At Crossroads we're excited to offer yet another way for you to get involved - Interest Groups! Interest Groups are a fun and easy way to connect with others at Crossroads who share a common interest. Interest Groups seek to fulfill the need many of us have for uplifting positive Christian fellowship outside of Sunday mornings.
Interest Groups typically:
Are formed around a common interest, making it easier to get involved and meet others.
Meet 2-4 times per month.
Meet for a limited duration.
Are open for anyone to join at any time.
Open and/or close with prayer and a brief devotional.
Are encouraged to incorporate service projects that align with their interests.
Please contact the group leader with any questions you may have. If you are interested in starting a group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
