What are Christian Life Communities?
On our journey of faith we need the company of each other – the friendship that develops not only in our small groups but also through our regional, national, and worldwide community.
Christian Life Community (CLC) is a group of people who meet together regularly to help each other know Christ better and to find what He is asking of us in our daily lives.
We focus on the three pillars of Spirituality, Community, and Mission.
Kim Walker Smith is a worship leader for Bethel Church. This video (about 50 minutes) presents Kim talking about her ministry, which you may find interesting. You may have heard her music or seen her videos, either as herself or as part of Jesus Culture. Do you think there is a place for worship music in addition to the Mass and the Sacraments?
In this special 3-part video, Marcus Grodi interviews three Catholic young adults on the experiences and struggles faced by young Catholics in trying to live out their faith in the 21st century.
