Growth Groups
Growth Groups Page Header


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 12 weeks at a time) in homes throughout the Carroll County and Hanover areas.  Through these groups, we build healthy new relationships while focusing on a particular area of interest or study.  Each semester we offer numerous 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.  

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
