Join a Dgroup to engage with The Common Rule during our Simplicity sermon series! (September 5 - October 31)


During September and October we will be focusing on simple habits that we can use in our daily lives to help us abide more fully in Christ and extend His love to others. The Common Rule will be used as a companion text for the series, and we are starting up some Dgroups (aka discipleship groups) who will walk through the book's habits together. We would love to have you take this journey with us! Let us know that you're interested, and we will connect you with a group! Sign up for a Common Rule Dgroup.

 

Being and making disciples of Jesus Christ is our mission here at CCC.

Rooted in the study of Scripture and following the example of Jesus and the Apostles, we encourage disciple making as the active, intentional, and relational ministry of growing as a disciple while also making new disciples.  It is by this process that the Church has survived 2,000 years and is found among every nation, tribe, and language.  Our goals are to help you grow as a disciple, and to equip you to disciple other followers of Christ. 

Discipleship happens in a group.

We become better disciples and disciple makers when we share life with others. Small groups are the vehicle for life-giving relationships built on Christ Himself. For that reason, we consider CCC to be a church OF small groups, where participants can grow together and encourage one another in the faith. We gather together to be known, and to be honest and held accountable by one another.

 

Discipleship Experience (DX) is a series of studies focused on equipping believers as disciples who then make disciples. Each DX series focuses on five areas: Disciple Making, Bible, Theology, Habits, and Relationships. Our desire is that each disciple participating in a DX series can then take a new disciple through the same material. We are developing future DX series (DX2, DX3, etc.) to help believers dig even deeper into the riches of following Christ, and to equip our future elders, teachers, and disciplers, as they serve the Body of Christ.

 We have several group types that exist to accomplish specific goals for their members. However, they all share one common goal: to follow Jesus the best they can, together.

 

Our study groups help you learn the Bible's books and themes, and how to better understand and apply what you read. Some groups offer an online option via Zoom.

Life Groups meet for fellowship, encouragement, study, and "doing life together." Our Life Groups are what most folks think of when they hear "small groups."

A Dgroup consists of a discipler and 1-4 disciples. The group works through the Real-Life Discipleship Training Manual (or other DX1 material), together, and may decide to study other components of the DX1 curriculum. Disciples focus upon becoming better disciples of Christ, under the guidance and encouragement of their discipler. Our goal is that the disciples will then become disciplers to others, as modeled by Jesus and His own disciples.

Support groups help participants cope with and learn more about life challenges, in a safe, confidential atmosphere. Our support groups are administered through Community Downtown, our counseling center. Visit this page for more information about our current groups.
