There are a few things that happen every fall that we can count on. Such things like school starting, NFL is finally back, leaves change color and everything is pumpkin flavored. But what I look forward to the most is STORYCHURCH Fall Semester of Connection Groups!!
Connection Groups is how STORYCHURCH does community. Its a great way to get to know people beyond the Sunday morning experience. Establish long lasting relationships and have a good time with great people. Also they are a great way to invite family and friends to experience STORYCHURCH and get to know its amazing people.
The fall semester will start the week of August 25th and end the week of November 24th. Without further ado, here are your 9 new Fall Connection Groups.
NFL Game Day: Do you love watching football? If you do then it gets no better then to watch it with some amazing friends. Stephen James and Seth Choi are inviting you to come to their place and watch the big games. Can follow your fantasy players or just come to have a great time watching the game. This group is for everyone.
