In January 1999 we held our first public service with around 40 adults and 40 children.
In April 1999 we began meeting in the Tinsel Town movie theatres on Highway 50. We became affectionately known as “the church that meets in Tinsel Town.” Even though we didn’t much appreciate that name, we were grateful for our relationship with Tinsel Town and for God’s provision during those years.
Toward the end of 2001 we began to realize that by the following September we would have to move from Tinsel Town because of our growing attendance. We began to look for new facilities and discovered that the Kenosha Unified School District was building a new middle school.
In August 2002 we started meeting as a church at Mahone Middle School on 60th Street just West of Green Bay Rd. The facility was perfect. It had an auditorium that seated 650 people and had lots of space for our growing children’s ministry.
By the summer of 2004 we could see that God was continuing to grow our church body and that He was putting us into a position to build a building. We had paid off the land we had purchased in 2000 and our building fund goals were on target.
That year we began to draft plans for a building and in the summer of 2005 we broke ground. We moved into our current building on June 1, 2006 and held our first service in this building on June 25, 2006.
God has continued to grow CrossWay and in the spring of 2010 we began in earnest to discuss how to create more parking and seating for our growing attendance. We decided the best immediate solution was to move toward two Sunday services. On Sunday, March 27, we began holding two Sunday services.
