Transformation through a loving community.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. — Hebrews 10:24-25"
We believe that life change happens best in small groups. We seek to create spaces where people can feel they belong, where they matter to the others in their group, where they can “do life” by sharing their ups and downs and find the support of loving friends along the way. That’s difficult to experience in a large gathering. Jesus commands us to love one another, but that doesn’t happen unless we spend time together.
A great small group can be a safe place for:
- building relationships,
- mutual “sharpening” as we study the Scriptures together, and
- reaching out to make a difference in our local community.
As we do these three things God begins to change us, a process the Bible calls transformation.
What are the different types of groups offered?
All of our ministries, from children through adults, follow a small group model.
Primarily, we offer general small groups that typically meet in people’s homes—though a few meet at CBC on Sunday mornings. These groups cover a wide range of demographics—young families, parents, empty-nesters, singles, etc. They are the core of our small group ministry and we encourage everyone at CBC to join one.
How do I connect with a small group?
The best way to connect with a small group is to contact the leader first. You can find a group and contact a leader through our Small Group Search Page or by picking up a Small Group Brochure at the Information Center in our lobby.
Do you have childcare for my kids?
Some of our groups meet at the church building on Sunday mornings when kids programming is offered. Other groups choose their own approach to childcare, either by taking care of kids within the group or arranging a babysitter.
