In John 10:10 Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
How can you make the most of your time at CrossRoads?
Join a small group! They meet once a week for about 45 minutes to an hour. We call them L.I.F.E. groups because in them you will experience learning, involvement, friendship, and encouragement. Small groups are not just a ministry; they are the lifeblood of our church.
L - Learning - You will learn practical truths from God's Word through doctrinally sound curriculum in an informal and loving atmosphere. You will also learn from excellent Bible teachers who will teach you how to apply those practical truths in your life. You will also be provided with a helpful and user-friendly student book to prepare your heart for the lesson each week.
I - Involvement - In our L.I.F.E. groups, we encourage you to ask questions when you need to, and participate in the discussion, if you like. We value your input. But, if you don't want to, you don't have to speak. You can rest assured that our teachers will respect that, and you will never have to read anything, find anything, or quote anything, if you don't want to. L.I.F.E. groups are also an outlet for you to exercise your gifts and abilities as a Substitute Teacher, Activities Director, Care Giver, Prayer Leader, Greeter, Secretary, etc.
F - Friendship - You will meet a lot of friendly people who will make you feel right at home. You will also build godly relationships with other Christians. We all need that. This is crucial to our spiritual growth. L.I.F.E. groups give you the opportunity to develop friendships with people that can last a lifetime. You will be surprised at how quickly your L.I.F.E. group becomes like family.
E - Encouragement - is what Christians do for each other. When times are good, the joy is doubled. When times are bad, the burden is shared with a church family that cares. Time is spent in the group each week sharing prayer requests and praises.
All throughout the week.
