One of the most effective ways to build relationships and grow in our faith is by joining a Growth Group. We offer a variety of groups that meet at a variety of times and places. Let us know you’d like to join a Growth Group by filling out a Connection Card in a worship service or emailing Pastor John for more information.
HOW BIG IS A GROUP AND WHEN DO GROUPS MEET?
Around 10-12 people typically will be part of a group that meet regularly to pursue spiritual growth and grow in healthy, Christ-centered relationships. Each group determines what day, time, and place is best for their group.
There are a wide variety of groups at Cross of Christ from stage of life to areas of interest to neighborhood-based (location) groups.
HOW DOES A TYPICAL GROWTH GROUP MEETING FLOW?
Most groups try to keep their meetings to around 2 hours total to respect everyone’s time. Here is a sample flow of the group meeting:
- Hang out (about 10 minutes)
- DVD/Questions/Discussion (80 minutes)
- Close and hang out some more (10 minutes)
WHO LEADS THE GROUPS?
Your Growth Group leader is a regular person just like you who attends Cross of Christ. Many of our Group Leaders are long-time group members who love helping people like you get connected into a great group!
WHAT IS THE TOPIC FOR GROUPS?
Sometimes groups pick their own topics and sometimes they follow a study that we are doing church-wide. Let us or your Group Leader know if you have any recommendations…we’ll check it out!
