Connect Groups are the lifeblood of the House of Praise. Our belief is that “We’re not a church WITH groups, but a church OF groups” that does most ministry through the connect groups.

We believe that discipleship takes place in the context of meaningful relationships. Connect Groups consist of a small group of people (less than 20) from House of Praise that meet weekly, for 60 to 90 minutes, to grow spiritually and to connect with new friends.

Connect Groups at the House of Praise are semester based. Each semester is 8-12 weeks long, with meetings that are online or in person.

The House of Praise will be doing a Church-wide Connect Group this semester utilizing Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU). This highly acclaimed program will help you take back control of your finances and make getting out of debt a real possibility.

The cost is $100 per household, you can pay right on our website Give page, select the FPU in funds. Once you have selected your group AND paid the $100 fee, you will be sent a welcome email from your Connect Group leader and a link to register for the FPU online tools. This Connect Group WILL change your life!

Finding financial freedom is more important now than ever and Financial Peace University has helped over 5 Million people achieve financial peace by applying biblical principles to our money. Sign up today, it will change your life forever!

Look at the group time, and whether you wish to meet in person or online, and choose the best option for you.
