Connection Groups at Christ Church are small groups who gather together to grow spiritually, pray faithfully and serve compassionately together in order that they may increase their capacity to love God above all things and their neighbors as themselves.
Our small groups are one of the primary places where authentic community is experienced at Christ Church. Groups gather to share in the journey of faith. Moreover, these groups provide respite from the anxieties and pressures of life in New York City, as friendships are deepened and individuals strengthened in community.
New Parent Connection Group – We meet twice a month to discuss parenting and raising children of faith. We seek to gain a better understanding of how best to encourage a spiritual life for our children while we form deep connections with one another through scripture, prayer, and fellowship. 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, 10:00 a.m., at Christ Church.
Prayer Line– Everyone is welcome to join us as we pray over the prayer requests we receive weekly. Because Christ said, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them,” we believe that in our joining together in prayer, Christ hears our requests. Pray with us. Thursdays, 12:30 p.m., Christ Church Prayer Line.
Reading in the Spirit – Using the book Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, we will explore and delve deeper into our Christian faith and beliefs. Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. at Christ Church, twice a month.
Generation XY Fellowship – Born between the early-60s to the mid-80s? Guess what? You are a member of Generation XY, the often overlooked generation between Baby Boomers and Millennials. But “Don’t You Forget About Me!” You probably listened to music on cassette tapes, listened to a Walk-Man, even made a mixed tape before moving on to that exciting new thing called CDs. Sound familiar? Then join us for companionship, camaraderie, and frequent connections. Through a variety of ways, we are going to build community – finding out what we have been doing since young adulthood, what have we been through, what have we learned? And we will discover how best to support one another as members of the “Rhythm Nation” while turning the next page of life.
New Jersey Connection Group– The New Jersey Connection Group is designed for Christ Church members who live in New Jersey to be able to connect with one another, pray together, and support one another in lives of faith. The group meets every 3rd Thursday of the month in New Jersey.
