C-Groups

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.

Pursuing Peace is a six-week discussion group using the book "Peaceful on Purpose" by Joel Osteen. Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. God has given us the power to remain calm, strong, and confident in every situation and season of our life.

Together we will discuss and learn how-to live-in peace, to stay positive and remain hopeful.
Group Requirement: Purchase the book "Peaceful on Purpose" by Joel Osteen, ISBN 978-1-4555-3439-5 on Amazon.com or other online retailers for around $12.

No More Hiding Getting to the REAL ME C-Group
Leader: LaVerne Tanner

Sometimes in life we get lost in discovering who we really are because we take on so many roles. We are husbands and wives, daughters and sons, parents, caregivers, coworkers, friends and more. We are multitaskers in so many areas of life. We often think of others, but God never left us out of the equation.
I have a question for you that I want you to think about…… Who Are You Really? What do you like? What are your best attributes? What do you add to this earth? WHO ARE YOU REALLY?

Come Join this CGroup and find out. No More Hiding come and discover the REAL you.

Leader: Nina Bacote

The "Stress Free" Connect Group will start the Spring Semester on Tuesday, February 21, 2023. We will meet on Zoom weekly from 7PM - 8PM EST.

Everyone has an estate whether large or small. Your estate consists of everything you own: your car, home, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, and personal possessions. Every estate has one thing in common; you cannot take it with you when you transition.

This semester the Stress Free Connect Group will discuss Estate Planning and Getting Our Affairs in Order so that our loved ones can handle our estate with the least amount of stress.

Don't put it off any longer, join us as we discuss this important topic and learn how to get our affairs in order, create a will and create our final wishes. Do it for your love ones you will leave behind!

Hope you can join us.

The Leadership Challenge

Leadership crosses all sectors of our lives, whether we are leading ourselves, leading a household; leading a group activity; leading a team; a community leader, a business leader or leading within an organization.

In this Virtual Connect Group, we will explore the 5 Shared Patterns of Effective Leadership.
