What are cGroups and why do we do them?

cGroups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why cGroups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Participate in a cGroup

Watch your faith grow through investing in relationships with people who want to learn and grow with you. No matter who you are, where you come from, what stage of life you’re in, or what your interests are, there’s a group for you. Join a cGroup and experience real relationships that will grow your faith.

Lead a cGroup

Leading a cGroup isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your cGroup successful through leadership training and an online directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one session at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a cGroup leader you get to play an important role in that process.
