We believe God created us for community. And that He never intended for us to make this journey alone! That's why we encourage everyone who attends CrossView to take the next, right step and get connected.
What is a Connect Group? Connect Groups are groups of people who meet weekly around a common interest, study, or activity. They are made up of people like you who want to grow in relationship with Jesus and connect with others who are headed in the same direction. Connect Groups have 6-20 people and meet weekly for 6 to 12 weeks. It's a short-term commitment, so give it a try! Each season, most of the groups in our catalog are new.
When do Connect Groups begin? Connect Groups begin in January/Februrary, again in April/ May, and in September/October. A few Connect Groups meet during each summer beginning in the end of July.
How do I know which Connect Group is for me? There are always lots of options when it comes to finding a group that fits you. When you look through the listing you’ll see groups generally fall into the following types:
■ Family or Parenting Groups
■ Couples Groups
■ Women's Groups
■ Men's Groups
■ Groups for Specific Ages or Stages
■ Activity Groups
■ Support and Recovery Groups
Within each of these categories you’ll find groups by day, time, location or other parameters that will help you connect. Some groups offer childcare.
How do I join a Connect Group? CrossView offers Connect Groups three times a year. If you miss one session, it's only a few months until the next Connect Group session begins. If you would like to join a specific Connect Group or would like further information, simply fill out a Connection Card at the weekend services. Once you indicate that you are interested in a Connect Group, a staff person will contact you.
