Small groups are an essential part of building community. By participating in small groups, AHCC members can develop deep relationships with one another and grow closer to God through spiritual growth and friendship. Small groups come in many shapes, a variety of sizes, and serve a variety of interests. One of the many ways to grow in engagement is through participation in small groups.
Groups typically have anywhere from four to twelve members and meet regularly as determined by the members of the group. Groups can form around interest in a specific topic or theme like Bible study or social justice; activities or interests such as quilting, creating Prayer Shawls, hiking, or film discussion; life issues or identities such as retirement, living with grief, or caring for an aging parent; or can be a group of people interested in speaking with others on a regular basis about wide-ranging topics that arise organically.
We are always open to hearing new ideas for Small Groups! If you are looking to connect with a small group or start a new one, please reach out to the church office at 860.525.5696.
AHCC’s Young Adult Group meets monthly at a fun venue in Hartford as well as for special gatherings and social events.
Please contact Pastor Jordan Rebholz for more information.
One of the oldest and most active groups at AHCC is the Women’s Spirituality & Fellowship Group! This group is a community of women who gather to laugh, talk, pray, and share.
In addition to special events and gatherings for Advent and Lent, there are two prayer groups: one on Tuesday mornings at 10am and one on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm.
The AHCC Men’s Fellowship meets each month to laugh a lot, talk about almost anything except politics, have a great breakfast, and discuss the Bible passages that will be used in the next day’s service. There is no registration necessary to join and we welcome AHCC members and non-members alike.
For more information, please email Frank Virnelli.
The Hill Quilters meet regularly to design and lovingly create quilts that are donated to area agencies, new neighbors, or as gifts for other special occasions. The Quilters have done many projects around the church, including a beautiful set of paraments for the sanctuary.
