Come get to know some new friends and enjoy a $3 meal in the Fellowship Hall. After dinner, we move to the Great Hall to participate in games and other activities. We split Intermediate Students and High School for small groups before coming back together for closing worship.
