WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
A Small Group is a group of people who meet once a week for prayer, Bible study, and relationship building. The purpose of a Small Group is to develop deep and meaningful relationships in an atmosphere where life changing events can transpire. The groups can also use church facilities. Crosswater Community Church is not a church with small groups but a church of small groups. We have groups throughout the surrounding area and we would love to have you join us for a life changing experience.
Crosswater Community Church has 3 small group sessions a year (Winter, Spring and Fall) that typically run 6-8 weeks.
WHY JOIN A SMALL GROUP? ANS: YOU ARE NOT ALONE…!
Life is not meant to be lived alone. God intends for us to experience life together, and that’s why at Crosswater, we encourage you to get into a small group. Groups come in all shapes and sizes – married couples, singles, men’s, women’s, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 – the list goes on! No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ready to dive in? Find a group that fits you, or start one of your own. And never forget, we are never alone because when we commit and trust our lives to God, He never leaves us!

Each group will meet one time each week for approximately one hour to an hour and a half.
