Building Community Together
We believe service is the natural outlet for our unique gifts and the hallmark of a healthy discipleship community. There are many ways to serve within the Crossing Life Church family through our various ministries and outreach programs. There are opportunities for everyone to use their gifts and develop new ones through service. These include construction, property maintenance, music ministry, children’s programming, evangelism activities, youth activities, art, dance and drama, meal ministry, special events, the church leadership team, administration, serving at our special outreach ministry of Community Bingo, and much more.
Many of our teams support our weekly Sunday services, providing such functions as ushering, child care, child education, hospitality and worship. If you are interested in joining a team, please attend Team Night on the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m at the CLC.
