Join with a bunch of guys around the fire in the Rockford area on the 2nd Friday of the month! Fireside Gatherings are for any guys over the age of 18, who desire to grow in their faith in a laid back, and welcoming atmosphere where they are free to be themselves. Typically, we will spend the first little while catching up with friends and getting to know any newcomers while enjoying some good food. Then one of our Crossroads guys will share some of their story and give us some questions and ideas to kick around. Conversations will generally center around the lessons learned through our experiences of walking as Jesus followers in everyday life.
Real stories, real guys, real life…
We also believe Fireside gives us a chance to encourage and support any guys who are in the midst of hard stuff, so every gathering has a time for prayer and coming around guys who may be feeling it. If you are struggling, please come and find this to be a place with no judgement and a lot of concern for your heart.
Camp chair, beverage of choice (we typically have coffee, especially during the cold months). Food is provided! Dress appropriately! We hope you experience some authentic and meaningful community at Fireside. Some guys may choose to puff on something around the fire or consume an adult beverage and some guys don’t. We feel that is just fine. We simply ask everyone to be responsible with how much alcohol they consume and limit it to a couple. Feel free to be yourself with this.
