Series Big Idea: The 3Cs here at Community are directions that guide us as we grow in our relationship with God, each other, and the world. This series is designed to help everyone (from first-time guests to skeptics, doubters, casual Christians, and fully devoted followers) take their next step in the 3C’s.
