Frequently Asked Questions
When and where do you meet?
We meet Sundays at 10:30 a.m. at 2301 Airport Thruway in Columbus, Ga. (31904). Click here for directions.
What can I expect on Sunday mornings?
Our Sunday morning service focuses on Jesus and his good news as we read the Bible, hear preaching from it and respond in song. We occasionally use responsive readings, traditional creeds and familiar hymns, but we also incorporate more “modern” styles and songs as well. We love Jesus and want to foster a worshipful environment that points to him, regardless of style or format. Communion is available for individuals every week, but we participate as a church on the first Sunday of every month. As for clothing, we do not have a “dress code,” so wear what you like.
Is there anything for my children?
We have a nursery for infants to three-year-olds where your child will be cared for by people who love babies and toddlers. For the four- and five-year-olds and first-graders CrossPointe offers a ministry that will care for and point your children to Jesus Christ in an age-appropriate way. For 2nd–5th grades, Kids’ Church is a place where your children will learn about God, make lots of friends, and have fun. Click here for more information.
How do I become a member of CrossPointe?
It’s very important to confirm that CrossPointe’s the right church for you and to explain the type of commitment expected from members. The membership process involves a three-part class called Starting Pointe, which takes place over the course of a weekend. After you’ve completed the class and met with the elders, you may join the church at our next “One Another” member meeting, when we’ll introduce you to the rest of the church. We announce upcoming Starting Pointe dates at our Sunday morning service and on this website, but if you’d like more information please e-mail Robert Ward.
Is there a midweek meeting?
Throughout the year we host Midweek Fellowships, which consist of a meal and teaching, usually for a set number of weeks. When Midweek Fellowship is scheduled, we meet Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. and childcare (as well as activities for elementary-aged children and middle schoolers) is available.
For regular interaction and participation in the life of CrossPointe, please consider joining a Community Group.
What are Community Groups?
Community Groups are small groups (10–15 people) committed to the gospel, community of believers and mission of the church. Groups are long-term by nature though we encourage groups to plant new ones as they grow. Group leaders are trained to lead the group in regularly studying Scripture, shepherding and praying for one another, and reaching neighbors and friends with the gospel. Groups may be joined at any time. You can read more about Community Groups here.
How can I get involved at CrossPointe?
As the previous question suggests, Community Groups are the best way to get involved at CrossPointe. Beyond joining a group, visitors are encouraged to attend CrossPointe faithfully and begin serving as they see the need. Common areas of service are the children’s nursery, Kids’ Church, youth ministry, worship & tech team and various other Sunday morning responsibilities (like greeters and ushers). For more contact information or questions, please e-mail Robert Ward.
Is CrossPointe part of any denomination?
For the purpose of cooperation in both local and foreign missions, CrossPointe Church partners with the Southern Baptist Convention and affirms the Baptist Faith & Message. It is important to mention that while we may seek the assistance and counsel of other like-minded churches in matters of special concern to us, the decision of no other church, group of churches or association shall at any time be acknowledged as binding on CrossPointe.
