One of the criticisms people have about bigger churches is that it can be hard to get to know people. How can the pastor know if you’ve got something happening in your life with so many people here?
But here’s what I’ve learned, a church is too big when you don’t know anyone. You don’t have to know a lot of people, but you do need to know some people. Here are three ways you can get to know people at The Connection Church.
#1 – Linger in the Lobby.
When the service is over, don’t rush to your car. Take your time. Grab a cup of coffee and talk with someone. Stop by the Information Center and meet one of our hosts. If you have kids in KonnectionKidz, talk to the other parents and the team. They always have time to connect with you.
#2 – Join a Connection Group.
One of the best ways to “do life together” with people is to join a Connection Group. At The Connection Church, we want everyone to be a part of a group because real community develops there. Whether it’s 5, 50, or 500 people in a church service, it’s tough to “get into the weeds” about what’s going on in your life on Sunday morning. Our Connection Groups meet in homes during the week. You can give one a try, and if it’s not the right fit for you, that’s okay, you can try another one.

#3 – Join our Dream Team of volunteers.
This is a great way to get to know people. No matter your stage in life, there’s a certain connection that happens when you serve together. For example, the adults who work in Fuze (our Student Ministry that meets on Wednesday nights), are like family. The same goes for our parking lot team. Serving at The Connection Church isn’t complicated. Just click here to learn about serving with us and get more info.
We’re even having a Dream Team Rally on Saturday, March 9th at 10am at our Buda campus where you can find out more about serving on our Dream Team.
1 Peter 3:8 (TLB) reminds us that: You should be like one big happy family, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds.
These three ways can help us really be a family where you can get to know people and make your church feel a whole lot more connected!
