2020 has been hard on everyone. A journey is a chance to reconnect, learn, and grow together. As far as getting back to some sort of rhythm, it might just be the best thing you do all year.Sign up for the Journey
Think less Bible Study and more dinner party. Other people in a similar stage of life asking similar questions. Not to over promise, but a lot of people around Crossroads make new, life-long friends in these things. #besties.
Groups will meet via Zoom from the comfort of your couch. Or in person (10 or less) based on the consensus of the group and everyone abiding by COVID-19 social distancing standards. Back deck and fire pits are recommended.
Some select sites will be reopening October 4th. Get all the details at crossroads.net/reopen.
$Free.99. To get the most of the journey be prepared to set aside five 1-hour blocks of time to meet with your group. Group is where the magic happens, trust us.
Heck yes. All are welcome, no matter where you fall on the spiritual spectrum. Come with an open mind and bring your questions, it’ll be great.
There are two ways to participate in a group. Do the Journey with your existing group using the group guide in the app. Or, if you don’t currently participate in a group, you will fill out a brief form with your preferences and you will be matched with others to create a new group. Sign up using the form above to be notified when group sign-ups begin.
For the Good God Journey, group content can be facilitated by anyone in the group. The prompts in the Group Guide will be simple for everyone to follow along, no host needed.
Invite people to do the Journey with you. Maybe it’s your current group, co-workers, neighbors, family, and friends. Create your group in the Group Tool to invite them in.
If you want to be one, let us know here. We’ll get you set up for the Journey as a leader, and you can either invite people to do it with you, or get placed in a group to meet people.
No problem, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to help get you in a group that works for you.
You should receive an email in the coming weeks with information about your group. If for some reason nothing comes through, email email@example.com.
We are encouraging everyone to start the journey at the same time. If you are a few days late to the party, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to pair you up.
Great! Do the journey with your current group, you're all set to start October 3. If your group is larger, we suggest breaking up into groups of 8-10 people for the sake of time. If you have space, invite your friends to join.
Great. If you already know who you’re doing the Journey with, those leaders will be able to add you to their group. If you fill out the form to be placed in a group, you will only be placed in one group.
Your group will meet together every week for 5 weeks (starting after the first weekend services on Oct 3/4). You’ll need the Crossroads Anywhere app (Apple & Google) on your phone as it will include your individual and group guide. Simply open up the Group Guide level in the app guide and do what it says. It will guide the conversation. So simple.
Nope. Just bait, no switch.
Yep! There will be a Kids' Club at Home episode for each week of the Journey on crossroads.net/kidsclub. (You can also watch on YouTube by clicking on the current episode.) Make sure to follow the Kids' Club Facebook page for ideas for challenges to do as a family.
6th-12th graders can get special students-only Journey content and join an S|M Journey group with their site at crossroads.net/studentministry. Sorry, parents, no olds allowed.
The group discussion will take about an hour. If you have a larger group, or your group is extra chatty, it may take up to 90 minutes. The individual work is totally up to you and at your pace. It will probably take about an hour each week and you’ll want to finish it up before you meet with your group.
Yep. Our weekend messages are posted online at crossroads.net/watch and in the app, so you can catch up if you have to miss. The weekend experience is a large component of the journey, but it is just one of three important components. The weekend message, individual challenges, and group discussion are all integrated so you’ll have the best experience participating in all of them by first watching service, then doing the individual prompts in the app, followed by meeting with your group.
We encourage you to try really, really hard to make it to all the meetings...group time is the most impactful part of the journey. But of course we know that life happens. Just let your group know in advance when you won’t be able to attend.
You’ll need the Crossroads app (Apple & Google). It’s available anywhere apps are, search Crossroads Anywhere. You’ll also need a computer to join your Zoom call. You’ll also need a shirt, don’t be the guy on the Zoom call naked.
iOS device requirements are - 11.0 - 14
Android Requirements - 6.0 - 10
