    “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”  Representing Jesus means being a mouthpiece for truth & justice.  Today we are faced with so many injustices and lies.  From the mantra of “fake news” to racial injustices we are confronted on a daily basis with these realities.  This series will focus on God’s call in Micah 6:8 to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before our God.

    One of the wonderful results of a life transformed by Jesus Christ is the unique “calling” Jesus gives each person of faith. That calling is to represent Him to the people around us. Each follower of Jesus has a distinct undertaking of influencing people for Jesus in the everyday movements of our lives—something we call our “FRONTLINE.” In this series, “Represent,” we’ll look at the practical implications of representing Jesus with the whole of our lives.

    The ability to live out, as well as communicate the Good News of Jesus is a stunning privilege and a responsibility of every Christ-follower. The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes..."  If followers of Jesus are timid or unsure of who Jesus is and why he came, we'll more likely be ashamed to communicate Christ’s message. This series will help you represent Jesus with others on your Front Line more confidently

    Ever wondered why people around us aren’t interested in God? Maybe we’ve never given them a reason to be. However, if we’re real with people they will be real with us. We can make Jesus relevant and real in the lives of others, not by arguing them into the kingdom, but by showing them what a Christ-follower looks like—someone who engages with the community, who thoughtfully inquires about sensitive, ultimate issues, and who encourages others by our loving presence. There is an art to loving your neighbor as yourself. This final three-part series by Pastor Tim as Lead Pastor of CrossWinds addresses his heart for reaching people with the Good News of Jesus.

    How different would the world look if everyone got what they deserved? Would your salary be the same? What would our prisons look like? Would nice guys finish first or last? Or would things be a lot worse? The four-part Life Lesson series at CrossWinds called, I Deserve It, takes a look at the things we actually deserve that God’s forgiveness spares us from: death, condemnation, rejection, and exclusion.

  • February 26 - March 12, 2017


    Life doesn’t always go the way we expect. We pray to God for help and guidance. But sometimes it seems like even though we pray with faith, God doesn’t do what we’ve asked. We seek Him, but don’t feel His presence. We go through pain, but our cries for relief seem to go unanswered. Sometimes, our lives just don’t make sense. In this three-part Life Lesson series at CrossWinds, we’ll take a close look at what we can do “When God Doesn't Make Sense.”

  • January 8 - February 12, 2017


    Most of us are pretty ordinary people.  That's not a bad thing.  The world consists of and functions by ordinary people who, at times, do uncommon things.  The Bible is brimming with ordinary people who have uncommon stories.  We can learn a lot from them.  In this new CrossWinds series, "Ordinary People - Uncommon Stories", we will look at how God works in and through your life to work out His power and purposes.  What's your story?
