1. They are centered on the study of the Word of God
LifeGroups provide people with an additional way to study the Word of God outside of the Sunday morning service, building a relationship with God through the study of His Word. This is the centerpiece of the LifeGroup.
2. They are networks of care for our church
LifeGroup leaders provide an "atmosphere of care” where people know that they will be cared for, and where they are also challenged to care for each other as well.
3. Relationship building networks
Just as we are called to live in fellowship with others in the body of Christ, we want to provide opportunities for people to do that. Getting to know others and doing life together in a LifeGroup is one of the ways to do that.
How do I know if I'm ready to join a LifeGroup?
If Crossroads is a place that you feel you can call your church home, and you desire to get connected with others while learning more about the Bible, we invite you to consider joining a LifeGroup.
Do you think you're a potential LifeGroup leader?
Crossroads is looking for additional LifeGroup leaders and prior leading experience is not required. We want people to know that they don't need to have every answer to every Biblical question figured out before they explore leading a LifeGroup. In essence, we look for leaders who are hungry to grow in their knowledge and love of God and who, because of their love for God, model for others a willingness to be faithful to God with their time, treasure and talents. We really look for people who have a heart for helping others grow in their love for God.
What does Pastor Jeff have to say about LifeGroups?
"We want to be a church where people are real and authentic with one another. One of the ways that happens is by people getting to know each other beyond the surface level which they might experience in our limited time together on Sundays.
Anyone and everyone can be a member of a LifeGroup, no matter how new or "old" in their faith. Additionally, my prayer is that as LifeGroup members study the Word together, they continue to grow in their love for God, but also in their love for people. As this happens, they have the chance to model love for others in terms of how they care for others and how they relate to others interpersonally."
