Growth Groups

Connect with Other Christians

lifegroupsWhether you are a newer or an older Christian, wouldn’t it be great to know other Christians who can help you grow in your faith? Other Christians who will listen to your doubts, who will try to understand your problems? Other Christians who model a life of faith and dependence on God?

The moment you began your relationship with Jesus Christ you also began a relationship with other Christians. Now you are part of God’s family.

 

"You are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:26, NLT)

"...it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God's own family." (1 Peter 1:3, LB)

In God’s family there are no orphans. God wants all of His children to live in community with other believers, interrelating with each other and part of something much bigger than themselves.

Central Bible Church offers many times and places to meet and connect with other Christians. Small group meetings are available on Sunday and during the week.

Sunday Classes are open to everyone. They meet at the church from 9:00 to 10:00 AM on (surprise!) Sunday mornings.
