Singles

 

Single adults of all ages honor God by taking the truth about who we are in Christ and practicing it in our daily lives.

Small Groups

 

Bible Study and prayer are essential to Christian growth. In addition to classes and service areas, small groups are a way to break down the “big church” into smaller affinity and age-related groups, meeting the various needs in the church body. For those interested in hosting or facilitating a small group, please contact Marilyn at (530) 751-9168 or (916) 768-7187.

Serve & Volunteer Ministry

We believe that people who are growing in love for Christ and His church have a desire to show that love. One of the best ways to do that is by serving others. There are many ways and places to serve. We encourage you to get involved and want to help you find your place of service.

It takes a volunteer force to carry out the number of activities and events on our church calendar. You’ll find there are thousands of ways to serve – from rocking a baby on Sunday mornings – to leading a small group – assisting with children’s and student activities, preparation of meals – the opportunities are endless. Let us help you find out just how rewarding and fun serving others can be!

 

It is our goal to help place the right people in the right places for the right reasons!

 

Just as the human body cannot function properly unless the eyes, ears, and hands each do their part, so the Body of Christ (the Church) cannot function as God intended without each believer doing his or her part. 1 Corinthians 12 shows us that we all have a place to serve in the church and that we all play a vital role in the body of Christ. The body of believers at Crossroads relies upon volunteers to help in fulfilling the calling that God has given us as a church.
We have a variety of ministries that encompass many different talents and passions. Whatever your talents and passions are, we have a place for you! If your schedule does not allow you to serve on an ongoing basis, we also have a variety of one-time service opportunities.

If you are interested in volunteering at Crossroads, completing our quick Worker’s Survey Form will help us get you started in the right place.

Outreach Ministry

 

Outreach begins outside the four walls or our church. We believe in using every means possible to catch the attention of those who need Christ. We host many events such as the Celebrate America Outdoor Concert and BBQ in the street on July 3rd, to the Christmas Drive Thru, Western Round-Up, Wild Game Feed and the Picnic in the Park. We use the printed page, gospel tracts, billboards, CDs, DVDs, social media, the web, and any other method that might be needed to reach people.

 

We offer bus transportation to the second service on Sunday mornings, visit people in jail, help people in need with food and clothes, and minister in the local schools and parks. We do hospital and care facility visitations.

 

Bus
CCC offers bus transportation on Sunday mornings to our 11:00 AM service. We pick up in Yuba City, Marysville, Olivehurst and Linda. If you are interested in riding the bus call the church office at (530) 751-9168 and we’ll make sure you have a ride.

 

Jail
Crossroads jail ministry is actively involved in the jails in Yuba and Sutter counties as well as the Juvenile Hall in Marysville. When they are released from incarceration, they are welcomed and wanted at Crossroads Community Church. In fact, the inmates upon discharge are told: “The first place you should go is CCC, they will help you with clothes, food and a hot meal, but most of all they will love you.”

 

Bible studies in restaurants

Recovery Ministry

The recovery ministry is an integral part of Crossroads Community Church. The enemy makes promises he cannot keep and leaves us a long life road destroyed and broken. Our ministry is to put our hand out and lift up each person who has been wounded and bruised and offer a way out. What Satan meant for bad, God uses for good. Our programs are designed to give men and women another chance because we serve the God of second chances.

 

Road to Recovery (Christian 12 Step)
Our support and recovery group provide opportunities for individuals dealing with alcohol and drug addiction to meet with others who face similar challenges. Biblical principles give hope to people seeking freedom from their bondage. These groups meet every Sunday evening from 7:00-8:00 PM

Call Robert at (530) 674-1049 for more information.

 

Joshua House Men’s Center
This ministry is a one year 24/7 live-in men’s program for those who have overwhelming life-controlling addictions that rob them of having a real life, the life that God has planned for them. Students learn about God and learn to apply this knowledge to their lives through worship, classes, studying, homework, vocational training, working, enjoying lots of good food and fellowship and some free time.

Prayer Ministry

We believe that when we pray we invite God’s power to be released. Dependence on God through prayer is foundational to our church and provides a solid base for all we do. The Prayer Ministry at CCC is a support to people undergoing challenges in all areas of everyday life. If you have a prayer request, we would be honored to pray for you. If this is an emergency, please call the main church number at (530) 751-9168 during office hours or (916) 761-0552 after hours.

Prayer Partners
This compassionate team prays for and with individuals and families during the prayer time in each of the services.

 

Prayer Chain
Jim Watt heads up our Prayer Chain. When requests are submitted, Jim emails them to our church body and prayer partners around the world. Prayer requests are also passed to prayer partners via the telephone.

 

Tuesday Night Men’s Prayer Group
Men meet at 6:30 PM every Tuesday night to pray for the needs of our country, our state, our community, our church, and prayer requests which they have received. This prayer group is under the leadership of Jim Watt.

Media Ministry

 

Audio/Video/Lighting

All of our volunteer tech teams who handle audio/video/lighting, play an integral part of setting the atmosphere for worship and provide cds, dvds, podcasts and video streaming on the world wide web. AVL Director Jason Arsenault heads up a team of volunteers who for the most part go unnoticed because of good sound, good lighting and good video.
