We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and visiting a new church can be nerve-racking. We want to make your first experience at 3Crosses a great one! We've put together some simple information to make your first visit easier.
8:00am | 9:30am | 11:00am
From the moment you walk up to the building, we want you to feel like part of the family.
Everything we do at 3Crosses is about LIFE TRANSFORMATION THROUGH FOLLOWING CHRIST. This transformation happens as Jesus draws lost people to himself, saves them through His Gospel, and grows them into his image. Thus, life transformation is an ongoing experience that lasts our entire lives, as God uses His Spirit, His Word, our community and our experiences to transform us.
So as a church, we find creative ways to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus. We provide exciting programs for children and students. We build relationships with our friends, family, and neighbors and share our transformation story. We preach and study God's Word. We utilize the arts to tell the story of the Gospel. We share meals, friendship, and prayers with the homeless in our community. We partner with organizations in our community and around the world that are introducing lost people to Jesus. We do all these things and more to introduce people to the One who transforms.
This is 3Crosses. This is Life Transformation Through Following Christ.
1) Expect to
Our purpose at 3Crosses is Life Transformation Through Following Christ. Everything we do is designed to help you be transformed in your relationship with Jesus. This is true for our Sunday services as well. Our music is centered on the character and work of God. Our sermons take Biblical texts and apply them to your life. Every week we tell the story of Jesus' death and resurrection, trusting that this message is "the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes!"
2) Expect to Feel Welcome
From the moment you drive up the hill and into the parking lot, you can expect that there will be men and women who will help you and make sure you feel welcome. We'll help you find a parking spot. We'll say hello to you and answer your questions when you enter the building. We'll help you find a seat in the auditorium, the check-in kiosks for your kids, or a classroom for Community Hour. If you have any questions, head over to "Connection Central" and we'll get them answered!
3) Expect for Your Kids to Have a Great Time!
We have an amazing, fun, safe environment for kids at 3Crosses. Every week, kids from 3 months to 18 years of age come and have a great time engaging in age-appropriate activities and teaching. We often hear families say, "We wanted to just check out 3Crosses for one week, but our kids made us come back again!" Your kids might love our Children's Ministry so much that they start dragging you to church!
4) Expect to Be Invited into Community
3Crosses is a big church, and at first, you'll think, "How will I ever meet anyone here?" We know our church is big, and so we've developed a ton of smaller communities that will help you get to know people quickly. We have amazing communities that meet on Sunday morning from 10-11 all over the church as well as mid-week and home communities for every age and life-stage. If you need help connecting into community, visit "Connection Central" in the lobby or browse through them on our website.
Our Children's program is designed to meet the needs of all children from 3 months to 5th grade. Preschoolers and Elementary kids learn the same Bible lesson on Sundays, taught by experienced teachers in an age-appropriate way that is both relevant and fun. Different techniques are used to increase learning such as toys, music, crafts, play, videos, drama, puppets, and more.
Jungle Cruisers (Nursery/Walkers/Runners/Twos) (8:00, 9:30, and 11:00)
Our Jungle Cruisers meet in their individual classrooms for both services and welcome all little ones from 3 months - 35 months.
Explorers (Pre-K/Kindergarten) (8:00, 9:30, and 11:00)
Our PreK/K classes meet in their individual classrooms for both services. The classes are specially planned for the unique needs and skills of children 36-months to Kindergarten. This stage of curiosity and exploration makes it a perfect learning environment to teach children about the wonders of God. Become an Explorer and learn about how much Jesus loves you!
Xtreme (9:30am - 10:30am)
Xtreme is our Bible class for elementary students. Each morning, children will learn about the Bible in a fun, classroom environment where teachers lead them in learning about the Word of God together.
Quest (8:00am - 9:10am & 11:00am - 12:10pm)
Quest is our children's church program. Each morning, children will learn about God through a message, singing worship songs, skits, multimedia, and more. Children also spend time in smaller discussion groups where they get to unpack and apply God's Word to their lives.
