Small Groups at CrossPoint Church (Summer 2016)

Earlier this year we had more than thirty people attend our first set of small groups! As we reviewed the evaluation forms filled out the last session of each study, we saw a common theme. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed getting to know other people. That's one of the reasons CrossPoint Church exists—we are a place for Meeting Friends! We are here to help people develop meaningful relationships with others who will encourage them in life and support them on their spiritual journey.

With our summer trimester small groups about to begin, you have another opportunity to connect with an interesting and diverse group of people from all walks of life that you may otherwise only say hello to on Sunday. You'll get to hear their stories and learn how to better pray for them. That also means as you share others can begin praying for you more specifically as well. If you are new to CrossPoint or weren't able to participate in a small group last time, we hope you consider joining one of the following studies. Registration opens this Sunday (May 22)!

Understanding and Applying the Bible. This course will help individuals learn how to get the most out of reading and studying the Bible with the goal of getting to know God better. Requires a Bible and a notebook.

Begins: June 13 | Time: Mon. 6-7pm | Duration: 8 weeks | Location: Taylorsville Campus | Leader: Pastor Logan

Staying in Love: Falling in Love Is Easy, Staying in Love Requires a Plan. This DVD led study focuses on what it takes for relationships to endure and is applicable if you've been married for decades, weeks, or are just getting ready to tie the knot. There is a study guide available for this series that costs $9.

Begins: June 15 | Time: Wed. 6-7pm | Duration: 4 weeks | Location: Pastor Logan's House (South Orem) | Leader: Pastor Logan and Grayson Wolf

Restless: Because You Were Made for More. This DVD led women's study will look at the life of Joseph to see how his passions, relationships, and suffering fit into the greater story of God and how the threads of your life can do the same. There is a study guide available for this series that costs $8.

Begins: June 13 | Time: Mon. 6-7pm | Duration: 8 weeks | Location: Taylorsville Campus | Leader: Grayson Wolf

Please Open the Door. Based on coaching provided by our ministry partner TILM, you'll learn how to build relationships and respectfully share your faith with LDS missionaries.

Counter Culture: A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture in a World of Poverty, Same-Sex Marriage, Racism, Sex Slavery, Immigration, Abortion, Persecution, Orphans, and Pornography.

Begins: June 22 | Time: TBD | Duration: Ends August 18 | Location: Varies | Leader: Pastor Jordan and Emily Ledbetter

Begin thinking about which group you'd like to be a part of. While you will have to pay for your own study guide, if you decide you want one (though none of them require it), CrossPoint will place a single order and cover the shipping cost for you.

Be sure to fill out a registration form this Sunday! Which group or groups interest you?
