Community Group Curriculum Suggestions and Resources


See our list of recommended studies and curriculum below to help your group grow and thrive.

1. CORE CLASSES

A great way to grow deeper spiritually together as a community group is to take one of our Core classes together. CORE is CBC’s training center made up of 10 classes, which are available for anyone. These classes are designed for believers to grow and develop as Christ-followers in a way that is consistent with our “UP, IN, and OUT” model by shepherding believers in three foundational areas.

  • UP: Biblical Foundation 
  • IN: Spiritual Formation 
  • OUT: Mission and Ministry

For more information on upcoming Core Classes, visit communitybible.com/core
