Community Groups

We believe that becoming mature disciples of Christ involves community.

Some of our Community Groups meeting on Sunday mornings, and others meet in homes during the week.

Below are the Community Group options we offer at CCC.

  • DISCOVER Christ Community

    The initial phase of any relationship is discovery. Before you do anything, you probably want to learn who someone is, what they like, and what they believe. It's no different with a church, but it can be more challenging. DISCOVER Christ Community is designed to help. For most, it is your first step in getting to know us. For some, it is the next step in getting to know us better. It also helps us get to know you. You'll get a chance to hear from our Senior Pastor, Josiah Jones, as well as other staff and elders about important topics like: what it means to follow Jesus, the vital role of the church in our relationship with Christ, our vision, mission, what  we believe, and how to get connected and serve at Christ Community, among other things. And most importantly, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. We invite you to come DISCOVER Christ Community. Our next session will begin October 7, 2018.

    Join us as we examine the ancient book of Job and wrestle with the big questions of life. Like Job, we encounter pain and loss and have difficulties in our personal relationships and wonder about our place before God in the midst of it all. We will alternate weeks looking at the book of Job in detail and then step back and look at the larger questions and how we can answer them in our lives. Through study we aim to work God's word into our hearts and through fellowship and prayer we hope to love and support each other.
