Connect is all about helping people to connect with God through Jesus, and to connect with God’s people through Jesus. It’s the first step along our Connect-Grow-Serve pathway, the path of following Jesus together. We want people to connect with God through Jesus, to grow as we follow Jesus together, and to serve God from the heart in a way that reflects the love of Jesus.
The heart of Grow ministry at Para Hills Church is our Growth Groups. Our Growth Groups are where we experience the closeness of our relationships in Jesus, loving, caring for and supporting one another at Para Hills. Growth Groups are where we learn what it means to follow Jesus together, and experience the life shaping power of God as we read and study the Bible together.
Serve is our response to God’s great gift of salvation through Jesus, and an important step along our Connect-Grow-Serve pathway. As we serve God together, we grow in our relationship with Him, and in our relationships with one another. We try to help one another to serve in a way that considers both the needs of the individual person serving, and the needs of our church family.
