Connect Groups



What are Connect Groups?

While we continue to gather on Sundays for worship and celebration, we need to also start to scatter throughout the Ponca City area in small groups called  Connect Groups. Each group is committed to living life together in three spheres/core values: Learn, Love, and Live.


Learn: The unique aspect of Christianity is the fact that God instigated communion with us as humanity. Within a relationship with Jesus Christ, we are given the opportunity to have an interchange or sharing of thoughts, emotions and intimate communication with the living God. This experience is designed to happen in the context of community. 


Connect Groups spend time together learning from Jesus and each other. As we learn the Word of God, sharing what it is teaching us and where it is leading us, praying for each other and encouraging one another in this life with Jesus, we will become more of who we were born to be.


Love: We are created by and for relationships. We are human beings created to “be” with others. When God created man, He knew that it was not good for us to be alone. With that original design in mind, we have placed this core value of love into Connect Groups.  Connect Groups “do life” together in the context of community. This is not a church “program” you attend together or a “have to do.” This is simply living life together. Hang out, play, pray and help each other through life.


Live: Followers of Jesus are a “commissioned community.” Jesus’ parting words to us were this, “Jesus undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: ‘God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you.   I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28, The Message).


That is our charge to accomplish together. This mission is “why” we exist! To forget this is to forget our purpose and therefore to lose our passion. Connect Groups intentionally look for relational and creative ways to serve alongside Jesus, to live out the Gospel in our neighborhoods, city, and world.


How do I sign up? 

We have several groups that meet during the week.  If you are interested in signing up, email the church at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (580) 765-3956.


Our Expectation

Our expectation going forward is that if you call EHCC your home, then you will get involved in a Connect Group. We believe it is that important.
