Burger Quest 

Caleb Gilmore and Steve Haas will be leading an expedition across Knoxville to find the best burger in town. We will meet on Friday nights at 6:30pm. We’ll rank each burger by different criteria and see which burger reigns supreme! Stops will include Abridged, Stock and Barrel, Inskip Grill and others! Group will start May 10th and meet for 6 weeks. Email if you are interested.

Mountain Bikes 

Have a mountain bike laying around you’d like to use more? Or maybe you ride but would love to explore new trails around town. Maybe you ride all the time but want new riding partners! In any case, we’ll explore different riding areas around town to showcase what the Knoxville mountain biking scene has to offer. All skill levels are welcome, all you need is a mountain mike’s in good working order. We can cater the ride to those who show up. Email Jon Hathaway at to join in.  


Join us once a week we’ll meet for a fun game of pickleball. Skill levels will vary so it will be less serious, but still be a great time of exercise and friendly competition. Depending on the group’s availability, we’ll decide the times, days, and location. Email Melaney at if you are interested.

Ongoing Groups/Connection Opportunities

4th-5th Grade Group
Rebecca will be leading a group on Wednesdays from 6-7:30pm for our 4th-5th graders beginning Wednesday January 31st. The group will meet outside 4 Market Square then go up to the Crossings offices for a short lesson/reflection time, out for ice cream, play games, etc. Contact: Rebecca at

Cave – Table – Road
Cave-Table Road is a six-month cohort that meets to engage the monastic movements of spiritual formation (cave), community/hospitality (table), and a way of being sent into the contexts we find ourselves in (road). Our next Cave-Table-Road cohort will begin in September 2024.

The Skinny and Greenhouse
Greenhouse is a bi-annual gathering that happens on a Saturday morning for anyone involved in leadership, groups, service, etc. in our community – or anyone who is interested in something like that. It is called “Greenhouse” because it is a place we protect, experiment, pray, ask questions, innovate, and dream about how God might be calling our community to flourish. Our next Greenhouse will be at 9:30am on Saturday September 7, 2024.

The Skinny is a Sunday lunch hosted for anyone new to Crossings or interested in learning about who we are, what we believe, value, and dream about— and how we operate as a faith community. This is not a “membership class” or any kind of formal commitment (we don’t really have those). It is simply a chance for you to get to know Crossings, our staff, and ask whatever questions you might have. Our next Skinny will be at 11:20am on Sunday August 25, 2024.

Justice Group

Crossings Justice Group has been meeting for over six years and has created a safe place to dialogue about God’s heart for the poor, marginalized, and oppressed. The group meets to process various matters of injustice and ways to participate in different justice initiatives around Knoxville. This summer the group is working on voter registration/voting rights. The group will also be taking a Civil Rights Tour to Selma, Birmingham, and Montgomery this Summer on August 2nd-4th. Contact: Molly at 

This groups is for folks to build connection, explore faith together, and offer support.

StuCo (6th-12th grade)
Our students meet on Sunday evenings (during the North gathering) in a small-group setting where they play games, connect, study, pray, and wrestle with their big questions about life and faith. Throughout the year they have fire pits, game nights, and lots of snacks. The last Sunday each month, the students participate in the North gathering by serving in various ways. The first Wednesday of each month our students gather at our offices Downtown to connect, play games, or get ice cream. Contact: Austin Greco at

Thursday Morning Book Club
For almost a decade, a revolving door of folks have met at 7:30 AM to read and discuss a variety of books. The group currently meets on Thursday mornings at Rami’s Cafe in North Knoxville.

Outside of these groups, we have various home groups that meet together on a more regular, long-term basis to share about their lives, study, pray for one another, etc. Contact if you’d like to have a conversation about participating in a home group.
