Connect Groups

2019 Fall/Winter 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 September 2019. Why not try a few? We look forward to connecting with you!



Hosted by Pastor Linda Budd

Fall 2019 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!)

Location: RiverGate Church – The Family Room

Did you know we all have a song in our hearts that God placed there? Whether you can carry a tune or not God has placed a song in your heart. In this group we will be coming together to soak in the Lord. We will be adoring him with our minds and hearts. We will also be listening, being still, focusing on how great he is, & singing a new song. This group is open for everyone! (except small children).




Hosted by Dan & Tami Sanders

Fall 2019 Dates: The 2nd/4th Fridays of each month at 6:30pm

Just as the name suggestions, our group is all about having fun! We like to munch on yummy snacks and we’re not afraid to embrace the opportunity to laugh through a few lighthearted games. But it doesn’t stop there. When you join us, you’ll find that new relationships can quickly run deep through conversation that enables us to connect with one another and prayer that connects with us with the Father. Your experience at RGC will only be more rich when you have friends who can love each other, laugh together, and eat together!
