Sunday Services

8:30AM - ONLINE WORSHIP SERVICE:

Crosswood Church offers an online option for joining us in worship on a weekly basis.  In partnership with 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!

9:30AM - IN-PERSON & DRIVE-IN WORSHIP SERVICE:

Crosswood worships at 9:30am on Sunday mornings in-person in our beautiful, modern multi-use sanctuary.  We also broadcast our live worship service out to our church parking lot on 106.5FM, for those who would like to join us "drive-in" style.  For those joining us inside for church, disposable masks are available at the entrance for those who would like to wear one, and hand sanitizer is available throughout the building.

OUR STYLE:

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 and a grand piano.  In our drive-in and in-person worship services at Crosswood, we cherish an informal, personable style, with classic hymns and praise songs to the touch of a grand piano and acoustic guitars.  In all our worship services, you will experience voices lifted high in praise of God, an energetic congregation joining in hymns, passionate prayer, and preaching from God's Word.

We create an energetic, uplifting, and Spirit-filled worship experience that connects people to our congregation in love, to a cause greater than ourselves, 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.  Our in-person service lasts approximately one hour.

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 Ministry program.  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.
