cGroups

Authentic relationship and lasting life change happens in circles not in rows.

The weekend services are inspiring, but they can’t entirely fill our need to belong. That’s where a cGroup, Cornerstone's small group program, comes in. A cGroup is three or more people who meet together on a consistent basis. In a cGroup, people process the issues and challenges of life in the context of God’s Word. It’s a place where you can laugh, make new friends, grow in your faith, and last, but not least, have fun! cGroups are an essential part of our ministry, because relationships are where lasting growth takes place.


Cornerstone offers a variety of cGroups, meeting at a variety of days, times, and places. Whether you’re new to the cGroup thing, or a veteran, there’s a group ready to welcome you. We have groups for students, men, women, couples, and mixed groups.


Registration for Spring 2018 cGroups is happening online NOW!
