Inviting our neighbors to discover, enjoy, and share the life Jesus offers… Together.

On YouTubeIn-Person
What we believe:

There is a God.

He loves you and he is for you.

He is not disinterested or mad at you.

He wants you to know, trust, and love him as a good and perfect heavenly father.

He became a human, Jesus.

Jesus showed us what God is really like and died and rose again to restore our relationship with him and with one another.

He invites everyone to enjoy a transforming, meaningful, and relational life through his love… now and forever.

A little different...

More below, but you’ll discover we intentionally do things a little different around here…

  • Gatherings 2x per month, with music, communion, a message, followed by fellowship and treats.
  • Weekly small groups in homes
  • “Sermons” are only online, weekly
  • Focus on community, loving neighbor, being FOR Salem.
Leadership + Teamwork

Crosscreek relies on the support and efforts of an amazing list of contributors. Some attend staff meetings, comprise our Board of Directors, do the accounting, play music, serve at our gatherings, cook food for Youth Connect, lead a Connect Group, and help with our online content. Let us know if you’re interested in finding ways to plug in. Contact us via our Welcome Form.

Experience community, simply.

We gather as a community on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month. There are Kids’ environments available pre-k through Grade 5, but they are also welcome to stay with you. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What can we expect?

– A few simple songs (usually a guitar and maybe a violin) to sing along to or just listen.
– A short encouraging message or Bible passage reading.
– Communion together (all are welcome at the table, but you can also skip this).
– Another song and a simple prayer.
– Afterwards, feel free to hang out and enjoy a treat while you meet some folks.

How many are at your gatherings?

– Between 20 and 40 people gather in the main room. It just depends!

Do I need to believe in Jesus to attend?

No. We created this church in 2017 to be a place where faith in Jesus can be explored and isn’t assumed or expected. We welcome your questions, your doubts, and the process of faith. You don’t have to believe to belong. And we won’t make any assumptions: we promise to explain briefly what’s happening and invite you to join in. You can also sit back and just check things out. You’re safe here.

ALLIANCES

Connect one-on-one and grow deeper in your faith.

Partner in a 1:1 Alliance.

Grow, support, and encourage one another in everyday life. No one is an expert, and we all have something to learn from each other and alongside one another. Alliances are groups of 2 or 3 people growing deeper together.

Beginner's Guide

Step 1: Find a focus

Following Jesus is a life-long process of discovering, enjoying, and sharing the life Jesus offers. Different phases of life often require different points of focus. To help track your growth and discover an area you could focus on in this phase we offer this simple Self-Reflection.

Step 2: Find An ALLY

Invite one friend, coworker, neighbor, family member, etc. to join you in growing in this particular focus. If you need or want, email us and we can help match you with an ally.

Step 3: Find a resource together

Alliances utilize a variety of resources to help facilitate relationships and growth. Choose a resource from our recommendations or feel free to use something you find.

Step 4: Decide on a rhythm

Crosscreek provides a safe space to ask questions and grow in your faith. A place where you can truly “belong before you believe.” We have enjoyed the supportive community both at the bi-monthly gatherings and in our weekly connect group. Our kids have also formed lasting friendships and look forward each time to seeing them! Our family is very grateful to Crosscreek and the inclusive and safe environment it has created for both believers and questioning believers alike!

Julie

From day one, we felt welcomed. This church is full of people who love Jesus and the community, with a heart for service. During COVID, the online content has been engaging and I love the monthly suggestions for how we can support our local area and show Salem we are FOR them, and God is FOR them.

Donna

I’ve been to so many churches in my life. I’ve never felt so completely comfortable as I do with Crosscreek people! Whether in person or virtually, these amazing Jesus-followers show everyone that loving Christ and others is our #1 job, that we may not get it right all the time, but we still get to try again. You won’t get the feeling of being judged for how you live your life! They will show you how you may WANT to live your life closer to Jesus.

Kristin

I love this church. The people here are so welcoming. I don’t think I have ever found a more caring and non-judgmental church than Crosscreek.
