Group Life at C3

At Columbia Community Church (C3), we believe that life is best done together!

Being a part of a group is a great complement to our large gatherings.

What is Group Life?

It’s about 10-15 people who meet together each week in a convenient Tri-Cities location to learn about the Bible, grow, and have fun.

There are so many great reasons to join a group!

  • Weekly connection in the Word will help you grow in your faith
  • Prayer support through tough times
  • Opportunities to participate in outreach with your group
  • New friends to say ‘hi’ to on Sundays & the rest of the week
  • Celebration of Communion together!
  • Fun with others going though the same thing as you are

Communion is a great opportunity for you group to worship together.

When Can You Join a Group?

You can join a group anytime!  So don't worry about being BRAND NEW, lots of us are new right along with you.

We have three kinds of Groups:

  • Turbo Groups meet for 4-6 weeks on a focused topic.
  • Quarterly Groups meet for 8-9 weeks.
  • Extended Groups meet for 2 to 4 quarters.  They are open to welcoming new people each quarter and take at least a 2-week break between quarters.

There is 4-week "open enrollment" time, typically in August, January, March & June.   We encourage members to join during this time because the majority of our groups begin new studies right after open enrollment periods. 

Want to join between enrollment periods?  No problem!  Several of our groups except members ANY TIME (especially those that center discussions around the Sunday messages).  Our website is constantly being updated, so the groups you see listed are currently accepting new members.

 

Group Types

All C3 Groups interact and grow through practical application of the Bible. All groups serve to equip you to become a better follower of Jesus Christ!  You'll find that each group fits one of 4 general group 'types.'

Learning Groups
