F.C.O.E…Know what it means?

Friendliest Church on Earth! That’s who I think we are!…and the start of a new year is the perfect time to show it. Guests will form their impression in the first 10 seconds of arriving on campus—Wow! That’s not very long to show them we’re the F.C.O.E!…but we can. Whether you’re serving in the parking lot or at the registration desk…or hanging out at…

Millions of Dollars for What?

Every year we invest millions of dollars in “doing church.” But what does that look like? More importantly, what does that investment produce?  Each January we publish an Annual Report that recaps some of the main results of our ministry efforts from the previous year. As a part of our CrossBridge family, it’s important you know the good things God is doing. I think…

Peer into the Heart of CrossBridge

Every now and then there’s an opportunity to really peek into the heart of CrossBridge and see what it’s all about. When you do, you see an expression of the body of Christ who is passionate about worshipping him and walking with him wherever he goes. You see a church who loves the next generation and wants their children and students to not just hear about Jesus, but to…

January 5, 2020

Kick Off 2020 Right Here are 5 great questions you can ask yourself to help set New Year’s Resolutions that will really make a difference: What’s one thing you can do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?

Feed the Poor, Save the Babies, Rescue the Girls

Feeding the poor, saving the babies, rescuing girls…First Gift—our end-of-year missions offering—is our coming together to help people in our city and around the world who need it most. Debbie and I always enjoy buying gifts for our family at Christmas time. Years back, though, we decided we…

Money, Money, Money

At this time of year, my mailboxes—both email and physical—are filled with just about as many requests for money as they are with Christmas wishes. (I know yours is the same!) You might be tempted to think of our First Gift offering as just “another request for money,” but it’s different in two big ways… 100% of a First Gift donation goes to the ministry you…

It’s All About Jesus!

I’m sure you’re already feeling the Christmas “squeeze”.  You know, the pressure to out decorate your neighbors, shopping for all the right gifts, way too many parties, and oh yeah family in town or traveling.   So much squeezing us into this false reality of what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.  We want to encourage you to be intentional this month and not…

Sculpting a Reluctant God

Sitting in front of the perfect stone, the sculptor begins his work, taking the image that is in his mind and slowly, with carefully calculated taps more than giant blows, what he sees in his mind becomes reality. Every person has an image of God. The image is either shaped by our life experiences — both good and bad — or we conform our image of God to that which God,…

The Devil, the Desert, and Deception

Part two of the journey was about to begin. Part one had lasted 30 earth years—a period of relative obscurity, during which Jesus lived and experienced life with all it’s struggles just like every other human. But when the day came for Jesus to be baptized by his cousin John, he knew his journey was about to transition from obscurity to radical visibility. There would be…
