Sunday Services


During this unique time of COVID-19, Crosswood Church offers an online option for joining us in worship on a weekly basis.  In partnership with Rev. David Hoffman of Marion Epworth United Methodist Church, we produce and post a worship service on our YouTube channel every Sunday morning at 8:30am.  You are most welcome to join us in worship online!


Every Sunday morning at 9:30am, you are also welcome to join us in the Crosswood parking lot (1551 Richland Road, Marion) for a drive-in worship service.  Simply pull into a parking spot and tune your car radio to 106.5FM.  If you're ready to be inside the Crosswood sanctuary for in-person worship services, we're open!  You can join us each Sunday morning at 9:30am inside the building, socially distanced with masks.  CLICK HERE for our electronic bulletin for our in-person and drive-in service. 


In our online worship services with Marion Epworth United Methodist Church, we cherish liturgy and classic hymns to the majestic sound of a pipe organ.  In our drive-in and in-person worship services at Crosswood, we cherish an informal, personable style and classic hymns and praise songs to the touch of a grand piano and acoustic guitars.  In all our worship services, you will experience voices lifting high in praise of God, an energetic congregation joining in hymns, and passionate prayer and preaching from God's Word.

We want to create an energetic, uplifting, and Spirit-filled worship experience that connects people to our congregation in love, to a cause greater than themselves, to the saving work of Jesus Christ, and to the kind of worship that fills your soul and charges your spiritual batteries for the week ahead.

Come as you are to Crosswood!  Everyone is welcome.  Our style is informal and our dress is casual.  The drive-in and in-person service lasts approximately 50 minutes.

What we believe

We believe each of us is called to be loving and faithful to the needs of the people of the world – and Jesus Christ is the ideal model for us.  Jesus gave us a perfect example of what it means to lovingly and faithfully minister to all people and to honor the dignity, worth, and uniqueness of everyone as God created them to be.  So, we welcome all people into the Crosswood church family.

We believe each of us is a work in progress, so we cooperate with God’s Holy Spirit on a moment-by-moment basis to become more and more Christlike in our thoughts, words, and deeds.  We believe spiritual transformation occurs when we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  The Bible is an instruction manual for this relationship.  The goal of the spiritual life is to more closely resemble Jesus in our actions, words, and attitudes – and to join God in the work God is doing to redeem and renew the world, starting right here in our own community.

We strive to befriend all people and to minister among and with them, particularly here in the Marion Area.  We believe it's important to build faith as early as possible in a person’s life, so we prioritize our Christian Preschool and our Children’s Ministry programs.  Together, we support the continual spiritual growth of the church and its people through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.
