What is a LifeGroup?
LifeGroups are the place for growing in our relationship with Jesus and connecting in community with our Crossroads’ family. It’s where we discuss and apply biblical principles to our spiritual growth and the issues and challenges of life. In LifeGroups, we pray together, serve together, and care for one another.
Connecting with others in authentic biblical community is one of God’s primary ways to help us grow and experience being a part of His family. Joining a LifeGroup is not just the best step we can take to make Crossroads family and deepen our faith – it’s where we can experience the joy and laughter of being a part of a close group of friends.
How do I connect with a LifeGroup?
LifeGroups come in all shapes and sizes: Mixed groups, couple’s groups, men’s, women’s and young adults. They are groups of 8-12 people, 5-6 couples, who commit to meet regularly with each other in homes, offices and favorite coffee shops across our communities.
GroupLink is a 90 minute event, held during different times of the year, designed specifically to connect you to a LifeGroup. It’s interactive and fun and we’ll have plenty of people on hand to introduce you to others, like you, who are looking for a group.
We’ll provide some great food and you can check with your campus to see if there is childcare provided (birth-11yrs).
It’s a great time and simply the best way to get into a LifeGroup at Crossroads.
Check out our group locator to see if there is an open group that might be a good fit for you.
Making sure your new group is a great fit.
During the first 8 weeks of your newly formed group, you will spend time getting to know each other while you do a short Bible study. At the end of this time, you’ll have the opportunity to decide to continue with the group or choose to check out another group at our next GroupLink.

I would like to lead or host a LifeGroup.
LifeGroup leaders and hosts provide an opportunity for people to connect with others, grow in their relationship with Christ, and experience community. They come from a variety of backgrounds, life experiences, and age groups. What they have in common is a desire to see people grow spirituality, connect relationally, and experience doing life together on mission with Jesus. As a LifeGroup Host, you simply open your home and provide a comfortable atmosphere for your LifeGroup to come together. As a LifeGroup leader, you help guide the group through discussion questions and facilitate the care of your group members.
All it takes is a small step of faith to find out more about hosting and leading! For more information contact your campus pastor.
