Cross Pointe Community Church is a non-denominational church on a mission to reach those who are unsaved, unchurched and out of church. We purpose to reach those individuals by building relationships with God, family, friends and our world. Those relationships are made right when we know God in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to enter into Heaven.
Our story began in December of 2004, when a small group of believers met at the home of Larry & Rosanne Petton in Springdale, Arkansas and shared their vision for a new non-denominational church with a contemporary-style worship format in the Tontitown area. Tontitown had few churches, but was on the cusp of tremendous growth. Those who were part of that historic meeting were Keith & Missi Truitt, Ken & Twila Durrett, Nathan & Raelene Hudson, Jake Naramore, Don & Susan Dalton and the Pettons. This group, which later became the church’s Advisory Team, had a positive spirit, sincere love for one another, and deep faith in what they believed God was doing. Cross Pointe Community Church was birthed in that meeting with the purpose statement of “Building relationships with God, family, friends and our world.”
In January of 2005, a 10,000 square foot lease building was discovered on Highway 412 in Tontitown. A lease was signed by members of the group and plans were drawn for remodeling the building into a unique worship center with creative rooms for children’s ministry. After 7 months of construction and nearly $200,000 in cost, Cross Pointe held its first public services on Sunday, August 21, 2005, which was attended by over 200 people.
The first year was exciting as the church continued to grow spiritually and numerically. More staff members were added and Life Groups were formed to connect like-minded people together to build relationships. The Cross Pointe family members began finding their places of service and ministry.
In August of 2006, the church took possession of the former Mis Panchos restaurant and remodeled it to serve as a youth/multi-purpose building. Known as The Warehouse, this building was an answer to prayer because of limited space and the need for a youth worship service on Sunday mornings.
The church’s second year was one of continued relationship building as many people came into a personal relationship with God. Life Groups continued to develop and provide a place for those in the church family to get to know one another and begin to grow in their faith. By our second birthday, it was necessary to begin having two worship services each Sunday to accommodate the crowds.
In December 2009, Cross Pointe took possession of the Sioux Transportation offices next door to the Warehouse, which became the “Faith Factory” for elementary children. At the same time, extensive remodeling was done on the main building to install an indoor playground for children and enlarge the foyer and worship center.
Today, over 1,500 people are associated with Cross Pointe as God continues to bless our church as we build relationships with God, family, friends, and our world.
We have Sunday morning services at 9:00 and 10:45am at our campus in Tontitown, Arkansas!
