What to expect when visiting CPC in Shawnee Kansas

A VISIT TO CROSS POINTS

Thank you for considering a visit to Cross Points Church. You will find the people here warm and receptive, as well as eager to be an example of Christ to the community around us.

It is never easy to visit a new church for the first time, so take a few moments to read through this page. It will give you a feel for what you can expect during your visit.

BEFORE THE SERVICE

What should you wear? First and foremost, we want you to feel comfortable. You will

find everything from suit and ties to jeans and t-shirts. Come how you feel most comfortable.


INFORMATION DESK

Walking in each door, you will find a greeter who will help point you where you need to go. If you have more questions simply head to

the Information Desk in the front foyer of the church. It’s located in the atrium across from the waterfall.


CHILDREN’S MINISTRY & NURSERY

Our children and nursery ministries are designed for Birth through Grade 6 and run concurrently with the service, so plan to check your children in when you arrive. Each classroom provides an age-appropriate Bible lesson along with fun games and activities that will engage your child’s body, mind and spirit. The safety and security of your child is

a top priority of our team, so in every classroom you will find a tag to fill-out for your child. This tag will serve as both a nametag and a secure check out receipt. Keep this receipt…you will need it when picking up your child after service. We look forward to the opportunity to minister to your entire family!


COFFEE SHOP

The Cross Points Coffee Shop is open every Sunday morning at 8:30 until service begins at 10:00 (also immediately following the service). You can purchase coffee, lattes,

smoothies, pastries and more. It also is an excellent place to sit, relax, enjoy a conversation or jump online with our free Wi-Fi connection.


DURING SERVICE – WORSHIP

At Cross Points Church, we believe worship is an opportunity to directly communicate with God from the heart through song. We have a full band that plays live and upbeat praise music, as well as intimate songs of worship. To help you follow along, we project the song lyrics on the main screen at the front of the auditorium.

We recognize everyone worships in their own unique way. Some will sing, clap and raise their hands. Others will quietly reflect on the words. You’re welcome to praise God however you feel most comfortable.


VISITOR RECEPTION

Every Sunday we offer our visitors the opportunity to meet our lead pastor, David Jones, and a few members of the church. At this reception, you have the opportunity to

learn a little more about Cross Points Church and our beliefs. Please join us during this reception in the Coffee Shop immediately following praise and worship.


OFFERING

The worship of God through tithes and offerings happens in one of 3 ways at Cross Points Church

  • Giving at service, in one of multiple offering boxes found at each door.
  • Sending a check to the church office.
  • Making an online donation.

As a guest, you should not feel any pressure to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees.


THE MESSAGE

In every service you will hear a relevant, straightforward message based in the Bible. Each message is designed to help you

develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.


COMMUNION

We celebrate communion together on designated Sunday mornings (typically the fourth Sunday of each month). We encourage everyone who has made a decision

to follow Jesus Christ to participate in this time of reflection and prayer. The juice and bread we share represent His life, which He laid down for our sins to be forgiven.


AFTER THE SERVICE – VISIT THE COFFEE SHOP

As a guest, you’ll be given a Visitor Card during the Visitor Reception. Please take a moment to fill it out and return during this reception – we would love to know how to serve you better. After service, visit

The Cross Points Coffee Shop to pick up a free drink (use the card given to you at the Visitor Reception). Sermon CD’s and other resources are also available.


PICK UP YOUR CHILDREN

Make sure that you take the security tags matching the nametag your child is wearing. For nursery aged children, you will pick up your child in the same classroom as you dropped them off. Four year olds through

kindergarten can be picked up in the preschool classroom in the hallway leading toward the Maranatha wing. Elementary children can be picked up in the same room you dropped them off.
