WHAT DOES GROUP LIFE LOOK LIKE?

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].


During the week, we meet at homes and parks across the CSRA for fellowship, prayer, and outreach. These groups are the primary places where we connect with one another in the church, and develop friendships in a deeper way than is possible on Sunday mornings alone. 


CGs operate on a semester schedule (September - December in the Fall, and February - May in the Spring). You need to sign-up for your CG every semester. We encourage you to try to be in the same group when possible, but the start of a new semester is also a good time to switch groups if you need to find a 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!


What about COVID?

As COVID-19 continues, we feel more than ever the need for friendships and Christian camaraderie -- some of the primary reasons CGs exist! We also want to be thoughtful in how we gather with others at this time.


We're continuing to ask all groups to abide by our Wellness Policy as a way to care for one another. Beyond that, we've given each CG the freedom to navigate these issues in the way that works best for their group. Some CGs are meeting outdoors, others by Zoom, and others indoors. We are not going to resume Sunday morning Cohorts just yet. We encourage you to consider these things when selecting a group. Curious how a CG is approaching COVID? Feel free to email the group leader and ask!
