Connection Pointe Christian Church

Physical Service Option

While we never stopped gathering in spirit, our physical doors are open for those who desire to return to campus. We cannot emphasize enough, that there is no pressure to join in-person and that our primary focus remains online. Whether you join us in-person or online, here are some details to help you decide what's best for you and your loved ones.
