Connections that go beyond the weekly service.

Sunday Workshops

Practical and pertinent.  Sunday Workshops are offered each Sunday during the school year from 9:45-10:45 am.  These sessions are designed for any adult who would like to connect with others in a relaxed learning environment.  No homework or registration needed.  Topics change periodically. 

Beginning January 12:  Balanced


  • Explore faith and the big questions of life in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.  Click here for more info.
  • Next session begins September 18, 2019, 6:15-8:15 pm at Cross Creek.


We believe that there is great joy in doing life together in community. We desire to have life-giving friendships in which we can be encouraged and challenged to be the people God is calling us to be.  One way is to connect with a GROUP.
