Life Groups at CRFC

Welcome to Life Groups at CRFC. Never have we been as excited as we are now about small groups. To say we are expecting big things is to put it mildly. As you open your heart to let God use Life Groups, we know that God is going to do some unbelievable things.

Please, take a minute and look through the list of Life Groups listed below. We have something for everyone. Find one that fits your schedule and needs as a family, then send the leader an email. They would love to answer your questions and help you get connected.

Doing Life Together,

    Redeemed | Angela Thomas-Pharr

    Coming in April 2017


    The moment you accept Jesus as the Lord over your life, you are redeemed. As the redeemed, we experience a lifelong journey of being transformed into HIs image. As redeemed women, we grow in the grace of Christ, and He calls us to extend grace to others.


    In this 7-session Bible study, Angela Thomas-Pharr explores the practical side of redemption, inviting us to lean upon Jesus for our real help and hope.
