COMMUNITY LIFE

What is Community Life at 4C’s?

Our hope at 4Cs is to build an environment where Christians of all stages can enter into transformational discipleship.

What is transformational discipleship?

For us it means that we want to see our community live with dedication to growing deeper in the calling of Christ, deeper into His community, and further in His Kingdom mission. Our faith journey is a lifelong process of learning to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

We never “graduate” from the school of Christian living. As we learn to apply and obey Christ’s teachings, our life will increasingly reflect our commitment to Christ. In other words, transformational discipleship is the result of a lifelong process. A real, radical change expressed in both our individual and our community life.

To support Christian growth in individuals and within the church, we believe that there are four essential elements that foster the transforming work of the Spirit:

  • God’s Word – Shaping our Actions and our lives

  • Relationships – Community nurturing and encouraging our growth

  • Obedient Living – Abiding in Christ as we hear his call to witness for his name

  • Worship – Interacting with and experiencing the presence of God

Community Life Groups

At 4C’s, we believe it is of the utmost importance that each of us has a place to be known and to know others. No matter how long you have been in our community, if you are looking for a point of connection where you can grow personally and spiritually, consider joining a Community Life Group (CLG) this season.

For more information or questions, please contact Nathan Alley, the Director of Community Growth: Nathan.Alley@4cs.church

Community Life Group Leaders Resources

The Art of Neighboring: Perhaps your Community Life Group is interested in working through a study on reaching out to your neighborhood.

The Art of Neighboring video study will empower you and your group to learn how to hold conversations, face fears that many of us have in sharing our faith and understanding the role of hospitality as a witness for Christ.  Follow this link to RightNow Media to connect with the study.

NEW!
Living for His Glory – A Bible Study on How God’s Glory Brings Transformation
Sunday Morning Bible Study Opportunity, six weeks, beginning July 11 at 9 am (First Service) in the Fireside Room. 
Does your personal faith allow room in your life for God to show His power, beauty, and majesty? When it feels like things are only getting worse, the Glory of God becomes even more evident. As Christians, we can place our hope in knowing that God changes peoples lives. And we can put our faith to action by allowing His glory to change us, too! Join George Capan, and others in this weekly Bible study, as we search the scriptures and encourage one-another toward aligning our lives into the likeness of the Glorious Christ Jesus!
