“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalm 34:18 NLT

Do you enjoy creating a warm atmosphere at church, reaching out to people and helping them feel welcome?
Whether it’s greeting people at our Connections Center, helping a family find a seat, or simply helping someone find their footing in our large church family, we have a spot for people like you to help others connect.
Our Connections ministry rolls out the red carpet to everyone from newcomers to long-time Crossroads family members, as soon as they enter the Crossroads parking lot. We want to let everyone know that they are valued as individuals and loved by Jesus, as we care for them each and every time we gather, and help them “fit in” and find a place in the Crossroads family of faith.

UPCOMING Connections EVENTS
Worship is a language that God gives every believer to help us express our praise to Him and celebrate His greatness.
At Crossroads, we love to worship together. We understand that loving God means worshipping Him – living a life that brings glory to Him and draws us nearer to Jesus. When our community gathers and expresses our sung prayers to God and about Him, we experience His amazing presence and hear His voice. Our worship helps us express who God is, celebrate His greatness, experience His touch, thank Him, and encourage each other with His truth. It’s an all-encompassing way of living. The worship songs we sing are contemporary in style, but range from ancient hymns to the latest choruses, and everything in between. We write many of the songs we sing, and encourage the artists in our church to grow in their songwriting and musicianship.
UPCOMING Worship Arts EVENTS
It’s not always easy to open up to people and share what’s going on in your life. If you need prayer for anything you’re dealing with, your anonymous request will go to a committed team of prayer warriors who love to regularly gather and lift people up to God in prayer. You can submit your prayer requests on our prayer wall.
Life can get so messy that we only pray before a meal or bedtime. But God has so much more for us. He loves it when His kids come together and connect with him in prayer. Our prayer ministry opens our hearts and minds to partner with God as He works in powerful ways.
If you would like to pray with a member of our prayer team, email us at email@example.com. You can also stop by the prayer tables after our in-person services, Sundays at 9 AM and 11 AM. We would love to join you in prayer.

Simply Responding to Jesus, One Step at a Time.
We’re a family of faith, fully engaged, and just like in a real family, every one of us is in a different part of our journey through life with Jesus. If you’re new to your faith in Jesus, or you’ve been walking with Him for what seems like a lifetime, there is always more that He wants to teach us and always new areas where we can grow. We can help you do that! Here are some ways to build the foundation of your faith and grow your understanding of what it means to follow Jesus.
For New Believers
We are so excited that you have made the decision to follow Jesus and we want to personally welcome you to the family of God! Choosing to follow Jesus is the most important decision you have or will ever make. As a new believer, you can expect to have new attitudes and desires. You may need to replace some old habits and patterns with new activities that will help you to grow your new life in Christ. Growth takes time, but it begins—right now—right here by simply responding to Jesus.
Whether this is your first time committing your life to Jesus or a rededication of your life, these steps below will help build a strong and lasting relationship with Jesus on this messy journey in life.
Read the Bible Daily
The Bible will tell you everything you need to know in order to grow in your spiritual life. Because God speaks through His Word, you will get to know Him better and learn what pleases Him. As you obey His Word, you will grow strong and begin to see positive changes in your life. We suggest starting in the New Testament with the Gospel of John and reading straight into Acts.
You can buy a Bible online, download one onto your smart device, pick one up at your local bookstore, or even ask a local church for one.
Here are a few internet links that offer a variety of great ways to explore the Bible:
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges we have as a child of God. Prayer is the way you connect with God. God wants you to know Him personally and wants you to share your heart with Him.
The A.C.T.S method is a good easy way to learn and remember how to pray.
Adore – Start your prayer by telling God how much you adore Him, giving Him recognition for who He is and thank Him for what He has done for you.
Confess – Confession is acknowledging that you have messed up and asking God to forgive you of those sins. The Bible says that if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful to forgive our sins and cleanse us of all that we have done wrong.
Thanks – We have so much to be thankful for in our lives, including our salvation. God’s people should be Joyful and grateful people who spread that wherever they go.
Supplication – Supplication simply means praying for your personal needs and the needs of those around you.
You can’t do this alone! Going to church is the primary way you will grow in your faith. You will meet other believers, develop friendships and find community that will support you on this new journey in life. It is important that you find a local church that teaches the Bible, values worship, evangelism and community. Great churches are in most communities, if you cannot find a church within driving distance, we invite you to join us Sunday Mornings at 9 and 11am and also Wednesday nights at 7pm Pacific Time at crossroadslive.tv.
Every Christian should be baptized, but why? You see, through faith and repentance we experience freedom from the penalty of sin. That’s usually what we mean by “salvation”; being rescued from the penalty of sin this side of Heaven. But the Bible also promises freedom from the power of sin. This freedom is ours as we immerse ourselves in God-centered living. Jesus instituted water baptism as the public proclamation and physical expression of that spiritual immersion.
Crossroads conducts water baptisms every other month. For more info, click the link below.
share your faith
Good news is hard to keep to yourself! Now that you are following Jesus, it’s time to tell people about Him. Don’t hide your faith from people around you, they need Jesus just as much as you needed Jesus. How will they know that Jesus is real if the people around them don’t tell them? A great way to share with them is tell your story. Tell them what Jesus has done for you and what He will do for them.
stay the course
Being a Christian is not always easy, remember that life is messy but Jesus is real. When you became a child of God, you also became an enemy of the devil; and he will try to tempt you into disobeying God. Know that it isn’t a sin to be tempted—even Jesus experienced temptation (read Luke 4:1–3)—but giving in to the temptation is sin. Christians will experience times of testing and trials, but God promises to be with us and give us the strength we need to get through hard times.
For Growing Believers
Because we know that growth happens in groups. No matter your age, gender, marital status, interest, vocation or location, there’s a community group that’s just right for you. This is where you’ll grow closer with brothers and sisters in Christ who say “I’ve got your back”, not “I gotcha!”. To find the group that’s right for you, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or search the link below.
The hardest step is the first step, but you can do all things through Christ. (Philippians 4:13) You’re invited to take the steps of faith one step at a time and learn to simply respond to Jesus with us.
UPCOMING Discipleship EVENTS
Life is messy. Sometimes things happen to prevent us from being able to attend church each week. No matter what happens or how messy your life gets, we want you to know Jesus is real, and we are here for you! Every week, thousands of people join us online because they aren’t able to be here in person. During weekly live services, our hosts are ready to connect with you and support you. Join us online at live.crossroadschurch.net, on Facebook, or on YouTube, and don’t miss out!
If you are interested in volunteering in the internet campus ministry, please email us at email@example.com for more information.

