Spiritual growth happens best in community. We love coming together as a whole body to worship, but Connect Groups give an opportunity to do life with each other and grow your faith in Christ.  We have many Connect Groups for every stage of life and would love to see you in one. If you have questions about a group, you can contact the church office by phone

(701-845-4193) or email (valleycitynaz@msn.com).   Here is a list of our Connect Groups for the 2020 winter season.  

We believe in the power of prayer!  Join with others  as we seek God for our families, our church, our community, and our nation.

The Gathering is not a Bible study, but rather a way for people to connect to Jesus and to each other.  There will be a relevant topic of discussion each week as we sit around small tables while relaxing & enjoying a cup of coffee and a snack.  These topics will help us grow spiritually and apply God's word in our lives.
