At Citizens Church, we seek to see the church grow larger and smaller at the same time. CREWS have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us.

Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why CREWS exist—to make these life-changing relationships accessible to you.

LEAD A CREW

Leading a CREW isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Leading a group is simple— you pick the time and location & we’ll give you the essential tools you need to make your CREW is successful through ongoing coaching and Leadership Training. Lives are changed one season at a time by moving forward one step at a time. As a CREW Leader, you get to play an important role in that process.

JOIN A CREW

Whether it’s through sermon discussion, serving your neighbors and city, or sharing a common interest in a hobby or sport, we encourage everyone to join a CREW and begin growing in their relationship with God and making some new friends.

COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT HAPPENS AT A CREW MEETING?

You’ve probably seen CREWS meeting and not even realized it. A CREW looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book of the Bible or topic of interest. At its core, a CREW is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in CREWS, you can expect to create the kinds of friendships that will help you walk in everything God has for your life.

HOW OFTEN DOES A CREW MEET?

Our CREWS meet for four quarters a year—winter, spring, summer, and fall. During the quarter, most groups meet once a week. CREWS are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

WHERE DO CREWS MEET?

CREWS meet locations all throughout the Inland Empire.

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL CREW STAY TOGETHER?

Most CREWS meet for a quarter. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the quarter format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive quarters, but new members are always welcome.

IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?

Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST CREW I TRY?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple of different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy for finding success in small groups is not to give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
