Reading through the book of Romans, we find Paul walking through three primary themes: sin, salvation, and service. Knowing these themes is essential to being a Jesus follower. Most importantly, they remind us that this life is all about GRACE, the free gift of God’s love and forgiveness FOR us, and expressed THROUGH us. Our messages will be based on Romans 7 (June 5), Romans 8 (June 19) and Romans 12 (June 26).
This month we celebrate Pentecost (Sunday, May 15). The Holy Spirit connects us with Jesus, transforms us like Jesus and releases us for Jesus. Our messages will be based on John 14 (May 8), Galatians 5 (May 15), Acts 1 (May 22) and 1 Corinthians 12 (May 29).

This month we will look at the intriguing story of Esther. Please take the time to read this story, and as you read, see if you can find where God is in the twists of turns of the plot. At first glance, God is nowhere to be seen… but then again! Click here for messages.
As we read through the gospel of Mark together, our goal is to get to know Jesus better, and experience the blessing of knowing Him. You can find reflections on the weekly bible reading here. This coming Sunday the message will be based of the reflections of this week. Your comments are welcome and helpful! Click here for the messages.

Crossroads Church is initiating a year of review and renewal for our mission and vision. Through the coming ministry season we will be visiting the congregation, meeting in smaller discussion groups, and hosting a Congregational Retreat in the spring of next year. Please be in prayer for Council and the Crossroads, that we may discern where the Lord is leading, and where we need to follow by faith.
This month we are going to look at WHO Jesus is, and WHY He is such good news for all people. There will be three messages based on John 5 that look at Jesus’ relationship to the Bible, Jesus’ relationship to God, and Jesus’ relationship to us and to the world. We will discover why Jesus is ‘the Name above all names’ and the hope of the world.
Join us this summer as we commit to reading through a Psalm every week. The goal of this is to pay attention to how the Lord is speaking to us by His Spirit through these Psalms. You are encouraged to listen for how the Spirit is inspiring you, convicting you, comforting you, motivating you… equipping you as His follower. You will find the list of Psalms, as well as downloadable readings, here.
