Small groups are the lifeblood of Crystal Valley. They exist to create an atmosphere where you share the gospel and share your life with others in order to develop deep caring relationships that encourage, comfort, and urge others toward a closer relationship with Jesus—an atmosphere that ultimately develops each member to grow from a spiritual infant to a spiritual parent.

There is a small group that fits your life stage. If you would like to join a small group, contact Bailey Horn (cvmcBaileyH@gmail.com), call 574-318-7173, or fill out the form below.
