The Journey Home: Facing Opposition
Any time you step out in faith, expect to face challenges. Sometimes we think if God in it, will be easy. Not so! Nearly every leader in scripture faced seemingly insurmountable challenges.
 
What kind? And how do we deal with them when they come? This Sunday in our 'Journey Home' series, we'll look at what Nehemiah's challenges and take our cues from him!

    The Journey Home: It Takes a Team
    Here's a biblical truth: God nearly always works through 'us,' not just 'me'. In this week's 'Journey Home,' we'll see how the team God brought around Nehemiah enabled him to do what he could never have done by himself. God works the same way today--he accomplishes his mission not through 'me' or 'you,' but through 'us' together at The Crossing!

    The Journey Home: FAITH
    In week two of our series, 'The Journey Home - what God has for us next,' we ask, 'What does it look like to take a step of faith?' The first thing we'll discover? That following God's call is NOT safe!! But it's exactly where we want to be. Come find out what else we learn :)

    The Journey Home: God Has a Dream for You
    This Sunday we start a new series, 'The Journey Home'. It is subtitled 'getting ready for what God has next' because we are about to shift into a new gear at The Crossing. Sometime in the next few months, we will move into our new home--the one we’ve been waiting for and dreaming of for a very long time!
    So we’re taking two months to prepare not only our hearts and minds, but also our systems, ministries, and volunteer teams. We want to be fully staffed and ready for whoever God brings us. Start praying now that God will show you how he wants you to be part of it! And let's take this journey together :)

    Run a Great Race: A New Year Devotional
    Series: Fear Not
    Did you know your body’s cells are constantly being renewed? Stomach cells turn over every 5 days; bone cells take 10 years. So most of the body you have now didn’t exist 10 years ago. See, there’s a basic principle in biology: living things grow and change. A living thing that’s not growing is dying.

    What’s true with our bodies is also true with Christ. There’s no such thing standing still on your spiritual journey—you’re either moving forward or drifting backward. So today we talk about how to move forward in your relationship with God in 2023.

    Fear Not: Great Joy
    Series: Fear Not
    “Fear not! I bring you good news of great joy for all the people!” This week in our “Fear Not!” Christmas series, we look at the “great joy” part of the angel’s announcement. What is biblical joy? How would you define it? Is it different from happiness? And how can we experience more of it in our lives?

    Gratitude is a Choice
    Series: God Is...
    Sometimes we think gratitude is something that just 'happens'. Well, as my 6th grade social studies teacher used to say 'That's a bunch of hooey!' This Sunday we talk about choosing to live thank-filled lives. As we remember his goodness and allow it to permeate our hearts, God transforms us!

    God Is… KING
    Series: God Is...
    When Family Feud asked 100 people 'Who's the King,' 86 of them answered, 'Elvis!' Well, Elvis may be the king of rock-n-roll, but today in our final segment of 'God Is...' we see that God is the ultimate King! There is no realm in which he does not rule; He is the King of everything, everywhere, and every when--and the King of our hearts.

    God Is… EVERLASTING
    Series: God Is...
    In this week's 'God Is...' passage, Psalm 103:15-18 compares our lives to flowers--here today, gone tomorrow. Life IS short, and we would rather ignore that fact! But Scripture tells us instead to learn to number our days, because then we are reminded that life is not about us-it’s about knowing and loving our everlasting God and letting him use us to help others do the same
