Above & Beyond

Our Facility Relocation Project

In Ephesians 3:20, Paul says that God is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think. Since 2016 we have been asking God to do great things above and beyond what we could ever even imagine. We  have been asking every person who is a part of Cross & Crown to pray and ask God to provide us with a new facility that will help us make room for more. In September 2021, God provided a new facility for us  at 4455 Arrowswest Drive just off of Garden of the Gods Road. We are now in the process of remodeling this former call center and warehouse to make it usable for us as a church. Check out the updates and progress below as God continues to answer our prayers and provide above and beyond!
