We started meeting in the Fall of 2008 at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Suffolk. At our Grand Opening service 117 people gathered in a ballroom to have church. Over the next 18 months we saw God bless our church with many new families. We have many great memories at the Hilton. It was our first home, and will always hold a special place in our hearts. However, we soon realized we needed a permanent place to meet. We began praying for God to give us a church home to worship Him.
In the summer 0f 2010 God blessed us with our permanent home. It fell into our laps in a way that only God could design. The building had been a funeral home, but we were knee deep in turning it into a church. By November 1, 2011 we were averaging just over 100 on Sunday mornings. We are located at 2460 Pruden Blvd.
Since we have been at our permanent location we have seen God do some amazing things in our ministry. We have witnessed dozens of salvation decisions, baptisms, spiritual growth among our people, and young people develop into faithful disciples of the Lord to mention a few. In fact, in 2012 God had been blessing so much that we took on a successful effort to expand our auditorium and restroom facilities to accommodate the growth that we had been seeing.
On September 14, 2014 we officially became an organized church and became a self-supporting body of believers. It was such a monumental moment in our history! In just six years of existence, by God’s power and the faithfulness of His people, we were able to accomplish this part of the vision of CrossPointe Church.
