Jesus shows us in His ministry that He was not focused on the crowds. He frequently left large groups and went away to be with a smaller group to pray, and study (see Luke 9:16-18). This practice built up the disciples that started His church. Here at CCLC we want to follow His example, so we provide multiple ways you can do that because we all learn differently. Find the group that works for you and lock in to the life giving community that can be found in each and every one of these smaller groups of our church body.
Our E3 Groups ministry is the reflection and extension of what we exist for as a church. Jesus dedicated so much time in His ministry to three areas, COMMUNING with the Father, SERVING those around Him, and FELLOWSHIP with those he loved. Each of our E3 groups are following that example. We Commune by studying the word, praying, and listening to what He needs us to do. Each group serves the community around them at least once a month by giving what we have when others need it. Finally we fellowship or as we like to say “throw a party for Jesus” and invite those around us to see the community we are forming here through Jesus.
Every Thursday morning at 8:00am a group of men meet in the fellowship hall of our church building for a time of study and prayer. You will be presented with a thought provoking question followed by a discussion and leave filled with the love that we have for the people of our communities. Feel free to join any time!
Every Thursday at 1:00pm a group of Women gather in the fellowship hall of our church building to study the Word of God, discuss its meaning for their lives, and then lift up prayers for those who need their Heavenly Father in our community. Feel free to join in any time!
