Good News Now

New Series Starting September 13, 2020

In our disrupted world, and divided society, people are hurting, outraged, and simply exhausted like never before.  Who couldn’t use some good news? Or even better: a mulligan on 2020. But while this unwanted reality appears to have no end in sight, Jesus is inviting us to discover the good news of the kingdom of God.  It’s good, because we are invited to experience life with God.  It’s news, because this life in the kingdom is available to us.  So no matter what your now is—anxiety, depression, anger, fear, whatever—there is good news.


Join us as we study Jesus’ famous teaching—the Beatitudes from Matthew 5—in our fall series, Good News Now



Let’s Go!
Like the team taking the field.
Like kids on the beach running towards water.
Like the entrepreneur launching a new venture.
Like the woman stepping out in faith.

God called us to go.
To go and make disciples. 

To go together on mission. 

To go and change the word.

Join us as we discover how God is calling us to go.
Let’s go, church!



As we look back at the course of our lives we notice that, sometimes, the moments that were hardest are the same moments where we grew the most. What if we knew we were going through one of those moments and we maximized it? What could God do in us and through us?


Ephesians is a book where Paul, the author, is guiding a church through one of those exact moments. He believes and calls them to resilient lives, and if they do God will send renewal and revival in their hearts, homes and neighborhoods. This book has as the turning point a phrase where Paul challenges the church in Ephesus, and us today to walk worthy of the calling God has for us, even in uncertain times. 


Join us as we work our way through the book of Ephesians and if you do we believe God will bless and challenge you towards renewal and revival.


The Transformation Power of Gratitude

We often believe that when we have more, are more joyful, live life with more purpose we will become more grateful, but in reality when we practice gratitude Jesus transforms us into a joyful, purpose-filled person.


"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18⁠


A Conversation with the Boston Bruins on Life, Hockey, and Following Jesus

"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect." - 1 Corinthians 15:10

Current NHL Boston Bruins Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo, Chris Wagner, David Backes, and Adam McQuaid join Pastor Dave Ripper* to talk about why Jesus is worth following and how our ultimate identity can only be found in Him.

Lead Pastor Dave Ripper is the Bruins' chaplain, having co-founded the Bruins' chapel program in 2016.



To The Cross

Jesus famously said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23) 


What does it mean to take up your cross daily?  


This Lent we’ll explore this essential aspect of practicing the way of Jesus as we follow him on his journey To The Cross through the Gospel of Mark.  We invite you to join us each week—leading up to Easter—as we endeavor to be with Jesus, so that we might live and become more like him.


State of the Church

How do you discern God’s will for your life? In this message, Pastor Dave Ripper shares how transformation is the prerequisite to discernment. Not only so, but as we have been discerning God’s will for our church, we are discovering that He is leading us to be a community of transformation. How might God be inviting you to change, so that you may bring change to the world around you?


Prayer Life

Prayer is for life. Life is for prayer. In this new series we invite you to take a fresh look at prayer, and at your life. Prayer is not simply about saying things to God. Rather, prayer is a life that is directed towards God. Because all of us can direct our attention more and more to God, all of us can grow as people of prayer. Yes, even you!


What A Beautiful Name

Have you ever experienced the power in the name of Jesus? This Advent, we are exploring the five names the prophet Isaiah provides us for who the coming Messiah will be: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, Immanuel. Each of these names offers us hope for where we hurt most. Each of these names reveals more of who Jesus is and how we can relate to him. Each of these names assures us that our God is a God we can call upon and count on. We invite you to discover the beauty and the power in the name that is above every name this month.


Giving > Getting

Jesus once said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”  When Jesus said this, he wasn’t constructing a hypothesis to be tested, he was simply stating what is true of reality.  The degree to which we cultivate generous spirits is the degree to which we will be able to live in rhythm with how God fashioned the world.  As we live in the rhythm of God, we will experience greater freedom, and joy, and peace than ever before.  Join us this month as we learn to practice the way of Jesus by becoming more generous people.  


Who Do You Say I Am?

This question Jesus poses to his disciples is the same question he asks each of us.  It is arguably the single most significant question any of us may ever answer.  It not only impacts our eternal future, but how we live every moment of every day.  We invite you to join us at Crossway this fall as we explore who Jesus is as we study the Gospel of Mark together.  Come and discover the Jesus you may never have known before.


Faith & Work

What you do Monday through Saturday—and not just Sunday—matters immensely to God.  Join us this week as we discover how our Sunday faith connects to our Monday work.



The book of Jonah is one of the Bible's most well-known, yet most misunderstood stories. What's the bigger message behind a man being swallowed by a whale? In this four week series, we'll discover - like Jonah does - some of the uncomfortable truths about ourselves that we'd rather ignore. Yet we'll also learn to trust God even when his commands don't seem to make any sense. Join us as we follow Jonah's journey into deep, deep mercy of God.



In our superficial world, how can we be a church deep in faith? Our sermon series, "Deepen" explores, not only what it looks like for us to have deeper faith individually, but what it looks like to be a church that has a deeper presence in our shallow world. Each message examines one of six ways the Christian church has lived  out the mission of God, helping people experience the life and love of Christ in a new, life-giving way.  


Practicing The Way Of Jesus

What does it really mean to “follow” Jesus? To really be with him, become like him and do what he did? Is it even possible in today’s world to live life in community around the teachings of Jesus? How do we move our faith from a thought to a lifestyle?  This series examines how Practicing the Way of Jesus transforms us and brings us true freedom and peace. 


On The Road

Are we numb? As a society, are we transfixed by phones, tablets and computer screens? As Christians, are we insensitive to the amazing things of God all around us? And, as a result, are we missing our true calling as followers of Jesus?


We’re taking some time to explore with fresh eyes what Jesus saw, experienced and taught On The Road through the Gospel of Luke. He “sets His face to go to Jerusalem” (Luke 9:51) on what will be his final journey in that city. He will meet opposition, betrayal, trial, death and, ultimately, resurrection. As we travel On The Road with Him toward Easter, we will rediscover Jesus and ourselves in a fuller, truer and richer way.  Don’t miss the journey!


God's Heart

There are many issues dividing people in our nation today, such as race and immigration. It is easy for us to jump on the bandwagon of our preferred political party. But as followers of Jesus, this is not where we should begin. God wants us to begin with His  Word, and His heart for all people. This does not mean we will agree on the solutions to the challenges these issues present. But no matter where we land, we are to reflect God’s heart for every person.


Amazing Grace

Join us as we look this month at God's Amazing Grace. His scandalous, extravagant grace

is for all of us, irreligious and religious. As we begin to embrace the fullness of His grace,  it will

change us forever.


Christmas at Crossway

In this series, we will journey together through Scripture in anticipation of the savior to come. Together, we will look at passages of Scripture from both the Old and New Testament in order to paint a broad picture of the promises God has made and kept to the world, to Israel, and to us   


Together On Mission



Join us as we take a deep dive into the book of John, journeying through verse by verse. We're taking a look at the life and teachings of Jesus.
