From Here to Eternity

We all know that the Bible teaches that everyone will die. But what does it teach about life after death? What about Heaven and Hell? In this series, Pastor Merritt explores what God's Word teaches about what happens from the moment time stops for us on earth to the moment of Jesus' return. 


Shepherd, poet, warrior, king. In the Old Testament there are few names that resonate as loudly as David. Called "a man after God's own heart", he became the leader of Israel, and a part of the earthly lineage of Jesus Christ. Yet he also committed great sin. In the life story of David we can learn about about the character of God as He relates to one of His most prominent characters in all the Bible. 

Just the Three of Us

A successful marriage is not between two people, but three. Christ is the center of a healthy marriage, and as husband and wife grow closer to Jesus, they also grow closer to each other. Join Pastor Merritt for this teaching series on the foundations of successful biblical marriage. In an age where so many marriages are ending, journey with us through the Bible to find healthy new beginnings for marriages that will stand the test of time.


You know the central moment of the story: a man swallowed by a fish, and lives to tell the tale. But you may not know the rest of the story: a mission from God, running in disobedience, an extraordinary event that leads to obedience... or does it? Join us this July as we learn from the story of Jonah.

Music to My Ears

The Psalms are the songs of the Bible. Their poetic lyrics help us understand more about Who God is, and how we can relate to Him. Join us this summer as Pastor Merritt unpacks four Psalms and shares how we can have a closer, more meaningful relationship with God through His Word. "Music to My Ears" is our June 2018 teaching series at all Cross Pointe campuses.

Right Turn

It only takes one wrong decision to be off track in life. But a right turn at the right time can change everything. Join us for this three-part teaching series that will unpack what the Bible says about making the right turn in life, in death, and in life after death. These sermons will help you navigate the most important decisions in life, to keep you on the right track for this year, and beyond.

The X Factor

What will make the difference for those who live on our street, or go to our school, or shop at the same stores, or work in our offices, but who do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior? What will be the factor that will enable someone to boldly step out and shares Christ? With 90% of the people living around our church living far from God, who will be the one that will make the difference?

Pastor Merritt invites you to join him as we explore The X Factor. The Bible tells us that the early church multiplied as ordinary people met Jesus, and shared their stories with their family, their friends, and beyond. Cross Pointe is a church that believes in developing Christ-followers who pray for and pursue the lost. And we want to reproduce ourselves in others so that they can reach even more people for Jesus. Do you have The X Factor?


Christmas has come and gone and left you... well, it left you. And now you're drained. Running on empty. Is there a way to refuel for the new year? Some way to get your spiritual energy back to take on all that God has for you in the coming months? Join Pastor Merritt for this practical series that shares four powerful ways you can find spiritual energy for the new year. Fuel up with us, and be ready for an amazing year in Christ!

First Name Basis

How well do you know the Jesus of Christmas?

Isaiah 9:6-7 gives us one of the most amazing descriptions of Who Jesus is in all of Scripture. We serve a God who wants to be on a first-name basis with us. By giving us these “first names” in Isaiah, God invites us to know Jesus one-on-one. This “first name basis” relationship is the amazing and incredible gift we celebrate at Christmas.


Jesus was perfectly balanced. He was full of grace and truth.  Now when you are full of Jesus you will be full of grace and truth. When a church is full of Jesus, it will be full of grace and truth. For Jesus, it just came naturally.  He didn’t lean one way or the other. He was perfectly balanced. 


Psalms are the songs of the Bible. They teach us about the nature and character of God, and how He gives answers throughou the challenges of life. In this teaching series, Pastor Merritt examines a "playlist" of four psalms, each with a specific message for our lives today.

Elephant in the Room

There are some topics you never discuss in church. And especially preach a sermon on them. The spring, join us as Pastor Merritt takes four important items from our culture that we typically sweep under the rug, and brings them under the spotlight of God's Word. These are the elephants in the room... we're confronted with these every day but we simply don't talk about them. Until now!

The Bucket List

Everyone has a list of things you want to do in life. Big things. Risky things. Things you want to do before you die. Before you "kick the bucket". There's a phrase we use to describe these things--a "bucket list". Maybe you've never written it down, but you've thought about it, and you probably have a few items on it.

There's an ultimate bucket list. One made for us by the One Person who had the most famous death in all of history... Jesus Christ. While Jesus hung on the cross He said seven things. Seven simple yet profound statements that give us a powerful spiritual bucket list to follow. Seven things to do before we die. Seven things to get right. And if we do them now, they'll not only get us ready to meet Jesus in heaven one day, they will positively impact how we live today and for the rest of our lives.
