Small Groups

Small groups are a way to grow closer to God and other people. Crosspoint’s small groups are groups of people who meet on a weekly basis to study the Bible, discuss a topic, or read a book. Time is also spent each week praying together and sharing what is happening in our daily lives.

Small groups are fluid and new members are always welcome. It is never too late to want to explore a new study or get to know some members of a small group better.

For more information about these studies, including addresses of the meeting sites, contact Jennifer Fitch at (330) 854-0193 or e-mail jfitch@chmca.org. Also, if there is a specific study you are interested in or a topic you would like to explore, contact Jennifer. New studies can always be added.
