CrossPointe Church – Contemporary, Relevant, Friendly, Christian Church in Northwest Austin

Tweet My family and I have been attending CrossPointe Church in north Austin since early 2005.  My wife had attended their church-wide garage sale the previous year, and when we began to look for a new church home, we decided to pay CrossPointe a visit because she remembered how nice the people were.  We felt…
