LIFE GROUPS

LIFE Groups are about Living In Faith Everyday. During the year, we have weeknight Life Groups and Spiritual Growth Groups for 6-10 weeks at a time.  We gather to learn more about the Bible, understand our gifts, grow in character and learn parenting, marriage and other skills. Please take a moment to browse through the information below.  If you have any questions at all, contact the office!

THIS FALL WE ARE STUDYING:

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

THE GOSPEL-CENTERED COMMUNITY

IIn this nine-lesson small group study with leader’s notes, participants will learn how the Spirit shapes diverse people into a Christ-centered community that reflects Jesus. Gospel-Centered Community is a wise, biblically solid guide inviting readers to take the plunge toward deeper, richer relationships—centered on Christ....Real community is hard to come by. Gospel-Centered Community serves as an easy-to-follow road map for applying the gospel to relationships at church and in the community. Learn how Christ changes us and calls us to be a light to our communities.

From Pastor Joe: “In keeping with our desire to cultivate a healthy and vibrant gospel culture at Crossroads, we invite everyone to join me and Andy Skinner (the facilitator) in a study of The Gospel-Centered Community. We pray that this study will have a humane effect on our church body and deepen our shared experience of God's grace, leading us to walk in honesty, freedom, humility, and gentleness.”

CONNECTED LIVES THROUGH LIFE GROUPS

  • I felt very comfortable in my group.  Great facilitator.  It was uplifting to experience the diversity of scripture and to discuss it openly. 
  • This helps me feel like church is happening all week long. 
  • I admire the facilitators because it was clear they put a lot of work into preparation for the presentations.  They  gave so much information and insights.  They did a great job!
  • I love the Christ family connection in addition to Sundays. 
  • I got to know others on a deeper level. 
  • The wide variety of courses always makes it difficult to choose just one. 
  • I really appreciate sharing time with fellow Christians and that they all wanted to know me better.
