Women's Ministry

The Women's Ministry of Crossroads Fellowship exists to encourage and support ladies - no matter what season or circumstance - to become fully devoted followers of Christ. We believe this happens best when we Connect to one another and Grow in Christ; as well as Serve in the church and the community together. By doing this, we find a sense of belonging to God and one another, enabling us to become all we are in Christ, and equipping us to bless others with love, grace and the truth of Jesus Christ!

    Women's Small Groups

    Women are equipped within the context of Biblical community in our Women's Small Groups. These groups meet throughout our community at various times throughout the week and focus on Connecting, Growing, Serving, Praying and Giving together.

    Each group is uniquely designed, according to the passions and gifts of the leader. Some groups may meet weekly for Bible study, while others may meet twice monthly to serve and connect with a devotion over lunch. Regardless, each group's goal is the same — to help you become a fully devoted woman of God!

    Use our Group Finder Tool to find a group:

    Would you like to host or lead a small group?
    Women's Director Kristin Gruber provides leadership and small group training for those who are interested. Contact Kristin for more information.

    CBS - Community Bible Study

    Community Bible Study (CBS)

    Thursdays
    Virtual

    Community Bible Study (CBS) provides individual study, small group discussions, effective teaching and fellowship. From September through May, CBS offers morning classes for women and children. CBS is open to women of all ages and denominations.


    This year at CBS we will delve into the New Testament book of John. John writes his gospel as one of Jesus' closest friends. John was with Jesus at the height of his ministry and as a result he presents his gospel from the perspective of an eyewitness and devoted follower. Through supportive, virtual small group Zoom discussion and applicable teaching, we will get to know Jesus as "God in 3-D" and learn about the abundant life that Christ promises. 

    Come join us virtually on Thursdays as we are refreshed and transformed by the living word of God. Small groups will be available morning, afternoon, or evening and CBS begins on Thursday, September 10th.


    Registration & Fees
    To register for CBS go to raleigh.cbsclass.org
    Registration fees are $35 per adult / $10 for children.
