Ministries of Crossroads
A core value at Crossroads is a community. One of the best ways to experience community is through being part of a life group.
Life Group meetings take place both in homes throughout the area and at the church facility. You can click HERE to see the various groups that are meeting at this time.

Junior High Ministry (6th-8th Grade)
Sunday Mornings: Classes for Jr. High Youth start at 9 AM
Wednesday Evenings: Jr. High students join Sr. High for fellowship, snacks, games and worship, starting at 6:30 PM til 7:30 PM. Then, Jr. High students break off for a time of study and discussion of God's Word together, contextualized for their particular age group and perspective.
Senior High Ministry (9th-12th Grade)
Our vision is for each individual (student, leader, volunteer) that comes through our Student Ministry to experience and walk faithfully in 3 biblical life conversions:
- Relationally with Christ
- Relationally with each other and with the local church body
- Missionally with the Great Commission and with Christ's Spirit
It's all about Jesus!
Our Senior High Ministry meets on Sunday mornings at 9 AM in the Sprung building for smaller group bible study and discussion. On Wednesday nights our entire Student Ministry (both Jr. High and Sr. High) meets at 6 PM for a focused time of prayer and youth-led worship. Then, our Sr. High separately breaks off for a time of fellowship and Gospel-centered study of God's Word together.
We often have several events per month, including: Summer camps and trips, Friday Night Popcorn and Movie nights, "The Loft" acoustic worship sessions, game nights, weekend retreats, movie theater get-togethers, and more!
More than just the young adult ministry of Crossroads, our College Ministry is a group of young adults that are passionate about knowing Jesus and loving Him with everything. Over the last several years, we have watched God grow our hearts in the place of intercession, justice, and passion for His glory. This has come out of a weekly gathering on Sunday mornings as well different events like the Cry. For many the last several years we have taken groups to the Passion conferences and seen God change lives and awaken hearts to live for His glory. Our groups have a mixture of young adults, 18 and 20-somethings that are in college, out of college, in career, out of career, you name it- you’ll probably fit right in! Most importantly we are all moving towards Jesus. Feel free to contact us with any more questions and we would be more than happy to get more information for you.
For Sunday Services we have a 15 passenger van that picks up students at LeTourneau University when school is in session. They arrive at Longview Hall at 8:25 am and 9:20 am and waits for approximately 15 minutes.
Sunday Mornings 9:00 a.m.
Sunday Schools - We have Sunday schools for all ages. The classes are age specific up through college. There are usually more than one class offered for adults.
For those considering membership at Crossroads, we offer a course titled Next Step: Discovering Crossroads. This class covers the history of Crossroads, along with our mission and vision. Statement of faith and salvation are covered as well. Ministries are introduced and life group leaders also attend, getting a chance to get to know those who are new to our church. The class concludes with a personal visit with one of our pastors to discuss any remaining questions about joining our church. Those who join are announced before the church body on a Sunday morning.
While most life groups meet at another time, we typically have one or two life groups meeting at t 9:00 am Sunday. These groups come together and discuss biblical applications of sermons and to just enjoy sharing life together.
Wednesday Evenings 6:30 p.m.
A group of prayer warriors get together and pray for the service and needs of the body.
These classes will focus on different needs of the body, covering a wide range of topics at different times. Examples include, biblical interpretation, marriage, parenting, and leadership.

Outings: We typically have an annual camping outing and a "guns and grills" outing each year. These are really fun and times for bonding with each other.
This team works together on Sunday mornings to help guests feel connected. With each guest God sends our way we have an opportunity to help them move forward in their journey towards Christ. Sincere friendliness, attention to names, taking time to connect with guests and knowledgable answers to questions about Crossroads are what this team is all about.
We try to enhance our services with visual and audio aids. We think you will enjoy our sound, projection and lighting systems. Sermons are recorded in both audio and video versions for viewing online. DVDs are also available upon request. Special events video creations are our specialty!
Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that allows individuals to quiet their hearts, seek their God and find Him! This is done through selecting songs that are Cross-Centered, God Exalting and rich in theology. Our musical style is primarily contemporary, including songs from such artists as Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche, Third Day, Hillsong, Sovereign Grace Music, and much more. If you come and meet with your Creator and He inspires and speaks to your heart as you sing, we know we’ve brought pleasure to our King!
