What are the beliefs of the Wesleyan Church?

The name of our church often prompts quizzical and puzzled looks. Wesleyan? What’s that? The Wesleyan Church finds its roots in the great English preacher John Wesley and the American movement against slavery in the 1800s. Wesleyans have consistently been known for their warm personal faith in Jesus Christ and their desire to make a difference for Him in the world.

The Wesleyan Church has continued to grow over the years and you can find Wesleyan churches and missions in about 90 nations, including more than 1,700 churches in the United States and Canada.

What are Crosswinds services like?

You can expect a casual but worshipful setting, where the word of God is communicated through a combination of relevant bible teaching, live music, scripture reading, prayer and sacrament. It is our hope that the hour we spend together each week will only be the beginning of your worship experience.

What programs are available for children?

In UPTOWN you will find a place where your children can come and learn about God in a kid-friendly way. Our caring leaders will show children God’s love through their actions and teaching. BABY BOULEVARD is for children 8 weeks – 2 years, and includes dedicated rooms for Nursery, Crawlers, 2 yr olds and nursing moms. PRESCHOOL PLACE is for 3 and 4 year olds.

Do you have Christian counseling available?

What is Celebrate Recovery? Do I need to attend Crosswinds regularly to be part of Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is an international Christ-centered recovery program designed to help people with their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery meets weekly and is open to anyone regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey, or where they attend church regularly. You do not have to be a Crosswinds member to take part in CR. For more information, please visit the Celebrate Recovery page on our website.
