Visit a Life Group

Life groups are the core of Crossroads’ ministry. A life group (formerly called small group) is a great place to know people at Crossroads, grow in Christ, and share the love of Christ with others. The focus of the life group meeting is to apply the weekend message (whatever the pastor spoke about) to our lives.
