Connect Groups are small groups who meet regularly to make authentic Christian friendships, to read & discuss the Word of God and apply it to life, to pray together and for one another; and are intentional about mission in their daily lives. Alleluia! is committed to these small groups as a way to connect to God, to his Word, and to one another.

Our goal is to create opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
