Our small groups are easily the best way to build relationships and develop true friendships at RCC. We believe that one of the central ways we grow as disciples of Jesus is by having intentional relationships with other Christians and joining them on mission in community. Our small groups are the ideal place for that. Not only will you be encouraged to live out the truths in scripture, you’ll encourage others to do the same; all while engaging in the mission of sharing the gospel in creative and exciting ways together as a community.
Most of our groups begin their time together by sharing a meal or snacks and then move into a time of discussion centered around the passage of Scripture we looked at on Sunday. They will also spend time sharing their current struggles and victories and praying for one another.
All of our groups are open and eager for new folks to join. Below is a list of groups that are available right now, and there is a form at the bottom of this page if you would like us to contact you with more information about a particular group.
