3) Find Your Connection

Connections meet every Sunday morning for Bible study, prayer and fellowship. They operate like a small church family. Many of our members find that their Connection is a place of learning, belonging, service, worship and prayer. Learn more about Connections and which one(s) are a good fit for you.

Learn more about Connections


4) Find Your Small Group

  Prestoncrest is made up of relationship layers, levels of involvement with each other, places where we can become connected with each other. Of course the largest layer is our worship service and the layers become smaller from there. The smaller the group the higher the degree of personal growth and accountability. Prestoncrest has around 40 Small Groups scattered around the metroplex that gather in homes of our members on a weekly basis.  They are smaller than our Sunday morning Worship and our Sunday morning Connections and are thus more intimate places of involvement, growth and ministry. We hope you will do some investigating and find a good Small Group fit.
