Connection Point Church began as a monthly gathering in January 2017, has progressed into a weekly gathering of 75 people, and is preparing for a grand opening in the winter of 2017-18. We are a community that worships God, loves people, and is learning to live like Jesus. Our mission is to connect people to Jesus through the life-transforming power of the gospel. Towards that end we are passionate about living lives that are motivated by the gospel, grounded in the Word, and empowered by the Spirit.