Crossroads Student Ministries takes the God-given passion of our youth and directs it for the glory of God.
At Crossroads, we believe that Jesus is real and that He unites us as a family of faith so we can be fully engaged in learning, praying, encouraging, and equipping each other. We have weekly worship services, small groups with a great group of adult leaders, special events, and much more. It's our passion to help students grow in their relationship with Jesus and have fun while we're doing it. We would love for you to join us!
Part of what makes the Crossroads Students experience meaningful is the opportunity our students get to interact in small groups, face to face, and talk about life. Groups are a place to forge life-long friendships with like-minded youth. Middle school and high school students meet in groups as a part of our Wednesday night program.
Middle School and High School Services
Join us for services 7 PM on Wednesday nights! Students will experience inspiring worship, hear the Word, and connect with their small groups.
We also have a Sunday service exclusively for Students at 11 AM in the Auditorium. Be sure to check it out!

WE EQUIP YOUNG ADULTS WITH TOOLS AND COMMUNITY FOR A DEEPER MORE INTIMATE WALK WITH OUR SAVIOR.
Here at Young Adults, our focus is on our ability to discern the “Voice” and “Will” of God for ourselves. Jesus tells us in John 10:27, ”My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” Our time together at Young Adults is spent learning how to practically hear His voice, be in relationship with Jesus intimately, and follow His leading in our lives.
WE ARE HIS.
Jesus calls us into a life of encouragement, accountability, and love for one another. Our community here at Young Adults is a place where 18-26 year-olds come together to do just that. On our journey to deeper intimacy with Him, we encourage, love, and hold each other accountable to making Christ the Lord of our lives.
YOU BELONG HERE.
We welcome people from all backgrounds. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what your faith background is, you are welcome here and we want you to bring all of your questions.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

