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.

Here at C3 we believe YOU CAN’T DO LIFE ALONE!
God’s design for you is to connect.

Summer Turbo Group Enrollment

New Groups are being added throughout the summer.

Some groups are designed for specific gender or age or stage of life.

What is Group Life?

It’s about 15-17 people (varies by group) from C3 that meet together each week in a convenient Tri-Cities to learn about the Bible, Grow, and have fun.

There are so many great reasons to join a group this semester!

  • 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

This is a great opportunity for your group to worship and celebrate communion together.

Group Types

All C3 Groups interact and grow through a practical application of the Bible. There are four general categories of groups you'll find any given semester. All groups serve to equip you to become a better follower of Jesus Christ.

Learning Groups

Connect with people who want to learn more! From first-time believers to "veteran's," we offer DVD and other curriculum to explore relevant topics or specific parts of the Bible.  many groups choose to go deeper into our Sunday messages by using Message Notes for discussion. Learning groups may have homework.

Activity Groups

Connect around fun activities and recreation! These groups use message notes or short devotionals for spiritual growth. No homework.

Outreach Groups

Plan and execute hands on serving in the community.

Healing Groups

Participate in a conversation that leads to restoration and hope.  Work through patterns of behavior we would like to change.

When Do the Groups Start?

Groups are formed per semester and there are four semester during the year.  Each semester, every group at C3 experiences an on-ramp that we call OPEN ENROLLMENT. So don’t worry about being BRAND NEW – some if not all of the folks in your group are new too! If we are currently in the middle of a semester, you will only have to wait a short time, 3-7 weeks, before the next Open Enrollment begins.


  • Fall Semester enrollment: September
  • Winter Semester enrollment: January
  • Spring Semester enrollment: March 
  • Turbo Groups - During the summer, we offer a smaller number of activities and learning groups in a more casual atmosphere. New groups are added throughout the summer. You can now register for those currently available.
Group Life Starting Point

Our next Starting Point group will meet Sundays at 9:50am, July 9 through August 27.  Look for it in the Group Finder!

Starting Point

Explore Faith & Experience Community

Starting Point is designed for:

Those who are curious about God, Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity
Those who have just begun a relationship with Jesus Christ
Those who have some church experience but have been away for a while.

What about child care?

We want to make Group Life as easy as possible for couples and single parents to attend. That is why Columbia provides a reimbursement option for your childcare expenses (for children under the age of 13). You pay your babysitter, and our church will pay you back a flat rate per child. We hope childcare reimbursement makes your Group Life experience possible and more enjoyable.
