Connect Groups

Your faith journey was never intended to be a solo mission. Helping people grow in their faith is one the reasons God set up this Community Church in 1937. CONNECT GROUPS are where you learn more about God, His Word, and each another. You have two choices on how to participate in a CONNECT GROUP; in person or online.

The CONNECT GROUP IN PERSON comes together at CFBC at 6:00PM on most Wednesday nights*. Join others on the same faith journey as you while making lasting and meaningful relationships with other people.

About the Upcoming Study

On Wednesday, October 6, Chester’s First Baptist’s next Connect Group, Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, will start.  Louie Giglio’s newest book unpacks Psalm 23 to help you reject the negative narrative from the enemy and take authority over your mind and live fully in Christ.  In six sessions, you’ll discover God’s plans to experience rest, hope, and freedom in Christ.

You can order your Connect Group resources at the links below or let us know by filling out the form, and we’ll order them for you.
