City Groups

Not your average "small group"...

One of the great things about CEPC is that we’re a community of people from all over Houston. As we read Acts 2:42-47, we see that there is time where the church gathers, but also time where the church scatters. You can sign up for one here: City Groups Sign Up, or find one on the map below and email a City Group Leader directly.

City Groups are our primary vehicle for discipleship at CEPC, and how we live as the “church scattered.” We seek gospel-change together: growing in our identity in Christ & letting that awareness of who we are in Him transform what we do in our everyday lives.

For example:

  • When I see how Jesus’ perfect life earned him the perfect performance review before the greatest boss, God- and that performance review is how God sees me…that lessens my need to work for approval or accolade, and to freely work serving my boss & peers.
  • When I see God Himself giving up control of His own life by becoming human, and placing His life in the hands of His earthly parents…that lessens my need for control and all the bitterness, anger, or impatience that tempts me when things beyond my control happen.
  • When I see how spiritually poor I was before Christ, and how spiritually rich I am in Him…that transforms my approach to things like the poor, to my personal finances, and the way I run a business.

In City Groups, we also want this transformation in each others’ lives. Thus, City Groups are a means of discipleship in community. But we also seek this transformation for all of Houston- so City Groups are our means for living out God’s mission to gather a people unto Himself.
