Community Groups

We desire to see people love Jesus, love and serve each other and in turn love and serve our community, the city, and world TOGETHER for the sake of the gospel. These Community Groups are smaller expressions of our larger congregation in order to strategically build relationships that shepherd needs and biblically equip our adults to missionally serve neighborhoods, our city, and the world.

A list of our groups can be viewed via the button below.

Missions

At Christ Community, we believe that as followers of Jesus Christ we are all missionaries. We view the mission of the church not as something that God has only called vocational missionaries to do across the globe but also as something that God has called each of us to pursue right here in Houston. Because of this, we seek and encourage one another to….

  • INDIVIDUALLY reach our NEIGHBORS as missionaries with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • COLLECTIVELY we come together in our missional COMMUNITY GROUPS around Houston for the purpose of reaching our different Houston neighborhoods for Christ together.
  • GLOBALLY Christ Community SUPPORTS & PARTNERS with ministries that reach people with the gospel.

Equip Marriage: Looking at the book Cherish by Gary Thomas ~  Sundays at 5pm Begins Sept 13

Millions of couples getting married have pledged to “love and to cherish”, until death do us part.” Most of us understand and get the love part… but what does it mean to cherish our spouse? Why do we say it once at the wedding and then rarely even mention it again?

In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on personal stories and teachings from the Bible to show how cherishing can have a powerful effect on marriage. Learning to truly cherish each other turns marriage from an obligation into a delight. It lifts marriage above a commitment to a precious priority. Cherish is the melody that makes a marriage sing.

Many couples today survive by gritting their teeth and holding on. Or they find themselves just “going through the motions” in their relationship. But cherishing our spouse can reverse the pattern. Cherishing can breathe light, hope, and new life into a marriage- even one marred by neglect and disrespect.

Christ Community Church Kids Ministry (C3k) has three main priorities in developing children into followers of Christ. We desire to build a ministry that is safe, enjoyable, and Biblical. The safety of our children is a high priority in all areas of the ministry. We also work hard to make the ministry enjoyable as we want our children to develop a love for the church. Most importantly, all that we do and teach is based on the truth of the Bible. We recognize that God reveals His character through His Word and His grace transforms children into followers of Jesus. We have Sunday morning classes for Children ages Infant up to 5th Grade that is led primarily by Christ Community Church volunteers. C3 Kids utilizes Children Desiring God and Gospel Project curriculums which aim to build a foundation of doctrine and truth in these precious young lives.

C3 Students

We strive to create a cultured nurturing environment through the love of Christ for all our students.

Weekly Gatherings

Every Sunday night we come together from 5:00-6:30 to spend time in worship, teaching, and small groups. We try to make it a fun and welcoming environment for students, as well as one that will encourage and challenge them in their faith. Each small group is led by a young adult leader.

Serving Together

Throughout the semester we have several opportunities to serve in the student ministry. We try to do a mix of serving “outside” the church, as well as serving the church. We want our students to see that they have a role to play in serving God in the world and in the local body. If you want to serve in our C3Kids Ministry on Sunday morning.

Core Values

As a Student Ministry we maintain the same 3 core values as the Church body. We don’t see a need to stray from these as they are essential to the church and the individual.

1. THE WORD

The Scriptures will be central to all we do in the C3 Student Ministry. While we will have fun in our ministry, we will not just be a social club for entertainment. C3 is committed to consistently teach our students the Scriptures and challenge our kids to see their world through the lens of the Scriptures. We will teach our students expositionally, topically, and theologically. We will also equip our students to better understand how to understand/study their bibles and share their faith. Last and certainly not least, we see the role of parents as the primary teachers, instructors, and disciples of their children. We will encourage parents to continue to teach and train their kids in the teaching and instruction of the Lord and fulfill their God-ordained role.

2. COMMUNITY

If there’s one thing kids desire, it’s having other kids around them who desire to pursue a life of Christlikeness alongside them. At C3, we will create environments where students are encouraged and challenged to lean on one another as they navigate the challenging teen years. We desire that our students have fun together for the purpose of building community. Our Sunday night gatherings, socials, and mission initiatives will encourage students to build deeper relationships with one another and the adult leaders. We also see the role of Community Groups in our church as a vital tool for parents to teach and model to their kids what it looks like to live in the community. We will encourage parents to have their kids engaged in the life of community groups (and not just be babysitters for the adults!).

3. MISSION

We desire to see our kids come to faith themselves and then engage in the mission God has clearly laid out for the church. From an early age, we desire to see our kids “give their lives away” in service to the Lord and truly be the Hands and Feet of Christ. These things are better “caught” than “taught” so the student ministry at C3 will engage in regularly scheduled gospel-centered service outreaches in our city and on yearly mission trips outside of Houston. We will also encourage parents to include their kids in the family, community group, and church-wide mission initiatives and model what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

We are praying for this retreat weekend to be an impactful experience where our students will take their first or next step in following Jesus and create deeper relationships with their small groups and adult leaders!

This retreat is a Discipleship Now (DNOW) format retreat, so our students will be staying in Houston at C3 host homes and we’ll gather together for worship, teaching, and fun activities.

Counseling

As C3 attempts to help people conform to the image of Christ, we realize that some need special care due to trauma, hardship, or other trials. Therefore, we are glad to offer biblical counseling to both members and non-members.
The mission of C3’s biblical counseling ministry is: To Glorify God by lovingly leading and instructing hurting people toward Christlikeness as they are transformed by His all-sufficient Word and Spirit.
