God at Work

What a great Sunday! I’m still processing the overwhelming and beautiful truths we dug into today from Hebrews chapter 2. Jesus has defeated the enemy and delivered us from the bondage of fear and death! Let’s walk in that truth this week!

Washington DC

It’s been a while since my last post, but so many beautiful things have happened in that span of time. We had a fantastic family trip to Washington DC where we saw old friends, met new family members, and walked through an incredible amount of history! Among many others, here we’re some of the tour highlights: Historic Williamsburg, Jamestown, the National Mall (and all its monuments), the Museum of the Bible (a must see), and a Washington Nationals game. Being my first visit, I was overwhelmed by the visible hand of divine providence in the creation of our nation. God indeed designed this country to be a beacon of hope and blessing to the world. I pray that we can be faithful to carry on that legacy. By the way, if you haven’t registered to vote in the California June elections, now is a great time! Do it by clicking here.

Coffee for a Cause

Moving right along, there have been some exciting developments at the church. We finished remodeling our North Campus cafe and coffee shop. So many talented people in the church pitched in to make it a beautiful and meaningful fellowship space. We named it, “Coffee for a Cause.” All of the proceeds will go towards helping a kingdom-oriented cause. I’m also glad that I have a new study space… that has windows… and coffee.

The Ascent Worship CD:

Our church worship team is releasing an original worship project called, “The Ascent.” If you’re in the area on Wednesday, May 23, I encourage you to join us for the cd release at our north campus. It starts at 6:30. The album will also be available on all the digital services. These 11 songs have been a labor of love for the Lord and the church, and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I have no doubt God is going to use this project powerfully!

God is moving in mighty ways, and it’s a privilege to be a small part of it. Please continue to pray for our nation and the church that inhabits it; that we might be active, humble servants who make much of Jesus while the opportunity exists.

Until next time, grace and peace to you!

Pastor Josh

Good Friday and Unity

This Good Friday was a victory for the Kingdom of God and the church in Auburn, California. As Christians we often speak about the cross being the unifying factor among believers, but it is infrequent to actually see that truth physically manifested. This is what made Friday night so beautiful!

Crossroads Vision Update

Dear Crossroads family,

Our mission is a simple one: “We are a community of Jesus followers who desire to experience God and carry His living hope into our world..” To practically see this vision come to pass, we will continue to build our ministry upon five foundational pursuits:

Sunday Invitation

Greetings Crossroads family!

This past week, our pastoral leadership team took a couple days away to seek the Lord and discuss the vision and mission of Crossroads Church. We spent time reflecting on the incredible things God has done through our church, and we dreamed big about the things God wants to do in the days to come. For the next two Sundays, I will be sharing a recap of some of the things we’ve seen God accomplish as well as an update on our church’s vision and mission. This coming Sunday, March 18, I will be sharing at North Campus during both services. On Sunday, March 25th, I’ll be at South Campus.

During these Sundays, I will be honing in on what we believe God is asking of us during this next season of ministry in our community and around the world. I want to encourage you to join us and be praying about how God might use you as part of what He is accomplishing through our church. It’s also a great time to invite a friend who might be looking for a church or wants to know what Crossroads is really all about. I am resolved more than ever to see Crossroads Church become all that God has intended in His heart for us to be. There are so many in our community and in this world that need Jesus Christ, and I am confident that the Lord will use us to bring His hope and life into our world. God bless you, and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

By His Grace,
Pastor Josh
