Welcome to CrossWind Community Church’s webpage
Welcome to CrossWind Church. CrossWind Church is a church about people; people connecting to Jesus in a real and personal way. We are a new and contemporary full on rock church. We enjoy rock music, good coffee, and relevant messages that deal with real life issues.
Current Message Series:
Does Christmas itself need to be mended? Of course not. But our approach to it could use some tweaks here or there. For many of us, the Christmas is both a time of joy and celebration, and a time of stress and anxiety. Our financial obligations increase in December, and our schedule gets stretched to the limit. More is expected from us at work, at home, even at church. And the underlying pressure is that everything has to be perfect, like a Christmas card.
This series helps us to prepare to experience all the blessings of Christmas by mending our attitudes and our approach to the season. Using 4 passages from the gospel of Luke, we learn how to get ready to experience God’s presence, what to look for, what to focus on, and how to receive (and give) the greatest gift of all.

The top 10 things you need to know if you are coming to visit us!
1. We offer two services each Sunday morning, and one service on Monday nights, with a variety of styles to choose from.
Sunday: 9:00am is our contemplative service in the Kid’s Wing. The music will be acoustic, the message the same as all of our other services.
Sunday 10:30am is our modern praise experience. We have a rockin’ band. Join us, offer praise and allow the Word of God to transform your life.
Monday 7:00 pm is Mondays at A.J.s Bar and Grill. (1830 142nd Ave., Dorr, MI 49323)
Following Jesus isn’t convenient, but getting together with others on the journey is becoming more convenient. Here’s how it works: Come and eat, hear great music, and be inspired at the beginning of your week. A.J.’s is open and serving their normal menu. Eat as much or as little as you want. You pay for your own meal. You don’t have to order anything to join us.
2. Dress casually for all three services – no dress codes here.
3. When you enter the church building, there will be greeters and an information table. Ask for a tour or information. Someone will be willing to answer your questions or get you where you need to go.
4. Bring your kids along. CrossWind cares for children birth through fourth grade. More than just childcare, CrossWind Kid’s uses the best methods of communicating the truth of God’s Word in age appropriate and culturally relevant ways. We do this so that kids will be able to understand and apply God’s truth easily within the context of their own lives. Crosswind offers nursery and preschool at our Sunday 9:00 am service and nursery through 4th grade during the Sunday 10:30 am service.
CrossWind Student Ministry seeks to reach 5th-12th grade students with the truth of the Gospel, and to equip them to live lives that bring glory to Jesus. Students, grades 5th-8th and 9th-12th, gather during the Sunday 10:30 service for games, worship, teaching and discussion.
Your kids and students can also sit with you in service until they get comfortable here. CrossWind is a kid-friendly place!
5. Grab a cup of coffee or get some water before, during and after the Sunday services.
8. During worship, when the offering plate comes around, feel free to simply pass it on. We do not ask our guests to contribute.
9. Pastor Scott would love to meet you, so please feel free to introduce yourself after the service and say hi.
10. If it happens to be a communion Sunday – don’t freak out! In the United Methodist Church, communion is open to everyone, so feel free to join us; or you may choose to remain seated while others come forward.
Well, if you got all the way to the bottom of this list, you’re someone who has to courage to check out a new church. We really appreciate you taking time to visit and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The church’s mission comes from Jesus.
Making disciples for the transformation of the world.
Why do we exist? What do we want to be/look like?
Love in action…showing people Jesus.
We drop our facades and do life together – Not one of us is perfect, but God loves us even when we don’t “have our act together”. Because we can be ourselves we are free to welcome others…into our space, our lives and into a relationship with God.
We serve God by serving others – We serve the people in our world with listening ears, an open heart and helping hands. We also believe in the truth given by Mother Teresa: “Small things done with great love change the world.” Each of us is called to give back the love God has given us. One of the ways we do that publicly is through Servant Evangelism, a simple, straightforward approach that anyone can do to share God’s love.
Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on us – God provides us with hands and feet, hearts and voices to accomplish His work. We humbly work hard in all we do to serve His church. Yet it is God’s work and we ask daily for divine guidance and miraculous help.
We love people where they are and are willing to do most anything to help them meet Jesus. We know it’s never too late for someone to be who God intended them to be.
We grow our relationship with Christ on a daily basis – A disciple is a person who engages in personal holiness that brings a personal transformation on the inside and a life transformation outside. These transformations take place as our spiritual temperature is raised through daily time alone with God in prayer and the study of scripture, connecting with other Christ – followers and weekly public worship.
Hand2Hand is a resource for children facing hunger over the weekend. This is done by providing a bag with food on Fridays for the child to take home.
