How to Connect

We want to know you!

Our goal is to welcome you into the CrossWinds family and introduce you to people who want to help you get connected. Why? Because we love Jesus!

Helpful Information – We would love to share a small amount of information with you about who we are and how you can plug in at CrossWinds. This Information Packet is available at our Welcome Desk.

Guest Card – Please fill out the Guest Card and return it to the Welcome Desk. In appreciation, CrossWinds Church will make a $1 donation to the Cherish Center, a local ministry reaching out to people in Spirit Lake area.

Coffee – We’d love to share a cup of coffee with you. So stop in the Nexus area for a cup of coffee and some great conversation. – One great way to learn about CrossWinds is to go to and explore who we are. You will quickly get a flavor of how we live out our values through ministry.
