As we prepare to enter our new home, we will be leaving our main campus at the end of July and enter a short period that we are calling our “Wilderness Journey.” Here are some important dates to remember:
→ July 30: Last Sunday for Worship Services @ Main & West Campus
→ August 6: Worship Services @ Savia Community Center 23780 Newhall Avenue, Newhall
→ October 8: Grand Opening at 25300 Rye Canyon
Crossroads offices will remain at our North Campus, and ministry will continue as normal during our time in the wilderness.
During our transition time, we are estimating that we are going to need an additional $150,000 “over and above” our normal giving in our Building Fund. This will assist us in covering additional costs associated with this delay, including:
→ Temporary Worship Location
→ Rent for our North Campus Offices
→ New Building Carrying Costs
We are asking that each person who attends Crossroads to prayerfully consider giving over and above your regular tithe to carry us through this wilderness period and into the new building. If you would take part in raising an additional $150,000, we ask that you make your offering to our Building Fund. Should you have any questions, please feel free to talk to Steve Stark, our Church Administrator, or one of our Elders.
Our Go Partner Spotlight of the month is James Townley; who is a missionary with Pioneers in Albania. His ministry reaches out to the Roma people; a minority group who are outcast from the society and who are unreached by the gospel. He does this by building relationships, meeting their physical and spiritual needs, and using soccer outreach. Through his outreach, he hopes to make disciples and plant an indigenous church. Please pray for James as he continues to learn the language and build relationships, as well as for his safety.
Baby Bottle Boomerang: If you haven’t already, don’t forget to pick up your bottle to fill with change! All proceeds will go to the Santa Clarita Valley Pregnancy Center. You can grab a bottle today at the Registration Cart or church offices. Please bring your filled bottle back to the cart by Father's Day, Sunday, June 18.

Elevate Summer 2017 Schedule: Just like last summer we are headed out of our church for student ministry!

Elevate Surf Club: Every third Sunday in June, July and August, $5 – Surf Club is for students who can surf or who want to learn. We meet outside the church office after 8 a.m. church service. We check the surf report, and then head out to the beach with the gnarliest waves! You need to bring $5, a wet suit, a board, and money for food. If you don’t have a board, we have a few to lend. Surf Club usually returns around 6:30 p.m. Hey parents, we need drivers if you want to join us!
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.
