Connect Groups


At Sonrise, people connect with others through our Connect Groups which meet in homes and other locations during the week. In a Connect Group, you can experience fun and engaging discussions, Bible and book studies, prayer groups, and activity clubs where friendships grow and everyone can be personally supported and built up. 

Take a look below to learn more about each of the Connect Groups that are currently meeting virtually & in-person while maintaining social distancing. Then, head to the Group Finder to see what groups work with your schedule. 


For more information on joining a connect group you see below, or hosting and leading a new Connect Group, please email -

“Jesus said, ‘According to your faith let it be done to you’ (Matthew 9:29 NIV). That’s an amazing statement. Jesus is saying that you get to choose how much God blesses your life. You get to choose how much God uses you in his plan for the world. How? ‘According to your faith it will be done to you.’ Faith is the key to fulfilling God’s will in your life.” –Rick Warren
Now is the time to choose faith over fear and live with more freedom, joy, and impact. As Ephesians 3:12 says, “Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence” (NLT).
Discover how you can have daring faith in these uncertain times and make a difference for Christ through Pastor Rick Warren’s Daring Faith 6-session study.
The Daring Faith Workbook includes study guides for all six personal or small group lessons and a devotion for each day. You’ll learn to:
  • Expect the best from God each day
  • Build a bold and unshakable life of faith
  • Stretch your imagination further
  • Take initiative
  • Face your fears
  • Believe while you're waiting
Break free from fear and discover what it means to grow a bolder, more confident faith that gives you the resilience to keep going regardless of the circumstances. Let the world see your daring faith today!
This 6-week study starts on Thursday, May 27th at 6:00PM. Alternating weeks on Zoom for those that are unable to participate in person. To join us on Zoom, please contact Kelly at
