Our mission is to encourage believers to live purposefully, work fruitfully, and grow consistently. Colossians 1:10 (C1:10) says, "So that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God."

Who We Are

C1/10 is a group of adults in our 30’s and 40’s who have set out to live purposefully, work fruitfully, and grow consistently in this stage of our lives. We do this through connecting with one another and building godly relationships. We value the Word of God, and make it priority to reflect and respond to it personally and at every C1/10 gathering.

Becoming Groups

Becoming Groups serve as a place for our church body to gather outside of our normal Sunday and Tuesday services to seek the Lord–deepening our walk–and to connect deeply with one another.

All of our groups gather to discuss the content of the previous Sunday’s sermon. Groups will commit over the course of three months to meeting in various locations through the city.

Escape The Room Chicago is a one-of-a-kind interactive experience that will challenge all your senses.
