Community is at the heart of our church.

 

The mission of the church is to make obedient disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples.  Life groups are small communities in which people can connect with one another and God, where Jesus changes us to be like him and through which mission is carried out.   

You are encouraged to get connected with a Life Group by emailing the contact person listed below for a particular Life Group or just showing up.  Some groups have reached maximum capacity at this time.  Also, during the summer & the month of December, some groups take breaks or meet sporadically. However, you may always email the leader of any group to double check their time and place of meeting.  Please know that you are welcome in the FCCC community, and we want you connected!  Wednesday night groups are on a holiday hiatus until January 9, 2019!

This is an informal gathering of guys seeking to deepen their relationship with Christ and talk openly and honestly about the challenges we all face in trying to become more like Christ. We don’t shy away from hard or controversial topics because Christianity is not simple...it is complicated and challenging, and we need each other’s perspectives if we are to grow and lift each other up. We use both videos and topical studies to advance our understanding of Scripture. New studies starting up for 2018 will focus on Jesus and the things that we face in the culture of today's world.  Come with an open mind and a sense of humor as we laugh and enjoy each other’s company while recharging our spiritual batteries for the battles we face outside the church building's walls.
