Connect Groups


At RiverGate Church, we offer Connect Groups – small groups that enable you to connect with others and grow deeper in relationships while encountering God. We always have a number of Connect Groups meeting at various times and locations, any of which you are welcome to jump in and join, and we have several that will be starting beginning February 2020Why not try a few? We look forward to connecting with you!



Hosted by Pastor Linda Budd

Spring 2020 Dates: Every Sunday night at 6pm

After Pastor Linda reads an excerpt from Signs and Wonders by Maria Woodsworth Etter, the group encounters the Holy Spirit as participants learn how to receive and give words of knowledge. Imagine being able to give a witness’ account of seeing a blind person’s sight restored! Even better, imagine being the one that God uses to do that!! Everyone is welcome – come to be healed, to watch, to learn how to minister healing to others, to see the glory of God tangibly manifested. You WILL encounter God! (Do you need to bring your own book? Nope! Just come!)
