WLW Warrior Retreat
Our Women of Crossroads met in the Worship Center for an impactful time of worship, reflection, and teachings on prayer. They were empowered and equipped to become the prayer warrior God created them to be! This retreat included teaching on the women warriors of the Bible, breakout sessions from various teachers, a keynote speaker, and worship led by Crossroads’ very own band. It was a beautiful day all the way around!
Crosswalk | 1st - 5th Grade
Crosswalk Kid's Bible Study was enjoyed by some of our 1st-5th Graders who got to engage in their faith, learn more about Jesus, and become mission minded. This semester they dug into "Mystery Island" & "Incredible Race" to learn more about the power of God! They also focused on a Monthly Mission as well as games and activities. Lots of FUN was had by all!
S3- Second Saturday Serve
We had a great bunch of people come out for breakfast and then serving. We packed food boxes and beautified our church property by planting flowers and spreading mulch. The weather cooperated and we had a beautiful morning! This was a wonderful serve for the whole family!
Men's Paul & Timothy Breakfast
Men invited their Paul and/or Timothy to join them for a Men's Breakfast. Someone who has been an important spiritual influence to them, or someone they have been that for. These Paul/Timothy figures are crucial in a man’s walk with the Lord. They had a very nice morning celebrating with breakfast, teaching, and prayer!
HS Winter Jam Retreat
Over a packed weekend our HS Students got to build relationships with each other and strengthen their relationship with God. When they were not together listening to the word laid on Aaron Koehler’s heart, they had FUN activities that Silver Birch Ranch provided, such as horseback riding, tubing, indoor gym activities, broomball, and so much more! Everyone had a great time!
Through local shop and drop and Amazon click and ship, Crossroads family members purchased 2484 pair of underwear, which we combined with hygiene products to assemble 270 1st Night Foster Care Bags for local kids in our community. Thank you for your generosity!
HS Harbor Students Serving
Our High School Students packed the Food Boxes for our food pantry this month so that we had boxes to give out to those in need in our community. They also packed up the food boxes for our sister church in Aurora, San Pablo, so that they, too, had boxes for their community members in need.
Christmas Eve Services
Our Christmas Eve Services were an amazing blend of worship music and the Word! A glorious celebration on the birth of Jesus! The annual highlight is when we sing "Silent Night" by candlelight! Just beautiful. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season!
Share Joy with a Toy
Our Christmas Share Joy with a Toy drive was a success once again this year! All of you who participated ended up blessing over 150 students in our community with Christmas gifts that they otherwise may not have received. What a God-sized victory!
Anchor Student Christmas Parties
Our Middle & High School Students all had a blast as they celebrated the Christmas season! If you have MS or HS students be sure to check out The Harbor for our HS Students, and The Dock for our MS Students. These groups meet weekly throughout our Life Groups semesters.
Waterleaf's 40 Days for Life Peaceful Prayer Vigil
We had several volunteers sign-up to pray on-site at Waterleaf for their 40 Days for Life Peaceful Prayer Vigil. While we each took shifts throughout the morning we prayed specifically for the unborn, the women who have and will enter the facility, the Staff within the building, etc... This non-profit organization helps organize people all over the country praying for 40 Days each fall…and we had the blessing of joining them again this year!
WLW Ignite: A Night of Worship
Our WLW Ignite: A Night of Worship was designed to light the fire in our souls that may have needed to be rekindled. It was a powerful evening of live indoor worship, that also included a message of encouragement, followed by a time of fellowship with hot cider and donuts. It was a wonderful night for our women of Crossroads!
kidTown Food Drive
Not to be outdone by the adults, our kidTown Children's Ministry wanted to participate in our Drive-Thru Food Drive, too. They had set a goal to collect 250 boxes of Mac 'n Cheese for our Food Pantry. Well, they SMASHED that goal and collected...(drum roll, please...) 467 boxes!! Way to go kidTown!
Drive-Thru Food Drive
WOW did Crossroads show up! HUGE praise God and thank you to ALL who participated in our Drive-Thru Food Drive this year! We received enough food to stock our Food Pantry for about the next 7 months! That food will fill approximately 750-800 Food Boxes that will feed 3000+/- people in need in our community! Way to Love Well by Reaching Out, in Christ!
Back to School Blessing
Each year at the start of the school year we do a Back to School Blessing during our Sunday Services to pray over our Students, Teachers, Administrator, Bus Drivers, etc... as they all begin the new school year. With COVID, this year looked a bit different for everyone! We brought our Children's & Youth Staff on stage and added them, and all of our Parents, to the list as remote learning was in full-swing! Please continue to pray for ALL as decisions are still being made regarding the school districts in our area!
We had beautiful weather for our GroupLink Tailgate! People enjoyed hotdogs, fun, and connecting as we celebrated ALL who joined a Life Group for this semester!

Thank you for all that have helped us love these families well!
Anchor Family Picnic
We had a FABULOUS time at our Anchor Family Picnic! We did our best at social-distancing as we enjoyed burgers and dogs from the grill, and played some outdoor games. It was a beautiful evening to be out connecting with some of our church family once again.
