We talk a lot about what divides us, but have you ever wondered what unites us as followers of Jesus across the centuries?
The fundamental confessions of faith found in the Apostles’ Creed have served as our core unifying factors through it all.
Join us this Lent as we discuss what we believe and why it matters.

This Lent we are inviting everyone to be immersed in Adam Hamilton’s Creed as we discuss the Apostles’ Creed during our Lenten sermon series. We talk a lot about what divides us, but have you ever wondered what unites us as followers of Jesus across the centuries?

Our prayer is that we will immerse ourselves in this study at home through daily readings and prayers or in small groups. Books are $12 and can be purchased in Crossroads after worship on Feb. 4, 11, and 18, or during the week in the church office. You can also purchase a digital copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Our hope is for groups of 8-12 people to form organically and meet in various locations – at homes, in restaurants or coffee shops, bookstores, etc. The groups will meet for six weeks for reflective conversation and discussion. Contact Becki Leeland for training and leadership materials if you are interested in leading a group.

  • Join a small group! Below are the groups that have already formed, and you can sign up here. There will be other offerings – keep checking back!
    • Tuesdays, 2 p.m., Panera Bread. Led by Becki Leeland and Weezie Gaines.
    • Mondays, 7 p.m., DC 406. Led by Jack and Beth Rosko.
    • Sundays, 3 p.m., Prayer Room. Led by Hart Merriam and Jack Rowe.
    • Thursdays, 7 p.m., off-site. Led by Kris and Tom Williams.
  • Many Sunday School classes will participate in this study, and all are happy to have visitors! Join the Next Chapters, Young Professions, Seekers, Pilgrims, Feasting on the Word, Mayberry or the Journey. Our youth Sunday Schools will also be participating. Meeting times and locations are listed on our Sunday School page. If your class isn’t listed, check with your leaders to see if your group is participating.
