The Crossing is located in Columbia, Missouri and our goal is to be a church where we can genuinely encounter God and grow in our relationship with him. We believe that, in doing this, two things happen: (1) God is honored, and (2) our lives become much more joyful and satisfying.
Visiting and attending the worship service is perhaps the best way to start getting an idea of what The Crossing is about. But while the worship service is central to everything we do, being involved in this church means much more than coming, or watching this live stream, on Sunday mornings. So when you’re interested in taking the next step, we’d encourage you to meet the pastors at a Newcomers Lunch or attend our Discovery Class, where you can learn about the biblical convictions that shape the church and additional opportunities to get connected.
The Crossing is located at:
3615 Southland Drive
Columbia, MO 65202
Let’s be honest: Giving doesn’t make any sense. It’s completely unnatural to give away that which promises to bring joy to your life. Our own sinful hearts join in with the wider culture in telling us that money makes us comfortable and secure and ultimately happy. Generosity will never make sense until we realize that money and the things it buys will never satisfy us and that the only source of true and lasting happiness are the promises of the gospel.
The more people believe the gospel—that in Jesus they have been rescued from sin and judgment, completely forgiven, and brought into a relationship with their heavenly Father—the more they experience true joy and satisfaction. One inevitable consequence is that their attitude about their possessions changes. Accumulating more and more for ourselves is less satisfying and we begin to find that Jesus was right when he said that it is more blessed to give than receive. The true and lasting joy that people seek in money actually comes from holding tightly to the promises of the gospel and loosely to our own possessions. So let’s be honest: To the Christian, giving makes complete sense.
