About Sunday Gatherings

After much prayer and discussion, CrossPoint is excited to resume Sunday in-person gatherings starting May 31, 2020.

The leadership team have been seeking God's wisdom in prayer and counsel, while discussing with local government and local churches. We anticipate evolving our approach in the weeks ahead, and appreciate your flexibility as we learn and adjust. Our goal is to not only honor with state and local recommendations, but to also love each other well while considering various levels of comfort. May our church grow more united around Christ and His mission and may we not fall into the trap of division and criticism.

Service Times
9:00 a.m. In-Person & Online
10:30 a.m. In-Person

Online
We will livestream the 9:00 a.m. service on Facebook, YouTube and at crosspoint.family indefinitely .

In-person
To allow for social distancing, we will be having two services starting promptly 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Since we will not be resuming children's classes and nursery at this time, each service will be family-friendly and last just over one hour.  We will maintain two services as long as needed in order to accommodate around 100 people in the sanctuary - to best allow for social distancing. RSVPs are not needed.

A Note to Families with Small Children
We understand that this transition will be challenging for children. There will be much grace as children adapt to remaining in the service and adhering to social distancing guidelines. We have reserved the lobby for families whose children need a break during the service. The Nursing Moms’ Room will be available for nursing mothers.

CrossPoint is committed to creating a family-friendly service will opportunities for our wigglers and gigglers to engage in and connect with the service.
