It’s that time of year when hayrides, bonfires, pumpkin patches and the holidays really start to kick off and life gets busy, but we know that the Fall Festival at Crossway is a family tradition for so many of you.
This year, we’re doing even more and your kids won’t be able to stop talking about how much fun they had! For you, you’ll always remember getting your kids into their costumes, walking around to the different Bible trunk or treat skits, and seeing the look of excitement on your their faces when they come off the inflatables.
While we want everyone to have fun, we know that the most important part is sharing Jesus with our kids and families in our community. That's why we want you to take part in inviting at least one family to join you this year. Invite them on social media, give them a call, hand them an invite card or do it all!
We can't wait to see you, your family and your friends on Saturday, October 13 at Crossway. Stop by anytime from 11am - 2pm and make sure you stay a while and enjoy lunch. The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend! We hope to see you there!

Getting to the Heart of Parenting
Parenting in a secular world is not easy. Our society is working to desensitize children younger and younger to the sins of the world. This, in turn, makes our job harder and harder to lead children on a path of righteousness. There are many books and methods for parenting out there, but none better than THE book. The Bible gives us everything we need to get to our children’s hearts, which is what directs and rules their behavior. The goal of this workshop is to help you see misbehavior not as a frustration but as an opportunity to be a part of what God is seeking to do in the heart of your child. This class will be led by Chad & Shelly Wallin and the cost is $5.

Through videos, class discussion, and small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be.

The Eden Diet
The Eden Diet book will help you to identify and beat your emotional eating triggers, mindless eating habits, and sinful urges that lead you to eat for taste when you're not actually hungry.

Women’s Discipleship (Women Only)
This 12-week course, taught by Carla Maclachlan, uses scripture to help develop the lifestyle of each person into a genuine disciple of Jesus.
