Discipleship - Julie Osborn
Discipleship at Connect happens in many different ways. Our regular Sunday sermons include teaching from Scripture, Pastor Julie Osborn meets one on one with church members if they need extra support, and we have a number of discipleship groups open for anyone to join.
Check out the details of these small groups here: Discipleship Groups
Prayer Ministry - Julie Osborn
The Prayer Ministry serves to ignite a commitment, provide guidance, and sustain a delight for prayer within the congregational life and ministries of CBC. This support is for all kinds of private and public prayers - adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication (petition and intercession). Through the power of the Spirit, we work together to make prayer a life-changing and sustaining part of our lives.
Worship Ministry – Albert Lee
The worship ministry focuses on sharing the love of God in the form of music. We help lead the congregation to a place of worship in our church services, but also encourage this to happen outside of our Sunday gatherings. Faith without community can be tricky to navigate, so we aim to create a safe environment where everyone is welcome, and open to encounter the love of God.
Pastoral Care - Jacqui Fisher
This ministry supports the Pastor in ensuring the pastoral needs of Connect's people are attended to. This happens through communal support within small groups as well as one-on-one conversations during Sunday services and throughout the week. All people no matter their background deserve love, care, and a supportive community.
Children’s Ministry – Paula Pio
Kidz Zone is our Sunday morning ministry for children ages 3 – 12 years. Our goal is to support our children and families in growing a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through sharing stories from the bible and looking at how they apply to us today. We worship together through songs, games, crafts, and prayer. For further information you can contact Paula through the church office.
CBC Youth – Chloe Lee
CBC Youth ministry is a ministry for high school aged youth of this church and beyond.
We have a weekly youth group program on Wednesday nights here at church in the Youth room from 7:30pm-9:30pm, as well as many awesome camps and events throughout the year.
In this ministry we seek to grow in faith, learn about our amazing God, connect with each other and God, and have fun. All Youth are welcome and all are loved and belong.
