We Welcome You!
Everyone is new once. We want you to know we're a thriving, caring, authentic Christian community for real people who care about each other.
CrossView Church provides a multitude of ministries and activities during the week, but the best way to get to know us is by visiting us on a Sunday morning.
Here is a general Sunday timeline:
9:00-9:45 a.m. ~ ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
9:45 a.m. ~ SUNDAY CORPORATE PRAYER
Our Sunday Worship Service begins at 10 a.m.
A member from our Greeters Ministry will welcome you when you enter our front doors and direct you to our Welcome Center if you need information or direction to our age-appropriate nurseries. One of our Service Assistants will hand you a bulletin outside of the sanctuary. If you arrive early, please enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and a snack at our CVC Cafe.
Nursery is available for the entire service.
Children’s Church (4 years-5th grade) will worship with their parents in the sanctuary and be dismissed prior to the message.
Children will attend worship in the sanctuary with their parents and be dismissed prior to the message. They will meet their teacher at the back of the sanctuary and walk down the hallway to the gym where their class will begin.
Busy Bags are available in the hallway behind the sancturary for young childrento use during the service.
Our IGNITE Group for 6th -8th graders meets during the service August through May.
The Church Service
We don’t always follow the same order, but you can expect the service to look something like the following:
- Our worship team will open the service with a praise song or a hymn. Some of the songs are found in a pew hymnal. Others are projected on a screen at the front of the sanctuary in easy–to-read font.
- A Bible passage will be read. We encourage you to bring your own Bible but if you didn’t, Bibles in the pews are available for your use.
- An elder or pastor will pray for the service and give the announcements.
- An offering will be taken, but, as our guest, do not feel obligated to contribute.
- Please be sure to fill out a Welcome Card located in the pew and place in the offering plate. We'd liked to get to know you.
- At some point near the beginning of the service, you’ll have an opportunity to greet those sitting near you. Feel free to shake hands or just smile and say, “hello.”
- We’ll sing another song or two. Sometimes, we may have a missionary give an update. Sometimes, we may show a video clip. Occasionally, we’ll have special music or the CVC children will sing.
- Then the message will be given.
- Afterwards, we’ll sing another song and Pastor will give a blessing before we are dismissed.
Our communion service is held the first Sunday of every month. We invite all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to participate. Gluten-free wafers are available.
After the Service
After the service, people often linger to chat or pray together. Enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and a snack at our CVC Cafe. Feel free to introduce yourself or ask any questions you may have. Now’s also the time to gather your children from the nursery. If you would like to learn more about CVC, please visit the Welcome Center in the foyer.
