You Are Welcome at Cross Creek Church.
Join us this Sunday at 11:00 AM
No matter where you’ve been life, you are welcome at Cross Creek Church. We are a church of imperfect people serving a perfect Savior.
We are located at 4105 Goodman Rd. You will find our church just a few miles south of Memphis in the growing town of Olive Branch, Mississippi.
What To Expect
At Cross Creek we love Jesus and are striving to grow more like Him every day.
Every Sunday we sing a mix of old and new songs and hear a message from God’s Word we can apply to our daily lives.
We dress casually so feel free to come as you are. Our services last about an hour and we promise not to call you out or embarrass you.
Although we do ask our regular attenders to give to support our mission, we don’t expect guests to give. We just want you to enjoy the service and see if you and your family would like to join our family.
We are family and we’ll do our best to make you feel welcome and at home. We can’t wait to meet you!
Your Kids Matter
Safe, Clean & Fun
You can rest assured all of our kids volunteers have submitted to a background check and have been trained in the event of an emergency,
We clean the rooms and sanatize toys regularly to reduce germs and prevent your littles ones from getting sick.
Your child is going to have a lot of fun at Cross Creek. Don’t be surprised if they ask to come back!
Nursery for babies (0-2) is provided during Sunday morning Small Groups and Worship. Come a little early to get your child checked in, meet their caregivers and help your child get settled before going to your class or service.
Kids Small Groups: 9:45am
Each Sunday morning our kids gather in their small group Sunday School class to learn important Bible truths. At Cross Creek, we use the D6 curriculum so kids and adults are learning the same lesson each week.
Children’s Church: 11:00am
Our children’s worship time happens on Sundays at the same time as our Adult Worship Service. Kids enjoy an interactive time of worship through songs, media, games, and lessons from God’s Word that they can connect with. We use the Elements Children’s Church curriculum during this time.
TeamKids is an exciting time of learning God’s Word together through Bible lessons, stories, games, and activities. TeamKids lasts about one hour and is for ages 4 through 5th grade. During the fall, the focus of TeamKids is on learning a Christmas musical to present in December. Each night the students learn a song and have a lesson and activities that go with it.
Students Matter Too!
Wednesday Night Youth Group
Our teens (Grade 6-12) meet together from 6:30-7:30pm every Wednesday. Our gatherings include a variety of activities, games, group prayer, small group discussions, and relevant studies aimed at helping our students live an abundant life in Jesus Christ.
We teach them understand the world through God’s Word and encourage them to develop a biblical worldview so they can deal with the many challenges of life.
Discipleship groups are available for students to join. These groups meet at different points throughout the week. Both guys and girls groups are available.
