This Week at CrossWinds Church

The Creed | Week One
When it comes to Christianity, there are many different approaches, understandings and interpretations of doctrine. And at CrossWinds, we’re ok with that. There are plenty of things where we agree to disagree. But there are a number of belief structures that are essential to the Christian faith. Join us in the upcoming series, The Creed: A Vocabulary of Faith as we explore the core beliefs that unite us.
Knowing Your Design
July 11 & 18 | 6:30-8:30
Did you know that you were designed for a unique purpose? God has wired you with unique gifts and passions to serve others in the church community. You are uniquely designed to serve Him in ways that no one else can. As people learn about their gifts and passions and use them to serve the body of Christ, both the servant and the church move toward becoming all God intended them to be. This class is designed to help you explore your spiritual gifts, passions, and personal style so that you can discover your unique DESIGN for an eternal impact. Please register online HERE. For more details, please contact Jodie Tey.

LEVEL-UP (4th - 5th grade)
Sundays @ 9am & 12pm
Visit us online or contact Kim Bonilla
Level-Up helps 4th and 5th graders to take their next steps forward as disciples of Jesus. Our goal is to prepare them for life as a student after elementary school. We do this by challenging them and raising the bar relationally and theologically. These young "tweens" are more than capable of drawing closer to Christ and to each other in community prior to their jr. high days. Level-Up will serve to supercharge their faith and their friendships moving forward.
