Our Services

What are services like?
Our mission at Connection is to connect people with Jesus and the life He offers. That means that we are passionate about showing God’s love by doing our very best to share God’s word through contemporary worship, media, and relevant, inspiring and biblically sound messages in a welcoming and “come-as-you-are” atmosphere.

What is the community like?
We have a diverse congregation with all ages and backgrounds represented. Some in our Connection family come to church wearing slacks and a button-down shirt — others come in flip flops and jeans. In other words, you are invited to “Just Show Up!” What matters most is to be in community with one another, ultimately drawing us all closer to Jesus.

What if I'm not a Christian?
GREAT! We are passionate about sharing God through genuine acts of love, contemporary worship, media, and relevant, inspiring and biblically sound messages in a welcoming and “come-as-you-are” atmosphere.

Alan and Kari  Jones

Alan and Kari Jones

Co-pastors of Connection Community Church, Kari and Alan are ordained United Methodist Elders who pastored individually before hearing the call to plant a church in Middletown and lead the congregation together. They deliver the sermon in a back-and-forth style that complements the contemporary and dynamic worship. Prior to entering the ministry, Kari worked as a registered nurse in critical care and hospice, and Alan taught high school English for four years followed by 14 years as an agent and sales manager in the insurance field. Their family includes daughter Erin and her husband, Kyle, daughter Megan and her husband, Ted, daughter Devon and her husband, TC, and son Turner. Grandchildren Isabella, Jacob, and Adaline bring them lots of joy! In their spare time, hanging out with family ranks first. After that, Kari enjoys the beach and reading and Alan watches the Phillies and movies. Kari and Alan are not afraid to go outside the normal church boundaries and are passionate about connecting people with Jesus and the life He offers.
