It's about Activity. It's about Community. It's about JESUS.
The purpose of Connect Groups is to create opportunities to engage with others through activity, fun and Christ-centered accountability. People are doing "stuff" so why not do it together. Connect Groups provide an invite-able environment to invite friends outside of Martha to join you and grow in community.
Whether it's kayaking down the river, crushing your opponent on the pickleball court, water aerobics or learning how to garden, we want to make connecting with others an easy and meaningful experience while growing together in Christ.
Here's how it works:
- Fill out the registration form completely
- Select the Connect Group of your choice below (as many as you'd like)
- You will be contacted directly by your Connect Group leader.
The following groups are opening September 2020 and will run from 4 - 8 weeks.
Due to COVID restrictions and to promote safety, all groups are currently held outdoors.
Kayaking with Max Whether you're a beginner or someone who navigates the water well, Max Wood is a seasoned kayaker and has a variety of trip options and flexibility. For 3 weekends in September, sign up to join Max on the water.
Pickleball Martha! Want to learn how to play? Or maybe you just need people and a court. Either way, sign up and you can join the new craze that is Middle Georgia Pickleball with fellow Martha Bowman friends.
Water Aerobics Tuesday evenings at Fran Magoni's pool. Enjoy fellowship, laughter and devotion while getting in a workout.
Planting with Mildred Do you have a green thumb? Or just wish you did? Join our very own Master Horticulturist, Mildred Wagner, as she opens up her personal gardens and teaches some of her tried and true tips. Learn what to grow where, how to transplant flowers, what makes a good fertilizer and about a billion things the wise and wonderful Mildred has to share about gardening.
Prayer in the Garden Living in a world of unknowns, chaos and anxiety, God calls us to bring our concerns and requests before him (Phil. 4:6). Join us Tuesday mornings (beginning September 8th) in the Martha Bowman Prayer Garden from 9 - 9:30 for a time of open prayer and reflection. Stay for the full 30 minutes or just drop in, join us as we press into hearing God's heart for His people.
Golfing with Pastor Needing a reason to dust off those clubs? Join Pastor Mark and others on the greens while building community and improving your game (hopefully).
Group Biking Mountain biking, road biking or just casual biking, Scott Schultz is in the know about all things biking. He will coordinate trips, skill levels and rides to accommodate all who are interested.
Local Missions Martha Bowman is involved in various mission opportunities throughout Macon and Middle Georgia. Maybe you've been wanting to get involved and serve but just haven't known how to. Denise Lester is our Volunteer Coordinator and would love to serve alongside you and help you plug in.
