First Things First is Cross Church’s summer theme. But what does this mean for your life and the life of our church? How does this theme play-out before us? First Things First is a three-part call to action and faithfulness:
- Put Jesus first in your life this summer, which is a call to experience personal fellowship with God daily. Never stop growing in your Bible knowledge and prayer time with the Lord. Your church covets your prayers for our ministry team, our fellowship, and our church’s global Gospel impact.
- Put Jesus first each Sunday this summer, which is a call to experience God together through His Church weekly. Your involvement in Sunday morning worship is critical to your spiritual growth, and our ministry team have developed summer programming⎯detailed below⎯ to glorify our great God and declare his name locally and globally.
- Put Jesus first financially this summer, which is a call to experience obedience to God by giving to your church weekly⎯at least the first tenth of all God has given to you, regardless of where you are located each Sunday. We are believing God will do a mighty working within the Cross Church family this summer, learn more here.
Together as a faith family, lets commit to putting First Things First daily this summer.

Beach Camp – 8th-12th grade
This camp experience for your 8-12th grader is unlike any other! We will travel to Destin, Florida and stay in condos at the SeaScape Resort where students will have supervised beach time daily as well as grade level competitions. Each morning and evening students will participate in a exciting worship service where they will be challenged like never before from the word of God. This camp is a great opportunity for your student to get away and be outside of their normal routine so that they can be challenged by and focus on their relationship with Jesus. (All meals are covered in the cost of camp except for 2 meals on the way to Destin and 2 meals on the way back home).
