Connect Groups

Build relationships and grow together in Christ

What are Connect Groups for?

At 180° Church, our mission is to make disciples. Connect Groups are one piece of our process to help us accomplish that mission. We believe that we grow the most in our relationship with Jesus when we are in relationship with others.

Our Sunday Connect Groups are ongoing, and our Wednesday Connect Groups are six-week studies. Our hope for you is that being part of a Connect Group will help you build meaningful relationships and help you move forward in your journey with Jesus.

Childcare/Youth Ministry is provided for Wednesday Connect Groups for youth of all ages. On Sundays, childcare is available for ages birth through pre-k during the 9:00 Connect Group, and ages birth through 5th grade during the 10:30 Connect Group.

Wednesday Night Groups

Wednesday night Connect Groups will be hosted at the church and begin January 8, 2020 at 7:00pm.

Steve & Joyce Hale


If someone asked you to explain the gospel, what would you say? What is the good news of the Christian faith? Writing to the Galatians, Paul made it clear how easily we can be tempted to turn toward fraudulent gospels, especially those that teach we can earn God’s love through our works. Though they may have the appearance of truth, they are lifeless and leave us empty in the end.

Begins Wednesday, January 8, 2020. There are no supplemental resources to purchase with this study.

It starts at home

In these six sessions, we will explore biblical and tangible ways that parents—couples, single parents, blended families and grandparents—can build a legacy of faith for their children.

Each Bible study session includes interviews with everyday parents talking about their own doubts, fears and desires. Gary Thomas, Matt Chandler, and Kurt and Olivia Bruner provide powerful teaching that will help you give your kids what they need to build a solid framework for lifelong faith.

Begins Wednesday, January 8, 2020. There are no supplemental resources to purchase with this study.

Not a fan

Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: "Follow Me." Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn't want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. Build around the engaging approach of Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, this one of kind small group study, sermon series, movie, and book examines what it means to deny one's self and truly follow Jesus. 

Begins Wednesday, January 8, 2020. Participants should purchase the journal for this study ($6.49 on Amazon).

Sunday Morning Groups

Both Sunday morning Connect Groups use D6 curriculum. The video below explains the idea behind D6. While D6 is designed to encourage family discipleship, it is for any adult that wants to grow in their relationship with Jesus and knowledge of the Bible, not just parents. In January, these groups will begin a study in the Book of Romans and look at the theme of Living Free in Christ. February will be a topical study about Authenticity and Accountability.

Sunday Afternoon

Depression: Looking up from the Stubborn Darkness (1:00pm on 2nd & 4th Sunday)

Where is God in the struggle? Looking away from despair towards hope can feel risky. What if God doesn’t come through for you? What if you don’t feel instantly better? Instead of offering simple platitudes or unrealistic cure-all formulas, Edward T. Welch addresses the complex nature of Depression with compassion and insight, applying the rich treasures of the Christian gospel, and giving fresh hope to those who struggle. Depression can be a crippling mental health issue, but with faith in God new hope can be discovered and a path to becoming a healthy happy Christian again can be found.

This will be a book study looking at depression and anxiety and how it affects our daily lives as well as others who are walking through it with us. We will use the book, Depression: Looking up from the Stubborn Darkness, by Edward T. Welch as a guide. Please purchase a copy of the book and bring it to the first meeting on Sunday, January 26 at 1:00pm. Kevin and Cindy Tyra will host this Connect Group at 1673 Sparkleberry Dr, 37042 on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.

Ladies' Groups

Melissa Lewis & Rachael Mir (Friday 9:30 - 11:00AM)

This Connect Group will begin Friday, January 10, 2020. Purchase The Road Back to You on Amazon here.
