Our mission and vision are made alive in practical terms through the various ministries within our community; it is our desire that all ministries have a common shared and unified sense of vision and purpose and understand where we as a church are and God desires for us to go.
JC Kids is about helping the youngest members of our community discover who they were meant to be in Jesus. Each week there is a fun and interactive bible lesson that involves crafts and different activities to engage the kids in a fun way. Kids are also introduced to prayer and are encouraged to bring their prayer requests for their friends, families and teachers. Kids keep track of their prayers on the prayer wall so they can see that God is at work in their lives.

Of all the ministries at Joshua Crossing the most unique may be the Thursday night community dinners. Every Thursday evening from 6 until 8 pm we gather together around the dinner table to share life. Most of the time we laugh, some of the time we cry but we always do it together. Community dinners are for everyone; that means you are welcome here regardless if this is your church home or not – At Joshua Crossing we desire to be as authentic a community as we can be and that means sharing life together. If you don’t feel like cooking and you want to be among friends or make some new ones bring your whole family out to Thursday Night Community Dinner.
