Life Groups are the primary way that we grow in a discipleship community at CrossPoint Church. We meet together regularly for encouragement, friendship, to serve our communities and just do life together. This is the best way to grow a deeper connection in the church.

Below you will find helpful information to learn more about Life Groups:

  • What is a Life Group?

    A Life Group is a gathering of fewer than 20 people who get together regularly for friendships, to grow in faith and to make an impact on their communities. A trained leader and host lead each group, and groups usually meet at the host's home. An average gathering lasts for an hour and a half.

  • How do I sign up for a Life Group?

    There are two ways to join:

    1. Contact the church office (309) 699-6768 and we will place you in a group. 

    2. Contact a group leader yourself from the list above.

  • How often do groups meet?

    Groups meet every week during spring and fall sessions (taking a break in the summer and winter).


    Discussions are based on the previous weekend's message. These "sermon-based" Life Groups are built on a lecture lab model. Imagine the weekend message as a lecture on Christian living, and the Life Group as a lab where you get to roll up your sleeves and discuss how the weekend's message works in real life. Each week there will be a series of Bible passages and questions on the back of the sermon note sheet to study before the meeting . It will usually take 20 to 40 minutes per week to complete the homework.

  • What about child care?

    We leave it up to each Life Group and family to work out their own child care. Sometimes it works best for families in the group to share a sitter on-site or at one member's home, while some members arrange childcare outside of their group.
