Life Groups

Life Groups Overview

Authentic community is central to the vision of Church at the Cross. We believe that as our people sync up together in everyday life, we will fulfill our vision of “helping people and places encounter Jesus.” Find one of our Life Groups near you in our group finder below.
Come join us!

When and Where?

We have Life Groups that meet on Sunday mornings on campus as well as groups that meet throughout the week at homes in the community. Our groups are all similar in format and structure.  Each group meets weekly to discuss the Biblical text from Sunday’s sermon.  All are also open to newcomers.  Most of the offsite groups also share a meal together.

Generally speaking, we encourage newcomers to consider joining a group that gathers near their home.  You can click the group finder tab on the left to identify the group the meets nearest your home.  Once you find the group that might be best for you, click the button to ‘Join’ and the leader will reach out to you.

Life Group Connect


Life Group Connect is an event that we organize a couple of times throughout the year to give you the opportunity to meet some of our Life Group leaders. Leaders gather in the atrium following our Sunday morning gatherings to share the vision for Life Group and answer any questions you might have about Life Groups. Our next LGC is in planning and will be announced when a date is set.

Pattern of Care

Our Life Group gathering model is organized through what we call, Pattern of Care. It is the goal that the Church be equipped to pastor one another through scripture, through struggle and pain, through everyday life. We have created this discipleship model to help frame the time of our Life Groups’ gatherings.
