Connect Groups Available

Summer 2022

Connect Groups are currently forming for Summer 2022 (May - July)

Connect Groups are a part of our ministry at Christ Our Savior that provide a way for members to connect in study, service, and social areas. Groups run for a few months at a time and are small in size.

Social Groups

    Type of Connect Group: Social Group

    Regularity: At least once per month

The trails and pace should be achievable for those from five to seventy-five (don't expect a vigorous workout). We look forward to Climbing Over Slopes with you!

Service  Groups

  • Animal Shelter

    Type of Connect Group: Service Group

    Regularity: Weekly

    Who: Everyone

    Description: Who loves getting puppy snuggles and wiggly tails? How about cats that rub against your legs or just sit on your lap? Do you want to exercise but hate the gym? If any of these describe you, join our Connect Group at Maury County Animal Services. Volunteers can walk dogs or play with them in the play yard or enrichment room. You can play with the cats in our two cat rooms. Or you can help with the endless amount of odd jobs that need to get done daily. No experience is necessary, just a love for animals. Who knows, you may just find your furever buddy by volunteering with us.  

    Cost: None

    Location: Maury County Animal Shelter (1233 Mapleash Ave, Columbia, TN 38401)

    Upcoming Events:
    Starts on Saturday, 4/30 @ 9 AM until you want to leave. We will meet every Saturday afterwards, so show up any Saturday you would like to.
