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.

  • Dr James (Jim) Coyle

    G. P. S. - Going through Personal Storms

    Storms are always affecting our lives--even when everything seems calm. We are always driving into a storm, driving through a storm, or driving out of a storm. 

    These storms can last for minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even years.


    Dr. James Coyle, a chaplain and mental health specialist, shares life lessons on recognizing these storms and navigating them so you can continue in your desired direction. Drawing on his personal experience, including a suicide attempt, divorce, and career challenges, he helps you

    - pinpoint the choices you've made that have led to specific outcomes;

    - focus on the important things that anchor your existence;

    - help yourself by helping others; and

    - approach each day with hope, faith, and love.

  • Bloom Women's Study

    I Am Statements of Christ -  Lisa Terkeurst

    What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.


    Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.
