Spreading the fire of God’s presence and power
to every community in Pierce County.

C-Groups are the heart of Zion’s River.  Led by members, these small groups meet weekly in homes and other locations around the Tacoma area.  The meeting format provides members with an intimate setting where they can grow in their relationships with both God and other people.  The bottom line is that C-Groups are all about cultivating life and community as members become the eyes, ears, mouth, and hands of Jesus.  Interested?  Take a look at the list of available groups!  Contact Pastor Rob to request more information about C-Groups in general or to receive information about a specific group click on the leader’s name.
