The agenda for this week's meeting.


  1. 2019 Community Projects- During the Members Meeting on Sunday, we mentioned that in 2019, each Connect Group will be leading their own local missions outreach at least twice. Of course, nothing has to be set in stone now, but start getting ideas and find out what passions and connections are within your group. As always, if you need help in any way, let me or Megan know.

Main Idea:

Where God wants you to be.

Before you read?

  1. What do you remember from Sunday’s Sermon?
  2. The mission statement of our church is “To lead you from where you are to where God wants you to be.” In this week’s sermon, Joel taught us CPC’s vision for “where God wants us to be”. Do you remember what He called the vision?
  3. What are the 3 relationships to live The Connected Life?

Read the Bible

Mark 12:28-34

28 And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32 And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him.33 And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions
