Our home groups are wonderful opportunities to build personal relationships and practice the application of the gospel in our lives. They meet anywhere from two to four times a month and serve as a wonderful entry point for those new to our church.

Books and Nurture

Books and Nurture is a small home group of fellow Christians, mostly from TCC, who like to read and enjoy sharing information and insight from their reading as seen through the filter of a Christian world view.  The format has traditionally been one of individual book reports and discussion, but more recently has included a series of video-supported Bible studies.  All meetings begin with a time of fellowship and light refreshments and conclude with a time of sharing and prayer.

Time of Meeting: Sunday Evenings, as determined by members needs | 6:30 p.m.

Location: Frank & Joyce Taylor’s Home

Family Fellowship Home Group

Family Fellowship Group:  One of the most beautiful parts of God’s design of the church is living in community with one another. We were not created to live in isolation. It is easy to put on a smile & pass each other by on a Sunday morning without acknowledging the weighty things of life: relationships, marriage, parenting, school, work, etc. Our hope is for this time together to serve the church by sharing life together. We will gather twice a month on Thursday nights with the same people to share life together, pray for one another & press each other on to live faithfully before God & before the world. May we sharpen each other & cultivate worship in our daily lives. Children & families are encouraged to come together. Initially we will fellowship all together with adequate space for kids to play & be among us. Later we plan to divide men & women for more concentrated time of prayer & accountability. All ages are welcome! 

Time of Meeting: 2nd & 4th Thursday | 6:30 -.  8:30 p.m.
