Where Friendships Happen

Even though you’ll find that our weekly Sunday morning celebrations are a great opportunity to meet many warm and friendly people, the best place to forge friendships and experience Genuine Christian Community (GCC) is during the week in our Connect Groups. These groups are where you’ll find friendship, support, encouragement, love and prayer.

For more information about a group, please complete the contact form below or give a CG leader a phone call. They will be happy to give you the meeting address and confirm they are meeting that week.

Summer Break starts June 23. All Connect Groups are meeting Friday nights in the Park – Starting June 7 we will be meeting at Starridge Park – 13745 Carriage Rd, Poway, CA 92064 from 5:30- dusk

From time to groups have to cancel an evening or change location – so it is best that you call before you visit the first time.

Men’s Connect Group – Tuesdays – 6:30 pm – Poway

Ric Higgins (858) 699-5045
Together we seek a closer relationship with Father God. We work to enhance our personal lives, our church and our families. Through an appreciation of each other, and Jesus’s love we build each other up to live as the victorious warriors we were made to be.

Kid Friendly, Babysitting provided.
We will begin promptly at 6:30 pm with a time of fellowship and then some worship. At 7:00 pm we will dig into the Word (we will be doing some themed studies, but to begin with we will be doing some Ice Breaker stuff in the Word to get to know one another and where Holy Spirit wants to lead out study time) together with a brief study and a good amount of prayer for one another to close things out.
