CONNECT means three things at Only Believe Ministries.

Life Groups – Home Groups – Connect Groups

Life Groups

Helping people reach their full potential … that’s what Jesus was all about, and that’s what we’re about, too. Life Groups touch lives and help people establish a rock solid foundation based on God’s Word.
Watch for the announcements about the Brotherhood Breakfast times and dates! For guys of all ages. It’s a time of eating a hearty breakfast, getting to know one another, and getting into the Word together! We hope to see you at our next gathering!
Following the acclaimed Divorce Care program, this group helps those who are separated or divorced find help, discover hope, and experience healing with the Divorce Care family. You don’t have to go through it alone! Divorce Care offers two sessions of 13 week classes yearly. For times and dates, you may contact the group leader, Chris Richards, by clicking the email button below.
We believe strong marriages create strong families, and strong families are the bedrock of every good church. We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 9:00 am in The Loft for fellowship and learning. Coffee & pastries are always on the menu and free childcare is available in the Volunteer Center in Children’s Church. We also meet on other occasions, so we hope to see you soon! For more info, contact the group leaders, Paul & Carol Swartz.
Surge Prayer meets on the 1st Sunday of each month after service in room 303. Come for a time of intercession, edification, and fellowship. For more information, please contact the leader, Pat Post, by clicking on the email button below.

Home Groups

Home Groups are a great way to get to know people in the church on a personal level. There’s always plenty of good food, interesting conversation and fun! Home Groups meet once a month on the 2nd Sunday in various communities near our church. If you would like to join a group, simply click on the city of your choice, fill out the form, and someone will contact you soon with location and other information.

Connect Groups

It’s easy to get acquainted with others in our Connect Groups. Just locate a group that interests you, and when you click on the group you will find information about what they do, and you’ll be able to email the group leader for more info on what’s coming soon. It won’t be long before you meet other people who enjoy the same things that you do!
We are seasoned citizens who enjoy getting together to pray, fellowship, and have fun. Come join us! LouAnn Sanford is the group leader. You can meet with her or email her below on more info regarding group dates and times.
We believe every talent is a gift from God. So when we meet for fun and interactive art projects, sometimes we learn new skills, and sometimes we share our own. Come create and enjoy God’s goodness with us! Mandy Fast is the group leader and Art Group meets the last Friday of each month at 7pm in the Slam Sanctuary.
It doesn’t matter if you are an expert or a beginner, there’s always room for one more! So come on out and enjoy a game of frisbee golf with us! Bring your discs if you have them but no worries if you don’t! There will be extra.

It’s important for moms to come together to cry, laugh, and share in one another’s crazy journey through motherhood. Whether your kids are still in diapers or driving the family car, come sit with us, and sip a little caffeine. Lindsey Litchfield is the group leader and they meet the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month at 9:00 am in the Nursing Mother’s Room.
We love cars, every beautiful inch of them! So, we go to shows together, we talk about challenges and rewards of restoration, and we put on a car show of our own. We can’t wait to meet you! Elaine Byer is the group leader and the group schedule for the year is listed below.
