Faithful in Service

Reid Olson

4/15/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being more faithful in serving others. Jesus tells us to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him. We like the following part, but find it harder to do the "deny ourselves" part. Sometimes when we give of our time to others and serve them, we reap a reward of God's blessing. We walk with God to learn how to give more service away and honor God by blessing others.

Share Faith Boldly

Reid Olson

4/8/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being bolder in sharing your faith. All of us talk boldly about what we believe strongly, already. But many followers of Jesus don't share their personal faith with others. For some reason we feel inadequate, or incapable, or not compassionate enough. Whatever your reason, it's easier to share your faith than you realize. All we need to do is "meet a need" for someone today. Maybe they sense distance from God and don't need a lecture, rather, they need love from someone who cares for them. My prayer is that you would learn to share your faith more boldly, by meeting someone's need today.

What Did You Expect?

Reid Olson

4/1/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 24:1-10. The women go to the tomb of Jesus to prepare his body with spices, and they find the stone rolled away, the tomb empty and angels approach. The angels said, "Jesus is not here. Why do you look for the living among the dead?" What did you expect to happen? Jesus wasn't expected to die, and then once dead, Jesus wasn't expected to come back to life. How does your life relate to the resurrection of Jesus from the dead? You no longer need to live a "dead" existence. You can have life today, with the same power God gave to raise Jesus from the dead.

"Even if . . . ", Daniel 3

Reid Olson

3/18/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Daniel 3. Hebrews 12:1-3 says to lay aside the things that distract us from God, and run the race marked out for us in faith, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author of our faith, so that we don't grow weary and lose hope. How do we fix our eyes on Jesus? What sort of things take away our sense of hope? The boys in the story of the fiery furnace in Daniel 3 found themselves up against a rock and a fireplace. They chose to follow God, no matter the cost ... "even if". Can you say that in your life? Even if God doesn't save me from this situation, I will still trust him.

A Prophetic Word for Today

Reid Olson

3/4/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 17 prophets from the Old Testament. We are in a series on the Heroes of the Faith in Hebrews 11, and the author of Hebrews names the prophets as heroes of faith. We wanted to cover what the prophetic books were about in relation to today's culture. If you were asked to speak for God as a prophet to your culture, what would you say? Would you have a message of love for today's generation of people? How can you help people grow in their faith with God, today? What message would you give?

Samuel; The Calling to Serve

Reid Olson

2/25/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Samuel 3. Samuel the young boy, is beckoned by the LORD, to hear his voice. The priest, Eli, tells young Samuel to say to the LORD, "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." Can you say that in your own life? Do you listen when the LORD speaks to you? How do you show character and faith in God when God wants to say something to you? God is loving, gracious and kind. He wants to speak with you and wants you to listen. Are you listening?

David; The Flaws of a King

Reid Olson

2/18/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 2 Samuel 11. King David had reigned over Israel for some 20 years now, and in his complacency, became a little bored. He neglected his kingly duties, didn't go out to war, roamed his palace at night, and took advantage of his power. Greek Military General, Pittacus, said, "The measure of a person is what they do with their power." How do you use your power and influence over others? Are you abusive, #metoo, or are you empowering? Do you walk blindly in your sin, or when others hold you accountable, do you repent of your sin and confess your wrong to God? God is waiting to give you another chance, so we need to walk toward God, repent of our sin, and come freely to victory over darkness.

