life is better together.

Groups are designed to help you connect with others - and grow in your faith.

COVID-19 update

We are asking groups to postpone physically meeting until April 6. But check in on each other during this time, send messages, make phone calls, and continue to practice community the best you can!

how do i start my own grouP?

We'd love for you to start your own! Email Sherry with any questions or get started.

what should i expect?

1) How often will my group meet?

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


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

We have a variety of groups at all different times throughout the week in several of the cities around. Have an idea for your own? Start one!


3) What kinds of 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 is the policy?

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.

got kids?

We know how difficult it can be getting a sitter. Let us make it a little bit easier. Crossbridge will reimburse you for childcare costs (up to $20 per week) when 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.
