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.
Connect Groups take place a semester at a time. 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 is provided for both Sunday and Wednesday Connect Groups.
Wednesday Night Groups
Wednesday night Connect Groups will be hosted at the church and begin August 14th at 7:00pm.

Culture Shock - Chip Ingram
Where do you stand on issues like: Truth, Sex, Homosexuality, Abortion, the Environment, and the Church and Politics? More importantly, what does God say? More than ever before, believers must develop convictions based on research, reason, and biblical truth. But it doesn’t stop there. It’s equally important that you’re able (and willing) to communicate these convictions with a love and respect that reflects God’s love. This series will help you learn how to respond with love, even in the face of controversy. In the process, you’ll discover the power of bringing light–not heat–to the core issues at the heart of society today.
Begins Wednesday, August 14!

Grace Filled Marriage - Tim Kimmel
This study explores a radical hypothesis: Most marriages don't fail because they lack love…they fail because they lack grace.
Grace can make good marriages into great marriages. Grace can bring intimacy and restoration to broken marriages. Grace means giving your spouse something they desperately need, but don't necessarily deserve…things like kindness, forgiveness and the benefit of the doubt. And the best part is that if we focus on grace, the love we so desire with our spouse will naturally follow.
Begins Wednesday, August 14. Order the study guide here before August 14.
Abiding in Jesus
Do you have the desire to spend time in the Word but have a difficult time knowing how or what you should read? Do you wish you could understand what you're reading? Could you benefit from a group of people encouraging you to daily spend time in the Bible?
In this group we will be focused on equipping you with tools to learn how to abide in Jesus. We will break down scripture together, pray for each other, and explore how we can live a life connected to the vine. If you've been interested in discipleship, this is a good first step to learning more.
Begins Wednesday, August 14!
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.

Sonda Finley (Thursday 6:00PM)
The Old Testament book of Esther makes no reference to God, but the entire story bears the unmistakable imprint of His ways. Your faith will be strengthened as you see how God intervened to deliver His people from annihilation. God still masterfully orchestrates and weaves together every detail of our lives and this universe in jaw-dropping ways. Nothing and no one can thwart His plan!
Begins Thursday, August 22.
Melissa Lewis & Rachael Mir (Friday 9:30AM)
What went wrong? Why did God let this happen? Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.
