Small Groups Are Online

Our small groups are aimed at connecting the transforming power of Jesus to everyday life through relationship-building and Bible study or book discussions.

Summer Groups

The summer groups are a great opportunity to connect with CPCers through Bible study discussion, prayer, and community on Zoom. Follow these easy instructions to download and use Zoom on a laptop, PC, or tablet for the best viewing (although your phone works too.)

Ideas for small group studies this summer:

  • We have put together a study guide that pairs with the June/July sermon series on the Psalms. Consider discussing this study together as a group. 
  • RightNow Media is a great resource for video-based studies. It’s easy to set up a free account. Access the CPC library in RightNow Media for some of our recommendations. Groups can watch the videos together through Zoom screen sharing or you can watch on your own and come together to discuss. Many of the video series have free downloadable discussion guides.
  • We recommend the YouVersion Bible app as a great way to stay in Scripture as a group or on your own. When you start a new plan, choose the option of reading it “With Friends,” and the app will walk you through inviting others to join you. Consider one of these plans:

If your group is not already set up to meet using CPC’s private Zoom account, please let us know. We’d be happy to get you set up!

Online Meeting Tips

Instructions for Using Zoom

Here are a few best practices for a good online meeting experience:

  • Choose the quietest place in your home or wherever you happen to be. Turn off anything making noise in the background.
  • Level your device on a table and look into the camera so everyone has a good view of you.
  • To minimize background noise, use MUTE when you’re not speaking if your group is larger than 6-8 people. This takes some practice so don’t be offended when your group reminds you.
  • Use only one device in a room on the same call or you’ll get feedback that everyone can hear.
  • Sit with your back to a wall rather than a window (backlight makes it difficult to see you).
  • Use headphones if others are nearby and you don’t want to disturb them.

Take some time to explore the Discipleship Resource to go deeper in your relationship with Jesus.
