Connect(her) is a gathering space for women of all ages and circumstances to deepen our relationship with Christ and one another through small group conversation and prayer. We pick-up our journey together this fall by asking the question “Who am I?”.   

Our guide is the 6-week video series, The Dream of You, featuring pastor, author, and speaker Jo Saxon. Reflecting on stories of God’s people in Scripture and women of our own time, we will take a fresh look at our own story. Invited to turn to the One who knows us intimately and loves us deeply, we will discover how to live more fully into our true child-of-God self.
