Community #3

Crossroads is a transforming community that offers a series of retreats once a quarter allowing  you to focus on knowing, discovering and building a deeper spiritual relationship. Senior Pastors Scott and Clare Loughrige will lead you through practices that include:

  • understanding transformation within a Christ-centered journey
  • developing spiritual practices and personal rhythms that bring you closer to God
  • experiencing the love of Christ through a transforming community

 

 
There are 8,760 hours in a year.

Why not devote 60 of them
to growing closer to God?

Each retreat can either stand alone or you can commit to a two-year journey with each retreat building upon the previous sessions. Retreats are themed and participants learn practical direction on practicing spiritual disciplines both personally and in community. The 2-year community focuses on living the vision of Romans 12:2: "Be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect," the sacred commitment of "arranging our lives for spiritual transformation so we can discern and do the will of God," and a shared definition of "spiritual transformation: the process by which Christ is formed in us for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others."
Our retreats use the Sacred Rhythms curriculum written by Ruth Haley Barton, coupled with Clare and Scott's more than 14 years of experience with the Transforming Center. CCM is a part of the Transforming church Network, a community of churches that believes transformation is central to the Gospel.

In the 24 years the Loughriges have served in full-time pastoral ministry, they see this transformational model as being graced for helping individuals be "formed into the image of Christ."

Retreat Opportunities include:
  • Teaching sessions on the personal and relational aspects of each theme
  • Practical guidance for practicing spiritual disciplines personally
  • Practical guidance for practicing spiritual disciplines in community (for 2-Year Community option)
  • Guidance for meeting with a spiritual friend (for 2-Year Community option)
