Connection Groups

Connection groups are…

Bible study groups that meet at various times 

Our purpose statement is “We exist to Love, Win, and Grow Ruston and the world for Christ.” We hope you will plug into a connection group to study God’s word with other believers. 

Looking for a more depth description on a group. Check out our Groups access page
