Connect in a Group

Our goal is for everyone who is a part of the HPPC congregation will recognize and know at least 5-10 people that they would feel comfortable having a conversation with. One way to build these relationships is in a group setting. 

 

We have different kinds of groups because everyone has a different comfort level when it comes to meeting people and sharing our lives with them. To some extent, all three types of groups will Connect, Grow, and Love, but the focus for each is a little different. Some groups are large (over 40 people), and some have as few as six members. Hopefully, there will be something for everyone!
