Small Groups

Involvement in a small group can make the difference between "attending church" and becoming a part of the Church Community. Small Groups at Christ Church help connect people through encouragement, study, serving, and caring for one another in times of suffering and celebration. Small Groups are where meaningful friendships are formed; where we grow in love for God and others. We explore the Bible, ask tough questions, and gain insight from group members.  

Here at Christ Church we have set up groups according to our vision statement: Compassionate - Christian - Community

C1 are Compassionate Outreach groups. These include out local and global outreach ministries. (click here for a list of local outreach groups; click here for global outreach information)

C2 are Christian Growth groups. These include Bible studies and Support Groups.

C3 are Community Connection Groups. These include community groups and affinity groups.

C4 are Prayer groups.
