 NEW AROUND THESE PARTS? 

 
Here’s what you can expect to find during your first visit to the CrossRoads!
 
A FRIENDLY AND CASUAL SERVICE: Here at the CrossRoads, we’ll make sure the first face you see when you arrive has a smile on it. Whether you need childcare or are looking for a cup of coffee, a greeter will be close by to help you with what you need.
 
And don’t worry about what to wear. We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear.  So, dress casually and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our services.  You’ll enjoy our live band and the modern music.  And the practical messages by our pastor, Rich Chasse, will help you deal with real life issues.  We’ll even give you a handy outline with a place for taking notes.  What you learn on Sunday, you’ll be able to use during the week!
A SAFE PLACE FOR LITTLE ONES: Our nursery and toddler ministry provides a safe and loving environment for children, birth through three years of age.  The care providers, who all have been given appropriate background checks, give special attention to each child who is entrusted to them during the worship services.  The loving care and attention provided helps your children feel that church is a happy place where they are made to feel loved and secure.
 
A FUN PLACE FOR KIDS: Every Sunday when your kids arrive, they’ll be welcomed to a friendly and fun place where they’ll learn more about God’s love and His plan for their lives.  Through interactive teaching, small group discussion, games, crafts, and even the snack time — kids have a great time learning to apply biblical truths to their lives.
 
Come check us out — Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.!

  OUR CURRENT SERMON SERIES  

questions&answers2016
 
These are the questions people in our church have asked, and we’re going to answer them. Pastor Rich is building sermons around each question and then allowing time for Q & A after each message. Below you will see the tentative schedule for the questions listed:
 
August 7 – Why do people dispute what is written in the Bible?
Why doesn’t science accept what is written in the Bible?

August 14 – Is spiritual warfare real or the stuff of fiction novels?
Are there demons in the world? Can people be possessed?

August 21 – How should we view homosexuals and/or same sex
attraction and relationships? What about gay marriage?

August 28 – What is the role of the Holy Spirit? Should we pray to the
Holy Spirit; how do we when the Holy Spirit is speaking?
 
Come check us out the CrossRoads — our Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:00 a.m.  FYI — the worship service for Sunday, August 7 is scheduled as an outdoor service.

3 Soul-Settling Scriptures for When Your Heart Is Troubled

I want to walk in faith.  And not worry so much.

To be unshaken by my present circumstances and undaunted by today’s challenges.

And yet here I find myself troubled in spirit and unsettled in my soul.

5 Things Happy Couples Do Well

Things are going well, but we’re more like business partners than husband and wife. We keep it together but it’s like we’re hardly even friends anymore.

Life can turn into a grind, even for a great marriage.

Our fast-paced lives are perfectly capable of edging out every good intention we used to have.

When Someone’s Missing from Church

With the summer months comes lots of activities, travel, vacations and more.  As the pastor of a congregation where many families love to camp, travel, and just enjoy the outdoors, I have learned to not get stressed out over the idea that people will often be gone during the summer months.  There are many benefits for family, and relationships in general, when people have the opportunity to get away and spend quality time together.

 GET CONNECTED IN MINISTRY 

 
Higher & Under Ground
Youth Ministry

Higher Ground is for students in High School. Under Ground is for Middle School students. There’s food, games, music, and a Bible lesson. Our youth group will be meeting on Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. starting this September. Special events will be planned during summer months. Joe and Staci Wood, our youth group leaders, head this ministry.

Life Groups
 
Life Groups at the CrossRoads are friendly, casual groups of adults who connect with others to grow in their faith and schedule in some good times too — without feeling like you’ve signed up for a lifetime commitment.  Most group’s Bible studies are based on the topics covered during the previous Sunday’s sermon.  We have groups meeting on different days, in different locations, and at different times (most groups take the Summer off).  Another Life Group option is our CrossRoads Bible Academy, taught by Pastor Rich, on Monday evenings during the school year. So checkout a Life Group and get plugged into a time of growth and fellowship!
 
Contact Pastor Tom or Rich or call the office at 757-2857 for details about what groups are available or about starting a new group. 
CrossRoads Kids
 
After our time of worship in song, we offer Quest Kids Children’s Church, which is a great program for kids! Quest Kids meets downstairs and is for kids K-5th grade. Kids are dismissed for Quest Kids after our time of singing and before the sermon in our worship service.
 
Our preschool (for kids age 3 through pre-K) program is held during the entire worship service and is located downstairs.  We also offer a great nursery for babies and toddlers located downstairs which are available during the whole service.
Worship Ministry
 
Our worship ministry is led by Tom Noteware.
Practices are usually held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m.
 
If you’d like to get involved, contact Tom or the church office.
 

 OUR STRATEGY — IN A NUTSHELL  

GatherGrowGoOur goal is to be a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ.  We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ gives our lives new direction, purpose, and meaning.  Jesus said, “I have come in order that you might have life — life in all its fullness.” That’s what the people of the CrossRoads have found to be true
 
Here at the CrossRoads, our strategy for your spiritual growth is simple – just focus on three things – Gather , Grow & Go!  
That’s it.  If you would commit to these three simple steps, we believe you will find yourself well on the way to an ever growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
 
As CrossRoads Church grows, it is our desire to see that we keep that family atmosphere we all love and appreciate.  You’re invited to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church.
