COMMUNITY Groups are small groups of people walking through life together, meeting weekly in homes, celebrating the joys and mourning the sorrows of everyday life. For a listing of CCC’s COMMUNITY Groups, click HERE!
Do you ever feel lonely?
Do you ever feel like there is more to life?
A COMMUNITY Group is a group of relationships built on trust and encouragement, following the example of Christ. Life is messy, and all of us are wounded. Living with wounded people pushes us to discover the presence of God in the midst of the woundedness.
…is the incredible gift of friendship that moves us to an entirely new level of love and compassion. “To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value, to say to them through our attitude: ‘You are beautiful. You are important. I trust you. You can trust yourself.’ To love someone is to reveal to them their capacities for life.” (Jean Vanier, Brokenness to Community, p. 16)
…is a place of pain as well as joy. In community we sacrifice the false security that comes with living alone, and that hurts. Yet nobody knows how to celebrate like a COMMUNITY group, and sometimes we don’t know how desperate we are for somebody to celebrate who we are until it actually happens.
…lives for the benefit of the members, and it also lives for the benefit of those who are still alone. As the community grows to wholeness it will look beyond itself to others in the neighborhood, the country, and the world. Don’t believe that this is possible? Or even more tragic, don’t believe it could happen to you? We used to believe that, too. And then it happened.
Check out the Community Group listing to find one that works for you. Please note that Junior and High School students and College students have age specific Community Groups. Otherwise, they are inter-generational. Feel free to contact any of the community group leaders if you have any further questions about CG’s and they’ll help you get connected!
