We understand that checking out a new church raises lots of questions. Will I fit in here? What do they believe? Who are the leaders? What's the vision of the church?
At Discover Cross Creek, we address these questions and more. This class is also the first step in our church membership process. Lunch will be provided, and childcare is available upon request.
Come join several of your fellow Cross Creekers for dinner at a local restaurant. The fun part is that you have no idea who you'll be dining with until you get there!

Here are the details:
Open to adults at least 18 years old.

Who knows who might show up?
Sometimes things seem to be going well in our lives, and sometimes things seem to fall apart around us. The prophet Habakkuk calls us to remember that no matter what, in good times and bad, God is faithful to his covenant people. Join us for this 4-week summer preaching series starting June 24.

We are participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS on April 7, 2018 in memory of, my father and the churches friend, Larry Ballowe.!
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS — it robs a person of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. And what’s even worse is that right now, there’s no cure.
Will you join us and join the movement to cure ALS? It’s easy to register online at http://web.alsa.org.
Thank you and I can’t wait to have you by my side at the Walk!
PS - If you can't make it on April 7th please consider making a donation towards ALS in memory of my father. Thank you!!!

Palm Sunday - March 25 at 10:30am. On Palm Sunday we remember Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. When Jesus entered Jerusalem that day, he made it clear that he was the long-awaited Messiah King. And yet he overturned expectations by coming in weakness instead of power, compelled by love for his Father and for his people whom he came to save. Our children will be waving their palm branches as we sing our praise to the Messiah King.
Maundy Thursday - March 29 at 6:30pm. At this dinner service we'll reflect on the night that Jesus spent with his disciples in the Upper Room, as he used the occasion of the Passover meal to reveal the meaning of his death. You and your family are invited to join us for a simple soup and bread supper at 6:30pm. Our dinner will be followed by a time of worship that will include a brief message and an observance of the Lord's Supper. (No childcare - children of all ages are invited to attend!) There is no cost, but we are asking for volunteers to sign up to bring soup and/or bread. Please sign up here!
Good Friday - March 30 at 7:00pm. This will be a somber service in which we narrate and remember the events of Jesus' death. We'll have a special musical ensemble with Scripture readings focused on the words of Jesus on the cross. (There will be no childcare.)
Easter Sunday - April 1 at 9:00 and 10:30am. All of our hopes and expectations are realized in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, making Easter the most celebrative day of the year! Join us at one of our two worship services which will include special activities for our children, with fellowship time between services.
Come and join us for a fun, family evening. The church will provide food (dinner/smores on Friday and breakfast on Saturday), drinks, etc. Please bring your camping supplies (tents, sleeping bags, chairs, etc). Suggested donation is $20 per family.

"Introducing a new chapter in Jacksonville Baseball......the JACKSONVILLE JUMBO SHRIMP, embracing the heart of Jacksonville's identity and heritage. As Florida's largest city, yet in many ways a richly connected and close-knit community, Jacksonville is truly a Big Small Town. It has unique water geography as the River City on the First Coast.
The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp represents those themes and expresses the affordable family fun of Minor League Baseball.At the ballpark, only the team name, colors, and look on the field will change as part of the new identity. We are still committed to delivering the best possible fan experience, entertainment and affordable family fun at the ballpark, and be actively involved in the Jacksonville community.
"Silent Movie Night (Shhhh....)The Jumbo Shrimp are proud to partner with Norman Studios for Silent Movie Night. The whole game will be done silent-movie style, with no PA announcements, no audible cheering and a black & white video board. Fans will be encouraged to use hand signals to cheer, as silence is the theme of the night!"
