OUR HISTORY

Gracepoint was started as a “mission plant” of Lutheran Church of the Risen Savior in Green Valley.

In 2006-07, Jim Halsted a staff member at Risen Savior started forming a small group in Green Valley. They were called Sahuarita Lutheran Fellowship.

 August 2007, Steve Patton a seminary student arrived to begin vicarage at Risen Savior, with the intention of starting a new congregation in Sahuarita.

In February 2008, Vicar Steve began working with the small group, envisioning and teaching Sunday School on the porch of Risen Savior. By fall 2008, Steve was ordained and the group began meeting in his home, with the great help of Myra his wife. At this time the new name was decided upon by the group, Gracepoint Lutheran Church.

In February 2009, worship services began in the Sahuarita High School Cafeteria. The group continued to meet there until Sept 2011.

2011 was a busy year for Gracepoint. We purchased the old Sahuarita Christian Academy property at our current location in February. In March we were officially chartered as a congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. And in September we began worshipping at the new site.

In 2016, we changed our name from Gracepoint to Crosspoint to minimize confusion with other church names in the area and to reflect our deepening commitment to the mission of Christ our Savior, who calls His disciples to take up the cross and follow Him. (Matthew 16.24, Mark 8.34, Luke 9.23)

In September 2018, Crosspoint extended a call to Rev. Robert Stevens. Pastor Stevens accepted the call and was installed on October 28th, 2018.


THE MEANING OF CROSSPOINT

As a Christian church we believe that no other historical event was more important for the salvation of man than the day Jesus died on the cross to restore the brokenness caused by our sin.  Jesus is both God who came down from heaven and the only perfect man who has ever lived on earth. Only Jesus was worthy of being the ultimate sacrifice to pay for our sins. This makes the symbol of the cross a powerful reminder of God’s grace for us and the lengths that God will go in order to save us.

Crosspoint seeks to be a church that humbly remembers our need for God’s grace and mercy. So we gather for worship before an altar at the point of the cross. We regularly receive the Lord’s Supper at this altar for the forgiveness of our sins, just as Jesus instructed His disciples to do “the night when He was betrayed.” (1 Corinthians 11:23)

For us, the point of the cross is also a symbol of hope. On the third day after His death (Easter Sunday), Jesus rose from the tomb alive, appearing to many people and living among them for many days. Jesus’ saving mission was complete. Before He returned to heaven, He promised He would come again and fully restore the world and those who believe in Him. As gruesome as the cross event surely was, it is also the day that death and sin were defeated and eternal life and salvation were won for all people…if we will look “to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2)
