For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
Connection 2 Christ (C2C) is a movement comprised of small group communities. With the support of Evangelical Catholic, our partner organization, leaders are trained and small group faith communities are formed. A small group is 6-10 adults who gather regularly to connect their faith with everyday life, reflect on scripture, get to know Jesus better and make new friends. It’s a sure way to grow deeper in your faith.
Are you looking for a way to grow deeper in faith this Lent? The answer may be found in St. Gregory the Great’s C2C small group communities.
Beginning this Lent, volunteer parish leaders will again launch their Connection to Christ small group communities. Each group is made up of 6-10 adults who meet weekly to connect their faith with everyday life, reflect on scripture and pray for and with one another. They create environments where friendship and God’s Word serve as catalysts to deeper faith.
The sessions are structured with a guide book called With Jesus To The Cross by Evangelical Catholic. Each session includes opening and closing prayers, the scripture passages to be discussed, questions for discussion, ideas for action and prayer prompts to carry you through the week.
The sessions will begin the week of Feb. 8 and last for 6 weeks. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, a remote meeting format will be used at this time. Each leader determines the remote platform of their choice, e.g. Zoom, Google Hangouts. The groups will meet at various days and times each week; all listed on our registration form.
1% of your day is 14 Minutes and 24 Seconds
(For the sake of simplicity, let’s round that up to 15 minutes)
How you spend that time could change your life. Try spending 15 minutes each day in God’s presence – reading, reflecting, responding and resting with his Word. Take the 30 day kick start challenge described here. Unplug for 1% of your day with no dings, no pings, no frills, no multi-tasking. Just you, the Lord, and His Word. It has always been a life-changing practice and it always will be. God’s word is unpredictable in its power.
