The Church at the Crossing

Fall/Winter Special Events

Don't be a spectator! Come join the fun of being in ministry, in teamwork, and in the heart of what's happening!

Sunday, August 22 is the fall kickoff for all ministries at Church at the Crossing. We invite you to find the enjoyment of being a part of a group that will nourish your spirit and connect you with other Christians. We know you'll find ways to serve -- and most of all we want you to have a relationship with Jesus Christ that is real and personal. Here are some of the things we have planned! As you will soon see, there's something for everyone...every age...and virtually every day of the week! Please call the church offices if you have any questions about any of these ministries and activities...because we want to help you "Get in the Game!"
Neue Formel!