David; A Shepherd's Victory

Reid Olson

2/11/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Samuel 17. David vs. Goliath is one of the most well-known stories in the Old Testament of the Bible. Some know it as the little shepherd boy who defeats the 9 foot giant. Some know it as the giant who fell to the power of God. Some know it as people of Israel getting lucky that brave David fought for them. You may have grown up knowing this story as the underdog of a lifetime defeating the enemies of God. What we learn is that our metaphorical "giants" have been barking the same defiant demoralizing words at us our entire lives. It's time we challenge our giants to a fight, where we use the power of God to sling a stone, and cut off the head, thus silencing the voice of our giants. You may have something in your life that terrifies you, that reminds you daily that you're not good enough for God. It's time you stand up, believe the words of God, pick up your weapons and march down to the battle. Stop standing on the side lines and listening to the lies of the enemy. Besides, his words are a boring representation of non-creative assault. Aren't you sick and tired of satan trying to defeat you with his mocking voice? Say something, and do something that will let the power of God work through your life. Defeat your giants, with the word of God, with the love of neighbor and with the accountability of faith friends in your life. I'm sick of satan winning all the battles. Aren't you sick of it, yet?

Jephthah; Don't Make Deals With God

Reid Olson

2/4/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Judges 11. Jephthah was given the power of the Holy Spirit by God, to win a battle against the Ammonites. After receiving the power of God, he turns and makes a deal with God, that whatever comes out the door when he returns from battle, he will give to God as a burnt offering. This is the worst kind of deal to make with God. Who should come out of his front door, but his daughter. God isn't looking for you to make deals, God is looking for your faithful obedience. God wants you to remain faithful to Him, He doesn't want to bargain for our stuff.

Samson; Where Does Your Strength Reside?

Reid Olson

1/28/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Judges 13-16. Samson was a wild man, who was given the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish various tasks for the Lord over the people of Israel, but he certainly wasn't a man to emulate your life after. He struggled with issues many of us struggle with today; ego, lust, power, and difficulty with intimate relationships, among other things. We look at the life of Samson so that we can understand where our strength resides. I wonder if you are self aware enough to know what could bring you down? What are the issues in your life that draw you away from God, rather than draw you towards God? Can you determine the strength of God in your life, or do you succumb to weaknesses all the time? Find out with us, where your strength can reside, with God.

Barak; Are You Being Useful For God?

Reid Olson

1/21/18

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Judges 4 & 5. Barak was serving as General for Israel's Army, under the Judge Deborah. He was given a command, through Deborah, by the Lord, and he refused to obey orders unless his conditions were met. When we rebuff against the Lord's commands, we are not honoring the Lord. How does your life reflect obedience to God? Are you one to question God's authority in your life, and therefore not live a life of obedience? How can you learn to serve God better by making your life available to God's service?

Missionary Life of Hudson Taylor

Bryan Thompson

1/7/18

Description:Missionary, and Perspectives teacher with Overseas Mission Fellowship; Bryan Thompson, teaches on the life of Hudson Taylor as missionary and pioneer of missional living in our time.

Finishing Begins By Starting

Reid Olson

12/31/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Exodus 3-4. When we think of New Year's Resolutions, we often let fear assist us with failing. We don't want to set goals, or accomplish success because we let fear capture our hearts. Moses knew a little something about this too. When God gave him a goal to accomplish, Moses tried talking his way out of it, many times. Have you ever been there? God reminds us to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can in order to walk by faith in 2018. Join us this week in discovering God's bigger purposes for our lives, and you'll accomplish more as you walk by faith.

Manger Interrupted Plans

Reid Olson

12/24/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 1. Mary and Joseph's plans were interrupted for God's greater invitation into the Messiah's life. God has a way of interrupting our plans with His purposes. Don't be alarmed if God wants to get your attention, so that His greater purposes may prevail. God sees the bigger picture and wants your participation into His plans. Won't you put your plans on hold for God to work out His purposes in your life? Please do. You won't be disappointed.

Missionary God; The Battle of Kingdoms

Reid Olson

12/17/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 2. Like King Herod, at the birth of Jesus, we resist the Kingdom of God breaking into our world. Sometimes people forget that God doesn't come into our world like a tyrant and terrorist, but rather God comes near as a offering of peace, like a little child. God's Kingdom is breaking into this dark world to take over your kingdom of selfishness and pride. Is it possible that we act like King Herod in our resistance to God's Kingdom also? We need to be like the wisemen who came seeking proximity to Jesus, bringing gifts of worship to the Savior. We all, like King Herod, have gone astray, but God has come for us like only the Missionary God can.

