During the week many people from CrossWay gather together in Small Groups. These meetings allow people to minister to each other, learn more about God's Word, serve their communities, and grow relationally. We think these times are an important component in the life of our church, so we encourage all members and regular attenders to seriously consider joining a group.
The format, meeting times, and frequency of meeting varies but all of the groups last from September through May.
Small Group Descriptions for 2016-17
If you are interested in joining a small group mid-year, please contact Dan Allen.
Leaders: Guy & Leia Johnson
Meets: Mondays, 7:00-9:00pm, Johnson’s home
Have you wondered how to take tangible steps in sharing the love of Christ with those in your sphere of influence? Together we will seek to grow and encourage each other in articulating and living out the gospel to those who don't yet know and worship God. We'll dive into scripture and content every other meeting and on the other weeks will alternate gathering together over a meal and scattering to trust God for opportunities to display and declare the gospel.
Leaders: Sam & Abby Park
Meets: Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00pm, Park’s and Stibbe’s homes
You don’t have to be a professional counselor to counsel people. In fact, we are counseling one another all the time in our words and actions. We listen, speak, and love all the time. So how does the Gospel apply to this type of informal counseling in our lives? This group will explore ways in which God uses people in need of change to help other people in need of change. We will be going through Paul Tripp’s Instrument in the Redeemer’s Hands video series and the book of James so that we can grow in lovingly counseling one another. We will alternate meeting as a full group and as women’s and men’s groups throughout the month.
Faith and Culture
Leaders: Greg & Julie Edlund
Meets: 2 Wednesdays per month, 6:30-9:00pm, Edlund’s home
A Think-to-Action Tank. We'll be seeking how to understand and apply the gospel to situations we face directly in our local communities and/or indirectly through public discourse. In the end, we'd like this group to be a catalyst that moves CrossWay toward gospel-action in our community and in our world. If you want to think more biblically about how you can engage your community for Christ, we'd love to have you. We'll also be hosting Faith & Culture nights (open to the whole church) four times a year. We will meet for dinner and discussion, two Wednesdays per month. On off weeks, we hope you will participate in a community ministry. Children are welcome at the dinner meetings.
Leaders: Joel & Janet Knapp
Meets: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00pm, Missiaens home
At CrossWay two things we often emphasize is that God’s people need God’s word, and they need other people, if they are to grow and persevere in the faith. This group puts emphasis on these important pieces of our walk. We will meet two times per month as a whole group, spending time in the book of Ephesians together, as well as having other types of gatherings interspersed throughout the year. We trust God will encourage, correct and strengthen us through His word and through one another.
