Ministries

Sunday Services

We say it like this, "it's OK to not be OK, but God loves you too much to stay that way". No matter who you are or what you're going through, we've designed our services to be welcoming to anyone and everyone. At a typical Connection Church service you will feel welcomed, get to engage in worship, and hear a message that's simple, applicable and all about Jesus.  

Kids and Student Ministries

Konnection Kids is the children’s ministry at Connection Church for children aged 8 weeks to 5th grade. We want you, as parents, to feel comfortable leaving your children with us. We want to provide safe, fun, and inviting environments where the Bible is taught creatively in a way they can understand. We want your child to have a growing relationship with us, their friends, and especially Jesus!

Connect Groups

Connect Groups are small group communities that meet all throughout the week in different homes. We say it like this, "real life change happens in community". We believe Connect Groups are such a vital part of our ministry. Our hope and desire is to get everyone connected with a group of believers they can build lasting friendships with and be encouraged to grow in their relationship with Jesus. 

Missions and Outreach

We believe that saved people live sent! What that means is that means is that the good news of Jesus isn't supposed to stay inside the 4 walls of the church, but rather the church is commanded to take Jesus with them wherever they go. We have 3 pathways to accomplish this: Go groups, church planting and international missions. 

Connect Groups

What is a Connect Group?

We were all designed with a desperate need for community in our hearts. When we look at the book of Genesis in the Bible, we see how God spoke about Adam’s need for a helper, someone to walk alongside him and help him. If we all took a minute to evaluate our lives, we would see that we can’t do it all on our own and that we need help to just live life. They are not a replacement for a relationship with God, but they are there to help each of us grow to more like Jesus. Connect groups consist of 8-12 believers who meet weekly to do life together. These groups are designed to cultivate Christ-centered friendships that encourage, challenge, and focus our lives towards a growing relationship with Jesus.


What is the purpose of a Connect Group?

GROWTH

God desires for all of us to grow in our relationship with Him. Growth happens best in community. Connect Groups are where growth happens best and where we learn how to tangibly be a disciple of Jesus. 


CARE

God doesn't want anyone to have to walk through life alone. This is why the church was never intended to be an event to attend but a family to belong to. This is what  Connect Groups are all about. 


MISSION

Jesus' last words to His followers were, "Go and make disciples of all nations." To follow Jesus is to be a missionary. God desires for every believer to be a disciple maker.  Connect Groups are a place for you to learn how to do this.


Why should I join a Connect Group?

We were created to live in community. Community protects us from being isolated and vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy. 1 Peter 5:8 tells us that the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. We’ve all seen the Discovery channel special where the antelope has strayed too far. Trust us, not only are Connect Groups a place where you’re protected, but also loved. We would love to have you join one of our Connect Groups at any of our campuses today.

Konnection Kids

It’s my first time here!

Once you arrive, let one of our Connectors (what we call our volunteers) know it’s your first time with us and they’ll get you and your child checked in! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. We’re here to help make your child’s (and yours too, of course) experience with Konnection Kids the best it can be!


Safety & Security


Your child’s safety is our first priority. All Connectors (what we call our volunteers) are interviewed by one of our staff, have passed a federal background check, and we have our own security team to ensure your child’s safety. We also use a security tag system for child check-in and pick-up, and a paging system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the service.


What To Bring


If your child is aged 8 weeks old - K, bring a diaper bag with a bottle or spill-proof cup labeled with their name, diapers, pacifier, change of clothes etc. If you are in the early stages of potty training, please make sure your child is wearing a diaper or pull up and let us know how we can help!

If your child is in 1st-5th grade, all they need is their Bible and their offering!


Sickness Policy


If your child is sick or contagious, please don’t bring them to Konnection Kids. We want to ensure all of our children are in a safe and healthy environment. Here are some signs of sickness: a fever over 100 degrees, diarrhea, persistent runny nose with green or yellow discharge, earache, soar throat, lethargy, hacking or wet-sounding cough, vomiting, or any sort of skin rash.


What’s the check-in process?

