God never intended for our spiritual journeys to be solo pursuits. He created us for community, and in Christ, we belong together. Our Connect Groups—or C-Groups as we call them—are about sharing C together, building authentic relationships, growing in faith and serving in ministry together.


Within each C-Group, you will find opportunities to connect with God and people through:

  • Studying God’s word together.
  • Sharing life with others through conversation and discussion.
  • Praying for and with each other.
  • Serving others together.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey—just beginning to explore faith or have been Fully Devoted to Jesus for years—joining a C-Group is the best thing you can do to grow in your relationship with Christ. We have C-Groups that meet both on and off campus, weekly or monthly, and in homes, restaurants or at church. Check out the opportunities below.

Sunday Morning C-Groups

Friendship Class

Location: Room 221


In John 15:15, Jesus said to His disciples: “…I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from My Father I have made known to you.”


The Friendship Life members are a group of friends who love the Lord and who strive to strengthen one another with prayer, love, fellowship and encouragement. Jon Peters, Donna Dukett and Bruce Burdick alternate leading this group each week. David C. Cook Publishing House’s “Bible-In-Life” materials are used to guide our studies of God’s Word. Each week we learn Biblical principles that empower our daily living. You will find a warm and friendly welcome here! So if you want some true friends, come join us!



Choosing Christ Class

Meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 am periodically throughout the year or by request


This discussion-based, eight-week class is intended for those who are contemplating giving their life to Christ and those who want to learn how to lead others to Jesus—an experience in why and how we should trust Christ with our lives. Church attendance, keeping the Commandments, taking communion or good living—none of this will lead us to Heaven. Salvation comes only through our trust in a person—Jesus Christ. Choosing Christ will give you the opportunity to explore what Scripture says about living and leading people into a growing relationship with Christ. As the gospel of John says about the Bible: “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (20:31).

Loyal Bereans

Location: Room 203

This class is studying “God’s Unlikely Path to Success”, a character study of both Old and New Testament individuals whom God used in spite of their shortcomings. Currently we are examining the life of Samson from Judges 13 – 16. Many of our subjects show up in the “Faith Hall of Fame” from Hebrews chapter 11, and we examine how they got there. Life applications are always intertwined. This is a class that will revive your enthusiasm about being a Christian. This class is for singles and married persons of all ages.

Lead a C-Group

Do you want to see your closest friends grow in their faith as you do life together? If you are a member of MC3 Church and are willing to help us create an environment for people to grow and become Fully Devoted to Jesus, we’d love to help you start your own C-Group. Group leaders have four primary responsibilities:

  1. Pray for group members once a day.
  2. Facilitate group discussions once a week.
  3. Meet with your Group Coach once a month.
  4. Disciple and recommend new leaders for future C-Groups.


Yes, I want to lead a C-Group.
