C-Groups

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.

Heather: “I started attending Zion’s River three years ago. The grace and unfailing love of God humble me. I’ve been to a few different churches, but Zion’s River is the first one in which I have found God’s presence. I’m excited about our new Connection Group and I can’t wait to see what God has in store.”

Sherry: “I’ve called Washington my home for more than half my life. God led me to Zion’s River four years ago. Here I began to actually hear God speaking to me. Here I am refreshed and renewed. I have experienced so much growth here. A big part of that growth came when I joined a C-Group – that transformed me. I am excited to lead a C-Group. We look forward to the relationships we will develop and the support we will give and receive.”

Sam:  “I have a heart to see men restored and living the God-life they were born to live. I enjoy a good steak and fellowship with other men. This group of men encourages each other, shares their stories and experiences, and works to apply the Word of God together. If you’re looking for a few good men to grow stronger with, this is your group.

Phillip:  “I was Spirit-led to Zion’s River in 2017. I’ve found that the same Spirit was present on Sunday mornings. Learning what salvation is, I began attending a Connection Group, where I developed relationships, encouragement and support. Transformation is real! Now I have the opportunity to facilitate a C-Group. Spirit have your way!”
