Welcome to the Groups Catalog for the 2021-22 ministry year. The purpose of Crossroads group life is to connect people in spaces where we can build relationships, grow spiritually and transform our homes and communities with God’s love.
New Fall Journey Groups
Beginning September 19, Journey Groups will meet 8 times on campus, in homes or in workspaces to discuss the weekend message and explore fresh expressions of healthy spirituality. Journey Groups go hand in hand with the fall teaching series, Believing Like Jesus— a challenging exploration into Jesus’ beliefs and how those beliefs can transform our personal beliefs about God.
