First and foremost, we would love to have you visit our fellowship! If you need any help in planning a visit, have any further questions, or need anything else, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you have a great first visit to CrossPointe. Hopefully this page will help you envision what your visit will look like.
Our worship service is family style, and children are encouraged to stay in service. We understand that this is not as common in today's church culture as it was during the first almost 2000 years of the church. However, we feel strongly that children can benefit immensely from being a part of the church fellowship on Sunday mornings.
We do offer a nursery for 0-2. Parents are able to take their children to the nursery after our worship through singing, and an announcement will be made when you are dismissed to take your children to the nursery. All nursery workers are background checked and members of CrossPointe. We care deeply about the safety of our children. Please note, however, that children of all ages are welcome to stay in the service if you prefer.
We seek to be hospitable and are understanding about some noise during the service. We understand that training children to sit through a service takes time and we are here to help with that! We will aid parents in this by having quiet activities (coloring, puzzles etc) during the service to keep their hands busy as they hear the Word preached.
Food is allowed in our meeting space and you are more than welcome to bring snacks for your young children. We actually have coffee and snacks each week provided as well!
We want to be a church that exudes hospitality and love for one another. If, and only if, mothers of young children approve – we encourage mothers with older children or other ladies in the church to help mothers with young children during the service when able. It is tough having small children and focusing on the message at times. Let’s serve our families well. We want you to know that you are not alone. We are here to help!

All are free to hang out and get to know one another and get a refill on some coffee and snacks. Part of being a fellowship is spending time together.
The services are usually around one hour.
Children are welcomed into the main service. We do our best, as stated above, to provide as much hospitality as possible. We believe that children can understand far more than we give them credit for regarding sermons. We see the church as an inter-generational church and do our best to do life together as a whole. As stated above, nursery is available after worship through singing for those 2 and under.
Our services seek first and foremost to be God-honoring. We spend time in singing, praise, and prayer. We sing modern praise and worship with some modernized hymns. Song selection is something that we take very seriously at CrossPoint as we seek to sing songs that are Christ-centered. We end the service with a Biblically expositional sermon in which we open up the Scripture and study verse by verse and book by book.
Our greatest concern is that we come to worship the Lord and make it all about Him. Some may dress casually while others more traditionally.
