Western Hills Church Love. Live. Serve. Multiply.

Western Hills Church
Fall Connect Groups are Quickly Approaching!

Why Connect Groups?

Connect Groups are proving to be such great way for adults at Western Hills to get to know other people and build authentic relationships.

If you have had a small group experience, you know how important and wonderful they can be. As important as being in a small group is, the reality is that most churches make it super difficult for new people to get placed into one.

So… We at Western Hills have decided to focus on Connect Groups!

With our Connect Groups, we are able to connect with more people, different people. We’re able to experience new topics, new teachers, new friends!

Sign up at the Welcome Desk or complete the Registration Form below.

Through Connect Groups, we will learn, serve, and have lots of fun. More importantly, you’ll gain a family of friends that will love you, encourage you, and challenge you as you learn to live the life that God intended…


Here are your options for Fall 2017!


General Groups:

Becoming an Apprentice of Jesus

Expectations will be high for this study. It is for those who are willing to commit the time. You will be asked to read a chapter in the book and engage in a soul training exercise from the book each week. This will be Session 1. Session 2 & 3 will take place starting Jan. 7 & May 6!

How To Read The Bible For All It Is Worth
Grant & Amy English
Sundays / 6-7:30 pm / Starts Sept 10
3523 SW Ashworth Ct (English House)

We all know it’s important to read the Bible but where do you start? It’s hard to understand, and some of it doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Bible was meant to be read and understood by everyone. With just a few insights, you could gain a much deeper understanding of the Scriptures and start applying it better to your life. We’ll talk about translations, genres, and ancient culture in a way that will make sense of much of the Bible. No childcare. Cost is $12 for a book.
