Don't Do Life Alone

We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. C-groups are where you can connect with others on a regular basis who share your interests, who are at a similar stage in life, or who have experience in an area where you would like coaching. It’s through doing life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring healing, support and encouragement to our lives. Your c-group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life.


Below is a list of currently active c-groups. These groups rotate throughout the year. When you’ve found one you like, click the Contact Leader button to send an email to the group’s leader. If you’ve participated in a c-group already and would like to start a new one, please fill out the C-Group Launch Form.
