Life Groups are the primary way that we grow in community at CrossPoint Church. We meet together regularly in homes for fellowship, to grow in our faith and to serve our communities. If you want to get plugged into the church community, the best way to do it is through a Life Group!

  • What is a Life Group?

    A Life Group is a gathering of about 10-14 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, followed by light refreshments.

  • How do I sign up for a Life Group?

    There are two ways to join:

    1. Contact the church or one of the life group leaders. 

    2. Have us place you in a group.

  • How often do groups meet?

    Groups meet every week during 10-week quarters. We have Fall, Winter & Spring quarters (taking a break in the summer). At the end of each quarter, you have the option of staying in the same group, trying a new group or even taking a break. Many groups stay together throughout the entire year. Most groups take a summer break from June through August.


    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.
