RECAP TIME

Do your actions reflect what you say you believe in? Would your friends be able to tell you're a Christian without having to ask? The way we live should point others back to Jesus.

We've almost made it through the semester, let's finish strong!

RECAP TIME 😤

It’s not always easy being a Christian. Sometimes it seems like you’re missing out. Sometimes it seems like God doesn’t want you to have fun. Sometimes life feels restricted. We get it. But when you fully surrender your life to Jesus and live on mission for him, you being to experience life to the fullest.

God doesn’t give us rules to hurt us, he gives us constraints to guide us towards life in his design.

See you Sunday!

MIDWEEK RECAP

Life is hard. We get it. But we’re not promised easy lives as Christians. Trials will still come our way and life will still be hard. We have the peace and comfort of Jesus to get us through those trials. We know that the things of the world are only temporary.

We’ll see you tonight students, always reach out if you need anything from us. We’re here for you 😤

MIDWEEK RECAP

Our relationship with God should be more than a mindless task. We’re quick to say we’re Christians, but do our actions reflect that? Don’t let God simply be the Lord of your mouth, but let every action you take be a reflection of his lordship over your life.

See you tonight, students 😤

MIDWEEK RECAP 😤

We’re so thankful for each and every one of you guys that makes up our community! We love praying with and for you, hearing about your lives, and just hanging out together. Having good community is worth being thankful for, so tell someone you’re thankful for them today!

See you tonight!

MIDWEEK RECAP 😤

Last Sunday we looked at how we can have hope through the evil of this world. It can be hard to see God moving in our lives sometimes, but when we block out all the noise, we realize that he’s there with us through it all.

Take time this week to prioritize your relationship with God and experience him in your life!

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 8. LAST.TESTIMONY.TUESDAY.

We saved a great one for last, our very own Pastor Marc Farnell. Take a listen as he shares his journey with Christ through childhood, college basketball, and how he ended up where he is today. We've got a feeling this guy knows his stuff, so check it out!

We can't wait to see you tomorrow night 😤

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 7. We're approaching the end of our Testimony Tuesday series, we hope you've loved it as much as we have! This week we have Amy Wiese sharing her testimony.

Sometimes the stories of those who grew up in the church can be the most inspiring. Someone already trying to be a good person recognizing thier need for grace and for a savior should encourage all of us. It's easy to feel your testimony isn't powerful without any crazy stories or moments of revelation, but God can use your story no matter what!

Thanks for all you do Mrs. Amy!

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 6. After a week break, we're back with more testimonies from your leaders!

This week we've got Al Gaines! Take a listen as he shares some of his journey with the Lord, and how he felt called into ministry. Thanks for all you do and for being so real Al!

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 5. Another Tuesday, another testimony 😤

This week, it's Keefer Fields, the youth sponsor OG with the dad basketball skills that dreams are made of. Take a listen as he shares how Gos used his family to bring Keefer back to church, and eventually back to a relationship with Christ.

We can't wait to see you all this Sunday!

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 4. It's Tuesday, so you know what that means!

Take a listen as Jenifer Teel shares how to came to know Jesus at a young age, and how he has used her to bring the Gospel to others through worship. Stay until the end to hear what she sees for the future of our youth group!

See you this Friday for our Back to School Party, this Sunday for Small Groups, and next Tuesday for another testimony 😤

Testimony Tuesday – Episode 3. Another Tuesday, another testimony 😤

Watch as Brandon Arlington shares his story of growing up in church, meeting Jesus on a mission trip, and how his life has never been the same since. It’s easy to feel like your testimony is weak if you’ve simply grown up in church, but that’s far from the truth. God uses everyone’s story to reach others, and we hope you feel encouraged by Brandon’s!

Come by this Sunday at 9:00 to say hey to Brandon and dive into God’s Word with us!

  • Backpack Drive
    What’s better than giving out backpacks to kids? Giving out backpacks full of school supplies to kids. Each year we donate backpacks and school supplies to LEISD. This year we set the bar high at wanting to pack and give out 70 backpacks. CrossRidge responded by not only meeting that goal but by going above and beyond. We gave out 76 backpacks to kids at the LEISD Back to School Bash. Utilizing money given to Dollar Days and donations from […]
  • Student Camp Recap
    What do you get when you combine the best people you know with the worst food you’ve ever had? A week at church camp, of course! This past week CrossRidge sent 33 students and 7 adults (considering they volunteer for the youth group, I’m using the word “adult” loosely here) off to FUGE Camp in Pineville, Louisiana to learn more about their Creator and serve the local community. One thing that really separates this particular church camp from other camps […]

My brothers and sisters, do not show favoritism as you hold on to the faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ. 2 For if someone comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and a poor person dressed in filthy clothes also comes in, 3 if you look with […]
  • Great to be Back!
    What an awesome night we had with our students this past Wednesday. Over 70 students and over 20 adult leaders showed up to our first student event since March 11. What a blessing it was to see so many familiar faces and to see new faces as well. Well, not faces exactly. Everybody was wearing masks and social distancing but at least we got to see everyone after being apart for so long. Usually, by now, we have had an […]

My dear brothers and sisters, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger, 20 for human anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness. 21 Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save […]