God is on Mission;

Alisha Allen Testimony

12/10/17

Description:Alisha Allen, of Crossroads Church of Greeley, teaches on her experience with the World Race Mission. She went to 11 countries in 11 months to minister to people. Her stories are compelling, her passion is clear and her mission is to serve. Engage with us in hearing how our mission includes every day living, wherever you find yourself, around the world.

God Is On Mission;

Sierra Dudgeon Testimony

12/3/17

Description:Sierra Dudgeon, of Crossroads Church of Greeley, shares with us about her 11 month mission, visiting 13 countries with World Race. She saw the mission of God, working around the world. Little did she know that God would be building her up personally, as much as building up His Kingdom around her and through her. Join us as we hear how the work of God is seen in the world.

God Includes Outsiders; Rahab

Reid Olson

11/26/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Joshua 2. The faith story of Rahab, the "former" prostitute is compelling to say the least. Rahab was known for an interesting moral occupation. We might even say immoral. But when she gave her life in faith to those who could save her, we see that her history was changed. In Matthew 1, when the genealogy of Jesus is listed, we see something missing. When you come to faith in God, your story can change also. What is your faith story?

"Faith Conquers Doubt" - Joshua

Reid Olson

11/19/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Joshua 6. The armies of Israel faced a foe like never before, in a way they've never known before. God told them to march around the city 13 times, without talking, and then on the final go 'round, they would shout and the walls would collapse around them. The battle of Jericho goes down in history as one of the most unique battles of Israel, because, once again, they needed to merely obey God the Father, and God would take care of the rest. How about Jericho's in your life? Are you battling something you have no control over? Is there a fight, that you can't win? With God, all things are possible, and God wants you to have the victory, today. What is your Jericho, and how are you letting God win the victory?

"Faith Doesn't Complain" - Moses, part 2

Reid Olson

11/12/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the people of Israel, back in the biblical books of Exodus and Numbers. They were marching through the Sinai desert wilderness for 40 years, and they weren't too happy about it. All through their experience, they cried out in grumbling and complaining before Moses, and before the Lord. We go through only 10 of their major complaints. Does your life reflect more gratitude, or more complaining? As you hear the news each day, do you find yourself grumbling through life? Join us as we discover ways that God sends us the remedy to our complaining life-style.

"Faith Prepares A Way" - Moses, part 1

Reid Olson

11/5/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Exodus 3. Moses encounters God in the burning bush, but the bush is not consumed. God speaks to Moses about a tremendously ridiculous plan to free the 2 million Hebrews from the hand of Pharaoh, through Moses. Moses isn't having it. He gives God four excuses, four questions about the plan, to persuade God from moving forward. God isn't having it, either. Do you struggle with your own identity issues, or validation issues, or legitimacy issues, or even trying to prove God to others? Join us as we talk about the struggling faith of young Moses.

"Faith Sees A Future" - Joseph

Reid Olson

10/29/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the life of Joseph. The book of Genesis walks through the life of Joseph. He dreams big dreams and his brothers threw him in a pit & then sold him as a slave. He gets falsely accused and thrown in prison. He interprets dreams and becomes second in command in all of Egypt. What can we learn from the life of Joseph, who remained faithful through it all? Can we be as faithful to God, even when our lives aren't as difficult?

"Faith Leaves A Legacy" - Jacob

Reid Olson

10/22/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 32. Jacob led a life of deception, lies, trickery and dishonesty, yet God wanted to use him anyways. God met with Jacob on the shores of Jabbok river, and got Jacob's attention in a very real way. Dislocation of the hip is one of the most painful experiences in my life personally, and would be in your life too. Jacob needed a wake up call to become humbled in the service to the Lord. Join us as we learn about humility.

