Sunday worship is awesome, but it's just not enough

 

We need more. We need friends. We need each other.

That's what LifeGroups are all about. These groups of 6-12 people gather regularly to experience Jesus by sharing testimonies, caring and praying for each other, and loving one another. 

In other words, it's how we do life together!  

This is where you connect with people at Crossroads. Where you make your closest friends. These are the people who will be there for you during tough times. The ones who will celebrate with you in times of joy. 

LifeGroups at Crossroads are based on common interests. So if you're a young couple, we've got groups for you. If you enjoy cooking, we can hook you up. Want to go deep into God's word? Manage your finances in a biblical, life-enriching way? Meet other seniors? Become a better man of God? LifeGroups are your key!

And if you don't find something that suits your interests, let us know. We love launching new LifeGroups, and we'd be happy to help you get one started!
