Connect Groups at CrossRoad exist to remind us that we are made in God’s image, and created for community. Connect Groups are the best place to bring your questions about faith and the Bible, how to overcome struggles, or recover from relationship blowups. They’re also the perfect place to do something you love, like singing or knitting, and to laugh about the silly things your grandkids said last weekend.
And Connect Groups even help you grow with practical groups like DivorceCare and GriefShare. In person or online, we want to help you connect with a community. Groups meet seasonally for 4 weeks or more. If you’re looking for a place to belong, let us help you connect with the perfect group for this season in your life!
