Connect Center

The Connect Center is a facility on South Main Street that serves as a host to several of Gilliam's local outreach ministries. Strategically located on the south-side of town, the Connect Center gives the church the opportunity to minister to the Arab community in a different environment other than the typical church setting.

Sometimes you just need a hot meal!

Connect Kitchen exists to serve a FREE hot meal to anyone in need. This ministry takes place at the Connect Center each Thursday night. Meals are served from 6:00-6:30PM. No reservations are needed - just show up and fill up! Our heart for this ministry is to demonstrate the love of Jesus by providing a complete meal to people in our local community.
