Community Groups

Build Relationships. Grow Deeper Together

Cross Sound Community Groups are small groups of ten to sixteen members. The groups meet weekly, bi-weekly or monthly in homes. The time together is split among Bible study, personal application, and relationships.

Some of the groups will use “sermon-based” curriculum, while others will use curriculum of special interest to them. Sermon-based curriculum are lessons that are directly linked to the pastors’ Sunday morning sermons. These lessons allow the pastors to apply a common spiritual vision across the church family and each participant to have similar knowledge of the subject they will discuss.

There are three sessions per year: fall, winter, and spring. At the end of each session, participants have the choice of remaining in their group, joining a new group, or taking a break.

Those signing up will be placed into groups according to choice of group, choice of weeknight, life situation, and geographical area.

These groups are places where meaningful relationships are developed. They form support networks that provide the individual with support, inspiration, encouragement, and accountability. They are places where one can be prayed for as well as pray for others. In this environment, members experience community and are equipped for ministry.

We’re convinced that community groups are a part of every healthy church, which is why our goal is that we are not a church that has small groups, but rather a church of small groups. If you are interested in trying out one of these community groups or finding out more information about a group that would work for you, please contact Roger Barber.
