Discipleship Groups

"“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”  Mt 4:19.

Another part of our faith journey is knowing God's word.  At Crossroads we provide a number of opportunities to study scripture though discipleship groups, Women's Bible studies, Wednesday night studies, special classes, and seminars. 

Wednesday Evenings

Wednesday Night Teaching - Focusing on teachings from scripture, co-leaders Curtis Booher, Clint Andrews, and Rich Aubrey will help you discover how to make personal discipleship part of your life. This class is for anyone at any stage of their faith journey. This class meets in the Lower Auditorium.  

Women's Bible Study -"All Things New" by Kelly Minter - Explore the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.. This class meets in the Lobby Classroom and is led by Sandy Carty. 

Financial Peace University - What is Financial Peace University? We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions, and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. Come to the first class for free! Led by Sherry and Alan Lewis, this class meets in Room 108.  This class will be back in fall of 2017.

Men's Bible Study - What if you believed—truly believed with all confidence that God is with you? What would you risk if you were certain God is victorious? You can know, treasure, and rest in His promises in every circumstance. You can cling to His assurances and walk by faith while you wait for Him to work. So what exactly does He promise? In this topical study, James MacDonald explores five great and precious promises of God. Enter into this study with anticipation and faith that the God who makes these promises is faithful and always true. If you plan to attend, please contact Jim McGriff at jim.mcgriff@gmail.com or 423-963-0945. Materials will be ordered August 19th. This class meets in Room 110.