"Faith Requires Sacrifice" - Abraham

Reid Olson

10/1/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 12. Faith requires sacrifice and obedience. When is the last time the Lord called you to sacrifice something for Him? What is it like to give up something of the flesh, in order to honor the God of faith? We come across so many ways to act out of our flesh, rather than to put aside our desires for the glory of God. Join us as we follow Abraham through his sacrifices in life.

Faith That Saves You; Noah

Reid Olson

9/24/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Hebrews 11. The life of Noah is not necessarily one to emulate. He lived during a very awful period in time. Can you imagine everyone living to only please themselves? Can you imagine a time of extreme violence and depravity that would cause God to have a grieving heart? We live in a difficult time today too, so what is the solution? Do we need to all go out and work for our salvation? NO, not a chance. Jesus did the work for us. Jesus died so we could be saved. We need to obey the call of God the Father, and work a little bit with our faith, so that God's blessing on his people might come through our obedience. Join us as we continue to look at characters of the faith in Hebrews 11.

Faith That Walks With God; Enoch

Reid Olson

9/17/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Enoch. Genesis 5 gives a genealogy of those who walked with God. Hebrews 11 tells us that Enoch walked with God and was "no more". He never died. He was just taken to be with God. What kind of legacy are you leaving behind when you are "no more"? When we walk with God in faith, we don't have to work to please God, we simply depend on His guidance to lead us. Join us as we talk about the faith of those who came before us through Hebrews 11.

Sacrificial Faith As Offering; Cain & Abel

Reid Olson

9/10/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 4. Cain kills his brother Abel at the beginning of time. Since sin crept into the garden with Adam & Eve, it continues to creep through the lives of everyone. Sin was evident in the first murder in history also. Cain's offering wasn't acceptable to God for some reason, but his brother's was acceptable. What do you do when you get jealous? How do you respond with you don't feel favored? Do you lash out and kill others around you, even with a look? We can all act like one of these two brothers. Hebrews 11 leads us to believe that faith is the evidence of things hoped for and assurance of things unseen. How do you grow your faith when you're challenged by competition? In our world of competition and jealousy, God gives us a third way of faith. Join us in Hebrews 11 as we grow in faith.

Annual Church Check-Up

Reid Olson

9/3/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 2:42-47. When was the last time you had your physical check up? How did it go? When was the last time you had your spiritual church check-up? How did you rate? We take a spiritual survey annually to determine how we're growing in evangelism, discipleship, worship, fellowship & service to others. How would you rate on these 5 categories in the church body? Join us as we find out together, how we're doing.

Your Story Matters To God

Reid Olson

8/27/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 8:1-15; the parable of the farmer sowing seeds. You have a story to tell about how God is working in your life, and as you tell your story, you share the love of God with others. God has you in the right place, at this right time, for God's kingdom purposes. Don't squander this life for yourself, rather, make your life accessible to God's use. How well do you share your faith with others?

Working With God, Instead of For God

Reid Olson

8/20/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 9:1-8. The story of the man healed from paralysis is fascinating. We sometimes mistake it for a simple story of healing, which isn't ever simple. But this miracle takes a turn and God brings forgiveness along with healing. This is called Shalom in the Bible, God's salvation (Shalom) is more than peace, it is a wholeness of forgiveness, healing and making things right in the world. Jesus uses this moment in this young man's life to point others to God. The friends who brought the young man to Jesus were rewarded for their faith. Those who opposed Jesus were dumb founded by his authority from God the Father. All in all this is a wonderful teaching on working with God, instead of for God. Do you understand the difference? Click the link below, and follow along.

Seeing Through God's Eyes

Reid Olson

8/13/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 9. The healing of the blind man is more than a miracle healing, it is an example of the God of all Creation working to create the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ the Messiah. Jesus is the light of the world, and by healing the man born blind, he is bringing God's light of healing and restoration into our world. Those that opposed this man's healing testimony, his neighbors, the religious leaders, and even his parents, were caught in a vortex of blame and accusations against the healing, rather than seeing God through who Jesus is. Don't become blind in this process of blame, rather become seeing through the miracle of Jesus redemption in the world.

