Serving Our Community—Charity Training Session at 10am on Saturdays at Innovative Results
One of Innovative Results top three values is serving our community. We have an amazing opportunity to partner with a church that truly cares for our community. Below are all of the areas this church, The Crossing, reaches out to the local community in Costa Mesa. We are honored to dedicate one hour to our community, not only with an amazing training session, but also to donate all the proceeds from the suggested $10 donation to these amazing community causes.
The Crossing Church is proud to announce the creation of a new venture, The Crossing en Español, as we expand to offer services in Spanish. We believe so much in reaching the un-churched that we remove as many obstacles as possible so that people can hear the message of Jesus. Over the years, the population in Costa Mesa has changed, but the mission and the vision of The Crossing remains the same — we are a church for ALL PEOPLE. We have the opportunity to reach other nations right here in our country and in our city. What a privilege we have. Contact Jorge Moscoso to sign up now and be part of the Core Team as we prepare to launch in October. Join us on the ground floor of this exciting new venture.
UPCOMING SERVICES: As we lead up to our official launch date we are proud to present a select few services along the way. Please join us and be part of this exciting new venture.

GO Ministries at The Crossing Church wants to show and share God’s love to our local schools! The schools play an essential role in the community and in the development of the next generation of leaders. We are focusing our resources of time, people and energy to the schools in our community.
LITERACY: one hour a week to read with a group of 1st, 2nd or 3rd graders.
FACILITIES: help provide a better learning environment at under-resourced schools.
STAFF: help support and encourage teachers and administrators.
PARENTS: help encourage, educate and support parents with various classes and events.
The Crossing is partnering with a local elementary school that has the most challenges in terms of literacy, to help change this negative trend.
If you would like to take the next step and learn how you can get involved in this important local outreach program, please contact Jorge Moscoso today.
The Homeless—LOTS (Life On The Streets)
This is a ministry that helps those experiencing homelessness in our community. Our focus is helping retain and maintain their dignity by providing showers, laundry, mending and support. We work to establish intentional relationships with the ultimate goal of demonstrating Christ’s love and helping them to reconnect with their families and society.
This all takes place on The Crossing Church campus every Saturday morning from 8:00am – 11:00am and you can be a part of it. Contact Andy Cox to volunteer today!
The Crossing is proud to host a “check-in center” for homeless people to “check in” their belongings for the day – located on the bottom level of The Crossing Church parking structure. This is a ministry for those experiencing homelessness in our community, providing them with a safe place to “check-in” their belongings, allowing them to travel, attend interviews or appointments, prevent theft or damage to personal belongings and ease health issues from transporting belongings.
Participants have access to their “check-in center” during the following times:
Monday through Friday from 6:00am – 7:30am and 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Saturday from 7:45am – 9:45am and 6:30pm – 7:30pm
If you are ready to take the next step in serving your community sign up for volunteer training today!
Come join us the second Saturday of every month as we distribute food to the needy in our local community. Since 1988, this ministry has been committed to feeding the hungry in body, mind and spirit.
Feed The Hungry is a FREE FOOD program for seniors, singles, and low-income families in the cities of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. We distribute a variety of items from canned food, produce, bread, clothes, furniture and the word of Jesus Christ. Every month we deliver over 40,000 pounds of food and provide meals for around 2,000 people.
VOLUNTEER: 2nd Saturday of the month from 8:00 am — 1:00 pm

Share Your English
Did you know that ESL (English as a Second Language) classes are in extremely high demand? People in our community are eager to learn and/or improve their English. This provides an amazing ministry opportunity for you: Share your English! It’s easy and fun. We provide a teacher to lead the class, and as a tutor, you work one on one with a student to help them practice their English. Students in the class are Intermediate and Advanced levels.
We invite you to serve your community and make new friends.
Classes will start on Wednesday, September 10th and will run through November 29th.
In addition to the ESL class, we will be offering storytime/homework assistance for school-age children in another classroom. Volunteers will be available to read stories out loud, perform educational activities, and offer limited homework assistance. This will take place in a fun, but purposeful environment for children in Grades K – 6th to work on their reading and literacy skills.
If you are interested in volunteering to help in the Reading Room, contact Marsha Dopler. This class will be held at the same time as the Share Your English Class.
“The Street Team” works to equip as many people as possible to P.R.A.I. as they walk through life by engaging them in 4 weeks of training and experience walking the streets.
Week 1 – Pray
Week 2 – Relate
Week 3 – Assist
Week 4 – Invite
You can jump in during any week and experience “The Street Team.” Each session runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights departing from The Crossing, The Street Team is off during the month of August and will start again in the month of September.
The hope is that after spending 4 weeks not only learning about how to P.R.A.I. but actually doing it, people will develop some habits that will carry over into how they “walk” through their everyday life.
We will have different guests join us to train and enlighten us to what’s really going on out there on the streets of our community.