Our mission at Crossroads Men’s is to create an environment where all men feel encouraged, equipped and empowered to pursue a continually deepening relationship with Jesus. As we grow together in Jesus, we are committed to creating opportunities for men to explore their spiritual gifts and have a chance to partner together to transform our community and our world.
At Crossroads, we believe growth happens in groups, so at Crossroads Men we worship, study God’s Word together, and then break out into smaller groups. None of us should have to be alone. None of us should have to wonder on our own what it means to be a man, to be a follower of Jesus or to find fulfillment for our deepest longings. Only together, in community, do we learn what it really means to live and love as men of God.
Crossroads Men meet every Wednesday night, in person at 7 PM at Crossroads Community Church. We look forward to seeing you there!
Welcome to Women’s Ministry!
Crossroads Women’s Ministry simply responds to Jesus by helping women to flourish! Scripture tells us that those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God...they shall be fresh and flourishing! (Psalm 92:13-14). What a beautiful promise to us from God!
In order to plant ourselves in God, the roots of our lives must grow down, deep into the things He cares about because He knows when we are nourished we flourish and this is His heart for us! Knowing this Crossroads Women's Ministry is:
Rooted in the Word
We are rooted in the Word of God because Scripture is God-breathed. It’s in the Scriptures that we see that we are fully loved and fully known, and we meet our Creator face-to-face. It is in the Word of God that Jesus teaches us about who He is, who we are, and how we ought to walk with him through life.
Rooted in Prayer
We are rooted in prayer because we know that our prayers not only make us more like Jesus but also are the catalyst to impacting our communities and our world! As women of prayer, we continually use this spiritual practice to grow deeper in community and intentionality.
Rooted in Fellowship
We are rooted in fellowship because Christ-centered friends are life-giving! Surrounding ourselves with other women who are seeking to live their lives for Jesus strengthens and encourages us to do the same. At Women’s Ministry, we love to gather into small groups to share our lives with one another and walk through life together!
Rooted in Local Community
We are rooted in our local community because we are designed by God to go forth and be a blessing to those in need around us. As we give support to others, the world around us sees Jesus in a unique and special way. We love to get plugged in wherever we can!
Where Do We Meet?
Crossroads Women’s Ministry meets in three weekly sessions throughout the year: Fall, Winter, and Spring on Tuesdays at 9:30 am in the Chapel and Wednesdays at 7pm in the Sanctuary. We start each new session with a new study. We begin our time together with worship, followed by a relevant teaching, and then we dive into our small groups where we connect and share our lives with one another. In this process, women are able to create lasting friendships that are centered on Christ.
Please note: We start over with NEW small groups every September so that we can get to know everyone and grow together as a family. If you are joining us mid-year, no problem! It would be our joy to connect you with a small group!
Mothers have a significant calling to bless and care for future generations. While we continuously pour out our time, talent, focus and energy, we also need to care for our souls. Join us for a time of community with others who are on this adventure called motherhood. We'll be gathering monthly starting January 20th from 9:30am-11:30 in the Theater. Mothers of littles 0-5 years old, come build relationships and be encouraged! We can't wait to see you there!
Throughout the year, Crossroads Women’s Ministry provides events for women to connect with the Lord and with other women within our community. These events include socials, conferences, special worship services, mission opportunities, prayer meetings, evening gatherings and much more.
For more information contact us at email@example.com
Do you have a heart to serve in Crossroads Women? We have teams ranging from food and hospitality, to tech, to greeters and more! If you're interested in joining our team, please complete our Volunteer Form and someone will be in touch within 7 days.
“…‘God made them male and female’ from the beginning of creation. ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.” Mark 10:6-9 NLT
Marriage is important to God. At Crossroads, we affirm the biblical covenant of marriage between a man and a woman. As such, we seek to create an environment where married couples and those planning to be married can thrive in their relationship with Jesus and each other. Currently, there are a couple of ways in which we can help. Do you need marital counseling? Are you planning on getting married? If so, follow this link to assistance.
A note about premarital counseling: At Crossroads, pastors do not merely “perform” wedding ceremonies. They are there to prepare you for your marriage day and all the days thereafter. They do this by taking you and your potential spouse through a 2-3 month process of meetings, prayer, and an assessment that equips you for the realities of marriage. We also know that couples often have a desire for a specific pastor to perform their counseling/ceremony. While we will do our best to accommodate these requests, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so because of pastoral workload and scheduling.
Would you like to be part of a small group? If so, follow this link.
In 2022 Crossroads is looking to restart having specific married ministry opportunities. Be sure to watch the bulletin, online, and in-service announcements for more information.
