We gather in community groups with our friends and neighbors to live life together and experience the gospel in ways we can’t on our own. It is the best way to get to know people at Cross Point and grow in Christ on a more personal level.
A Cross Point Community Group is made up of people who gather regularly to study and discuss the Bible, care for another and seek to intentionally live everyday life alongside one another. These groups meet all across our towns on various nights of the week in homes.
How do you join a group? GroupLink is the primary way to join a group here at Cross Point. GroupLink is an event held twice a year, January and August. At GroupLink you are able to meet new group leaders forming a group as well as existing group leaders adding to their group.

A community group is an environment where individuals are known, cared for, and encouraged in their relationship with God. Community groups consist of 8-14 people and are for people at all ages and stages in life. The purpose of a community group is to enable individuals to grow in a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and love him more through fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
Initially new groups meet for 8 weeks. The group then decides as a group if they wish to continue doing life together. Most groups choose to stay together through several seasons of Bible study. A typical Mixed, Men’s, or Women’s group might wish to stay together for a year or two.
Though groups will differ in how they do things from week to week, most groups spend time catching up with one another at the beginning, then move into a time of Bible study, and conclude in prayer together. Also groups enjoy serving together as well outside of the weekly group time.
Each new group begins with studying “Community, starting well in your Community Group”. Leaders and groups together decide on their subsequent studies which varies from group to group. Studies are designed to lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. All studies are approved by the community group leadership.
None. A community group is a safe place for individuals to learn and grow together through group discussion. People are at various points in their relationship with God and knowledge of the Bible, and we believe that is what makes the time together rich and enjoyable for all.
Several groups offer childcare in their homes. Babysitting needs are decided by each group. Parents take turns or they hire a babysitter and the parents share the cost.
