Ministries
Loving God. Loving People.
These are more than tag lines at Crystal Lake Christian Church. It is what we do in that we love God and we love people. It is also Who we serve, a loving God and by the power of the Spirit, who we seek to be, a loving people who are constantly being refined into the image of Christ.
In support of this we have developed ministries which help us to embody these truths through worship, fellowship, and service. We believe the church is a united body of diverse believers, each having an important role in serving our risen Lord, each other, the Crystal Lake community, and the world. Our ministries are organized into departments to help us better function and help people find their place to serve.
If you would like to know more about how to connect in any area of ministry or need information about how a ministry can be of service to you, please reach out to the person listed with the department.
