First-Year Focus

First-year students! 


Welcome Freshmen!

The Crossing wants to support you in your first year through a variety of ways:

We gather every Friday from 4:30-5:30pm over Zoom to check in, play games and develop skills to thrive in college.  Contact us for the Zoom link. 

Staff is here to be a support in any way you need – just contact our Campus Minister Karla.  If you fill out our Interest Form ( she will contact you!

Our student Leader, Doug Meier is also available to support you.  Doug is a sophomore and is eager to be a resource for Freshman. Feel free to email Doug at

We invite you to get involved in Worship or any of our small groups.

Consider joining our First Year Focus FB page for more information about opportunities, to connect with others, and for information we might share that we hope is helpful to you:

We also invite you to join our Students of the Crossing FB group where you can get more connected with others and special announcements:

We give away free frozen meals on Tuesdays 3-5 pm and Fridays Noon – 2 pm.  If this would be helpful to you, come on over to the front entry of The Crossing.  For more information go to:

Please know that we are keeping you in prayer during this first-year experience — especially with all the extra challenges of online learning.  Eventually we hope to reopen our building and invite you to study there!
