Connect Ministries

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”  Hebrews 10:24-25

Connect Groups

Groups come in all shapes and sizes, and consists of people ages 18 to 98!! No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”  Life is not meant to be lived alone. God intends for us to experience life together!  We encourage you to get into a connect group.

WHAT is a Connect Group?

A Connect Group is an intentional gathering of approximately three to twelve individuals who are learning together to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, while developing authentic friendships. Our Connect Groups mission is to gather for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, encouragement, and evangelism and then go out ready to study our Bible, pray, fellowship, encourage, and evangelize more and more!!

WHY a Connect Group?

DOING LIFE TOGETHER is part of God’s plan.  Sharing your life and investing in other’s lives brings about authentic community.   The Pastors here at Putnam will never be able to meet ALL the individual needs in our church family. We know, we have experienced, and we praise the Lord for the fact that many needs can be met through Connect Groups.

WHERE do Connect Groups meet?

Putnam offers both on and off campus groups! Connect groups meet in  homes, the workplace, or on campus here at Putnam Baptist. Currently, we have groups meeting in various locations in Cleveland County! Chances are we have a group meeting near you … or we could start one!
