Preteen Camp Recap

We took 63 children and adult leaders to camp last week. 63 people from CrossRidge Church had the privilege of spending time in God’s beautiful creation at Camp Copass. There was fishing, canoeing, crafting, cooking, and swimming, just to name a few activities. There was daily Bible study and time of worship each night as we focused on John 3:16 that says, “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will…

One thing that really separates this particular church camp from other camps…

Love and Teach Jesus

We had five families that dedicated their little ones to the Lord last Sunday. They stood and told us that they wanted to raise their sweet children God’s way. In today’s world, that is not an easy task. The good news is that we, as their church family, get to join them on this wonderful journey. We get the privilege to love on them and teach them about Jesus.  “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of…
