These groups are Connection’s way of doing small groups. We have designed our Community Groups to foster authentic community. We believe that spiritual growth happens best in small communities of believers who are devoted to encouraging one another, praying for one another, and discussing Biblical truth together. 

Our hope and prayer is that each person that calls C3 home will find authentic community via a Community Group. We truly believe that the time you invest in a Community Group will help you grow deeper in your relationship with God and with your brothers and sisters in the church. 

Please check out our groups below and feel free to “test drive” a few. Have questions about a group? Need some help finding the right group for you? Or…..want to get involved in hosting/facilitating a group yourself? That is great! You can get in touch with our groups coordinator right here!

Covid-19 Guidance – Our groups typically meet in home settings. Therefore, varying levels of covid precautions are observed. See the group descriptions below to get a feel for meeting expectations and find a group that fits your personal comfort levels. As always, if you aren’t feeling well or have been in close contact with someone that has recently tested positive for covid-19 then let your group facilitator know and take a break from your group to reduce risk of exposure to others. They’ll surely miss you and look forward to your return.

The CDC has some excellent guidance for small gatherings here. Check it out and decide what is right for you and your family.

Have you ever found yourself worrying about your finances, or health, or your children, or your marriage, or possibly an ongoing sin? Maybe, it has gone beyond worry to anxiety, or stress, or maybe even distress and discouragement and hopelessness. 

Have you ever been angry with God because He doesn’t seem to be answering your prayers and you are disappointed because the Christian life has become much more frustrating and difficult than you thought, and you are contemplating giving it all up and like the Israelites thinking that maybe it would be better to go back to Egypt? Or maybe you’ve just been giving some thought to throwing your Bible up on a shelf, and sleeping in on Sunday mornings.

There have been many times in my Christian life when these fleshly thoughts have come to mind, and over the years, the Lord has brought me into contact with many frustrated, burned out, and disappointed Christians as well. People who like myself, have tried to live the kind of Christ-life that the Bible teaches, but they’ve repeatedly failed and have given up hope that they will ever be that Christ-like example that we see in the Scriptures.

Obviously, God doesn’t want us to live frustrated and hopeless lives. So, what do we do? Or better yet, what has God done to set us free from frustration and discouragement and anxiety and fear and hopelessness? The answer to this question is found, like every true and right answer to life’s problems, in the Scriptures.

Bring your hungry heart and we will dig and search through the Scriptures and, Lord willing, discover His answer for man’s dilemma. 😊
