What does group life look like at Crawford Avenue?

At Crawford Avenue, our mission as a church is to glorify God by making disciples who enjoy, live, and proclaim the Gospel. We do that primarily in two ways: through gathered worship on Sunday morning and through Community Groups [CGs].


This semester, beginning September 2019, we’re expanding our Community Group ministry to include a time for Bible Study on Sunday mornings. This means that we’ll continue to meet in homes across the CSRA for fellowship, prayer, and outreach throughout the week, but on Sunday mornings, we’ll have time set aside for studying Scripture.


During the week we encourage you to live life together like the early church, who devoted themselves to meeting together for worship and who broke bread from house to house, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. By God’s grace, through these simple rhythms of life together, Scripture says that people were being added to their number daily.


If we are to love our neighbor as Jesus commanded us, at the very least, we should make an effort to know our neighbors. Jesus spent a lot of time eating with people, and we’re proposing that you do the same. Ask your neighbors over for dinner. Care for them. Love them. And share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. As you get to know the neighbors around you, invite them to your Community Group where you’ll spend more time together, sharing life’s joys and sorrows, and praying for one another. When you invite your neighbors to join you on Sunday morning for Bible Study Cohort, they’ll already have a group of people they’ve come to know over the dinner table.


The time we have together on Sunday will be a continuation of the relationships we’ve been developing over time in our CGs. We’ll meet from 9:00am-10:00am, giving us plenty of time to gather for worship at 10:30am. Your CG will meet together with 2-3 other groups for what we’re calling “cohorts.” During this hour you’ll study the Word and get to spend time with people from other groups from semester to semester.


You’ll need to sign-up for your CG every semester. We encourage you to try to be in the same group when possible, but it’s also a good time to try another group that works better for you and your family.


How should I pick a group?

We encourage you to find a Community Group that is close to you so that you can experience the benefits of Christ's church. Our groups are local and diverse; in other words, we don't divide people by age, hobby, income, or stage of life. Rather, we encourage diverse people from the same neighborhood to love each other well and to love their neighborhood well. Each group seeks to be of benefit to each other and to their community. Check out the map below to see which groups are close to you; further information about each group is available beneath the map.


You are welcome to pick a group far away from you, but it will either mean lots of driving or limited interaction. That being said, we’d rather you have some community than none at all; if that works best for you, go for it!
