North Crestview Campus eLetter
The countdown is on!
Community Serve Day is just around the corner. And boy, are we excited!
On Saturday, March 2 from 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., we're taking a day off from our usual Saturday routines to come together as a community and give back. It's all about others, and we want to make a positive impact on the lives of those around us. Our North Crestview campus will be pouring love into Crestview High School with appreciation bags and a beautification event. You can serve by cleaning windows, picking weeds, trimming plants, or even power washing. And if that's not your jam, we also need card writers and bag fillers. Everyone is welcome; we will have opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to serve.
Now, I know you're probably wondering, "How can I be a part of this awesome event?" Well, fret not! We've got you covered. Just click HERE to sign up for our Community Serve Day. If you are in a life group and want to serve together, be sure to add that into the notes section as you sign up. We will ensure you are partnered with your group.
Mark your calendars and let's unleash our inner "helpful neighbors" together on March 2nd! Don't forget to invite your friends and family too – the more, the merrier! Together, we can achieve incredible things and create a lasting impact that will make our community proud. Trust me, there's no better feeling than seeing the smiles on people's faces as we work side by side to make our community a better place.
I can't wait to see you there, ready to make a difference (and have an absolute blast doing it)!
Dayna Walters, Associate Minister
News & Announcements
"MORE BLESSED" | series begins February 18
- February 18 - More Blessed
- February 25 - How Generosity Changed My Life
During this two-week series, we will explore generosity in a way that encourages giving to express the abundance of God’s grace in our lives instead of obligation or religious doctrine. When we live out this model of generosity, our giving inspires those around us and shows how everyone has something to give.

FEBRUARY PRESCHOOL FOCUS | FOOD TRUCKS
There is a food truck for just about every kind of food, and when the food trucks are lined up, the whole community comes out. Some people like noodles. Some people like tacos. Some people like hot dogs. And others head straight for the funnel cakes! Next time you see a row of food trucks look around at all the people in line. Take time to thank Jesus because Jesus loves everyone. Jesus loves the sour as well as the sweet; the spicy as well as the mild; the simple as well as the complicated; your favorites and your not-so-favorites. Jesus loves everyone.
FEBRUARY ELEMENTARY FOCUS | AN ADVENTRUE IN KINDNESS
God showed kindness by sending Jesus for us—even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of God’s love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit. And when you show kindness to others, you give them a glimpse into the heart of God, and how much God loves them. Kindness should be a characteristic of people who follow Jesus. Not only did Jesus model kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated.

Junto Tribe Men's Weekend
Our world desperately needs more Godly men of legacy - men who infiltrate, interrupt, and influence the culture, because they are image-bearers of the King they represent. Therefore, Junto Tribe Ministries is hosting “Infil”, a weekend men's encounter to empower men to discern their kingdom identity, define their strategic area of operations, and do every area of life for the Lord. The event will be hosted March 8-10 in Marianna, FL, costing $139 per person. Find out more and register here.
Love like Jesus. Serve like Jesus.
We are never more like Jesus than when we’re serving others, and in addition to serving our community, there are several opportunities to serve right here at our campus! In addition, with Easter at Crosspoint quickly approaching, we will have a number of new and returning guests and families to worship with us. Our heart is always to give our guests and attendees a warm welcome and incredible experience. If you consider Crosspoint your “home” church, this Easter we ask you to prayerfully consider serving on a volunteer team at one of our four Easter services to help provide this experience.
· Crosspoint Kids: Volunteers are needed to serve in the nursery, pre-school, and elementary age groups at the 8:00, 9:30, or 11:00 a.m. services.
· Creative Arts: Volunteers are needed to serve in the tech booth for the 8:00, 9:30, or 11:00 a.m. services.
· Guest Services: Volunteers are needed to serve breakfast at the 8:00 a.m. service, and welcome guests in the parking lot and Auditorium at the 8:00, 9:30, or 11:00 a.m. services.
· Lawn Care Team: Volunteers are needed to serve on a one Saturday a-month basis to help us create an exquisite first impression.
