CROSSLINE WOMEN FAQ’S

IT’S OKAY TO HAVE QUESTIONS

Q: “What’s Heartline?”

A: Heartline is the name of the women’s ministry at Crossline Church. Simply put, if you’re a woman and you come to Crossline (or want to start), you’re a part of Heartline at Crossline! We’re a community of gals that desire to do life together as women of God. We’re all about connections of the heart—connections to God and connections to other women. Whether you’re plugged into a weekly Bible Study with us or can only come to church on Sundays, we want you to know you’re a part of this community, so always count yourself in!

Q: “I’m new here! What should I do first?”

A: Get plugged into a group that meets weekly—this is where you’ll study God’s Word daily and find community with other gals that will encourage you in your walk! Choose from Bible Study (recommended), Get Healthy, Prayer or MOPS. Visit our Bible Studies page on our Heartline website. Don’t worry if it’s not the start of a study, we’ll catch you up in no time! Then keep an ear out for Heartline events like Radiate, Heartline Goes Out, and A Little Bit Of Coffee, and bring your friends or come alone to meet some people. Be sure to attend Sunday services where you’ll be encouraged and equipped weekly, sign up for a monthly Belong Class, and be praying about how you can use your time and talents to serve here at Crossline.

Q: “I recently accepted Christ! What’s next?”

A: Congratulations! Please tell us so we can celebrate with you, pray with you, and make sure you’re plugged in! We desire to walk this journey alongside you! Contact our office to grab a copy of “Seek”, written by our Pastor’s wife, Donna Jones. It’s a great, comprehensive, girlfriend’s-guide style book that will help get you excited about your walk with Christ and equipped with foundational truths about the Christian faith. Lastly, don’t be shy—jump straight into a Heartline Bible Study where you’ll meet women who will come alongside you in your journey.

Q: “I need a Mom’s Group… Do you guys have one of those?”

A: We sure do! Have you heard of MOPS: Mothers Of Preschoolers? If you’re the mom of a child between the ages of 0 and 6, you fit the bill to be a part of the MOPS community. MOPS meets Tuesdays mornings from 9-11:30 with childcare for those precious, little ones, allowing you time to rest, refuel, make some new friends, laugh together, cry together, ask tough questions and gain insight and tips on this unique season of motherhood. We think every mom should be a part of an encouraging community like this one, so don’t keep this to yourself—invite your mom friends to join, too!

What Moms (Really) Need for Mother’s Day

Date: May 10, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

“What should I have done differently?” It was an odd question, mainly because it came from my mother–a terrific mom in every respect. Her question got me thinking: why do those who are the best moms worry most they are not? If I had a dime for every woman I’ve heard express some form of… Read More

How to Live Well in the Midst of Stress

Date: April 30, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

All the cute Instagram pictures and Facebook posts are a lie. Even for those of us who are homebodies, forced shelter in place for weeks on end is not a picnic in the park (Oh, the days when that was a possibility!). It doesn’t matter how many closets you’ve cleaned, puzzles you’ve completed, family dinners… Read More

Why Jesus can Relate to You

Date: April 12, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

It’s odd–surreal really–to think that one person’s sickness, on the other side of the globe, has affected every person on our planet. Life as we once knew it has changed. As a result, we’re fearful, we’re lonely, and we’re isolated. We worry and we wonder, how did this all happen? Why did it happen? When… Read More

Why Self-Care Isn’t Optional

Date: March 26, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

“Take care of yourself!” How many times have you heard that phrase? How many times have you said it yourself? Probably more than you can count. But now, more than ever, self-care must be a priority. I know what you’re thinking: I’m busy taking care of everyone else. I’m  busy working from home. I’m so… Read More

How to Help Myself and Others When Life Spins Out of Control: Dealing with COVID-19

Date: March 16, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

I walked into Trader Joe’s just before 9am, in plenty of time to beat the crowds. Or so I thought. Lines of people, with grocery carts heaped high, stretched from the cashiers to the back wall. Shelves were bare and, in some cases, empty. There was not one item in the frozen food section. Not… Read More

Big Hope Days & Little Hope Days

Date: March 4, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

Hope. Life is joyless without it. But how do you get it? How do you maintain it? Occasionally, a friend peels back the layers of her life and allows us to peek inside the inner workings of her heart. In doing so, she unearths a way of thinking, or doing, or living that allows us… Read More

Your Life in the Middle of “This”

Date: February 1, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

“God didn’t come through and I’m not sure I can’t believe anymore.” The confession broke my heart. I found myself wishing I could reach across the table, take her sweet face in my hands, and take away all her pain, hurt and confusion. Can you relate? How do you respond when you feel like God… Read More

Are You a Prayer Worrier or a Prayer Warrior?

