God has wired us for community! All of us need friends. Connection Point is the method we’ve developed to help you find easy on-ramps to people and ministries at Neighborhood!

It’s a two session highly interactive experience that takes place on back to back Sunday mornings. You’ll get to meet key staff and Pastors as well as be assigned a trained volunteer Connection Coach who will assist you in getting connected, getting information, and finding community.

Whether you’ve been here for 1 week, 1 year, or 10 years, THIS is your FIRST STEP in getting connected to others and finding family at Neighborhood! 

Next Connection Point is November 3 & 10

Why Should We Connect?

God Commands It

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

– Hebrews 10:24-25

It Provides Family

They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

- Acts 2:46-47

Be the Light

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

- Matthew 5:14-16
