Churchwide Charlotte Missions Trip

 

We are so excited to take a trip back to Charlotte and serve alongside our brothers and sisters at King’s Church. This is a church-wide mission trip and we are praying that God will bring church members of all ages to GO to Charlotte. Cost is $50 per adult (infants – 18 years old are free). This does not transportation or lodging. See below for more details and to register.

 

FRESHMAN MOVE-IN

 

Join us for a unique missional opportunity to engage and serve over 4,000 new students that will be moving to Clemson Saturday, August 18. Come hold a door, carry a box, or engage parents as we move students into their dorm. We will meet in the foyer of the Crosspoint Auditorium at 8:30 AM. Please wear your Crosspoint shirt if you have one, and don’t worry if you don’t have one — we’ll give you one when you arrive!

Loving our community

 

We want to see the gospel permeate our community as we display and declare the love of God in many ways. This happens through individuals living on mission, small groups serving together, and the church engaging the lost as the body of Christ.

 

Three levels of involvement

 

1) You

The normal Christian life includes sharing the good news with the people in around us: family, neighbors, friends and co-workers. We want to equip every believer to share the gospel with whoever they encounter wherever they live, work, and play.

 

2) Groups

We have nearly 40 small groups that pursue growth through living on mission together. We desire that our groups serve in a gospel opportunity at least once per semester, whether through evangelism or through serving together in one of the outreach opportunities.

 

3) Church

By serving alongside one another corporately, we display Jesus’ worth to our community as a witness to the gospel. 

Outreach Opportunities