Date: January 12, 2020 | Author: Donna Jones

Have you ever prayed hoping to feel a burden released, but don’t? Have you ever prayed wanting to believe, but can’t? Have you ever prayed for something over, and over, and over, but see no change? Most of us can relate. I know I can. However, some people know how to pray in a way… Read More

God’s Gifts to You: Six Gifts You Need Today

Date: December 25, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

“Mom, why do we give gifts at Christmas?” I was driving down the highway when Ashton asked this question from the backseat of our black SUV. She must have been six or seven, tops, and every Christmas, from that one to this, I replay our conversation in my mind. Because while we’ve been planning, shopping,… Read More

Where Is God When I’m Hurting?

Date: December 12, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Where are you, God? You’ve asked the question. So have I. The question of where God is when we hurt is a universal cry–one whispered by all humanity in the face of pain, heartache and suffering. Oh sure, we may never ask the question aloud, but inside our fragile souls, we wonder. We wonder in the… Read More

Thankfulness: Why We Aren’t and Why We Should Be

Date: November 21, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Kylie sat snuggled in a circle of 8thgrade girls. As their youth leader, she was eager to hear how each would answer the ice breaker question:  Name three things you’re thankful for. “Food, family and friends” the first girl declared boldly. “Food, family and friends,” said the second girl, too. As did the third. Not… Read More

“Should I Give Up?” Three Questions to Ask Before You Do

Date: September 20, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Should I give up? I sped down the freeway at 70 miles per hour, but the question swirled around my brain at about 100. Part of me wanted to wave the white flag of surrender; the other part wondered if I should press on. I wasn’t quite sure how to proceed, and I didn’t want… Read More

I Didn’t Think It Would Be Like This (when life throws you a curve ball)

Date: September 6, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

We never saw it coming. I expected this kind of behavior from a non-believer, but from a Christian? Never. The gap between my expectations and my reality left my tender soul shredded into tiny little pieces, like the bits of paper you throw as confetti. Except this was no celebration. I wondered how a heart… Read More

4 Ways to Handle Friendship Hurt in a Healthy Way

Date: August 8, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

“I AM SO MAD AT HER!” The tears in my daughter’s eyes told me she was more than mad. She was hurt. There’s not a female alive who hasn’t been hurt by a friend at least once. We might be 10, or 20, or 40, or 60, but it happens; a friend’s actions or words… Read More

The #1 Struggle for Christians (do you know what it is?)

Date: July 25, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Today’s post is one of the most important I could share. Please read until the end. Share it with someone who needs the truth it contains. I’m pretty sure I know the single biggest issue Christians grapple with. How could I possibly know our biggest struggle? Because I’ve heard the same universal thread whispered by… Read More

How to Talk to Your Kid, Teen or Young Adult About God

Date: July 12, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Several years ago a friend asked how she could broach the topic of God with her teenager. She was a new Christian, so church attendance hadn’t been part of their family routine, although her kids had joined her recent visits and liked it. Then, out of the blue, her eighth-grader complained that he no longer… Read More

I Know I Should Confidently Trust, but HOW?

Date: June 28, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Congratulations Jody Landon!  You’re the winner of the book giveaway!  I know you’ll enjoy reading Exhale. ________________________________________________________________ I hate it when someone tells me I should do something without telling me how.  A “should” without a “how” is like a cake without the frosting–simply not worth having. When we know we should do something, but we don’t… Read More

How to Handle a Plate of Trash (and BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!)

Date: June 11, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

One unrealistic expectation can ignite a hundred unhealthy emotions. I know. I’ve lived it. Likely, so have you. Today two of my favorite author/speaker friends, (seriously, they’re great gals!) Amy Carroll and Cheri Gregory, share their insights into the issue of expectations. As an added bonus, they are giving away a FREE copy of their… Read More

How to Handle Stress Well (and what happens if we don’t)

Date: June 5, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

My southern relatives had a saying I remember to this day: “She’s running like a house-a’fire”. Translation? That person never stops. It was not a compliment. Because they knew something we often forget: A house-a’fire eventually turns to ashes. We are a culture that runs like a house-a’fire; sometimes as a result of our choices,… Read More

How to Have a Great Life: Wisdom from a 90 Year Old

Date: May 24, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

What wisdom does a 90-year-old possess the rest of us wish we had, but don’t? God willing, many of us will find out someday, but my mother-in-law knows now. We celebrated her 90thbirthday this weekend. In honor of her birthday, I asked what she wanted. Her answer was pretty similar to how I suspect I’ll… Read More

If You Feel Far from God (even a little)

Date: May 4, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

Being married to a pastor comes with definite advantages. I can get my Bible questions answered at the drop of a hat, or receive godly counsel about how to handle a difficult person (hypothetically, of course–wink, wink) without making an appointment. These conversations usually take place while I make dinner and JP sits perched at… Read More

Do You Notice the Cross?

Date: April 17, 2019 | Author: Donna Jones

If you walk through my house you’ll notice a variety of crosses scattered throughout. Not a ton–just enough that a casual observer would realize we are Christians. The crosses have become so familiar to me now, I hardly notice they are there. Until today. This morning I walked through our quiet rooms before everyone else… Read More