When you check-in, you will receive a set of security tags for you and for your child. Your child will wear the tag with his or her name on it and you’ll keep the other. You will need your tag after the service when checking your child out. No child can be picked up without a security tag. If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, your child’s security number will appear on the screen in the auditorium.


Who’s teaching my children?

Our Connectors (what we call our volunteers) are the primary people teaching your children about Jesus. Every Connector is screened with an interview, a federal background check, and we also offer CPR training throughout the year. If you’re as passionate about investing in children as we are, sign up to become a Connector today!


Our Mission

Partnering with parents to connect kids to a growing relationship with Jesus. 

Our Values


Creative Bible Teaching

We want to bring Jesus and the stories of the Bible to life through activities and discussions that keep our children engaged. We want all of our children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

Relationships

It’s our goal to have your children excited about a growing relationship with Jesus Christ! We also want them to have a great relationship with our Connectors serving in this ministry, as well as other families that attend each week.

Age Appopriate

We understand that how we relate to people can make all the difference in the world. That’s why we design everything with our kids in mind. We have environments for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and 1st-5th grade students. Each one of these environments helps us relay Jesus in ways they can understand.



Fun and Inviting

We think your kids should be excited about coming to church! We’ve set up our different environments in ways that invite the kids to come in, play, and learn about Jesus.

Think Safe

The safety of our children is something we take very seriously. Every child’s nametag is matched to a parent identification number, every volunteer is screened by an interview and federal background check, and every hallway is monitored throughout the service.

Connection Students

What is Connection Students?

Connection Students is the middle and high school ministry at Connection. We generally refer to Wednesday nights as The Best Night of the Week around here because anytime you can get together with a group of friends who’ve become like family, learn how to be more like Jesus, and have fun doing it is...The Best Night of the Week. Check out our Times and Locations section below for a campus near you!


Our Mission

Connecting Students to a growing relationship with Jesus.


What to Expect

On a typical night students will have time before the service to hang with friends and meet new ones. Then they’ll worship together and hear a message rooted in the Bible. We finish everything up in small groups so they can join the conversation and ask questions. Bottom line, we love to have fun, but we want your student to connect to a growing relationship with Jesus!


Who is teaching my Child?

Each week students hear from a team of communicators, including our Student Pastors as well as volunteers called Connectors. Every volunteer and staff member must have an approved background check before serving in our student ministry. If you have any other questions about this ministry, be sure to speak with a leader on a Wednesday Night when dropping off your student.


When and Where

We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 pm at our Connection Student space located at 122 S. Monroe Street in downtown Dublin! We can't wait to connect with you!

Missions and Outreach



Local Outreach

At Connection, we want to see every member missionally engaged in serving our city.  We believe that God has strategically placed us in our community to be a blessing, make a difference, and take the good news of the Gospel into every corner of our city. The main way we do this is by mobilizing people to live out the gospel where they are: at work, at the ball field, at the grocery store, at the dinner table. Another way we do this is through specific outreaches each quarter such as: Snow Day, ServeVidalia, Fall Festival, and Christmas Service Day. 


Church Planting

At Connection, we believe the local church is God's Plan A. So, one of the primary ways we love our world is by planting new churches. We believe the most beneficial thing for every community is a church that can proclaim and live out the gospel of Jesus, so we are committed to planting churches in cities all over the world.

International Missions


God is making a great name for himself among the nations, and he has called all Christians to be an active part of his mission. At Connection, we want to mobilize people to the nations in three time frames:

  1. Short-Term (1-2 weeks) - We want to send teams to long-term workers to provide care, educate, prayer, evangelize, do disaster relief, or whatever is needed in these areas.

  2. Mid-Term (2 weeks - 2 years) - We want to send mid-term workers to come alongside long-term workers to bolster their work, provide constant “injections” of excitement and vibrancy, and encourage them. Also, mid-term options can help clarify God’s call on individual lives.

  3. Long-Term (more than 2 years) - We want to send long-term workers to make disciples, plant churches, and raise up indigenous leaders.
