THIRD SUNDAY RECEPTION
First, our desire is for you to get to know us–and for us to get to know you! Every third Sunday of the month, anyone is invited to join us at a casual meet-and-greet right after the service. The Third Sunday Reception is hosted by one of our small groups, and is a great opportunity to meet the leadership, ask questions, and get to know a few people.
-11:30am every third Sunday of the month | In the Living Room
-No pre-registration necessary | Come-and-go, snacks provided
When you’re ready to learn a little more about Crossing and how to take your next step, Starting Point is the easiest way to find out what we do and how to get involved. This one-session, one-hour long orientation is offered every fourth Sunday of the month at 10am. Yes, that’s during church! But we want to offer this opportunity to as many people as possible. So check in your kids, get your coffee, and join us.
-10am every fourth Sunday of the month | In the Living Room
-No pre-registration necessary | Approximately one hour
If you’re interested in learning more detailed information about Crossing, we invite you to sign up for this orientation class. You’ll learn more about what we believe, our leadership structure, what makes us distinctive, how we do membership, and more about our ministry opportunities.
-Offered on Sunday evenings 4X/year (Feb, May, Aug, Nov)
-Pre-registration encouraged, but not necessary | Approx. two hours
EQUIP | SERVE
Once you’ve discovered Crossing, we want you to be equipped to grow in your faith, and for you to use your gifts to serve others. Many of our equipping opportunities can be found under the Ministries heading, as well as on the Calendar. Many of our opportunities to serve–and who to contact for more information–can be found below:
These people are the face of Crossing. From the parking lot to the front door, the front door to the Welcome Desk, and up the stairs to your seat, it’s the job of Guest Services to make you feel welcome. If you’re interested in welcoming people on Sunday mornings as a part of the Greeting Team, Welcome Desk, or Ushers, please email Mary Montagnon.
If you’re willing to make coffee or snacks every now and then, people will love you. In this ministry, it doesn’t take much to make someone’s Sunday morning a little better. If you’re looking for an easy way to get involved, email Chris Gregory for more information about serving on the Hospitality Team.
CHAIR SET UP
You can thank this team for having chairs out and the Auditorium prepared every week for Sunday services. Men especially, if you’d like to get more involved but don’t have much time, this may be the perfect place for you! You can come in a little early on Sunday mornings, enjoy some camaraderie with other men, and make an immediate impact with no learning curve. If you want to learn more, please email Rob Quanstrom.
If you’re a musician and would like to get in a rotation to lead worship with the band on Sunday mornings, contact Jarred Cain to set up a time to meet.
I’M LOOKING FOR A SMALL GROUP. HOW DO I FIND ONE?
A small group is a great place to get involved. The easiest way to find an existing group is to check out this list. Or head over to the Adults Ministry page to find out more about the ministry, itself. If you might be interested in leading a new small group, please email Steve Adler to get more information.
I HAVEN’T BEEN BAPTIZED. WHY SHOULD I BE?
Baptism is an important step of obedience, but it is not required for salvation. We receive grace and are fully saved the moment we believe in Jesus as the payment for our sin. As a sign, then, that we’ve been united with Jesus in his death and resurrection, Christians should be baptized after belief. Baptism identifies us with Christ and the larger body of professing believers, and symbolizes the washing away of sin and new life we live in Christ.
We schedule baptism services twice per year, both times in the summer, and celebrate baptisms at our outdoor baptismal. It’s a beautiful place out by the creek, where we can set up chairs and have the entire worship service outside. If you have questions about baptism or think you might like to be baptized, please email Rosanna Colombo.
I’D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON. HOW CAN I KEEP UP?
