How Can I Get Connected?

There are 4 main ways to get connected to Cru: (1) Our small groups which we call Gospel Communities (8PM on every Tuesday except for once a month). (2) “CRUsday” (our monthly large group meeting) which is at 8PM on one Tuesday of the month (follow us on Instagram to learn specific dates). (3) Our fun social events. (4) Our social media feeds are always helpful to follow to stay up to date on what we are doing in Cru.

Large Group

  • Our large group meeting happens once a month instead of our normal Tuesday night Gospel Communities. CRUsday is at 8:00 PM in the Barfield Drawing Room (SUB). Follow us on Instagram to learn exact dates!
  • CRUsday is the easiest way to check out what Cru is about and meet the people that make up Cru. We gather for an hour and a half to hear biblical teaching, spend time in worship, and get updated on Cru’s upcoming events.

Social Media

Follow us for all our upcoming activities and events:

Cru Small Groups

Commitment to a small group is one of the best ways to experience community and life the way God intended. Here at Cru we like to think we do these really well! We highly value having fun and walking with Jesus. Find a time and location that works for you! All Gospel Communities meet at 8:00 p.m. on every Tuesday except for our once-a-month, large-group meeting (CRUsday).

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. - Hebrews 10:24-25
