Small Groups
Small Groups Webpage 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 Small Groups.

So what exactly are Small Groups?

They are groups of 8-12 people that meet together routinely (for about 12 weeks at a time) in homes and at the church. Through these groups, we build 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.
