Wednesday Community Groups

6:00-7:30 (7th-12th Grade)

Community Groups (C-Groups) are designed to help foster spiritual growth and develop community between out students and their adult leaders. Every grade is divided into groups of 8-10 students and led by an amazing team of adult small group leaders committed to making the middle/high school journey a little easier! The adults leading are helping the students develop a passion for following Christ, guiding each other to hold one another accountable and teach them all to sincerely love one another as God loves us all!

You can sign your student up at any point during the semester to be apart of the C-Group Community. We will make sure every student gets plugged into a group that fits their desire to grow and learn about Christ. 

  • 7th-12th Grade

High School & Middle School Community Groups will meet on campus @ the CLC every Wednesday with their adult small group leaders.
