The events that are planned by the Ladies Ministry are important in fulfilling the mission of our church family. The primary focus of our ministry is to equip and motivate the ladies of our congregation to use their gifts, talents, and experiences to fulfill their ministry. Lessons and devotionals encourage service, setting Godly priorities, and sharing the Gospel. The activities we plan strengthen relationships so that service and sharing can happen. Our ladies are involved in seeking and saving the lost through many opportunities Cross Point offers, such as volunteering at the Friendship Center, Ambassadors of Love, HeartFelt mentoring, teaching of classes, World Bible School, and many other ways. Our Ladies Ministry events are geared to encourage women in their daily spiritual walk so that they can grow and mature in their relationship with God and with the body of Christ.

At Cross Point, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world is one of our top priorities. Cross Point supports missionaries across the world, as well as in the States, with financial assistance, prayer, and encouragement. With God's provision, we support mission points in Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, India, Kenya, Mexico, New York, the South Pacific, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. We support members who go on short-term mission trips as well because we believe that sharing the Gospel is not only the church's mission, but also can be an individual's mission, too. Cross Point has an annual Family Mission Trip to Antigua and Barbuda, where the Gospel is shared through Vacation Bible School and a soccer camp. This Family Mission Trip is a good way for families to do mission work together.
