Life is better together
NEW TO MIDDLE TENNESSEE?
Join one of our New to Town Groups!
You can’t become the best version of yourself, by yourself; that’s where Groups come in!
We’re here to help you find people you enjoy spending time with, who will encourage you to grow spiritually. We’ve seen that those who are willing to be intentional in finding a spiritual community have gained life-long friendships and have grown substantially in their faith.
Groups meet in-person throughout Middle Tennessee or online. We have a range of different groups, meeting on different days and at different frequencies. Groups tend to be made up of around ten individuals; some are built around going deeper in faith, others are more geared toward community and simply sharing an activity with others.

What’s life in a group like?
I moved to Nashville in 2019 and found Cross Point quickly after; it has been my favorite part about living in Nashville, but I felt like I needed community and decided to join a group. It was the absolute best thing I could have done. Our group is so open, honest and compassionate. Everyone is heard and it is a space where love, and grace is shown every week. I’ve created amazing friendships and having a consistent community is so crucial to my faith. I can’t believe how God has used this group to grow me closer to Him.
A member of our group had recently been through a divorce; we had prayed and she believed God would heal her marriage – but when this didn’t happen, she felt let down. One of the lyrics we often sing on Sundays says; “You’ve never failed me” – but she felt like she couldn’t sing that line honestly. It opened up an opportunity for us to discuss prayer when we’re upset and how those honest prayers are so important for a healthy relationship with God. I love how a group allows a space to be open and honest about our struggles.
We began our group as a Dinner Group to build community, but we then started adding studies to our time. I love that our relationships have grown stronger and stronger as life events have unfolded and burdens have been shared. Our group has endured health related issues together, major life challenges, career, family and marriage burdens. It’s amazing to see how God has brought us exactly what we were looking for in a group: like-minded friends to share life with.
