This Week at CrossWinds Church
9:00AM 10:30AM 12:00PM
God in the Box | Week One
Rumors grow in the absence of revelation. Every time we keep God at arm’s length, declining an active, living knowledge of Him, we become vulnerable to rumors. Lulled by false comfort and half-truths about God, join us this series as we push against these rumors and set them straight.
June 4th and 11th
July 16th and 23rd
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 a working party and bring home a bench to build with your family today. Come learn more at the Prayer Path kiosk!

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
STUFF (Junior High)
Sundays @ 10:30am
Wednesdays @ 6:30pm
