Is the wake-commute-work-commute-ferry the kids around-go to bed routine wearing you down? Can you remember the last time that you climbed a flight of stairs and did not have to pause to catch your breath? If the answers are “yes” and “I can hardly remember”, then please join us for fellowship and exercise on Wednesday nights at 8pm in the ROC. No prior basketball experience is necessary. We are a very laid back group who just likes to get out of the house and play some ball!

Crossroads is a small group at Centreville United Methodist Church. We are a mix of adults, primarily in our thirties and forties. We bring together many perspectives: male and female, single and married, couples and families, natives and transplants, lifelong Methodists and newer believers, and a varied background of educational, professional and life experiences. Despite our differences, we are all seeking something bigger in our busy lives. Crossroads helps keep us on a faith-focused path and deepens our relationship with Jesus Christ. Through a monthly mix of Bible and book studies, mission projects and family-friendly fellowship activities, we have a bond of friendship that holds each other in prayer during the ups and downs of our daily lives.
