Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get into a Life Group?

The best way to find a group is to sign up for our next session of Rooted.  Rooted is a 10-week discipleship experience that will help you get to know the people in your group, and help you build a strong connection.  During the 10 weeks, you will experience the 7 Rhythms of Discipleship that help us to become better followers of Jesus.  These rhythms include personal devotions, prayer, confession, serving, generosity, sharing our story, and celebration.  These rhythms are the foundation of most of our Life Groups.  Rooted is offered 3 times each year, in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.  There is a $50 registration fee to cover the cost of materials and experiences, including a celebration dinner.  Scholarships are available.  Most Rooted Groups become Life Groups after sharing these experiences together.  To be placed on the Rooted interest list or to register, click here.

Is childcare provided?

Childcare is provided for those who sign up for Rooted.  After completing Rooted, when your group becomes a Life Group, each group is responsible for providing their own childcare.  Each group can decide how to handle this issue in the most appropriate way for their group.  We can also offer some help and suggestions if you need it.

Are groups organized by life stages?

We have groups for couples, men, women, and co-eds. Some groups consist of people in the same age range, some are intergenerational. When you register for Rooted, you can list some preferences, and we will try to accommodate them as much as possible.   As your group transitions into a Life Group, you may find that you will want to invite people you meet into your group.  We encourage Life Groups to be open to new people.

Do I have to be a Christian to experience Rooted or be in a Life Group?

No. Our groups are open to everyone regardless of where they are in their journey with Jesus. Feel free to come as you are and ask any questions you may have.

Do I have to attend CrossCity to experience Rooted or be in a Life Group?

While attendance at CrossCity isn’t required to join a group, it certainly helps. It is more difficult to do life together if you don’t attend church. You and the people in your group will socialize together, study and pray together, serve together, and even attend church services together!

What if my Rooted Group or Life Group doesn’t work for me?

If you need to step out of Rooted for any reason, we offer you the ability to join at another time, or to get a refund of the registration fee.  If your Rooted Group does not transition into a Life Group, we can help you join another group that is making the transition.  If these options don’t work for you, there are also many other groups available at CrossCity, and the best way to find out about them is to attend our Group Connect Class.
