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 Winter 2022 Connect Group Semester Runs 8 Weeks, from 2/13/22 to 4/9/22
