� Connect Groups are a great way to make a big church feel smaller. We believe those who participate in Groups not only feel a better connection with others, but more of a connection with their faith, the church, and God.
WHEN DO GROUPS MEET?
Connect Groups run three trimesters a year:
- Fall (September-November) – Sign-ups take place in August.
- Winter/Spring (January-May) – Sign-ups take place in December.
- Summer (June-July-August) – Sign-ups take place in May.
WHERE DO I START?
Connect Groups (CGs) capture the essence of how we further build relationships with each other here at The Village. CGs allow us to meet, fellowship, do life together, and work together in service. Everything from growing in God’s Word to sharing hobbies or interests, to learning a new skill, to participating in community service projects… if you are looking for something, we bet you will find it here! Some of the CGs are new; some have been around for a while. Some are in a classroom setting; some are in people’s homes…However you look at it, we believe there is something for everyone here!
Fall 2020 Connect Groups (sept 13 - dec 18)
We have updated the way we offer information on all of our Connect Groups to make it easier for folks to find gatherings specifically for them. The Connect Group selections are now presented as a Finder Tool rather than a catalog!
Check it out by clicking the “Connect Group Finder” button below and see how easy it is to use and find a CG for you! Simply search and then click the “Join” button when you find a CG that you would like to attend! You can print the details of that CG right from your computer!
*Update - Connect groups meeting differently:
Because of the current health quarantine in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, connect groups are currently meeting online. In-person meetings are expected to resume when determined safe by medical professionals and authorities.
*Please allow the Group Finder a few moments to load. Thank you for your patience!

Our College Group meets on Tuesday nights, off campus in Eagleville from 7 – 8 PM. We share a time of games, snacks, and discussion about various topics that are relevant to our stage of life. We are a very welcoming group that seeks to provide a community for our age group to connect, grow, and share life together in a Christian context. We also hold events through the year, and have service opportunities to go out as a group and be the hands and feet of Christ in our community.
Our Young Adult Group meets on Sunday afternoons at 1 PM at Panera’s in Trooper PA. We work through different studies about the Bible and have group discussions. We also challenge each other to engage tough concepts from the Bible and apply it in this phase of our lives.
The Village Singles’ Ministry exists to provide fellowship, personal growth, and to help you, along with others, in your personal relationship with the Christ. This group is for men and women in their 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s who are divorced, widowed, or have never been married. We learn, eat, play, socialize, and worship together.
Village Moms is a ministry for mothers of children of all ages, meeting every third Saturday for “play-dates” in the community beginning September 19th, 2020. This is a time for fellowship and support as we navigate wearing our many hats during these unprecedented times. There is no registration, but an RSVP is required. This helps determine the monthly community meeting locations and this allows us to get in contact with you to welcome you to the ministry and provide the list of play-dates. Don’t journey alone! Find connection and support through Village Moms!
Women of the Word is a place for women to develop and grow in a real and personal relationship with Jesus Christ through Bible study and discipleship groups. We pray that God will build meaningful relationships among women, give them a sense of identity in the body of Christ, and encourage them to use their spiritual gifts to serve God and others. WOW is comprised of women of all ages and walks of life who are seeking to know God more. Meets Tuesdays at 9:00 AM or 7:00 PM, September - May. For details on the format of our meetings for Fall 2020, please visit the WOW Event Page.
