This Week at CrossWinds Church
9:00AM 10:30AM 12:00PM
The Creed | Week Five
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.
Prayer Path Party
The property here at CrossWinds sure is breathtaking. We cannot contain our excitement any longer and wanted to share this upcoming project. The purpose of Prayer Path is to create sacred space where you can connect with God, family, and friends as well as take advantage of enjoying this beautiful property He has given us. Volunteer with us at one of the upcoming working parties and bring your family today to join the fun. See you there! For further questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
COMMUNITY LIFE (FOR ADULTS)
What you'll find is a group in your geographical location, a group in your same life stage, a group that meets at the church because of child care needs, or meets in homes around the tri-valley. Whatever you are looking for, we're here to help you plug in. You can contact Carole Taylor at 560-3800 ext 116 for more information. The following groups and events are part of Community Life:
If you’ve been meaning to join a Small Group, stop by the Small Groups kiosk after service and get connected! You can also contact Carole Taylor to help you connect with a small group staff leader who will find just the right group for you. All groups are also listed on our website here.
-FORM YOUR OWN SMALL GROUP-
Maybe you have connections with people at work or in your neighborhood. Maybe you serve with people on Sunday mornings that have a lot in common with you. Maybe you’d like to have deeper community with people you’ve met at church events. You don’t have to wait for a group to form, you can do that with people you already know. Head to the Community Life page on our website and click on the Interested in Forming Your Own Group button to learn more.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH

FOR OUR KIDS
The mission of CrossWinds Kids is to partner with families to help kids KNOW God, LOVE others and REFLECT Jesus in their everyday life. We offer services for kids Birth-5th grade each Sunday in The Barn at 9am, 10:30am, & 12pm.
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.
FOR OUR YOUTH
CrossWinds College Ministry
For Young Adults Ages 18 - 23
CrossWinds is excited to announce the launch of our College Ministry! This new project is designed to meet the unique needs of college-aged adults. Through a wide variety of experiences, events, and small groups we will help nurture a relationship with Christ. If you are college-aged and looking to navigate the challenges of this life stage, in a loving community, we'd love to meet up with you! If you'd like more information about upcoming summer events, please visit our website. For more info or to grab coffee, please contact our college pastor Kim Bonilla.
