Small Groups

Join Us!

Crossroads has existing groups which are always open to new members and are described below.

We encourage you to think about a small group that might fit where you are right now. Whether you decide to join an existing group or start a new one we want to encourage you to see the value and power of meeting with others to speak out loud your spirituality, to talk about your faith, to listen to others to better understand where they are, and where they are in their faith.

Our Small Groups

We have a limited number of books for purchase that will be available on Sundays 2/19 and 2/26. These books will cost $15. You are also welcome to purchase the book online. There is an electronic version as well.

The Caleb Club

The Caleb Club- Health & Fitness Ministry

The Caleb Club is a ministry that focuses on health, food, and fitness in a God-honoring way. “Why Caleb?” you might ask. Well, in the Old Testament, Caleb was one of the spies sent by Moses on a mission to take the promised land. Along with Joshua, he took the land at the ripe old age of 85, when he was just as strong as he was in his 40s!

This ministry is led by Rudy Fenner and the story of Caleb for him was life-changing. The words confirmed to him his belief in how our lives should look. His cancer diagnosis this spring launched him from thought to action. God doesn’t cause adversity, but he uses it to guide us to our purpose. His purpose is creating caring communities – Caleb Clubs – where we all strive to be like Caleb, and live in excellence, being physically strong and vigorous, to an old age.

At Crossroads, we have guest speakers, activities, and a lot of fun together. We hope that we all live just like Caleb, and we invite YOU to join us!

The Caleb Club includes:

  • Health education sessions
  • Nutrition discussions, demonstrations and tastings
  • Fitness introduction sessions to include strength, cardio, flexibility and yoga
  • Fitness walks (indoor and outdoor)
  • Introduction to Blue Zones, and more!

To join the email list and receive specific information about upcoming sessions, contact Robin Fenner,
