Discipleship Team

Fall Connexion Groups

Christ said, “where two or three are gathered in my name, I’m there with them” (Matthew 18:20, CEB).  Part of the life of faith includes gathering with small groups of individuals for fellowship and learning.  At Willmar UMC, this process takes place in Connexion groups: small groups of individuals who gather together weekly for fellowship and study.  Connexion groups meet throughout the week, in a variety of locations, and focus on a variety of topics.  Connexion groups have a leader responsible for facilitating conversation, and a host responsible for welcoming members into the space. 

Signups occur throughout September, at the Connexion Fair on September 8th, through the church office, or on SignupGenius through the church website.  Unless noted, groups will begin at the beginning of October and conclude by the end of November.  Once you have signed up for your Connexion group, you will receive a confirmation, including a final schedule and other details for your group.  Participants of groups with a book-based curriculum can purchase a copy of the book independently, or through the church.
