And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
The purpose of 242 Groups is essentially “fellowship around the Word.” They exist for the people of CBC to build relational connections, new and old, that are centered on Jesus Christ and His gospel.
They take place at various times and locations, with slightly different emphases. Groups are led by faithful members of CBC, and overseen by our elders and deacons. Whichever 242 Group you choose will determine your designated elder and deacon at CBC. While all of the church and its staff, pastors/elders, deacons, and leaders will seek to serve you, these elders and deacons will be tasked specifically to care for you and your family. Also, 242 Groups are the primary contexts in which CBC members care for one another. We hope, for your spiritual health and encouragement, that you will consider belonging to a 242 Group this season.
|To sign up for a 242 Group, contact Kathy King, or call the church office (913-782-9100). Because we want to keep each 242 Group manageable and intimate in relationships, we may limit group size. Register soon to ensure your preferred option!
|Note: If none of these groups work for your schedule, please let us know! Our goal is to provide enough options to meet the needs of every CBC member. And do let us know if you have any questions about any of these groups.