A Faith That Remains Focused

Reid Olson

8/6/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 14. Jesus walking on water is one infamous miracle story. The disciples were in a boat, surrounded by a storm, some 3.5 miles off shore, and Jesus comes walking by. Have you ever felt alone in your faith? Have you ever been so scared of the circumstances around you, that you'd do almost anything to make the storm stop? Have you ever wanted faith like Peter, who stepped out on to the water to walk toward Jesus? When Jesus rebuked Peter for taking his eyes off of Christ, we take that as a chastisement from Jesus. What if that meant that at least Peter had some faith to begin with, and he had room to grow? Join us in this sermon about the miracle of keeping our faith in focus amidst the storms in life.

Your Story; Rescue, Rehab, Release

Reid Olson

7/30/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 4. The woman at the well encountering Jesus is a famous event in the Gospels. Jesus rescues her from broken relationships and from dipping her bucket into a well void of life, and provides her living water with spiritual springs that will never run dry. He takes time to share with her a new identity in worship, and then releases her to share with her town that Messiah has come. The town is receptive and she becomes known as the first missionary to tell others about Jesus. Join us in finding out how to share your story of rescue, rehabilitation and release.

Your Story; God's Rescue Mission

Reid Olson

7/9/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 15. Jesus is accused of hanging out with the wrong type of people, doing the wrong type is things. He responds with a tale of 3 stories, where he share the love of God expressed in the seeking and saving of the lost items. Join us as we explore the love of God for the lost. Discover where you are lost without God, and how you can be found in God.

Leaders Are Learners

Reid Olson

7/2/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. People with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, "How do you know if the Bible is true?" "Why would you put your faith into some God you can't see?" Billy Graham said, "You can't see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true." People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.

Writing as Spiritual Discipline

Reid Olson

6/25/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on writing as spiritual practice of faith. Where do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don't neglect writing.

Being Quiet Enough To Listen

Reid Olson

6/18/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on silence as a spiritual discipline. How often do you take the time to be quiet and listen to the speaking of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we can get away from others long enough to be quiet for a moment. We need to learn to be still before the Lord. To be quiet and practice solitude is something that builds our faith, grows our confidence in the Lord, gives us strength to carry on through the hard times, and lets us rest in the trust that God will provide. Where are you in your practice of silence and solitude?

Fasting from Food, on Purpose

Reid Olson

6/11/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6:16-18. What is it like to fast from food for a meal, for a few meals, for a few days? What's the purpose of fasting? What are people supposed to accomplish through this ancient practice of spiritual growth? Some people skip a meal in the week because they are too busy to eat. Some skip a meal because they're trying to lose weight. Some skip meals because of lack of income, or lack of convenience, but skipping a meal on purpose for the sake of godliness is an entirely different reason. Join us this week as we look at the benefits of fasting in order to grow your faith.

Financial Stewardship

Reid Olson

6/4/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Philippians 4:18-19. What does it mean for our lives in faith when we give financially to the work of the Lord? Do you have a spiritual practice of giving a portion of your finances to the local church? Do you give with joy, or reluctantly? Do you give on a regular basis, or only when you can afford to give? What would it look like for you to begin practicing financial giving on a regular schedule and with an increasing amount each year? Do you know that the Lord will bless you when you give as a spiritual discipline? It's true.

"How May I Serve You"?

Reid Olson

5/28/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Philippians 2 where Jesus is the humble servant. Paul teaches the young church at Philippi that the way to serving is through humility. Join us as we learn what it means to serve the community.

