What are Life Groups?

These are small groups of Christians at Crossway Community Church that meet regularly for Prayer, Bible Study and Fellowship.

Why do we have Life Groups?

Life Groups are structured around the belief that deeper, more meaningful relationships happen outside of the large Sunday church gathering. Those involved in life groups are more likely to feel connected and have the understanding of what being the church is all about (Acts 2:42-47  ). These are also great opportunities to develop new friendships and grow spiritually in a family style atmosphere.

What goes on in a Life Group meeting?

Though each group differs in how they do things, many groups start with a time of fellowship and mutual encouragement and then have some sort of Bible study and Prayer time.

Where do Life Groups meet?

Some groups meet at the church office while others meet in homes.

When do Life Groups meet?

Some meet on Sunday afternoons, some on Sunday evenings, and some on weekday evenings.

Who attends Life Groups?

Everyone is invited to visit and attend our Life Groups. Some groups are composed of people in the same stage of life (single, young married, parents, empty nesters, etc.), while others are open to people of all ages and stages of life.

What do Life Groups study?

With the help of the leader, each group picks their own Bible study curriculum to go through, within the parameters of Biblical truth. Feel free to contact a Group Leader to ask them what their group is studying.
