REALMEN is a vision geared for guys who call Columbia Community Church home. We identify with men that experience a variety of roles along their life journey—husbands, sons, and fathers, workers and career builders and most importantly faith leaders.
Men who want to do life and do it well need to know how best to manage and experience real life and how to prioritize the ever increasing responsibilities and demands placed on them.
C3’s Men development strategy:
The Pathway For Men
Social groups for the purpose of connecting and making friendships with other men.
Healing groups for the purpose of hope, purity, and right identity.
Study groups that dive into a specific area of theology or subject matter that will help a man grow
Leadership groups that focus on leading others to lead others and to influence the world around them.
All C3 Groups interact and grow through a practical application of the Bible. There are four general categories of groups you'll find at C3. All groups serve to equip you to become a better follower of Jesus Christ.
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.
Connect around fun activities and recreation! These groups use message notes or short devotionals for spiritual growth. No homework.
Plan and execute hands-on serving in the community.
Participate in a conversation that leads to restoration and hope. Work through patterns of behavior we would like to change.
How long do groups meet?
- 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.
