At Crossbridge Community Church, we believe spiritual growth happens best in community. 

We have over 50 small and medium-sized groups (meeting across the Illinois Valley) designed to help you connect with others and grow in your faith. For more information on adult small groups, childcare reimbursement and frequently asked questions, scroll down.

Adult small groups

A small group is a gathering of people with whom you share a common interest, seeking to connect with each other and God. 


The size of the groups are typically between 6-15 people. Most groups meet weekly for 10 to 12 weeks. 


Sign-ups for groups January, May and September.

Got Kids?

Crossbridge will reimburse you for childcare costs (up to $20) every time you attend either a grow or support group. Reimbursements must be requested after each small group meeting. Reimbursement is made at our sole discretion and may be discontinued at any time. Contact groups@crossbridgecommunity.com with any questions.

Small Group FAQs

1) How often will my Small Group meet?

Most groups meet weekly for 60-90 minutes over 10–12 weeks.


2) How can I be sure that there is a Small Group for me?

We have over 50 groups that meet throughout the Illinois Valley at different times each week. Check out our catalog for a full listing!


3) What kind of Small Groups are there?

There are three main "types" of groups:

Grow Groups – focused on sharing and study. 

• Activity Groups – focused on a shared activity.

• Support Groups – focused on support for a specific season of life.


4) I’ve got children, what should I do with them?

It depends. Each group is different. Some groups naturally lend themselves to including children and others do not (mostly due to the topic of study). We do offer childcare reimbursement. See above for details.
