Here are our class/group offerings!

"Sermon Application Class" led by CLC's Elders. 


Description: This group takes the scripture passage from the previous Sunday and discusses how to apply it life.  This is a great easy-access, visitor-friendly discussion. This method was followed in Acts where believers examined the teaching they had heard, confirmed that teaching was an accurate teaching of the Word, and discussed it and devoted their lives to it  (Acts 2:41-42, and Acts 17:10).  The reality is, if we don’t discuss what we’ve heard it will often be like seed that is sown on rocky ground that is quickly carried away. But if we discuss it and listen and help one another apply it, that same message that might be forgotten on its own, takes on new life and new relevance.  For this term, the sermon series will continue passage by passage in Ephesians.  It’s the perfect time to join an application-based discussion because the passages of Ephesians have a laser-like focus on how they apply to our lives.

Location: Front Foyer outside of Sanctuary. 

Starting Date: January 18th!

"Colossians"  led by Denise Smith 

Description: This New Testament letter uniquely exalts the person and work of Christ by showing how Jesus Christ completes everything that we need.  You will be enriched by the study and preparation of Denise Smith who is a gifted Bible teacher and always comes prepared with extra background and insights to guide you into a personally discover of the greatness of God and the power of the scriptures.  If you’ve never studied Colossians, come each week and be freshly inspired by the soaring content of this brief, four chapter, Holy-Spirit inspired letter from the Apostle Paul.


Location: Room 212.

Starting Date: January 18th!

"Deeply Formed Life" book study led by misc. teachers.

DescriptionThis book won significant awards, including the Best Book of the year by Christianity Today, and the best book on Christian Formation. The book is ten chapters, and this discussion group will go through one chapter a week, which amounts to about 20 pages of reading. The book covers five indispensable values to be practiced to help us become people rooted in the way of Jesus, rooted in being Christ-like.  The book features the following five topics: Contemplation of Scripture, Public Practice of Justice, Internal Emotional Health, Sexual wholeness for a culture that splits bodies and souls, and Missional Presence.  Villodas makes the case that these five values form the foundational core of what establishes us in the way of Jesus Christ.

Required Preparation: In order to prepare for this class, participants are invited and strongly encouraged to work their way through the book, "Deeply Formed Life" by Rich Villodas by reading 1 chapter a week (approximately 20 pages). You can find the book for purchase off of amazon right HERE.  

LocationConference Room (room 105). 

Starting Date: January 18th!



Q: Is it required that we attend both the meal and a class/program at COW?

A: Nope! It is not required that you be at both the meal and the class/program. We simply see them as two different (and awesome) ways that you can Connect On Wednesday which is why we encourage anyone to consider both, however we won’t require attendance at either. So come enjoy a good meal with good community, and/or swing by to enjoy some of our evening offerings!


Q: Will there be something for everyone in my family?

A: Yes! Our hope is to create spaces for anyone and everyone to connect with each other and Jesus, so we do our best to create space for congregants of all ages! We have stuff for kids, students, and adults. You can learn more about our current offerings at COW right HERE

Q: Do you have any offerings for Nursery & Pre-School aged children?

A: Yes! We are planning on having spaces for and leaders to serve our youngest kiddos! (If you are interested in volunteering in these spaces, we could sure use the volunteer power)! 


Q: Does the meal cost money? 

A: Great question! The answer is yes, we do charge $5 per meal in order to cover the cost of the food itself. Our goal isn’t to make money from COW meals. In fact, our Big Yellow Mug team works diligently to provide all of our meals at-cost (they also do a pretty stellar job at making it nutritious and delicious too)! 

Q: I have a pretty big family. Is there a family spending cap on meals?

A: Also a great question! The answer is yes! In an effort to make Wednesday's as accessible as possible, there is a $25 cap for families so you can feed the whole crew without having to break the bank each week! If you have questions or need to inquire about any additional financial assistance, email us at


Q: Do you have virtual options for COW?

A: Occasionally, we do have virtual options for COW. This, in part, depends on the classes we are offering and the teachers of those classes. Some decide to make it virtual, however some only meet in person. You can see our different offerings (and whether or not we have virtual options) right here


Q: Can I bring friends and family to COW?

A: Of course! Everyone is welcomed to Connect On Wednesday. :) The more the merrier!


Q: Why is it called C.O.W.?

A: What originally was known as “Connect On Wednesday” quickly became abbreviated to C.O.W. People liked it and it was convenient, so it stuck!
