As the modern church has grown in size, it has been increasingly difficult to connect with other people. Grow is all about connecting individuals to be able to experience the Christian life in the context of community.
Through Life Groups and Home Groups, we offer you a safe place to explore new relationships and grow in your relationship with God. It is about you taking steps forward in your spiritual growth and development, regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey.
Groups meet Fall (Oct-Dec), Spring (Feb-May) & Summer (Jun-Aug)
Life Groups are the best way to connect with people at CrossWay. Each group meets 8 - 12 weeks, on different days, times, and locations, and topics vary to help you in your current stage of life and wherever you are on your spiritual journey. Life Groups are a great step for plugging into CrossWay and for growing spiritually.
Groups meet year-round
Home Groups follow a more traditional small group approach: a group of people to grow with for a longer period of time. They are built around the model seen in the Bible where the early church met in homes, worshipped God, and cared for each others' needs. Because of this, Home Groups are formed based on similar desires, gender, phase of life, or a blending of people, and are focused on growing in a closed community for one year, with the option of returning annually. Each group is unique, and will have varying topics of Biblical study based on the desires of the members.
Looking for another way to connect at CrossWay? Connect Events are designed to build relationships among those who attend CrossWay by bridging weekend services and Life Groups/Home Groups. The hope is that after attending a Connect Event, Saturdays and Sundays will be "friendlier" with recognizable faces and new friendships! This will in turn make joining a Life Group/Home Group easier.
The events and topics will vary from year to year, but currently these Connect events are offered:
reFRESH Women's Retreat (winter)
Men's March Madness Event (winter)
FUSION Men's Retreat (fall)
Women's Thanksgiving Event (fall)
55 years and older
Join with other seniors at CrossWay for a time of community and encouragement while diving into Scripture. This is a wonderful time of studying God's Word with others who are in the same phase of life. The Bible study meets weekly on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm at the Germantown Campus.
The Snappy Seniors also have a wonderful time of community with a luncheon on the second Friday of each month. This time is for making friends, establishing relationships with people of similar needs, sharing burdens, and having Christ-centered fellowship.
