Why Connection Events?
Why? Why not?
Relationships have many degrees and stages. Paul uses the illustration of a body in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 to describe relationships in the church. Every part is necessary. Each part needs and is needed by the others. This deep level of symbiosis and synergy does not happen by accident or by simply being in the same room on occasion. Connection Events are a step towards what Paul is talking about.
What is a Connection Event?
Intentional / Relational / Prayerful
A Connection Event is an event for people so they can deepen relationships with each other through study, activity, or shared interest. Each event includes encouragement and prayer time and is designed to facilitate the growth of deeper relationships.

What is the process?
Connection Events are designed to facilitate the growth of deeper relationships. That comes through time together doing different things. Plan something together, and do it!
Summer 2022 Connection Event Details:
Elements of a Successful Connection Event:
Aiming towards success
Shared leadership. Having co-leaders diversifies responsibility.
Clear communication. Having all the details communicated from the beginning helps people know what they are getting involved in and helps people stay involved for the duration.
Cross-community. Having Corner Church people from each community involved is ideal. We are better together.
Inclusion. Having people involved who do not attend Corner Church is the best! New connection and relationship is the heart of God.
Frequent invitation. Reminding people who are involved about what is happening with emails and text messages not only helps but is paramount to the success of an event.
Connect with people that may be interested in co-leading.
Reach out to a Corner Church pastor if you would like help or insight.
Organize all your Connection Event details.
