What are Connect Groups?

Connect Groups are safe environments where people can engage in a lifestyle of spiritual growth and authentic community. People connect naturally around similar interests, hobbies, and experiences, and our Connect Groups facilitate friendships through these connections. Various types of groups are offered to reflect the people at CHR. The groups continue to change and develop with the interests and needs of the people. Anyone in the community may participate in our Connect Groups.

Why Connect Groups?

We value authentic relationships! Connect Groups exist to help cultivate relationships, Christian growth, and service. Our Connect Groups meet in homes, businesses, and public areas throughout Hampton Roads. The groups use the Bible as a guide and emphasize diverse issues and interests such as sports and outdoor activities, apologetics, marriage, prayer, serving, and parenting. They change and begin anew four times a year, so you have the opportunity to be a part of different groups.
