Small Groups

Community Happens in Circles, Not Rows

Here at Crosswind, we believe that relationships play an important role in growing as a Christian. We are not just on our own journey to follow Jesus; we recognize that God has given us companions for that journey. Together we can laugh, cry, sweat, snack, learn, play, fail, succeed, and grow - not on our own, but together. That's called community, and we encourage everyone to get involved in one of our various Small Groups.

Small groups are 8-12 people that meet together routinely (for about 12 weeks at a time) in homes or at the church. Through these groups, we build new relationships while focusing on a particular area of interest or study. Each semester, we offer numerous topics or book studies to choose from. We try our best to make sure that there’s something for everyone!

What is a Freedom Group?

During a 13-week Small Group semester, Freedom Groups gather weekly to discuss the Freedom Small Group curriculum, which is designed to equip you to live the victorious and abundant life Christ came to give you. Freedom Groups build on the foundation of your faith in Christ to help you embrace the truth of God’s Word as it relates to your worldview, your past, your sin, your personal value to God, and your purpose in His Kingdom. This group will help you remove every obstacle to intimacy with God and allow you to walk in true freedom.

Freedom Groups are offered twice a year here at Crosswind. Our small group semesters run February-May and September-December. Each participant in a Freedom Group will need to purchase a workbook for $10 at the first meeting.

The Freedom Curriculum Focuses on Six Areas of Personal Growth:

1. Living in the "Tree of Life"

God never wanted us to pursue dead religion; His heart is for us to know Him personally and live in our true identity as His children. You will learn what it means to live in the “Tree of Life” and how a simple but powerful perspective shift can impact every area of your life.

2. Walking in the Spirit

The Bible talks about the Spirit-led life, but this kind of living can feel hard to reach. Through Freedom, you will learn the principles of spiritual order and how feeding your spirit over your emotions and flesh is key to walking in the Spirit.

3. Surrendering to Jesus

God calls us to love and serve Him above all else, and when we do, we see how we can grow in our purpose, live forgiven and forgive others, and receive His blessings. Freedom will help you learn how to surrender to Jesus and live in freedom daily.

4. Speaking Words of Life

Our words have power, and by learning to speak words of life that line up with God’s Word, your words can change your environment and relationships and break the power of the enemy’s words in your life.

5. Becoming a Vessel God Can Use

God has a unique plan and purpose for our lives, but we also have an enemy who is trying to keep us from fulfilling this purpose. In your Freedom Group, you will learn how to stand in the authority of Jesus to overcome sin and the enemy’s schemes as you allow God to use your life for His glory.

Living as a Worshipper

We all worship something. Freedom will help you learn how to daily direct your worship to God and discover how it can influence the heart of everything you do.

Freedom Conference

At the end of the Small Groups semester, there is a Freedom Conference that every Freedom Group member is encouraged to attend. The Freedom Conference focuses on solidifying what you learned in Freedom by helping you take next steps to overcome your past and lay a foundation for walking in daily freedom. The cost to attend the conference is $60 and exact times, dates, and registration information will be given to you by your Freedom Group leader.
