Marriage to the Max

God has a plan for marriage, and He lays it out clearly in His Word. During this semester, we’ll cover God’s plan for marriage relating to serving our spouse, fighting fair, communicating, forgiving, encouraging, intimacy and more. Whether you are just married, been married for many years or thinking about getting married, this class is for you. We will record each class and post the recordings here. It does take some time to edit the recordings so it may be…

Amazing Summer of Camps

From Denton, Texas to Glorieta, New Mexico, we have experienced some amazing moments through camps this summer through Mini Camp, Preteen Camp, and Student Camp. Forty-seven adults and 169 children from 1st grade to 12th grade went on camps with CrossRidge Church this year. We saw 17 salvations, 15 rededications, and 3 calls to ministry. This was one of the years that some parents dream about. Our Preteen and Student camps lined up to be on the same week in…

We’ll be sure to post the winners here but not before we’ve had a…

NOLA Mission

Over Spring Break, our students embarked on a mission trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. Starting at 5:30 in the morning on Sunday, March 10, 14 of our students and 5 student sponsors dedicated their free week to serving the people of NOLA. The ride down went smoothly, with an obligatory stop at Buc-ee’s (how could we not?) and some oh-so-fun carpool karaoke! Upon arriving on Sunday night, students checked in with MissionLab and then made their way to the student…

2018 Fallback Student Retreat

Our students went to the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma this past weekend for their annual Fallback Student Retreat. It may have rained the majority of the time but they had an amazing time of hanging out with each other, getting away from the every-day and learning a lot about Jesus. From campfires to fishing, to smores and belly laughing, our students had an amazing weekend they will remember for a long time. They split up into 2 cabins with girls…

CrossRidge App

We’ve been busy around here this year. We’ve updated our website at the beginning of the year which allows you up to stay up to date on our blog as well as all of the events.

We also introduced giving by text. Once you set up your account you can…

As followers of Jesus, we are witnesses for Jesus. We are the light of the world. We are called by Jesus to shine the light of Jesus so the lost world around us can see, hear and learn about Jesus. As witnesses for Jesus, we want to help others receive God’s amazing gift of salvation by His grace through their faith in Jesus. What a challenge to be a witness for Jesus! What a privilege to be a witness for Jesus!…

We were able to purchase and fill 25 backpacks with all the supplies kids need on the first day of school. By doing this, we not only get to experience the blessing of providing needed supplies to kids but we also get to be a blessing to the parents and teachers as…

Helping Out Along with using the money from Dollar Day for July, we have also been accepting donations to help fill even more backpacks. As in the past, we have partnered with Little Elm ISD and…

The Bible IS for Preschoolers

The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me, I stand alone on the word of God, the B-I-B-L-E. Did you ever sing that song as a kid? Did you believe it? What better time to introduce the Bible than the preschool years? Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6 It’s easy to think that preschoolers have no business with a real Bible, that’s why toddler…

Praying to the Lord of the Harvest

I don’t know about you, but this past Sunday’s service was especially moving for me. To see the connection that we have with the believers in Antioch, all the way up until today! God’s church has always been a sending church and we get the privilege of being a part of it! The goal is to be a “sending” church and not a church that sent last year. One question that came to my mind as I was sitting in…
