24 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR EASTER

We believe prayer is the catalyst for our Easter service. So for 24 days, you can join us in prayer by texting ‘Easter’ to 661-771-3065. You’ll receive daily prayer topics along with Scripture to prepare your heart as you look toward celebrating Easter Sunday.

 

EASTER AT COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS 2017

Visit our Easter table in the lobby after each service to sign up for a team to serve with, receive free Easter apparel, and have any questions answered.

 

Before we can celebrate Easter Sunday, we must remember the price paid on Good Friday. Our Good Friday service is geared to be an intimate experience where you and your family can remember and reflect on the death of Jesus on the Cross. This year, we will hold one Good Friday service at College of the Canyons Stadium on April 14th at 6:30 p.m. This is a family-friendly service, and no childcare will be available. The service will last an hour and consist of worship, reflection, and communion with our church family.

 

PrEaster is an opportunity for your family to come together at the College of the Canyons field the day before Easter. We’ll have bounce houses and face painting for small children. We’ll also host a variety of pick-up games for adults and kids. Bring your family, a blanket, and a ball or two on April 15th from 5:00-9:00 p.m. for a PrEaster celebration together.

 

Easter Sunday on April 16th starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast for you and your family and our service starts at 9:00 a.m. Within our service, we will sing, celebrate, and worship with our church family and hear an encouraging message from our Senior Pastor.

 

Easter lilies are available at the Easter table. If you would like to honor a loved one at our Easter service, you can reserve an Easter lily for $20. You can take your lily home with you after service on April 16th.

 

GO MINISTRY

Our March Global Partner Spotlight is Tim and Julie Palamootil, who serve in Southeast Asia. Tim and Julie’s main ministry comes in the form of an orphanage to help underprivileged children.

TEN

TEN is a mission we launched on our ten-year anniversary, when the Crossroads family, by God's grace, commits to giving our lives away in three ways. First, is by planting ten healthy Bible-teaching churches. Second, is to build out and pay off the Valencia Crossroads' main campus within the next ten years. Last, is to identify, select, and financially underwrite the cost to send ten teenage orphans to the Master's University. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donating online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
