cp cOMMUNITIES

We want to encourage and help you live  your mission to  share the love of Jesus by serving others during this unique crisis in our country and we’ve got a simple plan for that. We're starting online communities of care in our neighborhoods and communities.


#1. Start your own “CP Community” via Facebook groups to help meet needs of those in your neighborhood and network of friends. [Scroll down for directions on how to do this] 

The vision for these communities is a place to share and met immediate and practical needs for one another, kind of like a family working together during the coming weeks as we live through the spread of the virus. These groups will also be a great way to encourage others.


#2.  Invite others to join your community.

Ideally, these people would live in your neighborhood or within a reasonable distance to you. Aim to have anywhere between 10-50 people in your community.


The main CrossPoint Church page will be a resource for people in our church and community to find the CP community group closest to them if they would like to attend. We’ll link your group to our page so people can find you.


#3.  Join a created CP Community near you if you don’t create one.

As CP Communities are created, join one near you. You can view the existing CP Communities by going to our Facebook page and viewing the Groups. 


HOW TO START A CP COMMUNITY

If you have any difficulty creating your community, facebook message CrossPoint for assistance or

email Pastor Matt at matt@cphutch.church.

  • Contact us

    • Email Pastor Matt Troyer your desire to start a CP Community on Facebook (matt@cphutch.church). This will help us organize our efforts across our church family.   
  • Create a facebook group

    • Name it “CP Community – NAME” (Ex: “CP Community – Linden Park Area”)
    • Make it private and visible
    • Add Matt Troyer or Loretta Christensen as an admin so we can link it to the church page so that others can see and join y our group


  • Invite up to 50 people

    • Invite neighbors, co-workers, family, friends at CrossPoint, friends who live reasonably close to you, growth group members, etc.
    • The closer geographically the better


  • Be the community moderator

    • Moderate posts of needs and resources offered
    • Foster interaction (encouragement, prayer, check-ins)
    • Message the church page with unmet needs
