Spotswood Adults.

We love to invest in our community here at Spotswood. As a multi-generational church, it is important to us to reach and support all ages and stages of life. Below are the major areas that we serve adults. We’d specifically like to call your attention to our Connect Groups. The foundation of Spotswood is our connect groups. There are many groups, all stage-graded, for all adults. This is square one in getting connected at Spotswood. These groups focus on transformational teaching, biblical community, and missional living.

Primetimers

Our senior adults have an active, thriving ministry with many service opportunities, monthly trips and meals, and more!

Men

We know a crucial aspect of the family and our church is men. Our men’s ministry is dedicated to equipping our men to be godly men in the home, workplace, and church.

Women

When the weight of life and family press in, our women’s ministry is there to provide encouragement, community and love.

Midweek

Join us Wednesday night for our midweek activities! Growth groups and impact groups are offered for adults while your children participate in student events or AWANA.

Connect Groups

WHAT ARE CONNECT
GROUPS?

Connect groups are not classes, but rather communities–a place where you can connect with other believers and join with them in being on mission with God and in His Word. Each group is essentially a “church within a church” through which we build community in the congregation as a whole.

Our connect groups meet every week, and while many meet on campus Sunday mornings, others choose to gather at different times during the week. For more information, or for assistance finding a group that’s right for you, please email smallgroups@spotswood.org.

FIVE UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF CONNECT GROUPS

1

Connect Groups are one of the main ways we assimilate and disciple adults within our church.

2

Connect Groups provide opportunities for further discipleship through the growth groups that are formed from within the Connect Group.

3

Connect Groups utilize a team approach to ministry, as opposed to an individual teacher keeping a group going. This allows for more people to be involved in the work of the group.

4

Connect Groups are not classes but rather communities. A place where you can connect with other believers and join with them in being on-mission with God in the world.

5

Connect Groups use curricula to guide the study, but the true curriculum for each group is the Bible.

THREE UNIQUE OBJECTIVES OF OUR CONNECT GROUPS

MISSIONAL LIVING

This means that our expectation is for every group member to be a missionary where they work, live, and play. Jesus’ strategy for reaching the world is simple. It was to get a whole lot of little versions of Him infiltrating every nook and cranny of society by reproducing Himself in and through His people in every place throughout the world.

TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHING

Our Connect Group leaders teach people, not lessons. The goal is not the transfer of facts (information), but changed lives (transformation).

BIBLICAL COMMUNITY

Discipleship best happens in the context of relationships. It is within biblical community that a follower of Christ will best experiences spiritual growth. What does biblical community look like? Biblical community is a safe place where followers of Christ can share their failures, hurts, and struggles, with the assurance that those in that community will offer love and support, and grace when needed.

Growth + Impact Groups.

Our growth groups exist to help our church community grow deeper in their faith, while our impact groups are focused on equipping our church to be missionaries where they work, live, and play.
