What are Life Groups?
At Christ’s Covenant Church, we believe that God has designed us to need each other in order to “treasure Christ” as we should. In his letter to the Corinthian Church, the apostle Paul writes, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” He goes on to say, “There should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it” (I CORINTHIANS 12.25-27). The fact is, we cannot have this kind of relational closeness with everyone in a large church. Therefore, we have developed a network of Life Groups. CCC Life Groups are devoted to “treasuring Christ” together for the purpose of living out biblical truth through vulnerable, life-transforming community.
How Do Life Groups Function?
Life Groups typically consist of 8-12 members who meet together on a regular basis on various nights of the week. Some groups meet at the church, but most groups meet in homes. Groups are led by a Life Group facilitator to stimulate discussion and real life application of God’s Word. The groups have flexibility to plan social and ministry events, making the time together much more than another church meeting.
How Can I Become Connected to a CCC Life Group?
New groups are formed through our Life Education class, First Steps, which is offered throughout the year. You can join the class at any time and complete any missed classes in the next rotation. It is expected that church members be part of a Life Group, but groups are also open to attendees who would like to become more connected to CCC. If you are interested in joining a Life Group, please contact Pastor Rod Valentine to learn about our next First Steps class.
