Car Giveaway by Patrick Detken

Have you experienced incredible extraordinary generosity? The Crossing Church is celebrating 20 years of God’s extraordinary generosity in our lives. And to celebrate our church birthday we are extending that extraordinary generosity to our community by giving away cars. Yes, because of what God has done in our life we want to share with our community in an extravagant way a basic need, a car. We realize so many people in our community are dealing with tough times and could use some help. We hope in a small way this love gift reminds all of us of God incredible love for us. Our first car giveaway will take place on September 6th and 7th in our weekend services and will continue through out September.

Estancia High School Project Update

The Estancia High Project is progressively moving forward to d-day, September 21st. God is making what seems to be an almost impossible thing to do, possible. He is rocking our world by blessing us with windows of opportunity to be able to bless Estancia High School. For those of you who do not know what we are doing, we as The Crossing Church, are coming together to serve our community in a practical, tangible, and real way. We are working closely with the leadership of Estancia High School to do all we can on one weekend. This includes maintenance, painting and sanding, landscape, and cleaning it up! The plan is for the entire church to help from 9am-12pm on Sunday September 21st and then have a celebration service afterward right there on the school campus. The Crossing always has been, is, and always will be about showing and sharing God's love to our community in real, relevant, and practical ways! You will not want to miss this awesome opportunity for us to bless our community together!

What we are looking for right now are people who want to be Captains in certain areas for the project. We do not have those certain areas narrowed down just yet but we will have those areas down as soon as possible. So if you are interested in being a captain or would like more information you can contact me, Sean at Or you can contact the Captain Coordinator, Ben Coplin at There will be a meeting on Monday the 25th of August from 6:30-7:30 in the Kid Zone building. This meeting will contain general information about the event and meeting up with the Lead team for the Estancia High Project. We will also have sign ups to serve starting August 30th and 31st.This is going to be an amazing opportunity to share our love for Jesus with others in the community!

Glory to God,

Sean Kappauf

The Crossing's 20th Birthday Celebration by Lehua Coley

On September 11, 1988 The Crossing opened its doors for its very first weekend service with a vision to reach people who don't go to church and from that day until now it has relentlessly pursued that vision. This September The Crossing celebrates twenty years of minitstry!

We are the same church today as we were in 1988, and we'll continue to be the same church for the next twenty years.

We'll be celebrating throughout the month of September. But we'll be celebrating Crossing style. For the past twenty years our main goal is reaching "them"--the people who are not a part of "us." And so our birthday is not about us, but its about those who haven't yet walked through our doors. We'll kick off the celebration by giving away 20 cars to low-income families. We're taking $20,000 and turning it into $200,000 to invest in the local community and our entire church is working together to give Estancia High School a makeover.

We invite you to come and celebrate with us and help us transform the community of Costa Mesa, and all of Orange County for Jesus Christ.
