Home Groups

Alameda

7:00-8:30pm 1st & 3rd Fridays

Our Alameda HG includes singles, couples, and families with young children and older children.  We meet the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from 7:00-8:30pm. Prior to Covid, we met in person in one of the homes in Alameda. But for the last year and a half we have been meeting on Zoom. We are hoping that we can meet in person, but most likely will have at least one Zoom meeting per month. Our meeting consists of both studying the Word and sharing/praying in same gender small groups. In the past we have done inductive Bible studies, topical study of interest/relevance, or have followed with the church’s sermon series.  

This past season has been a challenging one for all, but it’s been a blessing to have our HG family to support, share, encourage and pray with each other. We look forward to continue to grow in our walk with the Lord as well as serving in our communities.

Berkeley/El Cerrito

Every other Friday from 6:45pm-9pm  

We are a diverse mix of singles & couples with kids, introverts & extroverts, ministry workers & seekers, but one thing we all have in common is the desire to grow in our faith and learn from each other. We have some in depth discussions, we delve into the Bible, we laugh a lot and have awesome Christmas parties and retreats too! We are on a break until the Fall, but please come and check us out when we restart!  


Berkeley/Oakland/Alameda

1st Three Thursdays

Purpose of our ministry: In homegroup we want to know and serve one another -- sharpening and spurring each other on. Together we want to depend on the Lord prayerfully, have our foundation in knowing and drawing strength from the Gospel, and support each other towards putting our faith into action.

What a day in your group looks like: We spend time studying the word together as well as spend time praying for and keeping other accountable. As best as possible, we try to do life together!!

EC/Berkeley Young Families

2nd & 4th Saturdays

The El Cerrito/Berkeley Young Families Home Group aims to live life together. Our hope is to grow in community through Bible study, prayer, fellowship, service, and food. Our group consists primarily of families with young children, but we also have a mix of singles, couples with older kids, and couples without children. We welcome all ages and life stages! We generally meet the second and fourth Saturdays, alternating between a Bible study and a group activity/outing.

Oakland Hills

7:00-9:00 pm Wednesdays

We love to fellowship and eat together! Our group meets every Wednesday evening from 7-9 p.m. in the Oakland Hills. The evening starts off with dinner, and we take turns providing food for the entire group. For the second hour, we typically alternate between a week of study and a week of sharing/prayer.

Our group strives to build strong community and a deeper knowledge of God. Because we meet on such a regular basis, there’s a wonderful opportunity to really share and experience life with each other, as well as build upon our relationship with God through strong teaching. An added bonus: when we enjoy a great meal prepared by someone else, we truly feel blessed!    

We are a diverse mix of singles and couples (with and without kids). We live in different parts of the East Bay, from Alameda to Richmond. We can all fondly reminisce about good 80s/90s music and fads, to give you a sense of our age group. Many of us are/have been very active in CLC’s various ministries.

Orinda

2 Fridays/month

The Orinda HG is a family HG mainly with high school age kids and their parents. We've been on a bit of a sabbatical, but intend to meet two Fridays a month. HG is a time to break bread (we like food), have a short teaching time and prayer. We are God-seeking folks who struggle together through life stages such as aging parents, teenage issues, work dilemmas and marital topics. In trying to apply God's teachings to our lives we are super casual, full of mistakes and non-judgmental. Praise God!

Young Professionals

5:00pm 1st Three Sundays

We are a community of young adults journeying together to discern what it looks like to be faithful workers in the Bay Area. We support and spur one another on in the journey God has prepared for us.

When in person, we share dinner together to enjoy each other's company, then we will do a brief bible/book study or prayer time or discuss a topic of interest. We're flexible and adjust to the needs and desires of the group.

We meet at 5pm on the first three Sundays of the month in San Leandro.

God Sightings: we've been able to celebrate several marriages, partnered with Turning Point ( a women's recovery home), and seen a couple baptisms in our group!

Tikvah

7:30-9:00pm Tuesdays

A CLC home group made up of optometry students and young working professionals based in Berkeley.

We typically meet up on Tuesday evenings 7:30-9:00PM alternating between Bible study and prayer nights (a time of sharing and fellowship) depending on the week.
