If you are looking for a place to worship Easter (this Sunday!) in the Twin Cities, I invite you to check out CrossRoads Church with me. I'll be volunteering there this weekend (as well as attending) and would love to see you there. Bring your friends, bring your family. It is going to ROCK! The staff of CrossRoads has been working very hard to make this a big impact event. Do you or someone you know need to know Christ? Sunday Morning 9:00 and 11:00 at Park High School in Cottage Grove. If you come at 9:00 honk at me, I'll be directing traffic. If you come at 11:00 come shake my hand, I'll be greeting people. But whatever you do, just come!

Easter is an invitation to encounter a God who is alive. A God who came out of a tomb to give us more than a holiday. And much more than a religion. This Easter, come and re-imagine a different kind of life… a new life… a resurrected life. Join us this year for EASTER at Park High School in Cottage Grove, MN.

Below are the core beliefs of CrossRoads Church:

Climate of Acceptance

We want CrossRoads to be a warm and inviting place. We want everyone to feel welcomed. That's why we often say, "No perfect people allowed here." We're just a bunch of real people living in the world trying to connect with a very real God.

Relevant Biblical Teaching

Relevant is a key word. Our goal in our teaching is to build a bridge from "then" (the teachings of the Bible) to "now" (life in the 21st century). The Bible never needs to be updated. It is from God and full of timeless principles.

Outward Focused

We're not a club for "insiders" only. We exist for those who never walk in our doors. Our mission is to change the world, one life at a time, by pointing people to Christ. As long as one person is far from God, we will continue to reach out to our community.

Seeker Sensitive

Our desire is to present Christ in an understandable, culturally-relevant way to all people. That means we want the church-inexperienced to come to our services and understand what's going on. We want to attract seekers AND edify believers in our services.

Small Groups

As CrossRoads grows larger, we realize we have to grow smaller at the same time. We do this through small groups, which are groups of 6-12 people, gathering together for Bible study, prayer, service, and building friendships.

Reliance on the Holy Spirit

God is the Head of the Church and His guidance and empowerment matter greatly. That's why prayer will permeate everything we do at CrossRoads.

Organized by Purpose

Our desire is to be driven not by tradition or personalities or programs or finances, but by the purposes of God, outlined in the Bible. The Bible tells us what our "business" is and what's none of our business.

All Things Done With Excellence

Excellence honors God and inspires others. We're committed to doing all things at CrossRoads with excellence… to the very best of our ability.

Do Church as a Team

CrossRoads believes in teams, not superstars. We believe every believer is gifted by God and called to do ministry. The job of the pastor(s) is to "equip God's people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ." [Ephesians 4:12]

Spiritual Growth the Norm - not the exception

Spiritual growth is expected of everyone at CrossRoads. As we do our part — participate in personal devotions, small groups, Life Development Classes, the Grand Slam Seminars, and Sunday teaching — we believe God will bring spiritual maturity to our lives.
