Connect groups exist to fulfill the vision of Destination Church by connecting people to other Christians through everyday life, which ultimately builds disciples and facilitates community.  God didn’t call us to live life alone: because of this, we believe in doing life in small group settings. Connect groups meet weekly in a variety of locations on various days and times. 
  • Sermon-Based Group: Do you feel the need to dive deeper into the weekly sermon? Do you desire to connect with others since you realize it is better to do life together? This Connect Group strives to bridge the connection between the Word of God and its application in your daily life.  
    • Dewayne & Shameka Ainsworth (Tuesday Evening 6 PM/ Martinsburg WV)
  • Men’s Breakfast Group: Start your weekend off with the fellas! Men of all ages are invited for breakfast and connection each week as they talk about life, purpose, and calling.
    • Deacon Michael Angstadt (Saturday Morning 10 AM/ Martinsburg WV, Various Locations)
  • Men’s & Women’s Lunch Group: Don’t have plans for the weekend? Why not join others for lunch?! Men and women of all ages are invited to come together once a month at various local restaurants for connection, food, and fun. 
    • Jennifer Matheson (2nd Saturday of each month 12 Noon/ Charles Town WV, Various Locations)
  • Women’s Book Study Groups: Do you love to read and are longing to discuss the interesting aspects of the books you read? This Connect Group of women believers seek to learn more about God and His Word through the journey of the following books:
    • Denise Avi-Lev (Monday Evening 7 PM/ Frederick, MD) “Defiant Joy” by Candace Payne. Joy is closer than you think because God is better than you may believe! Dispel the myths that joy is frivolous, immature, or reserved for a few select “happy” people, and open your heart to receive the freedom and joy God created you to live in every circumstance.
    • Alice Johns (Monday Evening 7 PM/ Charles Town, WV) “Twelve Women of the Bible: Life-Changing Stories for Women Today” by Lisa Terkeurst. You’ll discover lessons from each of these women that will help you persevere through the circumstances you are facing today. Learn how to apply biblical lessons to your own modern-day struggles, live through  failures as well as successes, draw near to God in a world filled with trials, find lasting contentment, and overcome rejection and insecurity.
    • Carol Goolsby (Wednesday Evening 7 PM/ Martinsburg, WV) “The Perfect You” by Dr. Caroline Leaf. When God created the blueprint for the universe, you were already part of the plan.  Science and Scripture show you’re unique, brilliantly designed, intelligent individual who fills a role no one else can.  So the more you become, the more fulfilling and impactful your life will be. 
      • Anita Whiting (Saturday 10 AM/ Frederick, MD) “Encouraging One Another” by Nicole Johnson. This journey will encourage women with the issues that we wrestle with today, such as friendship, encouragement, managing moods, finding contentment, and how to live out your faith.
  • Women’s Fitness Group: God made us to be victorious in all areas of our lives: spirit, soul, and body. Join this group of women for a 30-minute workout each week and study of the book “Made to Crave” by Lisa Terkeurst. Together, ladies will share their health journey and recipes for the group to enjoy.
