The CCC community is dedicated to following Jesus at every age. Along with serving with our skills, sharing our resources to support ministry, and gathering as the worshipping community, we commit ourselves to the continual transformation of the Holy Spirit as disciples of Jesus Christ.
What might modern discipleship look like? Based on The Good and Beautiful Series from James Bryan Smith, this 18-month pastor-led journey takes place in three parts and focuses on transforming our narratives about God, ourselves, and the world so that our thoughts, motives, and actions match God's will and design.
As we apprentice Jesus, we spend time in study on our own and in community; practice "soul training" exercises weekly to help us experience the concepts we're learning; and meet together regularly as we allow the Spirit to guide us into a new way of being.
Groups usually start in the fall or winter.
As part of our church renewal, we have joined with other faith communities around the world to go through the Faithwalking journey.
"Faithwalking is a spiritual formation process where people are increasingly following the way of Jesus, experiencing ongoing transformation, and developing effective practices for missional living: serving the poor, the marginalized, and those in need; working for the common good; and restoring individuals, social systems, communities, and nations to God’s intended design."
Members meet in pastor-facilitated groups every other week for 26 weeks. Inbtween group meetings, each participant has weekly coaching calls and assignments to help them reflect, practice, and grow in their capacity to be fully human, fully alive, and fully faithful.
Throughout the year (with a break over the summer) men gather for breakfast on the first Saturday at 8 AM to listen to a guest speaker and conversation with one another. Women do similarly on the third Saturday of the month at 9 AM. Each meet at ABC Country Restaurant North.
