The CORE 4: What We Do

The Core 4

Love, Connect, Grow, Serve

At The Crossing, we focus on our Core4: Love, Connect, Serve, Grow. We embrace these 4 values because we believe they best enable us to focus on the life of Jesus Christ and let Him live in and through us.

In fact, we've turned them into a simple yet deep, easy to follow track that dovetails with the normal rhythms of Christian Life.

EVERY MINISTRY WE OFFER REVOLVES AROUND THE CORE 4! Adults, Singles, Men, Women, Teens, Kids, etc. Everything we do is simple yet deep and streamlined.

  • LOVE. When asked what God's greatest command was, Jesus responded "to love the LORD your God with all your heart, mind, soul, & strength...and to love your neighbor as yourself." Love God, Love People. Sunday services (10am) focus on LOVE.
  • CONNECT. We believe connections, or relationships, are vitally important and it's impossible to live the Christian faith without them. Sin destroys our ability to walk alongside each other in encouraging life-giving ways. On the eve of his resurrection, Jesus began knitting together his church. The New Testament says we are "one body" "one temple" "one people" all "in Christ." We are connected in Christ and to one another. Life isn't lived in the abstract, and our relationships must be as real as the dirt under our feet. LifeGroups (weekly gatherings of small groups) focus on strengthening our CONNECTIONS. Many folks meet in our Common Grounds Cafe to connect!
  • GROW
  • We focus on GROW in two specific ways:

    1) In Wednesday Services (7pm) we engage the same Scripture from

    Sunday, yet on a much deeper level.

    2) Weekly GROWTH track. Each week we do two take home

    readings/activities designed to steep us in Scriptures from Sunday.


  • Jesus is more than the example of a servant, He is THE SERVANT in

    whom all of our efforts get swept up into. In all things, we serve as if

    we are serving Jesus Christ.

    The best ways you can serve are to look for opportunities around you

    in everyday life. Serve your friends, family members, serve strangers,

    and yes serve your enemies. Serve those at your school and in your



    Every 6th-7th Sunday, The Crossing moves it's service to 9:00am,

    ends at 10:00am, and breaks into teams to SERVE McCalla between


    Why during church hours? People have reasons for not being at church, perhaps they've never heard about Jesus Christ, perhaps they've had bad experiences with a church. We want to win people to Jesus through authentic love and truth in action! We do all kinds of individual & community service.

    Think about it! How many churches go outside their walls on a

    regular Sunday basis to bless their community? At times the

    Church and Christians have had a reputation for being too introverted.

    We're trying to do corrective eye surgery! We want everyone around

    to SEE what God is like, what His Church is like, what Christianity is

    is all about. For that, they need to SEE us serving in love.

    missional nature of our 7TH SUNDAY OUTREACH.
