Council

Third CRC is an intentionally missional church, where resources are focused on transforming the neighborhoods surrounding each of our homes and lives.

In order to help us do this, our church family is organized into seven "neighborhoods," with an Elder and Deacon overseeing each one.  The goal of these groups is that we might take care of one another and that, together, we may bless our neighbors, friends, co-workers and community in Jesus' name.
