A Place to Get Connected

We were made to connect with others and grow spiritually together. At Sugar Creek, this happens in Connect Groups that meet across our different campuses and even in homes throughout the area. Each Connect Group is centered around studying the Bible in a relational, supportive environment. Here, relationships are formed, friends are made, and a community is created as we learn more about God’s Word and His plan for our lives.

Helping you find a place to belong

Helping you find a place to belong

When you visit a church, you’re really looking for a place to belong. One way this happens is by helping you connect with a small group of people on a regular basis to study the Bible and experience life together. We call these Connect Groups and this is where relationships are formed, friends are made, and community is created. To get a better idea of the ministries we offer to singles and married adults, watch the video below.

Ministry Update:

In person Connect Groups have returned to meeting on campus and in homes. However, online Connect Groups will continue to meet for the forseeable future for those who cannot meet in person at this time.

Young Adults

Your 20’s are a time of exploring that next step in life. You want to get it right and we’re here to help.

Sugar Creek is all about helping marriages go the distance. We want to help empower couples seeking marriage to start off on the right foot. We also want to help married couples rediscover, refresh, and recommit their love to each other. Check out our marriage page for more information about our various marriage ministries.

Sugar Creek Singles is a family where you can know others and be known. We are groups of men and women in our 30s, 40s and 50+ who are actively pursuing a relationship with Jesus by living out God’s purposes for our lives. Whether you’ve never been married, are divorced, are widowed or are a single parent, then this is the place for you.
