Why Should You Experience CrossRoads Church
@ the Peosta Community Centre?

1. A group of people to help you in every day life…

We call these Community Groups. Community groups are a way to connect and live life with others.

2. A place for Men…

We get stuff like thinking no way God could ever use a guy like me; feeling like a failure as a dad and husband; inner rage; financial stress, the frustration of not getting enough sex or sleep, awkwardness in social settings, the fear of being put on the spot (which will not happen here).
We engineer stuff with you in mind. The teachings are relevant and quickly get to the point. We use language you’ll understand. And we do stuff like boating, fishing, softball, golf, skeet shooting, hunting, and community sports.
Jesus was God in a body. He was no wuss as some would portray him. Jesus wasn’t passive, effeminate, or politically correct and He is not calling CrossRoads or you to be passive, effeminate, or politically correct. Jesus was courageous, confrontational, powerful in every way, sacrificial in lifestyle, morally and spiritually rock solid, focused on the welfare of others, full of grace and humility. He is calling men at CrossRoads and men like you to follow Him.

3. A place where Ladies find it easy to connect…

At CrossRoads ladies discover the quality of acceptance and love that results in lasting relationships. Singleness, marriage, divorce, widowed, family issues, childcare issues, employment issues, too much housework, body image issues, disease, chronic pain, abuse, addictions, grief, bitterness, loneliness – no matter what you’re going through or what season of life you’re in, there are ladies here who want to connect with you and journey with you through life. We spend time together, share life together, laugh together, cry together and we want you to join us.

4. The kids love this place…

We love children and have engineered an age appropriate curriculum just for them! CrossRoads Kids Church happens during the adult worship service and is a high energy, interactive program where the Bible comes alive every Sunday morning. We believe in teaching children about Jesus in a fun and exciting way that stimulates participation and growth.  Children learn to love Jesus, love one another and live the mission through the use of age appropriate and interactive Bible stories, drama, music, memory verses, art and games.

5. Students are equipped for life…

We help equip our students so they can make the most important choices of their lives:
1. Education and career choices,
2. Friendship choices,
3. Dating and marriage choices and, most importantly,
4. The choice to love and trust Jesus and his words even in challenging environments like the classroom, hallway or college campus. We believe in our students and their call by Jesus to impact the world they live in.

6. The offer of a friend you can trust to mentor you in the Christian life…

If you desire individualized help in the Christian life we have volunteers, singles and couples, you can choose from that are trained to help you grow.

7. Classes and Seminars  (most are free of charge) …

From time to time we offer classes or seminars on various subjects like parenting, money management, how to read the bible, and understanding who you are and how you are made.

8. Leadership development…

If you feel God may be calling you into leadership such as a Community Group Leader, Volunteer Team Leader, or Ministry Leader, please contact one of our staff. We would love to mentor you in your journey no matter your history or education.

9. We love and serve our community…

We value the people, organizations and businesses of Peosta and Western Dubuque. We have a food pantry for those in need in the area.  It is FREE for those who have a need.

10. Unity in Diversity…

We are from many different Christian faith backgrounds and find the input from different perspectives healthy and helpful. We unify over the essentials emphasized in the Bible. We refuse to divide over the non-emphasized or harder to interpret portions in the Bible.

11. We’re all about Jesus and we focus on His priorities…

Jesus’ priorities:

Love God
Our greatest desire is to grow in love for God by knowing, trusting, and obeying Him.
Love One Another
Our second greatest desire is to grow in love for each other by befriending, honoring, and serving each other.
Live the Mission
Our third greatest desire is to live the mission by loving, serving, and sharing the good news of Jesus, Who He Is, Why He Came and What He Accomplished, with everyone throughout our community and the world.

12. Engaging, practical, Jesus-Centered teaching…

Our focus is to know Jesus more through what is revealed about him in the Bible. As we learn about him we get to relevant points quickly so we can apply them to our life.  We won’t waste your time on boring trivia or religious mumbo jumbo.
Check out a message.

13. An exciting, lively worship experience…

We love to sing songs about Jesus and to Jesus using great sounding instruments like drums, guitars (electric, acoustic, bass) and keyboards.

14. A caring, Jesus-centered nursery…

Nursery is provided during our worship service. We strive to provide a safe, joyous interactive learning environment with age appropriate Bible stories, music, art and games. We want the Bible to come alive for our children, age 4 and under, who are just getting to know who God is.

15. The coffee around here is really good…

The friendships are even better.

16. We’d like to be a new family to you.

We’re a group of kinda normal folks with issues just like you. You’ll fit in great.

We welcome your visit.  Stop by our Connect Table and say Hi. You won’t be disappointed!
