WELCOME to CrossingCentral!

Church is not where we go, it’s who we are.

During these uncertain times, it’s important to remember that we don’t go to church, we are the church!

God is for us, with us, and moving through us, and we want you to be part of it! Below are opportunities and Crossing family news.

ENCOUNTER Jesus

This Sunday in ‘NOT Normal,’ our Christmas series, we focus on ‘Purpose.’ Join us at East Ridge High at 10am!
 
OR you can always catch us online at Facebook.com/CrossingClermont
 
Over the next several weeks we’re prayer walking every community that will be our new neighbors at the Grove. It’s super simple, you just sign up for a section of a neighborhood and go for a walk while praying for the people that live there. We’ve got a resource to help you right here: Prayer Walk Guide. Want to be a part of preparing the way spiritually for our church to grow and flourish in our new home and for God to move in the lives of our community? Contact our prayer coordinator at Prayer@theCrossingChurch.org to choose an area!!
 
Have a prayer need? Email our Prayer Team any time at Prayer@theCrossingChurch.org.
 
Pray with us! This Monday from 6:30-7pm, we will gather to pray online via Zoom. To join the Zoom call, email Prayer@TheCrossingChurch.org and we’ll send you the login and password.
 
 

People Gathering and Celebrating

CONNECT with His People

  • Join us after church on Sun, December 12th for Cookies & Cocoa! Enjoy some fellowship, hot cocoa and decorate some sugar cookies. Cookies with frosting and sprinkles, OH MY! 
  • Dec 24 at 6pm is our annual Christmas Eve Bonfire! It’s a simple, reflective,family-friendly service that is sure to get your hearts ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. Bring a friend and a lawn chair and join us at
    the Grove (15420 Old Hwy 50 W, Clermont)!
  • Dec 26 is our annual New Year sabbatical—that means no service at East Ridge. Instead, we’ll post a devotion to use with family and friends that will help you invite Jesus to be the center of your New Year!

ENGAGE in His Mission

 
 
A Place to Call Home! We’re throwing ourselves a housewarming party for our new building! Soon we’ll be building at the Grove, and it’s time to order furnishings (furniture, kids classroom equipment, audio/visual equipment, kitchen appliances and auditorium chairs). Estimated cost is $105K. The leadership teams have made our ‘Housewarming’ commitments. Now we invite you to join us! 
 
If you’d like to help us get there, first, pray about how much God wants to give through you. Then go to bit.ly/CrossingHome and make your own ‘Housewarming’ commitment! Thanks!!
 

SHARE Him with Others

Each Christmas we celebrate God’s gift of Jesus by being generous with others, going above and beyond our normal giving.

Pray about how much God wants to give through you this year! We challenge you to stretch yourself and trust God by blessing those in need. Click ‘Christmas’ on the dropdown menu at TheCrossingChurch.org giving tab.

Here are our 2021 Christmas Offering goals. Help us meet them!

$2500 for WELL of HOPE

Well of Hope helps people in the Cagan Crossings/Four Corners region meet basic needs and reach their goals by providing healthy food, job training, clothing, furniture, and employment. They serve 400 children every month!

$2500 for LIFE’S CHOICES WOMEN’S CLINIC

Life’s Choices opened their Clermont location in September 2021! Their clinic is staffed by medical professionals and provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, pregnancy care, adoption counseling, post-abortion counseling, and community resource referrals. Check them out at www.lifeschoices.net
 

$15,000 for CORNERSTONE ACADEMY

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere; most Haitians live on less than $3/day. As a result, a third of Haiti’s children never go to school; of those who do, only 40% get past 6th grade.

For twelve years, we have had a strong partnership with Cornerstone Church & Academy in rural Chauffaud, Haiti, which offers not only elementary & middle school, but also has been certified as the only high school within 20 miles!

The Crossing is helping Cornerstone create a student sponsorship program. Our goal is to ensure that every child gets a great education and a hot meal every day! $14,000 will give Cornerstone the assistance it needs as we build the program together.

The additional $1000 will be earmarked for two community dinners in Chauffard hosted by Cornerstone Church. Haiti is in dire straits and our friends are going hungry. We can do something about it!

Note: 30 children have sponsors, but we still need 130 more! If you or someone you know would like to sponsor a child for $25/mo, please contact us at admin@TheCrossingChurch.org
 
Thanks for your generous partnership! Together, we can be the hands and feet of Jesus here, near, and far…
