CrossLife is blessed with a group of volunteers that help on Sundays and during the week.  People sign up on a rotating basis.  God shows up in a powerful way as we work together making our church ready for Sunday mornings.  Are you ready to step up and join a Team?   (updated 7/18/2017)

Here are your opportunities:
