Crosspoint Church in Pleasanton recently added more space to their church facility that will be used as an educational center, as well as, offices. Clyde Butter, Pastor of Crosspoint, said this is one of many plans in their continued growth.
“Our whole purpose statement is we want to live our lives with purpose. We want to promote descipleship, outreach and purpose. Adding this extra space is just one of many ways we’re trying to live up to our purpose. It was something we needed here and we’re glad this was able to be possible,” said Butter.
The first week of June their new space will come of great use as they will be hosting their annual vacation bible school. The church eventually would like to add a playground area for the children of their ministry.
Among many events held within the church, Butter says they also enjoy working with the community and other area church congregations. Three years ago, with the assistance of Pleasanton First Baptist Church and Cowboy Fellowship, the Upward Basketball League was created. The basketball league has participants from grades first through sixth. The seasons begin in January and end in early March. This past season over 175 children participated in the basketball league.
“We couldn’t do it without the use of the school district’s facilities. We’re so very thankful to Dr. Mann and Coach Wood and the school district for allowing us to use their facilities for games and practice. It’s been a great thing for our youth,” said Butter.
At the end of the basketball season, a spaghetti dinner was held for participants, their parents, and staff with 450 people in attendance from all three participating churches.
Butter is proud to have his family involved with Crosspoint, but also the many families who have joined and are continuing to join. They’ve recently had quite a few young families join their church and they’re very excited about it.
“I would invite the community to come as you are. We’re a welcoming and friendly congregation. We’d like to minister and share the love of Christ to those whom are looking for or don’t have a church home,” said Butter. “I think when youre called to a vision and you see it come to fruition, it motivates you to push forward. Sometimes it’s hard and things happen, but you continue to move on and keep going with that vision,” said Butter.
Crosspoint Fellowship holds worship service every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. For more information, you may visit them at 111 E. Johnson in Pleasanton or visit their website www.cfpleasanton.org.