Sharing Faith w/o Being a Jerk

Reid Olson

5/21/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 10. Jesus sends out the 72 followers to go and prepare the cities for his entrance, ahead of him. He tells them to go in peace and eat whatever is set before them. I like this kind of evangelism. Jesus isn't mean about sharing the Kingdom of God, he sends it out with kindness and peace. How do you share your faith in Jesus? Are you a jerk about it? Do you have to convert people to the faith and make it all about "you", or can you let the Spirit of God do the work? Listen with us at Crossroads as we practice sharing faith as a spiritual discipline.

Worship as Antidote to Worry

Reid Olson

5/14/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6. Jesus teaches us to replace worry with worship. Seek first, the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you. How do you practice worship? What are your best practices when it comes to overcoming the mess of this world? On this Mother's Day we come to celebrate the gift of Worship and focus on worship in Spirit and in Truth.

Following Jesus; Learning To Pray

Reid Olson

5/7/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to pray like Jesus. We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.

Following Jesus; Bible Intake

Reid Olson

4/30/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Bible Intake as a Spiritual Practice. What are your spiritual practices that keep you grounded with the Lord Jesus? Do you have a regular reading routine with the Bible? Do you have a Bible reading app? When is your favorite time of day to spend time in God's Word? Whenever it may be, be sure to continue. Some say, "I don't know why God feels so far away from me." and my answer is, "How much time do you spend reading the bible?"

Baptism Sunday, 2017

Reid Olson

4/23/17

Description:Crossroads Church of Greeley celebrates believer baptism with the congregation. We come to the waters with Jesus and submit ourselves to the work God has done, and continues to do, in our lives. These 6 people have given their lives to Jesus and commit their lives to walking in faith with God and with the church.

Follow Jesus; One Step At A Time

Reid Olson

4/23/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on spiritual disciplines. We need something to calibrate our compass of faith, once in a while. We need to ground ourselves in the ways of Jesus so that we get to know Him and become more like Him in our daily walk with God. It's one thing to "know God", but another thing entirely to practice the steps of faith that draw us closer in relationship with Jesus. We overview the series in this talk about following Jesus; one step at a time.

Being Made Right With God (John 20)

Reid Olson

4/16/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being made right with God. There are so many religions and different views of faith in the world today. How do we know which one is the one to lead us to God? How does one know if a religion is teaching the right doctrine in order to know God personally? We explain this to you in our Easter 2017 sermon, Being Made Right With God. You will enjoy testimony from Michelle Allen also, as she describes her living faith in God. If the resurrection is true, then Christian faith is true.

Palm Sunday; "How Do We Worship?"

Reid Olson

4/9/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 19. Jesus had just come from Zacchaeus's house where Zach is transformed by the loving grace of Jesus. Then as Jesus walks toward Jerusalem, his disciples secure a donkey for the triumphal entry. They lay down palm branches and their coats as Jesus enters into the city. They praise Jesus and give him their worship. Some reject him and tell Jesus to stop this blasphemy. What would you do? Where is your allegiance to Jesus? Some rejoice over the God of the Universe sending His very Son for our salvation. Some don't understand at all, and some completely reject the work of God through Jesus. Where do you stand on this issue?

Baby Dedication

Reid Olson

4/2/17

Description:Crossroads Church of Greeley experienced a wonderful baby dedication. April 2, 2017, Nate & Holli Pletcher bring their daughter, Sophie Grace Pletcher to be dedicated to the Lord and with His Church.

The Right To Be Heard (Acts 28)

Reid Olson

4/2/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 28. Paul the Apostle, is now on the island of Malta where a snake wraps around his hand. He is not overcome by the snake bite, just like we are not overcome by the serpent's sting of death. Satan has no power over the believer in Jesus Christ. Paul moves to healing everyone on the island, just like the beginning of the book of Acts where the Spirit of God is active in healing his people. Then Paul spends 2 more years waiting trial before Caesar in Rome. He speaks to all who would listen. How do you share your faith with others? Do you have the right to be heard in their lives?
