WHAT ARE LIFE GROUPS

Small Groups at Crossroads provide an atmosphere of  learning about God while getting to know others. We grow in the knowledge of Jesus and encourage each other to live it out. Small groups are offered for the Fall and Spring semesters with a church-wide small group at the beginning of the year. Our offerings include such topics as worldview, marriage, family, parenting, finances, prayer, leadership, etc.

The Return of Christ

Tony & Julie LaManna

This study focuses on Matthew 24-25 (“Olivet Discourse”), the book of Daniel, and the Book of Revelation. This topic can be emotional for many, therefore no particular singular view will be presented. Our prayer is that we will not be like the Pharisees who Christ admonished for not knowing the time of His return, but that we will become like the Berean’s, who with great eagerness, would welcome the study of the Blessed Hope. For in this day this age that we’re in, it is more important than ever to know and understand the return of Jesus Christ. This 5-week study begins Tuesday, September 29th at 6:30pm.
