Connect Groups

Connect Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us for connection with others and through those connections, we experience the full life He intends for us. We believe that as we can get real with people in safe environments, God uses those relationships to bring freedom in our life. (James 5:16) Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Connect Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Our Connect Groups follow a semester schedule: Two twelve week semesters in spring & fall, as well as 1 shorter semester in summer. Groups meet weekly during those times.

Our 4 week Summer Connect semester will run from June 23 to July 14 – see directory below for all of our Summer Groups!

C3 Kids FAQ

Will I need to feed my child dinner before the conference begins each night?

Yes.  We will provide snacks, waters, and frozen treats each night.

 

What should my child wear?

The kids will be moving actively during the conference.  We recommend they wear their team t-shirt (distributed the first night of conference), shorts, and sneakers.  We will be outside at the end of the night, so please be sure to spray your children with bug spray beforehand.

 

Where do I check in my child?

Check in will open each night on the patio during the pre-party.  Once the doors have been opened, you will escort your child to the upstairs C3 Kids welcome desk and drop your child off with a C3 Kids Team member.

 

Where do I pick up my child?

Pick up will begin at the end of service each night.  Pick up will occur in the outdoor playground area, located to the right of the building (opposite C3 Fitness).
