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.

Walk to Defeat ALS

ALS 2018.jpg

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

Thank you and I can’t wait to have you by my side at the Walk!


Katie Radford

PS - If you can't make it on April 7th please consider making a donation towards ALS in memory of my father. Thank you!!!

Holy Week at Cross Creek

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!

Artwork-Good Friday2018.PNG

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 2018.png

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.
