Origin Stories

The heroes of our faith loom large in the epic stories - our stories. Men and women like us, broken and weak, but with courage to believe that our God keeps His promises. Every story pointing to the Promised One. Every act of faith helping us believe, again, that God still tells His story in the lives of those who live by faith.

Answering God’s Call

Peter is possibly one of the most relatable of Jesus' disciples that we read of in scripture. A normal man, a tradesman, with plans of his own, until one day God called him to something greater. What can and will God do with us if we learn, like Peter, to answer God's call.

Only One Life

James the brother of Jesus, did not believe Jesus was the Messiah, but his life was radically changed when he saw his brother resurrected. He lived the rest of his life seeking to lead others to faith in Jesus. We all get only one life, what will you do with yours?

Running From God: Jonah

In all of our stories, there are times of struggle in obeying the voice of God. Today we look at one who ran from God's grand invitation to enter into His story. Jonah, like each of us, had a choice to obey or not. Jonah chose to say "No!"


September 1, 2019 - Aaron Day, Lead Pastor Crosswater Community Church

"It's not me, it's GOD." This sounds so simple and trite and yet it really is the truth for salvation and living salvation out. Today we take a look at how a transformed life is All GOD and how HE includes us, by HIS grace, to be a part of this miracle of new life in JESUS!


August 25, 2019 - Dan Gerke, Pastor of Facilities

Thankfully, God has given us examples in scripture to learn from, good and bad. In Abram we see both as he steps out in faith but is shaken along the way. The biggest mistake we can make is not listening and missing the call. God give us ears to hear and hearts to obey.
