Here at Crosswind, we believe that relationships play an important role in growing as a Christian. We are not just on our own journey to follow Jesus, but we recognize that God has given us companions for that journey. Together we can laugh, cry, sweat, snack, learn, play, fail, succeed, and grow; not on our own, but together. We like to call that community, and that’s why we encourage everyone to get involved in one of our various Growth Groups.
So what exactly are Growth Groups?
They are small groups of 8-12 people that meet together routinely (for about 9-12 weeks at a time) in homes throughout the Carroll County and surrounding areas. Through these groups, we build healthy new relationships while focusing on a particular area of interest or study. Each semester we offer a whole new batch of topics or book studies to choose from. We try our best to make sure that there’s something for everyone, so that no one needs to be left out. If you are new to our church we always encourage you to sign up for Growth Track to get you started. We offer Growth Track a few times a year on Sunday Morning at 11:15 a.m.
Check out the list below to learn about the current groups that we are offering this semester and then simply sign up on Sundays through our Connection Card, call directly or Register Here!
Growth Groups - Winter 2014
Our Growth Groups for the winter are beginning the week of January 26! This semester we're focusing on sharing our faith with others. We have two options for studies. One is Becoming a Contagious Christian by Mark Mittelberg and Lee Strobel, a fantastic study on relational evangelism. It will teach you how to create a lifestyle of influencing others and taking advantage of opportunities to share your faith. The second option is Sharing Jesus Without Fear by William Fay. Prepare to be challenged with our responsibility to tell lost people about Jesus, and be equipped to share truth with confidence and effectiveness.
